PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatments are a 3-step medical procedure where a patient’s blood is drawn, processed using a centrifuge, and then injected into the scalp to help treat hair loss. PRP triggers natural hair growth and maintains it by increasing the blood supply to the hair follicle. These concentrated platelets also contribute to increased hair strand thickness. Platelet-rich plasma has a variety of uses and benefits. PRP therapy has been used since the 1980s for various treatments such as wound healing, including of injured tendons, ligaments, and muscles.
PRP Therapy is a 3-step process. PRP therapy for hair loss requires 3 initial treatments spread out 3 to 6 weeks apart. Maintenance treatments are required every 6 to 9 months.
