Going bald isn’t the battle it used to be. Thanks to celebrities like Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, and LL Cool J, a hairless head isn’t just acceptable; it’s actually enviable in men of all ages.
PRP treatments can enhance hair restoration and other cosmetic plastic surgery procedures. The platelets, one type of blood cells, contain growth factors that can trigger cell proliferation, speed healing and stimulate tissue regeneration in the treated area.

How can blood help regrow hair?
Researchers are able to regrow hair in balding patients with a series of injections known as PRP-Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (PRP). PRP is nothing new, but experts only recently have begun investigating its potential role in hair regrowth. The treatment involves drawing the patient’s blood and spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the red and white cells. After adding nutrients like protein, the platelets and growth factors are collected from the sample and injected into the scalp where the hair is thinning. The procedure is non-surgical and requires only local anesthesia.

Sports medicine has used PRP for years to treat injuries to the Achilles tendon, joints and muscles by stimulating stem cells. In the case of hair loss, the injected platelets prompt inactive or newly implanted hair follicles to enter an active growth phase, causing the hair to start growing again.
