So, what is PRP at Dermatology Specialists of Illinois?

PRP stands for “Platelet Rich Plasma.” Platelets are cells in the blood that are needed for proper clotting. When combined with liquid plasma, platelets are rich in factors that support the multiplication of cells as well as healing. Not only are platelets and liquid plasma a powerful combo, but they are also a proven therapy. Physicians have used PRP treatments for more than two decades. In the dermatological world, patients have (safely) experienced dramatic improvements in the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and laxity with PRP.

PRP is considered to be so safe for the treatment of a wide range of dermatological conditions, including hormonal baldness because the platelet-rich plasma is derived from each patient’s blood. As an autologous procedure, the risks of allergies and other adverse reactions are minimized. Additionally, PRP accelerates therapeutic healing and generally accomplishes this with minimal side effects.

After blood is drawn, this small sample is placed in a machine called a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins the sample. So, the components in the blood are separated. In this manner, heavily-concentrated, platelet-rich cells are isolated. Drs Khanna and his team use their expertise to precisely apply the PRP to your scalp using multiple tiny injections. When skillfully administered, PRP renews hair growth by releasing substances known as “growth factors.” These growth factors recruit the cells that are necessary to repair tissues and restore volume (and glory) to your crown.

What can PRP do for you?

As with all procedures at Dermatology Specialists of Illinois, treatment starts with a thorough evaluation and consultation by our dermatologists. There is no single “silver bullet” procedure that effectively treats every condition. So, PRP may not be a suitable answer to the question of how to treat your thinning hair. Drs Khanna and his expert team look forward to exploring your options.

Should you be among those patients who are great candidates for PRP therapy, it is important to follow any pre-treatment instructions as advised by our specialists. For instance, some medications can interfere with the platelets’ ability to activate healing by inhibiting the clotting process. Afterward, Dr Khanna can discuss other precautions to take to assure successful and speedy treatment, such as avoiding sun exposure and dramatic temperature fluctuations in the days following PRP therapy.
