PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a new method to treat hair loss (androgenic alopecia) and PRP is now available at Dermatology Boutique!
Some patients experience a reduction in hair loss after several PRP treatments, and also an improvement in the volume and coverage of hair on treated areas of the scalp.
PRP is an injectable made from your blood! PRP speeds healing and has been used for years to help athletes recover from injuries and to repair tendons and joints. A small amount of your blood is drawn and then with a centrifuge, the platelet rich plasma is extracted. After the injections of the PRP into your scalp, you may experience some redness, a little swelling or even bruising for a few days.
