Regenerate Hair Growth Using Plasma Therapy
Oct 08, 2013 05:08PM
The Lehigh Valley Institute of Regenerative Medicine, in Easton, is now offering Pure Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, a new, all-natural procedure used to regenerate hair growth. New research shows that introducing a concentration of growth factors and white blood cells stimulates the growth of hair follicles. This reverses the hair miniaturization commonly seen in androgenetic alopecia (pattern baldness).
The growth factors in Pure PRP concentrate stimulate new blood vessels to grow for the hair follicles, which promotes the production of hair follicles and even thickens the hair shafts. Because Pure PRP is produced from the patient’s own blood, there is no risk of an allergic reaction and infection is extremely rare.
After a hair analysis, a small amount of blood is taken from the patient, the scalp is cleaned and numbed with a local anesthetic and calcium-activated Pure PRP is injected and applied topically. A derma-roller creates microscopic channels that allow the Pure PRP to penetrate deep into the scalp.
