Having thick, full hair is a sign of youth and vitality. When hair begins to thin, women may wonder what’s wrong and how they can revive their locks. At Ethos Integrative Medicine in Scottsdale, Arizona, we offer a revolutionary approach to hair loss in platelet-rich plasma therapy.
Your blood is made up of red and white blood cells, plasma, and platelets. Platelets are known for their ability to clot, but they’re also a compound of your blood that contains a large number of healing and growth factors. When a sample of your blood is spun down in a centrifuge, the platelets are concentrated into a compound known as platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
The doctors at Ethos Integrative Medicine then inject the PRP into strategic areas of your scalp to help stop hair loss and promote regeneration of hair from the follicles. The growth factors send messages to the follicles to wake up and start functioning.
