So how does PRP Injection for hair loss work?
Hair loss is due to the loss of hair follicles in the scalp. The remaining hair follicles are still present and able to grow new hair. Your PRP is rich with your natural growth factors and other proteins that can stimulate hair growth and repair of cell damage. The PRP injection for hair loss is believed to stimulate your remaining hair follicles to enter a growth phase.
How is the PRP for hair loss placed in the scalp?
A topical anesthetic cream is placed on the scalp to give numbness. There are two main ways to introduce the PRP into the scalp. Micro-needling uses very small needles to make small perforations in the skin. This allows tiny pores to be made that allow the PRP to be placed on the surface and travel down towards the hair follicles. The other method is to use small needles to perform a series of small injections in the scalp. These two methods can be combined for best results.
