Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
Platelet Rich Plasma, also known as PRP, is an all-natural innovative hair loss treatment for both men and women. PRP is concentrated blood plasma and contains 3 to 5 times the number of platelets that are typically found in circulating blood.
This three-step process includes partial extraction of platelets from your blood to its growth factors, processing it and injecting platelet-rich plasma into areas of the scalp that are bald or thinning.
PRP promotes hair growth and improves the health of hair follicles. Minimally invasive with no stitching, you will be able to return to your normal routine the next day.
As a hair loss treatment, PRP can help in two ways:
- Revive Hair Follicles – It is a completely natural way to promote hair growth for follicles that went dormant due to pathological conditions.
- Vascular Endothelial Cells – PRP helps the regrowth of vascular endothelial cells, which enhances healthy vascularization of the tissue within the skin and around the follicular units.
PRP is one of the newest forms of hair loss treatment, so there are limitations to scientific studies. Newport Hair Clinic follows all patients who receive PRP to help determine the effectiveness and identify rather or not other therapeutic modalities are needed.

Blood Drawn – First, the patient will have blood drawn from their arm. The vial of blood is then placed into a spinner for processing.
Processing – It will remain in the spinner for about 10 minutes. This will separate the different layers of blood: platelet-poor plasma, platelet-rich plasma, and red blood cells.
