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).

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.
