Platelet Rich Plasma for Hair
PRP stands for ‘Platelet Rich Plasma’ and it produces a rejuvenating and tightening effect on your skin. The procedure involves collecting blood from the patient and centrifuging it so that the plasma with platelets collects in the tube. PRP obtained from your blood contains platelets which work in the body to stimulate the regrowth of elastin and collagen fibers.
A Meso injector is also known as the u225 gun is then used to open channels for product penetration on your scalp; the PRP is then injected just below the surface of the scalp to promote circulation to rejuvenate the hair follicles through a process of targeted tissue regeneration. This treatment works best on patients who have thinning of the hair rather than complete hair loss. PRP can also be used to increase healing and hair growth after hair transplant surgery.
