Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for hair is a non-surgical medical hair restoration treatment gaining popularity. This procedure involves injecting PRP, a concentrated solution of growth factors and proteins derived from the patient's own blood platelets, into the scalp to stimulate hair growth.
The process begins by drawing a small amount of the patient's blood, typically from the arm. This blood sample is then processed in a centrifuge to extract the PRP. Once prepared, the PRP is carefully injected into the scalp using a fine needle. The idea behind PRP for hair is that it triggers hair follicles, encouraging them to grow.
