Learn About Platelet Rich Plasma Treatments
Patelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are gaining popularity for a variety of conditions. Generally speaking the treatment uses a patient’s own blood cells to accelerate healing in a specific area of the body.
At Franklin Dermatology Group we use PRP as a non-surgical alternative for treating female and male pattern hair loss. The treatment involves injections of your own blood platelets into the vascular layer of the scalp.
How does PRP work for hair regrowth?
- Increases blood supply to the follicle
- Increases hair shaft size (thickness)
- Triggers and maintains the growth phase
- Controls hair growth cycle
- Decreases hair loss
What is the process of PRP?
A special collection tube is used to draw your blood and is placed in a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins the blood sample to separate and concentrate the platelets. The concentrated platelets are drawn up into a syringe and are then strategically injected into the areas of your scalp that need improvement. There is little to no recovery time. The protocol requires a series of 3 treatments to start, and then additional injections are recommended every 6-12 months to maintain results.
