What is PRP Hair Restoration at Troy Laser Center?
PRP Hair Restoration is a non-invasive, non-surgical alternative to a hair transplant. It involves injecting the patient’s own blood into the hair loss areas of the scalp in order to stimulate new hair follicles and thus new hair growth.
The treatment utilizes patient’s own blood due to the high levels of PRP (platelet rich plasma)- the plasma consists of numerous growth factors which are responsible for tissue regeneration, inducing a healing response, and the stimulation of new hair follicles and new hair growth. Blood is drawn out of the patient’s arm and then spun in a centrifuge to separate the actual PRP from the red blood cells. The secret to optimal hair stimulation is the highest and purest concentration of PRP or platelets; for that reason, Troy Laser Center utilizes the state-of-art EmCyte PurePRP SupraPhysiologic centrifuge system delivering up to 95% platelet yield and up to 9 times highest concentration of pure platelets.

The numerous growth factors within the PRP speed up tissue repair and new growth, to include prolonged anagen (growing) phase of the hair cycle and increased hair diameter.
During the initial complimentary cosmetic consultation, our cosmetic physician evaluates the patient's scalp and hair loss volume as well as patient's expectations and desires. Based on the outcome, if the patient is a good candidate for PRP Hair Restoration, recommendations are made as to the quantity and frequency of the treatments.
By injecting the pure PRP into the hair loss or thinning areas of the scalp, the stem cells in the hair are awaken, the hair follicles are stimulated resulting in new and thicker hair growth. The secret is the highest and purest concentration of the PRP- a process which is achieved at Troy Laser Center by utilizing the state-of-art EmCyte Pure PRP for up to 95% platelet yield and up to 9 times higher concentration free of any red blood cells.
