Our blood is made of two main components – red blood cells and plasma. he says. The plasma contains white blood cells and platelets, which are rich in growth factors.

They can also help stimulate the activity of the hair follicles and promote new hair growth.
PRP is gaining popularity by achieving such medical successes as tissue regeneration, wound healing, scar revision, skin rejuvenating and also alopecia and hair loss.
It is a meticulous process, beginning with a standard blood draw from the patient’s arm. A centrifuge then spins the blood tube to separate out the red blood cells from the plasma.
The plasma is then injected directly into the scalp at the level of the hair follicles. Injecting PRP into the scalp stimulates the stem cells in the hair root to rejuvenate hair follicles that may have otherwise stopped producing new hair.
The result is the growth of baby hairs, strengthening of the existing hairs and thickening them.
The injections begin across the scalp, approximately at every half inch over the area of thinning hair — but typically, the entire procedure takes less than a half hour.
