Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is an exciting new technology that encourages hair growth and stimulation. It is a natural solution that utilises your own platelets for treatment, hence, no side effects at all!
We have been performing PRP therapy as a proactive therapeutic option for male and female patients experiencing hair loss.
What is PRP?
Platelet rich plasma is concentrated blood plasma which contains 3-5 times the number of platelets found in normal circulatory blood. It contains various growth factors and bioactive proteins that aid in hair growth in male and female hair loss.
How does PRP work?
The plasma contain growth factors which have significant positive effects on hair growth. The platelet growth factors:
• activates hair stem cells leading to hair production
• gives strength to the existing hair,
• reverses hair miniaturization,
• reduces hair loss
• increase the actual number and quality of hairs
How is PRP done?
After collecting the patients blood and processing it, the platelet rich liquid component is filled in syringes and re-introduced into the treatment site. 4-6 such treatments done 3 weeks apart.
Which cases is PRP effective?
PRP works for patients with diffuse hair thinning caused by any cause including Androgenetic alopecia, Telogen effluvium etc. It also found to be effective in alopecia areata. It is not that effective in patients with complete baldness and scarring alopecia. PRP can be used in conjunction with minoxidil, finasteride & hair transplant.
When is improvement noticeable?
Generally the hair shafts become thicker and appear more lustrous with reduction in hair shedding within 4-6 weeks, while new growth can be observed from around 4 months.
PRP is safe and natural because the procedure concentrates the good cells from your own body directly back into the area where it is needed. There is absolutely no chance of getting an infection from another human being. The injections prove their benefits quite remarkably within a month of the injection being given.
PRP is a potential emerging non-surgical based therapy for natural hair follicle stimulation for thinning hair. Larger clinical studies are pending but the current medical literature contains numerous optimistic results. Although a few controlled studies exist, anecdotal and case reports are the primary sources reflecting success with PRP therapy.
What are the indications?
Patients with history of heavy smoking, drug and alcohol use and systemic disorders.
Are there any other uses of PRP?
Besides hair growth, PRP therapy has proven to be beneficial in skin complaints, dull skin, acne scars, aging issues, etc. It is popularly called as ‘Vampire facelift’ or ‘Liquid facelift’ and is currently a rage amongst celebrities worldwide.
In summary, PRP therapy offers the opportunity for hair growth for those patients with hair loss who are not candidates for surgery or those patients wanting a more aggressive nonsurgical approach to treatment.
