PRP FOR HAIR RESTORATION
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for hair restoration involves a simple injection of your own platelets into the vascular layer of your scalp.
PRP for hair regrowth
- Increases blood supply to the follicle.
- Increases shaft size (thickness).
- Triggers and maintains the growth phase.
- Controls hair’s grow cycle.
- Decreases hair loss.
How PRP works
Platelets contain hair growth factors. Those growth factors are like signal callers that give instructions to your tissue to regenerate and multiply. This has led different fields of medicine to utilize PRP for wound healing to speed up recovery time and regrow healthier, stronger tissue.
Now doctors have discovered new benefits for hair thickness and regrowth. With PRP for hair, your growth factors and stem cells work together to reverse the miniaturization of the hair follicle and jump-starting dormant hair back into the growth stage.
What is the process?
This quick injection involves using your body’s own platelets in a very easy three-step process.
A special collection tube is used to draw your blood and is placed into a centrifuge.
The concentrated platelets are drawn up in the syringe.
Using a small needle, the platelets are then injected strategically into your scalp in the areas that need improvement.

What is FOTONA hair restoration treatment?
The Fotona Laser is an incredible system that offers a range of treatment modes that are minimally invasive and require no downtime afterwards. This dynamic system utilizes laser energy for safe, predictable, and natural hair restoration results. It is clinically proven to restore natural hair growth in just a few short treatments. By combining Nd: YAG and Er: YAG wavelengths, this advanced technology is effective at reaching the deepest layers of the scalp and hair follicles to activate the natural healing process. Results offer restored hair growth for natural, yet noticeable results.
How does FOTONA hair restoration work?
During treatment, the innovative laser handpiece is held to the targeted treatment area. The system then works to deliver combination energy deep beneath the surface of the scalp to the targeted hair follicles. These specialized wavelengths are delivered with unmatched speed and safety while causing minimal-to-no discomfort. As a result, a cellular response is activated within the underlying layers of the scalp.
The natural production of collagen is activated, which is effective at replenishing damaged tissue. The regeneration of healthy tissue is also encouraged which effectively repairs and restores damaged hair follicles. Following treatment, the scalp is replenished with essential nutrients and hydration for reclaiming natural hair growth.
Who is a candidate?
Both men and women who are struggling with thinning hair or hair loss would benefit from treatments. If you are searching for a non-invasive and quick solution for reclaiming a fuller head of hair, you could also benefit from these hair restoration treatments.
