Optimizing Healing with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy utilizes concentrated platelets from your blood, rich in growth factors, to promote healing and rejuvenation.  It’s also effective for hair rejuvenation, stimulating follicles and reducing scalp inflammation. At TIFAAR, we follow a protocol from the Cleveland Clinic, administering PRP with small needles after numbing.

Typically, one treatment per month for four months, followed by maintenance treatments every 3-6 months, yields significant results, with over 80% of patients experiencing increased hair thickness and decreased shedding after at least three sessions.

Platelet-Rich Plasma: What are PRP's?

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a regenerative treatment that harnesses the healing properties of platelets found in a patient’s own blood. During the PRP procedure, a small sample of the patient’s blood is drawn and then centrifuged to separate the platelets from other blood components. The resulting PRP solution is rich in growth factors and cytokines, which play key roles in tissue repair, regeneration, and inflammation reduction. PRP therapy can be used across various medical specialties, including orthopedics, dermatology, and aesthetics, to promote healing, reduce pain, and improve overall tissue health.
