Hair Loss Treatment in Fort Lauderdale, FL
What is PRP for hair loss?
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy for hair loss involves a 3 to 4-step medical procedure that uses an individual’s own growth factors to stimulate hair growth.
How does PRP for hair loss work?
Blood is composed of two main components; red blood cells and plasma. The plasma contains white blood cells and platelets, which are high in growth factors. Growth factors help heal and grow new cells by signaling cells to function.
How is it done?
- A small sample of blood is taken from the individual’s arm.
- The blood is placed in a centrifuge where the blood is spun to separate the PRP from the blood.
- A microneedling device is used over the affected portion of the scalp to create tiny wounds. A portion of the PRP is then applied directly to that area to allow good penetration (this is an optional enhancement in the treatment process).
- The remainder of PRP is injected directly into the scalp.
This procedure is recommended once monthly for a series of at least three treatments.
