What Is PRP for Hair Loss Treatment?
When platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is used with the Eclipse MicroPen™, a renewed blood supply and proper nutrient absorption can be stimulated in deprived hair follicles to help support stronger and healthier hair growth. This renewed growth can then help fill in areas of thinning or receding hair. PRP for hairline hair loss and hair loss at the crown can both be performed with the Eclipse MicroPen™.

How Does PRP Hair Restoration Work?
The PRP hair restoration procedure is fairly straightforward and doesn’t take too long to complete. Before the procedure can get underway, your provider will first draw some blood and place it in a special centrifuge where it is spun for around 10 to 15 minutes. This causes the blood to separate into three distinct parts: platelet-rich plasma (PRP), platelet-poor plasma, and red blood cells. The PRP is what’s required for the procedure, and the rest is discarded. The doctor will then apply a topical anesthetic to your scalp and the procedure will begin.
The highly concentrated PRP is injected into the areas of the patient’s scalp that require treatment, and while there may be some mild pain or discomfort while the PRP is being injected, overall, it’s a very safe procedure with virtually no side effects. Once the procedure has been completed, you can return to your normal activities.

In addition, it should be noted that any patients who have completely lost hair follicles won’t quite be able to get the help they need from PRP hair loss treatment and may instead wish to opt for a hair transplant.

Does PRP stop hair loss?
While we have seen PRP help re-grow new hair it is very important to understand why you are having the hair loss in the first place.
