Hair Regeneration Therapy – Platelet Rich Plasma

Imagine regenerating your hair with your own chemistry and cells.

Promoting Hair Growth

PRP can be used to stimulate and nourish follicles for hair growth. Highly concentrated blood plasma contains platelets that release growth factors.  These growth factors have been shown to generate new hair and improve the density and health of existing hair.

As hair follicles survive on the nutrition they get from the blood supply, the introduction of platelets by administering PRP in the area of damaged hair follicles will amplify the body’s naturally occurring wound healing mechanism. This leads to healthier hair follicles or hair roots, resulting in improved hair restoration.

Post PRP Treatment is recommended for hair transplant recipients to further promote healing and inspire growth.  Hair follicles survive on the nutrition received from the blood supply.  If we introduce platelets by administering PRP in the area of damaged hair follicles, the process amplifies the body’s naturally occurring wound healing mechanism.

Reinvigorate Dormant Hair Follicles

Clinical studies concluded that enhanced hair growth of transplanted hair was observed after the use of PRP, which lead to further research on the effect of PRP on non-transplanted hair follicles.  The study hypothesized that platelet growth factors can ‘wake-up’ dormant hair follicles and begin the production of new hair.

PRP was then applied topically to the scalp, forcing the induction factors at the injury site. Enhanced hair growth and increased hair diameter were noted over the next few months.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an advanced treatment that Dr. Sillins uses to help repair damaged or injured tissues in your body. This minimally invasive procedure helps initiate your system’s regenerative process by utilizing the growth factors that platelets are known to contain.  PRP therapy is autologous, meaning it is derived from you, the patient…therefore reducing the risk of rejection or allergic reaction.

The result of the treatment is the natural stimulation of growth factors moving towards the treated area. There are no known side effects of PRP, although you may occasionally experience minor swelling or pain near the injection points for a short period of time.

 

     

Each patient received 2-intradermal PRP procedures, 4-weeks apart.  Patient after pics were taken 6-months post treatment.
