Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

The components of PRP have been discussed in the skin section so please refer to this area to learn more about the qualities of this substance. We use PRP also in hair restoration after the grafts are placed. We suggest that the patient see us for PRP therapy every four to six weeks for three sessions, then twice a year for treatment. This involves obtaining your blood and processing it in a centrifuge to make a platelet rich component which is then injected into the scalp. This can be performed with or without sedation depending on the patient’s wishes.
