Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a blood product made from your blood that contains plasma and platelets. Plasma is the liquid portion of your blood, and platelets are the tiny cells that stop cuts from bleeding.
Platelets also contain specialized proteins and growth factors that initiate the repair and regeneration process at the site of an injury. PRP has a higher concentration of platelets, enhancing your body’s natural healing abilities.
In addition to healing injuries, PRP is used for aesthetics to improve appearance or rejuvenate hair follicles. Your provider at Meshkin Medical injects PRP into your scalp or face to stimulate the body’s repair process to get the desired results.
Meshkin Medical specializes in hair restoration treatments and recommends PRP for patients in the initial stages of hair loss. Hair thinning and balding may occur for many reasons but usually involves a slowdown in hair growth due to a loss of hair follicle function.
PRP works best when initiated during the early stages of hair loss when the dormant hair follicles are more easily reactivated. The experts at Meshkin Medical can talk to you about their hair restoration treatment options and provide recommendations that can help you achieve your goals.
Your provider at Meshkin Medical creates your PRP by spinning a sample of blood in a centrifuge, separating the platelets from the larger red blood cells and white blood cells. Then, the platelets are added to the plasma.
Your provider injects the PRP into the areas of your scalp where hair is thinning or balding. They recommend repeating these injections once a month for three months, and then every three to six months. They may combine PRP injections with ACell® therapy to prolong the healing benefits.
You should see improvements in hair growth about three months after starting PRP for hair loss.
