Hair Loss Treatment. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) procedure for Hair Restoration. Warwickshire. How does Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy work? PRP treatment involves harvesting platelets from our own blood in order to use them to treat skin problems and hair loss, giving it the nicknames Vampire Facial. A small amount of blood is taken and put into a centrifuge, where the blood cells are separated The platelet-rich plasma is the component of the blood that is known for being highly effective in treating our skin among many other things. The platelet-rich plasma once injected sends out signals to other cells in the body, telling them to migrate to the injection site. One of these cells is known as a fibroblast, which creates collagen. Collagen is what gives our skin its youthful appearance. As we go through the ageing process, collagen becomes reduced, causing reductions in elasticity, which is responsible for skin wrinkles and fine lines. PRP therapy is an anti ageing treatment used to stimulate collagen production can counteract this. Adipocyte cells are also stimulated, which convert into fat cells, which are important in the face for contouring the face.
