WHAT ARE PLATELETS?
Platelets are tiny cells that circulate within our body and bind together when they recognize damaged blood vessels. Platelets are made in your bone marrow along with your white and red blood cells.
WHAT IS PLATELET-RICH PLASMA?
Your blood is made up of four main components: red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. Platelet Rich Plasma is a platelet concentrated
component from your own blood that contains nutrient rich cells and protein growth factors.
WHAT IS PLASMA?
Plasma is the largest component of your blood, making up about 55 percent of its overall content. The primary purpose of plasma is to transport nutrients, hormones, and proteins to the parts of the body that need it.
IS PLATELET-RICH PLASMA SAFE?
Platelet Rich Plasma is safe because it comes from your own blood, therefore there is minimal risk for allergic or immune reaction. Platelet Rich Plasma preparation must be conducted by a trained medical professional. Consult your physician for more information.
HOW IS PLATELET-RICH PLASMA PREPARED?
Platelet Rich Plasma is produced when a small amount of blood is drawn and placed into a sterile, disposable container and then, spun to separate the platelets from your blood sample, resulting in a platelet-rich plasma.
"It has been amazing, my hairdresser noticed that my hair loss was getting worse and bald spot on my crown had gotten larger. I contacted Dr. Kumar and I had 3 treatments of PRP one month apart along with the prescription topical that he had compounded custom for me and I really have noticed a difference, as has my hairdresser!
“Dr. Kumar is very down to Earth and in addition to being a hair expert he is also a hospitalist! I was able to get counseled on my hair loss as well as getting a better understanding of a recent unrelated diagnosis that I had received. He explained both in plain English!”
