Many experts and doctors related to hair loss treatments believe that PRP is a safe and efficient procedure to treat hair loss even though there is not enough research about the PRP.
Three Steps of PRP Therapy
As we mentioned above, PRP hair restoration procedures consist of three steps.
- In the first step, doctors drew your blood from your body –usually from your arm– and put it to a centrifuge to separate fluids of different densities in your blood.
- In the second step, your blood will be separated into three layers after ten minutes in the centrifuge. These layers include red blood cells, platelet-poor plasma, and platelet-rich plasma.
- In the last step, doctors will draw platelet-rich plasma (PRP) up into a syringe and inject it into your scalp.
All in all, PRP is a therapy that is used to treat hair loss by injecting PRP (platelet-rich plasma) taken from your blood into your scalp to increase the blood supply and increase the thickness of the hair shaft.
