However, many don’t know that blood also contains fundamental growth factors designed to recover and heal. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy harnesses these regenerative growth factors by activating them to promote natural healing. This enhancement is done by stimulating the underlying tissue to speed up tissue and collagen production to create smoother/plumper skin and fuller hair.
Hair growth is a popular treatment choice for PRP. PRP stimulates hair follicles to produce a healthy environment to strengthen and thicken current hair follicles. PRP also speeds up the growth of hair transplants for clients who have done that procedure. Post-treatment, you may return to normal activity immediately; though the scalp may need protection from sun exposure and excessive irritation.
Please note, not everyone is an ideal candidate. Patients with an active infection related to the scalp area, history of a viral infection (shingles, blood-clotting disorder), on blood-thinning medications (aspirin, immunosuppressive drugs) would not be ideal candidates. As well, if the hair follicles are completely lost, this procedure is less likely to assist in producing viable results.
What is the difference between Harvest® PRP and other PRP technologies?
Harvest® PRP typically can extract up to 20 times more platelets compared to the 12 other PRP technologies on the market Thus, Harvest® PRP have up to 20 times more of the essential growth factors for potentially stimulating collagen growth. Harvest® double spin methods produce significantly more platelet with higher concentrations of growth factors.
PRP is produced using the Harvest® SmartPrep® Multicellular Processing System, which delivers the highest concentration and yield of platelets when compared to a multitude of other systems* (Disclaimer: This information is provided by Harvest® Company).
How will I look post-treatment?
Post-treatment injection sites may have some redness and swelling. Some patients may have some bruising that can remain up to a week.
How does PRP strengthen hair follicles?
One reason that hair may thin is caused by low hair density around hair follicles. On average, two or three strands of hair grow from a single follicle. Individuals with thin hair, usually have only one strand of hair grow from the follicle. PRP may increase the number of hair strands per each follicle, enhancing overall hair density.
What are the two phases of PRP?
Phase I: Phase I involves blood extraction from the patient; this blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate the blood’s components. Platelets are obtained and may multiply; this multiplication process generates growth factors, which may ultimately be served as stimuli for the scalp’s cells.
Phase 2: Phase 2 involves platelet/growth factors are provided to the scalp. This process promotes healing of punctures as well as hair growth. Different vitamins, minerals, and hyaluronic acid may be provided after PRP treatment.
What are the possible side effects of PRP Therapy?
Bruises and inflammation, including swelling and redness, are the most common side effects. They typically appear immediately after the procedure and clear within four to six days.
Since PRP contains your own blood, there is little chance of cross-contamination or infection. Rare, but serious, complications can include infection and scarring.
Who isn’t an ideal candidate for PRP treatment?
As the patient’s own blood is used to prepare PRP, the risk of disease transmissions, allergic reactions, toxicity or rejection is avoided. Other contraindications include patients:
LED LIGHT THERAPY is especially effective at treating hair loss, it works by increasing blood flow in the scalp and stimulates the metabolism in hair follicles, resulting in more hair production.
When PRP and LED LIGHT THERAPY are performed together, the results are even more impressive!
