PRP Hair Loss Treatment
The new PRP (Platelet Rich Protein) Hair Loss Treatment is giving hope to millions of men and women with thinning hair … without the need for surgery or drugs.
PRP is an injection of the patient’s own platelets into the scalp. Growth factors in the platelets stimulate the regrowth and thickening of hair follicles by renewing the blood supply and supplying the proper nutrients to help regenerate and replace receding hair.
A small amount of blood is drawn from a vein in the arm. The vial is then placed in a centrifuge and rapidly spun down to separate the platelet rich plasma from the red blood cells and plasma.
Once separated, the platelet rich plasma is activated to release essential growth factors and signaling special proteins. Because the blood is collected directly from the patient, there is virtually no risk of intolerance, allergic reaction, or rejection.
When used with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), the Eclipse MicroPen™ can stimulate a renewed blood supply and proper nutrients to deprived hair follicles, which can work to restore the hair growth process. The renewed growth helps to fill in areas of receding or thinning hair. PRP is a natural serum derived directly from your own cells to initiate regeneration. The Eclipse MicroPen™ allows us to get a deeper penetration of PRP infused into the skin, amplifying our hair restoration abilities.
A numbing agent can be applied to the desired treatment area to maximize patient comfort. The scalp may be tender for up to 24 hours after treatment, but this should quickly subside. One treatment per month for up to three months is typically required for optimal results, and long-lasting results can be maintained with follow-up treatments every 6 to 12 months.
