Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Cleveland - Hair

PRP HairThe Platelet Rich Plasma treatment, also known as PRP, is a procedure that processes a patient’s own blood through a specialized centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the platelets which are rich with natural growth factors. The purpose of PRP is to deliver a high concentration of the powerful growth factors to the scalp to stimulate inactive hair follicles into an active growth phase. Unlike hair transplant, PRP is a non-invasive procedure with virtually no downtime and considerably less cost. PRP can be used in men and especially in women with thinning hair where hair transplant is not ideal.

A single PRP session can produce results that can last up to 5 years  

A small amount of the patient’s blood is drawn and placed into a specialized centrifuge where it is spun, separating the red blood cells from the plasma, then spun again separating the plasma from the platelets and natural growth factors (***See below for more information about PureSpin® centrifuge). The skin is microneedled using the Rejuvapen®, then platelets containing growth factors are applied directly to the scalp. Some of the platelet rich plasma will also be injected into the dormant hair follicles for greater results. In the majority of patients, new hair growth can be seen within 30 days.

PRP can also be injected into dormant hair follicles by Dr. Parry for increased results

This procedure is appealing because the patient’s own blood is being used, therefore, eliminating the risk of an allergic reaction and because hair growth is stimulated by the body’s own growth factors. Dr. Parry exclusively uses the PureSpin® PRP to ensure the best possible results.
