I have recently begun to experiment using PRP, which is platelet rich plasma, in certain hair transplant procedures. PRP has been used in wound healing for a number of years. Recently some have begun to use it in conjunction with Hair Transplant procedures. The PRP is obtained from the patient prior to the procedure via a blood draw. The blood is then spun down to separate the red blood cells from the PRP. The PRP contains growth factors that aid in healing. We have been experimenting injecting the PRP into the donor region, bathing the grafts to be transplanted in the PRP, and then spraying the PRP onto the scalp for better post operative healing. So far the initial results have been promising. I still cannot definitively state that I see a superior result using the PRP compared with procedures performed without it, but I will continue to investigate and look forward to having more information moving forward. I also plan to offer it to my patients who are interested, though letting them know that we are still in the experimental phase. I look forward to discussing this further in the future.
