Your own blood is collected and spun in a centrifuge, this process seperates layers of blood cells as
platelet-poor plasma,platet-rich plasma and red blood cells.
Platet rich plasma layer which consists of leukocytes, cytokines, growth factors and platelets is drawn up
into a syringe and injected into scalp where thinning hair area exists.
This whole process takes around 45-50 minutes, and it has to be repeated every 4-6 months to maintain
PRP is applicable if the patient already has hair follicles. Patients with extreme hair loss or with non
existent follicles are not the best candidates for this procedure. The best option is to have a hair transplant
first, then support the process with PRP.
Since this therapy involves injection of your own blood to your own scalp, there is no risk of getting a
contagious disease. Still, the medical professional who is injecting PRP has to be careful about not
injuring blood vessels or nerves, scar tissues, and calcification at injection points.
So, the application has to be performed in a hospital environment by qualified medical professionals.
