PRP (Platelet-rich plasma) is a potential emerging, non-surgical based therapy for natural hair follicle stimulation for thinning hair.
PRP contains special cells called “platelets”, that can cause growth of the hair follicles by stimulating stem cells and other cells in the microenvironment of the hair follicle. These special platelet cells promote healing by accelerating the rate and degree of tissue healing and regeneration. The primary purpose of using PRP in hair restoration is to induce inactive or newly implanted hair follicles to get into an active growth phase .
Intracellular platelet structures -- lysosomes and alpha granules, contain clotting and growth factors that are eventually released during the healing and repair processes.
