The Activator’s effectiveness comes from the combining of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), a stem cell protein matrix and microneedling. PRP is a concentration derived from your own blood through a process called centrifugation. During this process, the plasma is activated to release growth factors, and these stimulate the hair follicles when injected into the scalp. Stem cells, which are present in all of the body’s tissues, will only develop new tissue when activated. Through microneedling, which consists of puncturing the top layer of skin with fine needles, portals are opened in the skin, activating the stem cells that produce hair follicles. Microneedling also stimulates the healing process. The Activator treatments are followed with a home care regimen utilizing prescription strength products to maintain your results.
