PRP: The Science Behind The Treatment
Platelets are the cells in the plasma of our blood that help rejuvenate our bodies, and they play a significant role when healing from an injury. Using this technique, physicians have found a way to introduce platelets to our hair follicles to make them work properly again. By inserting the platelets directly into hair follicles, they will heal the follicle and make it healthier and stronger, restoring your hair growth.
PRP treatments have been successfully used in medical fields other than cosmetic dermatology with great success. Although the treatment is till in the process of becoming FDA-cleared for hair growth stimulation, it has already been FDA-cleared for other areas such as cosmetic surgery, neurosurgery, and orthopedics.
Despite the success that PRP has had in stimulating hair growth, it may not work in some rare instances. Please review your full case history with Dr. Grafton before deciding if PRP is right for you.

PRP Hair Restoration FAQ’s
How Does PRP In Michigan Work?
Human blood contains mesenchymal stem cells and autologous blood products. PRP Therapy works by restoring growth factors found in the blood. These elements are essential to regenerating scalp tissue. Once the scalp tissue is regenerated, the hair follicles can begin hair growth. PRP therapy is known as a revolutionary way to stimulate and restore hair growth, as well as one of the safest cosmetic hair growth options on the market today.
How Is The PRP Procedure Performed?
During your visit, a small amount of your blood will be drawn. Dr. Grafton will spin the blood through a centrifuge and the PRP will be separated from the rest of the blood. Once the centrifugation process is complete, the vital growth proteins from your blood are separated and concentrated.
Next, Dr. Grafton will apply a topical analgesia and inject your scalp with the platelet-rich plasma. The PRP will stimulate the follicles so that your hair can regrow.
For the most advanced results, Dr. Robert Grafton uses his Rapid PRP Technique. This is where patients have PRP therapy performed monthly for four months. This not only ensures that the hair follicles remain stimulated but also that the hair growth is progressing as it should be.
The Science Of PRP In Michigan
PRP, or platelet rich plasma, contains platelets that are key to stimulating hair follicles, which generate hair growth. These platelets target the Dermal Papilla, which is a component of the hair follicle. The platelets also promote healing as well as the formation of new cell growth. In addition, the platelets accelerate the rate and degree of regeneration, meaning you can expect to see results in a timely manner. PRP is an ideal component of hair restoration because it is highly effective in stimulating inactive hair follicles, causing them to revert to the growth phase.
Below is a list of the specific cells within PRP that cause hair growth:
- Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF) — promotes blood vessel growth, cell replication, and skin formation.
- Transforming Growth-Factor-Beta (TGF-b) — promotes growth of matrix between cells and bone metabolism.
- Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) — promotes blood vessel formation.
- Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) — promotes cell growth and differentiation, blood vessel formation, and collagen formation.
- Fibroblast Growth Factor-2 (FGF-2) — promotes growth of specialized cells and blood vessel formation.
- Insulin-Like Growth Factor (IGF) — a regulator of normal physiology in nearly every type of cell in the body.
