At Elite Healthcare Physical Medicine in Mount Pleasant, SC, we perform PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) therapy as a proactive therapeutic option for male and female patients experiencing hair loss. PRP is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions.
Understanding Platelet-Rich Plasma
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) contains specialized cells called Platelets, that can cause the growth of the hair follicles by stimulating the stem cells and other cells in the microenvironment of the hair follicle.
These particular Platelet cells promote healing, accelerate the rate and degree of tissue healing and regeneration, respond to injury, and formation of new cellular growth. The primary purpose of using PRP in hair restoration is to stimulate inactive or newly implanted hair follicles into an active growth phase.
21st Century Healthcare Technology Safety
PRP has been used successfully in other medical and surgical disciplines for over twenty years. The decision to use PRP is a personal decision and should be made after careful research, consideration, and an informative consultation with the provider.
PRP is safe and natural because the procedure concentrates the good cells from your scalp and injects them directly back into the area where it is needed. There is no chance of getting a blood infection from another human being. PRP involves using your cells that are not modified or changed, and it will not be rejected by your immune system.
