PRP Treatment in Weirton, WV
What is Platelet Rich Plasma?
Platelet-Rich Plasma is the concentration of platelets and growth factors found in the blood. PRP involves a process where a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient’s arm during the office visit. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge which separates the red cells from the clear platelet-rich plasma. The clear PRP solution can be injected or rubbed into the patient’s skin. Since the PRP solution is isolated from the patient’s own blood, there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction and the treatment is completely free of chemicals or additives. Rich plasma (RP) can be used to enhance results of micro-needling and can be injected into the scalp for a natural treatment for hair loss.
PRP has also been shown to treat hair conditions and used successfully when other medical treatments fail or are not appropriate. PRP delivery to the scalp is performed via injections or microneedle-assisted application to promoted new hair growth, thicken thinning hair and increase the overall health if the scalp and hair.
