Sometimes (erroneously) referred to as the Stem Cell Therapy, PRP is a popular cosmetic procedure, advertised for its rejuvenating and recovering properties. Research has proven that PRP is a useful addition to hair transplantation. This treatment can shorten healing times, stimulate the transplanted grafts and improve the long-term results of surgical hair restoration.
What is the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy?
Platelet-rich plasma (or PRP) therapy leverages the body's natural ability to heal. More specifically, the process of preparation of this solution involves extracting plasma from a small quantity of a patient's own blood with the help of a laboratory centrifuge and concentrating it. This component of blood contains elements that are crucial during a healing process.
The final PRP solution is then injected into the affected area of the scalp. During a hair restoration procedure, PRP is administered after the implantation stage. This solution is injected into the scalp tissue. Injections during a hair transplant are done under local anaesthesia.
