What is PRP Used For?
In the medical field, PRP injections have been around and are commonly used to treat injured tendons, ligaments, and muscles. However, in the cosmetic industry, it is more commonly used as a form of hair restoration. With PRP injections, you can enjoy thicker hair that doesn’t fall out – as well as more hair growth on your scalp.
How Does PRP Work?
When you undergo PRP treatments, there are multiple steps involved. Firstly, blood is taken from you, where it is then spun in a centrifuge. Here, your blood is split into three different parts, one of those being platelet-rich plasma. The PRP is then added to a syringe and injected into a target area on your scalp. This will usually be an area with thinning hair, or a part of your scalp where you want to encourage hair regrowth.
By injecting your scalp with PRP, it’s believed that the growth factors and stem cells in the solution will trigger natural hair growth. It can also boost collagen and keratin production, which are the two key proteins for maintaining hair strength. Therefore, the idea is that you have more hairs growing, and fewer hairs falling out. Thus, you end up with thicker, fuller, hair.
