Hair Restoration with Platelet-Rich Plasma

Your hair is your crowning glory and hair loss can be a scary experience that destroys your self-confidence and makes you feel insecure. 

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a method in which your own blood cells are incorporated into an injection that is applied to affected areas to promote healing, hair growth, and reduce hair fall. PRP hair restoration is proven to reverse the effects of common forms of alopecia, giving you a thicker, stronger, more luscious head of your own, naturally formed hair.

How PRP Can Restore Your Hair

PRP is widely considered as an affordable solution to hair loss problems. PRP uses our own blood platelets to heal the scalp in order  to promote hair growth. These platelets contain many beneficial growth factors. Some of which are:

  • Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor
  • Transforming Growth Factor
  • Keratinocytes Growth Factor
  • Insulin Growth Factor

PRP is a non-surgical procedure and uses your own blood for treatment. So, it is a fairly safe option as compared to other complicated and painful procedures such as transplants.

PRP has very few side effects such as redness and bruising of the affected area which usually go away in a few days. It’s a natural-looking procedure and no one will be able to tell if you are undergoing therapy or not.

A PRP treatment usually only takes 45 minutes so you don’t have to worry about taking a leave from your work. You can get it done anytime, whether it’s during your lunch break or after your work hours.

How The Treatment is Done

Most of the time, to complete a PRP therapy, 3 treatments are required with an interval of 4 to 6 weeks between each treatment. It is recommended to get a treatment every 4 to 8 months after the initial therapy to maintain the results. The treatment itself takes about 45 minutes. There are 3 steps to PRP for hair restoration.

Step 1 – The doctor will take your blood through an injection and will place it in a specialized spinning tube.

Step 2 – The spinning of the tube will separate the components of your blood which will result in 3 components being formed: Red Blood Cells, White Blood Cells, and Platelets.

Step 3 – The doctor will take the platelet concentration of your blood to create a platelet-filled injection that is then injected into the scalp to promote hair growth and reduce hair fall. The injection is usually guided by an ultrasound.
