Pure Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is a revolutionary, all-natural procedure used to regenerate hair growth. The growth factors in the Pure PRP concentrate stimulate new blood vessels to grow for the hair follicles, which promotes the production of hair follicles and even thickens the hair shafts. New research is showing that introducing the concentration of growth factors and white blood cells actually stimulates the growth of hair follicles. This reverses hair miniaturization, which is commonly seen in androgenetic alopecia.
Dr. Mik will assess the degree of hair thinning, perform a simple hair analysis, and recommend injection sites on the scalp that need to be injected with Pure PRP. After a small amount of blood is taken from the patient to produce the Pure PRP concentration, the scalp is cleaned and numbed with a local anesthetic. Calcium-activated Pure PRP is injected via syringe and applied topically with a derma-roller. The derma-roller creates microscopic channels that allow the PRP to penetrate deep into the skin on the scalp where it stimulates the growth of hair follicles and creates new blood vessels.
In order for the treatment to be comfortable for the patient, their scalp has a local anesthetic injected around in a circular pattern about 10 minutes before the procedure.
The office visit usually takes between 90-120 minutes but the procedure will only take about 30 minutes to complete.
There is not any downtime for the patient for this procedure. Aesthetically there may be some redness of the treated areas of the scalp and minor bruising for a few days after the procedure.
PRP treatment is extremely safe. Because PRP is produced from your own blood, there is no risk of an allergic reaction. In addition, PRP contains a concentrated amount of white blood cells, your natural defenders against infections. As a result, infection is extremely rare with our PRP treatment.
Initially, 3 to 6 treatments 4-6 weeks apart are recommended for optimal results. Thereafter, maintenance treatments are recommended every one to two years depending on hair type.
