Hair loss is a prime concern for many men and women these days – whether it is genetic, due to stress, bad hair care or any medical condition. But with advances in the field and adequate research, various new techniques have cropped up in the market which can combat the condition with ease. Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP, is showing impressive results in reversing hair loss.
Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a non-surgical and non-invasive technique of treating loss of hair and promoting hair growth in both the sexes. The procedure involves extracting one’s blood and putting the same in a centrifugal machine in order to separate the blood from the plasma containing platelets. The science behind this technique is that the platelets contained in the plasma regenerate and heal the tissues. The plasma is then either injected or massaged onto the scalp post a derma-roller treatment on the affected areas.
The advantages of PRP include:
1)It is a very simple procedure, and also non-surgical cost-effective
2)The procedure doesn’t last long; for about 45 -60 minutes
3)Yields safe and reliable results
4)Faster recovery time
5)The end result looks quite natural
Eligibility For PRP
People suffering from thinning hair and Male/Female pattern baldness can opt for PRP therapy. However, if one has lost all his/her hair, he/she would not be able to undergo PRP. This therapy can only help thicken the presently thinning hair by strengthening the hair follicles; remember that it cannot produce new hair.
PRP warrants multiple sittings, but one usually notices hair growth from approximately the second session onwards. As mentioned, it strengthens weak hair follicles and boosts hair growth. The PRP procedure is safe and has no side effects. You might feel uncomfortable, or even scared, since the procedure involves needles and drawing blood, but pain is very minimal where anesthetic cream is also not required.
