Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Conditions

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has been used for many years to facilitate wound healing and has also played an important role in orthopedics, plastic surgery, and dentistry. It is frequently used to expedite the healing of sports injuries. In recent years, PRP has been used to treat hair loss and has come to be recognized for its ability to improve skin quality.  

PRP is a concentrate of blood, enriched in cells called platelets which have an important role in the blood clotting process. Platelets contain a number of natural growth factors. Once introduced into the skin the platelets release their growth factors which stimulate the production of collagen and enhance the blood supply to the treated area.

The Rosenthal Clinic uses the Harvest SmartPrep system since the PRP produced is of the highest quality and with the optimal concentration of platelets for tissue regeneration and stimulation of hair growth.

PRP treatments are safe, natural and usually very well tolerated.

 

PRP for Hair Loss

Both men and women suffering from thinning hair to pattern baldness may benefit from treatment with PRP.  PRP contains many growth factors that stimulate the development of new hair follicles and improve the health of existing ones. We recommend doing 3-4 treatments, one month apart, with maintenance treatments semi-annually to prolong and maintain results. The earlier these treatments are started the better the outcome in terms of slowing the hair loss and stimulation of healthy hair growth.  

Annual PRP treatments are also recommended as a maintenance treatment after hair transplantation.

PRP for skin rejuvenation

PRP has been used for facial rejuvenation throughout the world since 2006. It is especially valuable for treating fine lines around the eyes. We prefer to add PRP when treating the skin with microneedling, fractional laser or radiofrequency as it enhances the results. Similarly, PRP can effectively improve outcomes when used in combination with other treatments such as mesotherapy. It can also be combined with filler injections.
