How PRP Helps With Hair Loss

While messy creams and foams for hair loss often fail to provide noticeable results, hair transplant surgery is too invasive for many patients. Now, with PRP therapy, we have a minimally-invasive option to stimulate hair growth safely and effectively. 

Read on to learn more about our PRP hair treatment in Tampa and how it can help you regain a full, thick head of hair. 

What is PRP?

PRP is an acronym for platelet-rich plasma. This substance is derived from a patient’s blood and contains a concentration of healing platelets. These platelets have the power to stimulate tissue regeneration, making PRP a choice treatment for various soft tissue injuries. Over the years, many other uses of PRP have been discovered, including hair loss treatment. 

How Does PRP Help With Hair Loss?

The PRP hair treatment begins with a simple blood draw. A small amount of the patient’s blood is taken, then spun in a centrifuge to isolate the platelet-rich plasma. These platelets can then be injected into the thinning areas of the scalp.

The growth factors in PRP can stimulate dormant hair follicles and encourage new hair growth while thickening existing hairs. The PRP injections also boost blood flow to the hair follicles, giving them the oxygen and nutrients required for hair growth. 

Together, these effects lead to a fuller, more youthful-looking head of hair. 

Why Choose PRP For Hair Loss?

As a minimally-invasive treatment that requires no downtime or incisions, PRP is an excellent option for patients seeking safe, natural hair growth. Since PRP therapy encourages natural hair growth, you won’t have to worry about artificial-looking results.
