What is PRP?
PRP (also known as Platelet Rich Plasma) is an revolutionary non-surgical treatment for hair restoration because it will use your body’s own healing power to help with tissue healing and collagen regrowth.
PRP is a concentrated autologous biologically active blood product that is enriched in a range of growth factors, cytokines, and other plasma proteins. Platelets are blood particles without nucleus from the fragmentation of megacaryocytes. They live approximately 10 days. They contain alpha granules which contain growth factors. More than 60 growth factors have been identified (Mazzucco, BL, Transfusion). The degranulation and activation begins 10 minutes after activation and most are secreted in the first hour.
Extremely high concentrations of biologically active agents modulate pathways of tissue repair and inflammation in the scalp (Lynch and Bashir).

"I love this place! I haven’t been here since Covid hit over 13 months ago and they were just as friendly as ever! Tori knows her stuff and I’ve always trusted their advice and knowledge of procedures."- J.Z. / Yelp / Apr 14, 2021
"These are my GIRLS!!! I could not say enough good things about Elevate. The experience is wonderful from the second you step foot in the lobby - they have a very serene and beautifully decorated waiting room with calming music. The women at the front desk are outstanding - so positive and welcoming every time. Tori is a wizard, I have been seeing her for Botox and microneedling. She has also been an amazing and honest consultant for other treatments I'm interested in. She won't hesitate to tell me when I don't need something, which is so refreshing when it comes to getting cosmetic treatments in Dallas. The culture is usually the opposite and geared towards getting you to spend more money. You'll never feel this kind of pressure at Elevate, they take a conservative approach and genuinely care about the results. I'll never go anywhere else."- S.G. / Google / Mar 03, 2021
"Normally I would be afraid to utilize a service like this as a man, but in this instance my experience was nothing but the best. I didn’t feel like I was a person going through a factory to get basic services but rather someone but the nurse practitioner took time and gave great suggestions of short, mood, and long-term improvements I could go to my health. Tori did a great job and I highly recommend this experience."- M.A. / Yelp / Dec 29, 2020
Patient Indication for PRP Treatment:
Primary: Androgenic Alopecia (Lower Ludwig and Hamilton are preferred, avoid highest)
Secondary: Alopecia Areata
Under Study: Traction Alopecia
Peripheral blood is collected using a 19 or 21 gauge butterfly needle into specialized 22 ml vacuum tubes that contain a thixotropic gel separator and centrifuged at 1500 g for 10 minutes. This will produce approximately 10 ml of PRP that will be further concentrated by removing almost 5 mls of platelet poor plasma component leaving 5 ml of Platelet Rich Plasma.
