PRP Q & A

What is platelet-rich plasma?

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a solution made from your own blood. The process requires a small blood draw, similar to what is needed for routine blood testing. Once that blood is drawn, it’s placed into the Eclipse PRPⓇ device, which spins it at a high rate of speed. 

That spinning action separates the solid components from the liquid plasma. The red and white blood cells are removed, and the platelets are reintroduced to the now-cleared plasma. Platelets work to enable blood clotting, and are also filled with important growth factors. Those growth factors signal your cells to regenerate, which is why PRP is a growing part of orthopedic treatment and advanced aesthetics care. 

Platelet-rich plasma can boost your natural healing abilities and help your body regenerate new tissues. Once prepared, PRP is ready to be administered via a series of shallow injections. 

How can PRP help treat hair loss?

There is a growing body of evidence that supports the use of PRP injections in treating hair loss. The process involves a series of injections across your scalp, spaced about a half-inch apart. These injections take very little time, and because they are shallow and delivered via a thin needle, there is no significant discomfort. 

Once introduced into your scalp, PRP goes to work to stimulate hair follicle activity and create new hair growth at the cellular level. Platelet-rich plasma is also known to have anti-inflammatory properties, and can improve scalp inflammation that might be contributing to your hair loss.   

Is PRP therapy for hair loss safe?

Platelet-rich plasma is a very safe treatment option, whether you’re using it to recover from a serious joint injury or as a hair restoration treatment. Because PRP is created from your own blood, your body easily accepts the treatment with no adverse reactions or risk of allergy. 

Any type of injection carries a small risk of infection or other complications. However, when you seek PRP hair loss therapy from highly skilled professionals like the team at Hush L.A. Medspa, the risk of complications is low. All treatments are administered using the highest medical standards, and with an eye toward supporting and maintaining your overall health. 

Be cautious about seeking any form of PRP therapy from spas or salons that are not under medical supervision. This is an advanced treatment that requires considerable technological support and skill to properly administer.
