Blood is drawn in our clinic as though you are having routine blood testing at your primary care physician’s office. The blood is spun in a centrifuge and the PRP is separated and removed from the rest of the blood. The PRP is taken from your body and is specially prepared by spinning down the blood cells to a high concentration. Our PRP System is a closed sterile system and the platelets are concentrated to 3X the normal blood values. The system eliminates granulocytes which hurts tissue regeneration and wound healing. An anesthesia block is given to nerves of the scalp so the patient does not feel any pain. The highly concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP) is then injected into the scalp. The patient’s hair is then washed and the patient may drive home without any assistance. No sedation or any medication is given during the procedure to inhibit the ability to drive or use machinery. PRP contains many growth factors that stimulate the hair follicle growth. PRP can be used preoperatively, intraoperatively, or post operatively. Some patient’s chose to have PRP performed every 3 to 4 months as early data suggests regular or semiannual PRP treatments that may stimulate hair growth.
For those who want to give an extra boost to their hair transplant procedure, PRP is an option.
Based on the scalp condition, it requires 4-6 sessions. One session can be taken in a month.
