PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Hair Loss Treatment
PRP Hair Loss Treatment is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves injecting PRP (platelet rich plasma) into the surrounding the scalp area. Plasma results from the breakdown of your blood once it has been centrifuged down to its parts. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is your blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets. Platelets contain numerous growth factors to help stimulate collagen and tissue regeneration. This also helps with improved blood circulation.
Anyone who has fine or thinning hair, androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness – hair loss at the top of the scalp and a receding hairline particularly along the temples), and women with male pattern alopecia can also benefit from the PRP Hair Loss Treatment.
Anyone who is interested in therapy as a proactive therapeutic option for patients experiencing hair loss. PRP is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions.
Blood is drawn in our office as though you are having routine blood testing at the doctor’s office. The blood is then spun in a centrifuge. The centrifuge then separates the PRP from the rest of the blood. A topical anesthetic is applied to the scalp so you are as comfortable as possible.
The patient’s hair is then washed and the micro needling takes place. The highly concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP) is then injected into the scalp.
This is a very safe procedure with virtually no side effects since you are utilizing materials from your own body.
Hair follicles survive on the nutrition they get from blood supply. If we introduce platelets by administering platelet rich plasma (PRP) in the area of damaged hair follicles, it amplifies the body’s naturally occurring wound healing response.
The procedure takes two hours depending on amount of hair loss. Patients are advised not to take any anti-inflammatory medication since it may interfere in the natural healing process of PRP. Patients generally have to receive this treatment multiple times before they can see any results. PRP does not pose any danger of allergy, hypersensitivity, or foreign-body reaction and it is a safe choice for many patients.
Prognosis is generally good, but it varies from person to person. Most of the clinics practicing this therapy have reported almost 80% success rate. PRP contains many growth factors that stimulate the hair follicle’s growth. PRP can be used preoperatively, intraoperatively, or post operatively.
