What is PRP Therapy?
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a simple, three-step process that has been shown to treat hair loss in both men and women. This injection takes platelet rich plasma from your arm. Blood rich in platelets can help repair blood vessels that are damaged, which will help stimulate hair growth in the scalp.
When you first meet with Dr. Wooming, you will discuss your goals about your hair loss, and then you both will work together to decide if PRP therapy is right for you. PRP therapy is not for all types of hair loss, which is why it is important to meet with a hair loss dermatologist such as Dr. Wooming!
If you qualify for PRP therapy, you will meet with Dr. Wooming over the course of a few months and undergo the hair regrowth process. This is a non-surgical procedure, and begins by drawing blood from your arm. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge, which is a machine that spins the blood rapidly to get the highest concentration of platelets. Finally, a numbing solution is applied to the scalp and the blood is injected just underneath the scalp to stimulate hair growth.
