Blood mainly consists of a liquid called plasma, and contains red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Platelets play an important role in clotting blood, but they also contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors. Growth factors are commonly used by medical professionals to heal injuries. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is plasma that contains more platelets than what is typically found in your blood. A high concentration of platelets and growth factors can be 5-10 times richer than normal plasma.
In order to develop and prepare PRP, we will draw a small amount of your blood. Using the centrifuge at our practice, we will separate platelets from other blood cells to increase their concentration. The increased concentration of platelets is then combined with the remaining blood.
We Recommend all Hair Restoration Patients to have an blood analysis first to see weather you are a good candidate for the treatment. Finding the root to the cause of the issues is key. PRP is an investment with your time and finances. Knowing the deficiencies in your blood as to why this is happening is the first step.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR TREATMENT
When you come in for the procedure, your scalp will be given an anesthesia block to ensure that you don’t feel any pain or discomfort. A small amount of blood will be drawn, in the same way that routine blood samples are taken in a lab. We will then prepare the PRP by centrifuging your blood sample. The centrifuge machine has a rapidly rotating container that uses centrifugal force to separate the growth factors.
Patients results can be enhanced with our clinical staff’s recommendations, which can include topical serum, shampoo & Conditioning and oral prescriptions from Capilia Vitalia Supplements tailored to each individual’s specific needs. These specialized treatments set us apart by providing a customized approach to treating hair loss and restoration.
