Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a treatment that is used in many different areas of the body including in the scalp to regenerate hair. Your plasma, which is rich in platelets and growth factors, is removed from your blood and injected into the scalp at the level of the hair follicles to stimulate your follicles to promote new hair growth.
A topical anesthetic and local nerve block are used to minimize discomfort. 2-3 treatments are generally required, 4-6 weeks apart depending on the amount of hair loss for optimum results. One treatment is generally needed each year to maintain your hair growth.
Tru Essence uses laser light therapy is used in combination with PRP treatments to improve blood flow to the follicles resulting in improved hair growth. Finasteride and/or Minoxidil use after PRP treatments may be recommended to augment hair regeneration. For those suffering from a greater amount of hair loss, A-cell (stem cells) can be injected at the time of treatment to provide additional growth factors.
