The Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) commonly used in hair restoration is “autologous,” meaning that it is derived from the patient’s own blood. To obtain PRP, a patient’s blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate the solid from liquid components and platelet activators, such as thrombin, calcium chloride and sometimes collagen, are added. The separated “solid” portion of the blood is PRP (platelet rich plasma).  PRP is then placed into a syringe and injected into the area of hair loss.  When used to stimulate hair growth, multiple treatment sessions are required. Some improvement (in reversing miniaturization) can be expected in the first 2-6 months. The treatments must be continued periodically to maintain any improvement.

 

The Procedure

Blood is collected. About 2-4 vials of blood are drawn on the day of the procedure.

A centrifuge is then used to separate plasma and platelets from the red blood cells.

PRP is extracted and mix with a vitamin rich serum to activate the cells.

The platelet rich plasma is then spread onto the scalp. The Rejuvapen is then used to push the PRP into the skin and glides freely and easily over the tissue.

PRP is applied with either the Rejuvapen and/ or injection. The Rejuvapen pushes the PRP into the dermal layer. The remaining PRP can be injected into specific areas of the patient that need the most improvement.

If PRP therapy is appropriate, we can begin your PRP treatment at the time of your consultation with Dr. Alison. After the initial treatment session, we will administer the next two subsequent treatments at 4 week intervals. Additional treatments are given at three-month intervals depending on the response.
