This treatment is showing its efficacy increasing hair thickness, hair count and the growth phase of the hair cycle.

Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a three-step medical treatment in which we draw, process and then inject the patient’s own blood into the scalp. It is a similar treatment to the popular skin treatment ‘Microneedling with PRP’ which uses the patient’s blood to facilitate a youthful skin. PRP injections work to trigger natural hair growth and maintain it by increasing the thickness of the hair shaft and increasing blood supply to the follicle.
After your consultation with our professionals, a customized treatment plan will be tailored for your aesthetic needs. Our experienced staff will do a standard blood draw with the patient’s arm. After that, the patient’s tube blood will be placed in a centrifuge, a machine which separates the red blood cells from the plasma. The plasma, rich in platelets, will then be injected directly at the level of the hair follicles in the scalp. The treatment is done across the scalp, approximately at every inch over the desired hair areas, but usually takes less than half an hour.
After separating the plasma from the red cells, it is injected into the scalp where hair loss has occurred. The plasma helps promote cell growth, repair blood vessels, promote wound healing and cell growth, and stimulate collagen production. The high concentrations of platelets in plasma cells help promote your hair growth by prolonging the growing phase of the hair cycle.
It may sound scary (needles and blood draw), but for the most part, PRP procedure has no real risk. Most patients experience minimal to no discomfort at all. Ice packs or cool air is recommended in case of any bruising, which usually resolves within a week or two.
Minimal downtime, if any, is needed for PRP treatments.
In general, the first effects reveal a noticeable decrease in hair shedding, followed by increased length and early regrowth of the hair. Committing to the treatment plan given by our professionals, will maximize the results of growth and stop the fallout. Call MD Laser in Las Vegas today to schedule your PRP for hair loss appointment.
