The logic is simple: blood is drawn and then re-injected into a target area after its plasma has been separated. However there are some important steps to this procedure no matter how simple it may look upon first glance. Firstly you need to consult your doctor on whether PRP is the best method for your hair treatment journey. Then your doctor will run some tests to determine whether your blood is viable for regenerating the plasma. After you clear these steps the actual PRP Procedure may begin.

PRP hair treatment is completed in 3 main stages:

 

1. A small portion of blood is drawn: This is usually one to two tubes or approximately 2 ounces depending on the target area.

 

2. Blood is placed into a centrifuge and platelet-rich plasma is obtained via separation of red blood cells: This part is done in a sterile lab environment and usually takes about 30 minutes.

 

3. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is injected into your scalp with a syringe: This area is determined in the consultation before the blood is even drawn out so the platelet plasma rich syringe is injected into the target area without further ado. Et voila! The procedure is done and the patient may leave with no post-op particulars. The patient may be advised not to shower for the day of the procedure. The doctor will make sure to tell the patient how to take care of their hair after the procedure.
