PRP Hair Regrowth
PRP Hair Regrowth is an all-natural, non-surgical technique for men and women.
- Regain hair growth
- Obtain thicker, stronger hair
- Enhance your appearance
The PRP Hair Regrowth technique works through the use of platelet rich plasma (PRP). This procedure uses your own blood to stimulate your cells to regenerate. The serum is activated with calcium chloride. This mixture contains growth factors used to stimulate uni-potent (native) stem cells, fibroblasts, collagen, and blood vessels. Activated PRP causes tissue repair and has an anti-aging effect. PRP has been used successfully and safely for many years to treat joint injuries in orthopedics and to speed recovery in oral surgery. In the field of plastic surgery, it has been used in healing wounds in burn patients and diabetics who are often prone to non healing sores and wounds.
During the PRP Hair Regrowth procedure, the Eclipse Micropen is used and the PRP is massaged and/or injected into the skin.

Some growth should be seen in about 8 weeks and results can last up to two years, but vary with each individual.

How Does the PRP Hair Regrowth Procedure Work?
Blood is drawn from the arm in the same way as with any blood test. Then, using a centrifuge and a special method, platelet rich plasma is isolated the resultant growth factors. A numbing cream is applied liberally to the scalp. Using a very thin needle, the growth factors are injected into the scalp. Once injected, the platelets immediately activate the body’s localized stem cells and begin rejuvenating and revitalizing the scalp to produce growth. The procedure is very tolerable with minimal discomfort and little to no downtime.
