What is PRP?

PRP Stands for “Platelet Rich Plasma”. Platelet Rich Plasma is created by taking whole blood from the human body and separating the platelets out, creating a concentrated plasma. Platelets are part of the blood that is responsible for healing wounds, by allowing blood to clot. Once a clot is formed, growth factors in the platelets stimulate the wound area to heal. PRP treatment is used widely in the medical field to stimulate and speed up the healing process.

Benefits of PRP Treatment

Hair Loss/Thinning hair and PRP: In the case of thinner hair, research is showing that when injected into the scalp, PRP stimulates hair follicles to heal themselves, producing thicker hair, and in many cases improving hair counts. At our Capilia centers, results have been nothing short of astounding. Is it possible that a cure for hair loss is finally here?

*Individual results may vary

Effective for Men & Women of all Ages: As with all treatments, results are generally more effective the earlier you begin treatment. This is because there is less damage to the hair follicle to repair. However, PRP has shown to be effective in both men and woman of various ages and hair loss levels.
