Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration
What is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma also known as PRP is a concentration of platelets from your own blood that aids in tissue regeneration. Platelets are a type of cell in your blood that releases growth factors. These growth factors can stimulate collagen production and tissue generation. This safe and simple procedure is the golden fluid that naturally gives nutrients to boost hair growth.
PRP treatments is a natural option to also help improve skin texture, smooth fine lines, simulates collagen and tissue regeneration, under-eye dark circles, under-eye puffiness, scars, wrinkles and can be a natural alternative to facial filler.
While you are numbing Dr.Bhogal will draw a small amount of blood into a sterile tube which is then placed in a centrifuge to begin the PRP process. The centrifuge spins the fluid incredibly fast where it then separates your blood into plasma that is rich in platelets. After this, PRP is prepared for treatment and Master Injector Dr.Bhogal will inject it into the desired area on the scalp where the hair has thinned. This treatment takes upwards of an hour with numbing being the longest part of the treatment. After treatment a 2 week post injection appointment is made. This appointment is very important because Master Injector Dr.Bhogal can make sure the treatment area has healed properly. Dr.Bhogal and her team will be with you the whole recovery time!
