PRP therapy strengthens the hair. It increases the hair diameter and prevents the thinning of hair. Injecting platelets and activating growth factors can increase the blood supply to the hair follicles and thicken the hair shafts. It has been found effective in increasing the density of hair.

Steps to PRP hair treatment

PRP hair treatment is a simple 3-step procedure whereby the patient’s own blood forms the basis of the treatment. First, the blood is drawn and placed in a centrifuge. This is a machine which will rapidly spin the blood sample in order to separate it into fluids of varying density.

Once the machine has spun the sample for about 10 minutes, you will be left with three layers. These are the red blood cells, platelet-poor plasma and platelet-rich plasma. This last fluid is the most valuable and needs to be separated, since the regenerative platelets are as much as five times more concentrated in PRP than in regular blood.

This platelet-rich plasma is extracted with a syringe and is then injected into the scalp in order to help promote hair growth in balding areas. PRP treatment is suitable for most people, apart from those who have a chronic disease such as liver or skin, or if you are on certain medications such as blood thinners.

Use before a hair transplant

As part of new innovative techniques in hair transplantation, the platelet-rich plasma can be incorporated into the surgical process itself. After your grafts have been extracted from your donor area, they are vulnerable outside the body once they have been removed from their nutrient source.

Therefore, they need to be stored in a nutrient rich solution to keep them healthy and maintain the strength of the follicles before they are placed into the recipient area. This nutrient rich liquid can also include PRP in order to increase the viability of the hair follicles and improve the recovery following the procedure.
