As platelet-rich plasma therapy continues to gain acclaim across the medical community for its tissue-rejuvenating properties, it’s use as a hair restoration treatment option is revolutionary. Like with other clinical applications, including arthritis, this treatment essentially uses a patient’s own blood to promote repair and regeneration of aged or damaged tissues.
Blood has two main components, red blood cells and plasma; plasma is made of white blood cells and platelets, and those platelets are rich in growth factors. Those factors act as messengers to signal cells to start functioning, which is what stimulates hair follicle activity and promotes new growth.
The patented hourglass tube is a uniquely versatile tool that is the first of its kind to be capable of producing platelet-rich plasma that’s tailored to your aesthetic requirements – all without sacrificing quality, quantity or time.
The process begins with a standard blood draw from a client’s arm. Next, the blood is centrifuged to separate the plasma from the red blood cells. The resulting platelet-rich plasma then gets injected directly into the scalp.
A meticulous process of injections across the scalp over areas of thinning hair begins. The whole procedure typically takes less than half an hour. Patients feel minimal discomfort; bruising can occur, and Tylenol or ice packs can be used for any irritation or pain.
This hair-restoration option offers excellent results with minimal risk.
