PRP injection (Platelet Rich Plasma) for Hair Growth

Date :16-Dec-2020

Hair loss is one of the most common problems across all genders today and there are seemingly hundreds of different remedies for hair loss available now. Among all the treatments, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatment is gaining popularity due to its effectiveness with minimal side effects.  Using thin needles, a patient’s own PRP, which is obtained from the blood is injected into the scalp to trigger natural hair growth.

How does PRP work?

Being a non-surgical procedure, PRP utilizes the stem cells and growth factors from the patient’s own blood to trigger the growth of hair by increasing blood supply to the hair follicle and improving the thickness of the hair shaft. It is a simple procedure involving the following steps:

  • Patient’s blood is drawn into a specialized tube for centrifugation
  • After centrifugation, the platelets and plasma separate from the rest of the blood
  • The concentrated part of the plasma with platelets, called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is injected into the scalp.

Who can benefit from PRP treatment?

  • Men and women who began losing hair within the last five years
  • Balding men
  • Women experiencing hair loss as a result of menopause or other hormonal change

PRP treatment for hair growth is considered very safe since there will not be any allergic reaction and other side effects as the treatment is done with the components of a person’s own blood. Consistent results can be achieved with multiple sessions and close monitoring over time. PRP treatment has an impressive success rate and is definitely an option for those who do not want to undergo hair transplantation.
