PRP therapy is a revolutionary new nonsurgical cosmetic enhancement treatment. It uses existing growth factors present in the blood for rejuvenating the skin and treating conditions, such as baldness and hair loss.
Growth factors are a type of protein found in the blood platelets. They play a key role in regeneration and wound healing. Platelet-rich plasma, during PRP treatment, is extracted from the blood and injected within the scalp for promoting hair growth.
EllEve Med Spa provides safe and proven skin rejuvenation and hair restoration procedures to patients in Woodland Hills, San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, California, and surrounding locations.
Steps in PRP Therapy
The treatment generally involves three steps:
Your treatment provider will draw a small amount of blood from the arm or some other body area. This will be run through a centrifugal machine for 10 – 15 minutes.
Platelet rich plasma is separated from the red blood cells, platelet poor plasma and other substances in the blood.
The platelet rich plasma extracted from your blood is then injected into the scalp.
PRP Hair Restoration Concept
For the longest time researchers believed that hair follicles which stop generating hair are dead. However, according to recent studies, these unproductive hair follicles are just dormant, injured, or damaged. They can be rejuvenated for generating new hair in the long term with the right treatment. PRP hair restoration is dedicated to helping patients achieve this.
Your body contains platelet rich plasma (PRP) which contains powerful growth factors. The treatment provider will extract this plasma and inject it into the affected areas of your scalp. This will help in activating dead adult stem cells present in the compromised hair follicle.
Growth factors will also work towards promoting the regeneration of local cells and developing new blood vessels for revitalizing hair follicles.
