So what is PRP or platelet rich plasma?
The PRP shot for the scalp involves collecting 10 mL of the patient’s blood and spinning it down in a centrifuge in specially designed FDA approved tubes for collection. This centrifuge process separates the platelets and the plasma from its blood source. This is done in the most sterile controlled fashion allowable. We then draw off the plasma with the enrich concentration of platelets and plasma. The patient clients scalp is cleaned in a sterile fashion and then is anesthetized with the topical local anesthetic. Are doctors or are well-trained aesthetician will then proceed to make injections in those areas that are devoid of adequate follicular growth. The entire procedure takes about one hour and the patient can return to work if they so desire there may be some swelling or redness but this goes away in about 24 to 48 hours patients are instructed not to shampoo their hair for 24 hours new hair thickness can be seen in 3 to 4 weeks but the true test is about 3 to 4 months. Retreatment may be required in six months to as much as a year.*
So what is in the plasma/platelet?
PRP contains a variety of factors which include growth factors and powerful stimulating proteins called cytokines and progenitor cells. The cells recruit the patient’s own stem cells to encourage growth particular to the area in which the PRP is injected in other words actual hair follicle losses slowed hair follicle growth is encouraged and thickness ensues after the treatment. We feel hear a brilliance medical spa that PRP injections for the scalp is the latest and best hope for aiding patients with both female and male pattern baldness. Naturally people who are on steroids or who have localized infections or inflammatory skin diseases are not candidates for this treatment.
