Hair loss has now become a very common problem today. It is important to take corrective measures at early stage to prevent progression of baldness. PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is one such non-surgical medical therapy for hair related problems like receding hair line, female pattern baldness, diffuse hair fall, telogen effluvium and alopecia areata.
PRP solution when injected into scalp near hair roots releases growth factors which enhance the hair growth and improve the scalp blood circulation.
Benefits of PRP-
It’s a three step process -
Step 1:Patient’s own blood sample is taken from arm vein near elbow.
Step 2:Blood sample is placed in centrifuge machine and PRP prepared by Double spin technique.
Step 3:This prepared PRP solution is injected into the scalp near the hair roots which has been numbed by Topical Anaesthetic cream.
The growth factors are thus released near the hair roots from the platelets. This stimulates hair growth naturally, and also works by increasing the blood supply to the hair follicles.
It is mildly painful treatment but ensures wonderful results. Total procedure time is around 90 minutes.
Doctor may recommend not using PRP for hair loss if you have been diagnosed with -low platelet count, significant systemic illness or infection of scalp.
