PRP Hair Restoration
Dr. Stefanie A. Schultis in Covington, LA
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a safe, effective treatment for men and women with thinning hair. The PRP growth factors may stimulate follicles and promote new hair growth over time. It involves injections of your own platelets, a vitamin mixture and ACell micromatrix into the vascular layer of your scalp.
PRP is extracted from your own blood, therefore, it alleviates the risk of allergic reaction, rejection or skin sensitivity. Injections are prepared using a few tubes of the patient’s own blood, which after being centrifuged are injected into the treated areas, releasing growth factors that increase the proliferation of reparative cells.
