PRP Treatment for Hair Loss Vancouver stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, and it is a powerful way to aid in the healing of a wide variety of conditions and ailments.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma?
Platelets are the cells that help to heal wounds and clot blood. So when you get a cut or open wound, your platelets will rush to the site of injury to form a clot, stop bleeding and repair any damage.
What happens during a PRP Treatment?
During your PRP Treatment for Hair Loss Vancouver, your practitioner will begin by drawing blood (just like a lab test) and placing it in a centrifuge where it spins fast enough to the point of separation. The red blood cells will stay at the bottom because they are heaviest, and the white blood cells and platelets will collect on the top because they are lightest.
This process activates at least 8 essential growth factors in the blood. A growth factor is a naturally occurring vitamin or hormone capable of the stimulation of cellular growth.
After the activation, the platelet-rich plasma is injected back into the body at the desired site. For hair regrowth treatment, it is injected into the scalp.
