Understanding PRP

Over the last few years, cell therapy in the form of stem cells, cell multiplication, and natural growth factors have been significant areas of research and development in different medicine streams. Hair restoration has emerged as one of the important areas where researchers have noted very promising outcomes with the application of cell therapy. In the case of PRP hair restoration therapy, the med spa treatment expert will make use of the patient’s own blood. The precise quantity of blood will collected and passed through a centrifugal process. This process will separate the PRP, which contains vital hair growth factors. This natural component will be employed actively in the form of injections to treat hair loss. As an injectable procedure, PRP therapy may be performed individually or in combination with hair transplant surgery. Rejuvenate Medical Spa provides this treatment to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, CA, and nearby areas.


When performed as a stand alone injectable procedure, PRP therapy will begin once the PRP has been separated and preserved for treatment. The centrifuged PRP will be injected directly into the targeted recipient areas of the scalp to induce the re-growth and thickening of hair follicles. The treatment may also be applied to the crown region, which usually has a low tendency of hair re-growth. The entire PRP injection therapy procedure may be completed in about 60 to 90 minutes. The major part of the time will be spent in drawing and processing the blood that will used for the injectable treatment. Once the treatment is administered, the hair restoration expert will generally call the patient for a review at the end of second week and sixth week to evaluate the results.


PRP is naturally rich with platelets and growth factors that are believed to be among the most potent mediators of healing and growth in the human body. The hair restoration expert will customize the PRP injection therapy in accordance with the hair loss pattern and other factors that are specific to a patient. Patients suffering from progressive hair loss can expect positive outcomes with PRP therapy. A majority of patients will show encouraging response in terms of slowing down or even complete stoppage of the progressive hair loss.
