Hair RestorationThere are many men and women worldwide who suffer from hair loss. While it may not seem like a severe problem, losing your hair is something that can have a profound effect on your confidence, as well as your life in general. So, it is no wonder that there are always new hair loss treatments that are coming onto the market. One of the most popular methods is Platelet-Rich Plasma, also known as PRP. With a high success rate, this procedure has started to be used more and more often all over the world. In fact, we are now offering it at Rock Creek Wellness.

What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) & How Does It Work?

In the simplest terms and definition, platelet-rich plasma is a product that comes from whole blood. When it comes to how PRP can help with hair growth, this process refers to using your own blood to generate growth. This is done through having tiny injections made into the affected areas of the scalp. This process is also able to be used in conjunction with other treatment methods like hair transplantation if you so desire.

When you have the procedure, first blood will be drawn from you. It will then be separated using a centrifuge. This will allow for the plasma to be removed from the red blood cells. The plasma is then extracted and from the tube and injected into the area of the patient’s scalp that is losing hair. There will be multiple injections performed every session, which each individual session lasting about an hour.
