About PRP Hair
Platelets are one of four primary components of blood (the other three are red blood cells, white blood cells, and plasma). Platelets promote cell growth and regeneration. As the term “platelet-rich plasma” suggests, platelets are generally about five times more concentrated in PRP than in regular blood. This concentration of platelets is useful because platelets secrete growth factors that assist in wound healing and tissue regrowth
When it comes to hair loss, platelets, injected deep into the scalp reach the bottom of the hair follicle, they stimulate a specialized population of cells named dermal papilla cells, which play a critical role in hair growth. It is recommended that the procedure be repeated once a month for three months. The reason is the fact that there are three phases of hair growth; the growth phase, the rest phase, and the fall phase. PRP works during the growth phase, as it fortifies the follicle, so less of the hair sheds during the fall phase.
