PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) is a cutting-edge treatment that uses a patient’s blood to trigger regeneration within hair and skin. Platelet Rich Plasma is created by centrifuging the patient’s blood.
These platelets contain several growth factors such as platelet-derived growth factor, vascular endothelial growth factor, epidermal growth factor, fibroblast growth factor, insulin-like growth factors that shift the state of follicular stem cell from dormant to active and also facilitate angiogenesis around the hair follicle promoting hair growth.
The re-injection of the plasma stimulates the release of these growth factors by 5 to 10 times which encourages repairing of tissues, reforming blood vessels and collagen synthesis. The therapy can be used to treat both hair fall and skin rejuvenation.
