PRP is most commonly known for its benefits as a skin rejuvenation technique to promote new skin growth and help your skin heal from any blemishes and scarring. But what many people don’t know is that PRP can be used to help promote hair growth in areas that are thinning or losing hair.
The specialist performing the procedure will first draw a blood sample from the patient. The blood will then be placed into a centrifuge that will rapidly spin the sample and separate the blood from the platelets. During the process, the platelet count will be boosted to deliver the healing platelet-rich plasma.
The extracted platelet concentration will then be injected into the patient’s scalp. The growth factors from the platelets will trigger natural hair growth, as well as improvement in hair volume. It is believed that platelets increase the blood supply delivered to the hair follicles, restore the normal hair cycle, and increase hair counts. Furthermore, PRP injections can contribute to increased hair thickness and overall hair volume.

If you’ve ever had a PRP microneedling procedure — also known as a vampire facial — then the process for hair loss is very similar. Blood is drawn, this time from your arm, and put into a centrifuge that separates out your Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP).
This PRP is what is injected back into you, promoting hair growth. Using a needle, PRP is inserted across your scalp, about every half inch, to cover the area that is thinning. The needle targets those specific hair follicles that are not growing hair.
