Made famous by Kim Kardashian and coined the “vampire lift”, the biochemical treatment PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) has become increasingly popular in various medical fields – and for good reason. The healing extract obtained from your own blood is the secret to its success and versatility, making it an all natural treatment. Platelet-rich plasma contains the potent secret ingredient: valuable Growth factors.
Growth factors are proteins that stimulate cell growth, proliferation, and division by binding to specific receptors found on the membrane of cells. This translates to quicker healing rates of tissues and increased production of collagen in aging cells.
Our personal favorite use of PRP? Aiding our clients in regaining their confidence by combatting hair loss. PRP hair therapy is on the rise and for good reason. PRP injections have been clinically proven to stimulate hair growth in areas of thinning on the scalp.
How does PRP Hair Therapy work?
PRP contains a reservoir of growth factors which stimulate various development related functions in numerous cells. PRP happens to hold all four essential Growth Factors for hair growth.
- Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF)
- Epidermal growth factor (EGF)
- Insuline-like growth factor (IGF)
- Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)
How does PRP hair treatment stop hair loss?
As cited in a study published in 2017, VEGF and PDGF are the most crucial growth factors in hair growth. The study conclusions include the indication that both men and women with androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness) had significantly lower levels of VEGF in contrast with their healthy counterparts. Since it has the most far-reaching effect on hair growth and its cycle, in its absence hair loss is guaranteed. In PRP hair treatment, VEGF is an active element of its composition which will be injected into the scalp initiating growth.
