PRP (Platlet Rich Plasma)
PLATELET RICH PLASMA
PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, is a regenerative injection in which a patient’s own platelets are used to accelerate the healing of injured muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints. PRP injections use the individual patient’s own healing system to improve musculoskeletal problems. It can also improve function and reduce pain in cases of tendonitis, chronic tendinosis, and even osteoarthritis.
PRP can be used as a hair restoration treatment as it contains essential proteins and growth factors that stimulate natural hair growth. It does this by increasing cell survival, proliferation, and differentiation. It is applied to the scalp every 3 months; most patients see results in 3-4 treatments.
