Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) in Fort Worth, TX
Human blood consists of red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. Platelets are essential to the normal healing process. PRP is a concentrated platelet rich plasma product from one’s own blood withdrawn by a simple collection from your arm. The FDA approved kit that we use results in a high concentration of platelets in a small amount of plasma. The platelets are then delivered back into the scalp area with the use of some local anesthetic to make the process more comfortable.
How does PRP Work?
PRP contains growth factors that are released by activating the platelets which then naturally promote tissue repair and help stimulate the dormant hair follicles.
What is PRP Treatment Like?
A tube of your blood is drawn in a similar way it is taken for blood testing. The blood sample is processed in a centrifuge to produce platelet rich plasma – PRP. While waiting for the preparation of the PRP, the treatment area will be cleaned and numbing medication may also be applied to minimize any discomfort. The PRP is transferred from the tubes into small syringes. The PRP is introduced into the skin by fine needle technique similar to the way Botox is injected.
