Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) is a substance that is located in your own blood. By taking a blood sample and isolating the PRP, we are then able to reinject the plasma into the affected areas to help promote healthier cells and healing.
Dr. Vine’s office uses top-of-line Eclipse technology to separate the PRP from the rest of your blood for this procedure.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Hair Restoration in Princeton, New Jersey
Your blood is a mixture of several components, including plasma, red and white blood cells, and platelets. If you cut yourself, it’s the platelets that will cause your blood to clot and prevent further bleeding. However, that’s not the only good thing that platelets do. They are also rich with various nutrients and proteins called growth factors. Because these growth factors promote cell growth and have healing properties, they are used to treat a variety of health and cosmetic problems, including hair loss. These treatments are known as platelet-rich plasma treatments or, more simply, PRP treatments.
How We Obtain Platelet-Rich Plasma
We use your own blood to produce your own unique PRP using a simple process. First, we draw a small amount of blood from your arm. You may feel a slight pinch from the needle, but otherwise you should not feel any discomfort. Your blood then goes for a spin in a centrifuge. This rapid spinning separates the different components of the blood. The end result will be plasma with an extremely high concentration of platelets (PRP). The PRP is placed inside a syringe and is ready to be injected into the treatment area.
You Can Have Amazing Hair with PRP
PRP is available to both men and women who are dealing with hair loss. The treatment is effective and safe and lasts between thirty and sixty minutes. To reduce any discomfort, a numbing agent will first be applied to the area to be injected. The PRP will be injected with precision into the places in your scalp where hair loss is occurring. The growth factors in the PRP will provide the hair follicles with essential nutrients and stimulate them to grow. This growth will take place over several weeks, and most people will require approximately four treatments to achieve the desired results.
