Platelet rich plasma therapy for hair loss
Is it An Essential part of the Hair Transplant Surgery?
Platelet Rich Plasma or “PRP” is an injectable solution used to treat joint injury and delayed wound healing. However recently hair restoration physicians have discovered its beneficial role in acquiring better hair transplant results.
PRP is created by taking a sample of the patient’s blood, separating the blood into the cellular and fluid-like plasma component, removing a portion of the plasma enriched with platelets, and injecting the sample back into the patient’s scalp. The blood is separated into its cellular and plasma components by rapid spinning During the centrifugation process, the platelet enriched plasma becomes naturally enhanced with growth factors and anti-inflammatory elements; these components consequently contribute to the healing process and growth properties seen in PRP therapy.
How Does PRP Therapy Work?
PRP therapy is the injection of platelet-rich plasma solution into the area targeted. The PRP solution is obtained by taking a blood sample from the patient. The blood is placed in a centrifuge, which spins to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the other blood elements. The resulting PRP solution is concentrated blood plasma that contains approximately three times the number of platelets found in normal circulating blood in the body.
PRP Therapy for Hair Restoration
PRP offers a natural approach to treating male and female hair loss conditions, using the healing power of your own body. The high level of concentration of growth factors in the PRP solution stimulates inactive hair follicles into the growth phase and promotes improved blood flow to the area treated. The results can include restored hair growth, with improved quality and thickness in thinning and miniaturized hairs. We recommend that clients to conduct a PRP therapy sessions every 3 – 4 months.
