PRP Hair Treatment & Rejuvenation
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) for hair rejuvenation is a simple and safe treatment to address hair thinning; it involves a three-step process, including drawing, processing and reinjecting a small amount of your own blood into the scalp. This delivers growth factors that stimulate hair follicles to extend their lifecycle and prevent early regression as well as improve hair volume and thickness. It does so by using its growth factors to boost and regenerate collagen.
PRP therapy is a three-step process. Most PRP therapy requires three treatments 4–6 weeks apart.
Maintenance treatments are required every 4–6 months.
Who Should Consider PRP Treatment
Usually, the PRP treatment is recommended when your hair has recently begun noticeably thinning, and you are in the early stages of hair loss. That means you still have an adequate number of active hair follicles, even if they produce wispy hair or no hair at all. Note that if you have severe depletion of follicles, then the treatment might not be recommended. Most healthy individuals can easily undergo PRP treatments. Certain conditions like blood and platelet disorders, chronic liver disease, presence of an active severe infection, cardiovascular or hemodynamic instability, and/or blood-thinning medication would make PRP unsuitable. Recent steroid treatments and smoking are not recommended for PRP candidates and should be discussed prior to treatment.
Benefits of PRP Treatment
Platelet Rich Plasma is derived from blood. These plasma-derived platelets are rich in growth factors and proteins, and they can help stimulate hair growth. It usually starts with a reduction in hair shedding, followed by regrowth of hair.
PRP therapy is not known to have any side effects, the mild bruising or tenderness at the injection site does not last long and there is no recovery time required. Patients can get back to normal living almost immediately after the procedure. The results of the procedure can be visible within a few weeks.
