Hair loss is a very common problem among people and it affects our lives at a great scale. Most of us are in the search for a treatment for hair loss, trying to find hair growth factors that will help. Apart from hair transplant there is a therapy called PRP that boosts hair growth. All around the world, this treatment has been gaining popularity within the last few years.
Platelet-rich Plasma therapy is for hair loss and involves a three-step medical treatment. Blood is drawn from the patient and then injected to the scalp after going through some processes.
Some surgeons consider that these PRP injections trigger natural hair growth by increasing the amount of blood supply to the hair follicles and thicken the hair shaft. Some other procedures are combined with this therapy in order to boost the results.
There are some searches on PRP therapy, but they aren’t enough to draw a conclusion on its effectiveness. Along with hair restoration, this procedure has been used for many other problems such as injured muscles and tendons.
As mentioned above, this is a process that involves 3 steps. Generally, one session is not enough to see results. So, patients require a couple of PRP treatments that are 4-6 weeks apart from each other.
First of all, the blood is drawn from the patient and then it’s put into a centrifuge, which is a machine that spins rapidly in order to separates fluids of different densities in the blood.
After the centrifuge process, you will find your blood separated in 3 different layers, which are listed below:
red blood cells
The layer that has platelet-rich plasma is drawn up into an injector and then it’s injected to the areas of the scalp where the hair growth is desired.
Even if this method is used for many years, there haven’t been enough clinical searches to scientifically prove its efficiency when the hair growth is concerned.
PRP for hair treatment uses patient’s own blood, so it’s safe to say that there’s no chance of patients to get a communicable disease. Nevertheless, as the treatment involves injections and below you can find the risks may arise due to injection.
Still, any therapy that involves injections always carries a risk of side effects such as:
Your body may react negatively to the anesthetic used for PRP treatment. Therefore, if you decided to receive this therapy for hair loss, it would be accurate to discuss it with your doctor to see your tolerance to anesthetics.
Surgeons say, anyone who just started to observe their hair thinning is a good candidate for the therapy. PRP works best for patients with androgenic alopecia, female pattern baldness, female pattern hair loss, male pattern hair loss. Yet still, it’s very important to be consistent with the therapy to see results.
Make sure you consult a professional before deciding whether you are a good candidate for the therapy or not
In order to get visible results, one should be consistent. As stated earlier, PRP therapy consists of 3 treatments with some time in between. Also, there are maintenance treatments to be done every few months. Even if the price changes, depending on the equipment used, insurances, location and the physician who’ll perform the operation
your geographic location the price varies.
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. Plasma is the liquid portion of whole blood. It includes water and some important proteins.
They last for 1-2 months and then patient need to check. If there is any improvement trying for 3-4 more times is recommended.
There are no chemicals inside PRP injections. They are just liquid part of patients own blood.
No. Because we procure it from patients own blood, PRP has no known side effects.
No. We apply them with finest needles. Patients do not feel any kind of pain.
PRP on applied area is like a artificial circulation. It stimulate collagen production which is a important part of hair. It speed up the healing process after hair transplant. It is not an expensive traetment. It is a natural type of treatment without and side effects.
