Platelet Rich Plasma (RPR) Therapy
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is another treatment option at La Mesa Medical Hair Restoration. Like stem cell therapy this treatment is non-surgical, non-invasive, and has no down time.
PRP therapy involves drawing the patient’s blood and using a centrifuge to isolate the platelets and their associated cytokines and growth factors (the PRP).
The platelet rich plasma is then injected into the thinning areas of the patient’s scalp, which promotes healing and hair growth. While this method of treating hair loss gained more attention in recent years, Dr. Ross was conducting studies on the benefits of platelet rich plasma for hair loss as far back as 2007.
