Platelet Rich Plasma – Looksforever Hair Aesthetic Clinic, Noida / Delhi
What is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is a radical new treatment for hair loss. It is adaptable and can be used with hair transplant surgery, or as an independent treatment for hair thinning. Many hair transplant surgeons are already using this technology as it is NON surgical and non invasive. The stimulation and access to high concentrations of growth factors has been shown to generate new hair growth and thicken existing hair growth in good health. In one case PRP treatment has caused hair regrowth in an Alopecia Areata patient.
Platelets are responsible for body’s ability to stop bleeding and repair damaged blood vessels and cells in the body. The activation and rejuvenation of cells in the body is done by substances called growth factors which are contained in the Platelets. The concentrated platelets in PRP contain tremendous amounts of bioactive proteins, which include the growth factors PDGF and VEGF which have shown to initiate accelerated tissue repair, and, as per experts they have also been shown to have positive effects for hair loss treatment. Most importantly, evidence suggests that PRP, when injected into the balding area, can reverse the miniaturization process of hair follicles (a result of dehydrotestosterone, DHT),
This is how Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment Functions:
Platelet Rich Plasma-PRP for Hair Regrowth
Platelets for PRP are derived from a patient’s own blood which is taken from the patient’s body using a syringe, like for any other laboratory procedure.
- PRP works by drawing and transforming the dead hair follicles into a working development stage.
- Your blood contains little cells called platelets that help in blood clot formation.
- Platelets additionally contain particular elements that when activated, help in tissue recovery and generation.
- These same elements may enable hair to develop or moderate the hair loss.
- The tubes containing withdrawn blood of the patient are placed in a centrifuge and then spun for a certain duration.
- The centrifuging causes the red and white blood cells to ‘spin down’ and congregates them at various levels in the tube. The platelet rich plasma is drawn from the appropriate level. Platelet-rich plasma contains 4 to 8 times the number of platelets per cubic centimeter found in normal plasma.
- Local anesthesia is given to the scalp so the patient feels no pain at all.
- The platelet rich plasma is then infused into the scalp. No sedation or prescription is required.
- Early recovery requires an administration of each nine to eighteen months.
With a little additional preparation the PRP is ready for application.
