The therapy works by concentrating the platelets which increases the release of growth factors. To this end, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient, which is then spun down in a centrifuge and prepared by isolating the platelet rich plasma component. The plasma component is then mixed with a small amount of calcium to activate the platelets. This solution is then injected, with a small and thin needle, just under the skin, into the scalp, focusing on the areas experiencing hair thinning or loss. A numbing cream is used to reduce any discomfort that maybe felt during the therapy. PRP has been used successfully in other medical, surgical and aesthetic procedures over many years and as there are no chemicals involved at all, is completely natural and beneficial. The Revive Med Spa PRP therapy is an approved therapy, an autologous treatment, which means that it is only your own blood cells that are put back into your scalp. It is perfect for both men and women and is ideal at the first sign of hair loss or thinning. It can also be used for eyebrows. Ideally, depending on the condition of your hair, you will require about three treatments at four to six week intervals. Once the results are positive, you can maintain the result with annual maintenance treatments. Treatments and top-up treatments will be based upon your individual hair results.
