PRP therapy is a form of regenerative medicine that enhances the natural growth factors your body uses for tissue healing.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses a patient’s own platelets concentration in the form of injections, to accelerate the healing and growth of the musculoskeletal system, skin, and hair.
PRP comprises of a range of growth factors and proteins that accelerate tissue repair.
Steps of PRP therapy
The steps for PRP injections are as follows:
- Drawing blood from a vein in the arm by a medical professional. The blood sample is placed in a centrifugation machine.
- The machine spins at a fast rate & separates blood components in three layers:
- platelet-poor plasma
- platelet-rich plasma
- red blood cells
- Platelets are extracted using a syringe by a medical professional
- The platelets are injected directly into the injured or diseased body tissue. In this case, targeted areas of the scalp. It interacts with hair follicles, and initiates healing and growth processes, promoting the natural hair growth. The entire process takes about an hour. The patient can return to their regular activities without any limitations after receiving PRP treatment.
