HOW IS HAIR PRP TREATMENT PERFORMED?
PRP – (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a non-surgical alternative in aiding against hair loss. The entire procedure on average takes around 45 minutes to an hour and it is a noninvasive method.
The treatment plan includes drawing up a small amount of blood which later is spun in a centrifuge for 14 minutes. Meanwhile the scalp is disinfected, a topical numbing cream is applied, and a derma-roller is performed.
Once the platelets and growth factors are separated, then a very small size needle is used (similar size to a Botox ® needle) to inject the growth factors into the thinning areas of the scalp. Then another procedure should be scheduled for a repeat series 6 to 8 weeks apart from the initial session.
