What is PRP Hair Restoration Therapy?

In simple terms, it’s a three step process:

  1. a patient’s blood is drawn and put into a high-tech centrifuge
  2. the blood is separated into three layers – red blood cells, platelet-poor plasma and platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
  3. the separated platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the scalp in and around the areas that need hair restoration

The platelet-rich plasma helps repair blood vessels, promotes cell growth and healing, stimulates collagen production, and promotes hair growth by prolonging the growing phase of the hair cycle. (1) PRP is highly concentrated plasma, containing proteins that stimulate hair growth and encourage the body’s production of collagen, and much more.

When used for hair loss, PRP is injected into the scalp where there are areas or hair thinning. This results in natural hair growth and promotes a healthier scalp. Injections are performed over a series of appointments spaced out to maximize their effectiveness, factoring in considerations such as genetics, the pattern and amount of hair restoration required, the underlying reason for the hair thinning or loss, age, and hormones.

And best of all, each treatment is completed in about 30 minutes! PRP is safe and effective with little to no downtime!

Other benefits:

  • You will need maintenance treatments to continue to see results
  • Can be done as a stand-alone treatment for patients with thinning hair
  • Or as an adjunct to NeoGraft method to improve the results of transplant and donor sites
  • Ultimately improves graft survival rate.

What is unique about the PRP technology at The Jacobs Center?

Our practice has invested in a clinical-grade PureSpin PRP system the highest quality technology for the separation of the platelet-rich plasma, yielding the highest platelet concentration to ensure that patients receive the highest volume of deliverable platelets for each treatment, which then impacts the efficacy of the treatment itself.
