Growth factors from the PRP treatments stimulate the activity of hair follicles, accelerating growth. PRP treatments enhance a variety of natural and organic hair growth factors by:

  • Stimulating hair follicles
  • Increasing blood flow to the scalp

PRP treatments address hair loss caused by aging, hormones, menopause and andropause, stress, and certain forms of alopecia. 

The procedure results in menial downtime. Thanks to the organic nature of the procedure, there are little to no side effects associated with PRP treatments. PRP hair restoration expert Reena Jogi, MD in Houston, TX, ensures that the PRP procedure is efficient and comfortable for patients.

The Science of PRP

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is made from the patient’s own blood. The concentrated platelets are collected in a blood sample and injected into the skin.

PRP is used to enhance the body’s natural growth factors and healing process. Plasma found in the blood contains natural white blood cells and platelets rich in growth factors. Delivery of the plasma to the skin creates faster and more effective hair growth. 

Blood is drawn from the patient’s arm and put into a centrifuge machine Plasma is separated from the red blood cells through advanced spinning technology. After PRP is separated, injections are made in the scalp at the level of the follicles. 

Platelet Rich Plasma has been used in clinical treatments for years. PRP has a range of medicinal benefits such as treating arthritis, signs of aging, enhancing the appearance of the skin, and reconstructive and regenerative surgeries.
