PRP Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy for Hair Loss
IHRS is proud to introduce PRP Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy for Hair Loss. This revolutionary procedure is changing the hair restoration industry and we can now offer it locally, in Jacksonville.

You can stimulate hair growth and reverse thinning hair by using your own hair stem cells, in your frontal hairline, crown area, and entire top of your head.
What is PRP Hair Loss Treatment Therapy?
PRP, which stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, is a new process in which a clients’ own blood cells are used to improve and regrow hair. A client’s blood is drawn, then placed in a centrifuge to separate the blood from the plasma, which is rich in platelets containing growth factors. The platelet rich plasma is then injected directly into the patient’s scalp.
How does Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Work?
Once the PRP is injected into the client’s scalp, powerful enzymes are released that promote the healing of tissue and hair follicles. This is a technology similar to what scientists have been using for years when conducting stem cell research. The growth factors in PRP can stimulate and encourage the regrowth of your hair and even thicken your existing hair follicles.
The Science of PRP
PRP contains special cells called Platelets. These platelets can cause growth of the hair follicles by theoretically stimulating the stem cells that are located in the Dermal Papilla as well as other structures of the hair follicles. It is these special platelet cells that promote healing, accelerates the rate and the degree of tissue healing and regeneration, response of the body to injury, and formation of new cellular growth.
Inside the Platelets are many intracellular structures such as glycogen, lysosomes and alpha granules. These granules within the PRP contain clotting and growth factors that are eventually released during the healing and repair process.
Is PRP Therapy for Me?
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy offers a promising alternative for natural hair growth for those patients who are not candidates for surgery. It also is a beneficial therapy for surgical patients who want PRP therapy as a complimentary procedure at the same time hair restoration surgery with either automated FUE or the STRIP procedure.
