Platelet-rich plasma, also known as PRP or plasma treatment, is an excellent option for nourishing and strengthening thin hair in males and females. It is a relatively new procedure that is gaining a worldwide success in improving hair quality and density. Patients who complain of hair thinning or shedding and who aren’t satisfied with traditional therapies for hair restoration such as Minoxidil, vitamins and anti-androgens, or those who are simply looking for healthier and thicker hair, are very satisfied with PRP treatment.
In a typical session that takes one hour, the nurse withdraws some of the patient’s blood which is then prepared to get platelet concentration above baseline. Then Dr Maya injects the Platelet-Rich Plasma into the scalp using a very thin needle. Then the growth factors in the concentrated plasma do their job and hair growth is naturally stimulated.
