PRP stands for platelet-rich-plasma. Platelets are rich in growth factors and are essential in the facilitation of the body’s natural healing process. PRP is harvested from the patient’s blood and used in combination with microneedling and/or injections to improve the tone and texture of the skin as well as promoting hair regrowth.
Such a wonderful experience at Perfect Skin Dermatology today! Dr. Schroeder was very personable and knowledgeable. She thoroughly explained procedures and pricing. It was an entirely pain free experience. Highly recommend!!!Angelina L.

PRP Treatment for hair growth
Platelet-rich plasma harnesses the body’s natural healing mechanisms and growth factors to promote hair regrowth. The procedure involves drawing a tube of your own blood. The tube is then placed into a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the remaining blood contents. The PRP is injected into the scalp area to stimulate hair growth for both men and women.
For PRP hair growth to be successful, patients will need to come into the office several times for treatments. Most patients will need between 4 and 6 sessions scheduled about a month apart for the best results. After that, maintenance sessions can be scheduled about twice per year to continually improve hair growth.
