The Science of PRP
PRP contains special cells called Platelets, that can theoretically cause growth of the hair follicles by stimulating the stem cells and other cells in the microenvironment for the hair follicle. There special Platelet cells promote healing, accelerate the rate and degree of tissue healing and regeneration, respond to injury, and formation of new cellular growth. The primary purpose of using PRP in hair restoration is to stimulate inactive or newly implanted hair follicles into an active growth phase. 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.
PRP specific cells that cause hair growth include:
- Platelet Derived Growth Factor (PDGF) – promotes blood vessel growth, cell replication, skin formation;
- Transforming Growth-Factor-Beta (TGF-b) – promotes growth of matrix between cells, bone metabolism;
- Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) – promotes blood vessel formation;
- Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) – Promotes cell growth and differentiation, blood vessel formation, collagen formation;
- Fibroblast Growth Factor-2 (FGF-2) – promotes growth of specialized cells and blood vessel formation, and,
- Insulin Like Growth Factor (IGF) – a regulator of normal physiology in nearly every type of cell in the body
