PRP or platelet rich plasma is a highly effective hair loss procedure that is helping patients suffering from non-scarring alopecia. This procedure has done wonders for patients who suffer from the androgenetic alopecia common form of hair loss in both men and women. However, before PRP treatment is given a comprehensive medical evaluation is conducted and only then the doctor would proceed. Generally, PRP treatment consists of four sessions every 15 days and then three maintenance doses once a month. Our hair is significantly important to us because hair loss can affect the external image of a person but worse it can also cause emotional damage when a person starts to lose hair at a young age.
It’s a simple procedure and here how it is done
Doctors draw blood from the patient to extract the plasma and platelets and for that, they use centrifuge machine. Once the plasma is extracted it is injected back into the patient’s scalp to start the rejuvenation process. But when blood flow decreases to our head the necessary nutrients that are need to nourish our hair does not reach the roots we start to lose hair. PRP has been used to cure injuries and help make ligaments strong and the same principle is being applied here.
PRP has elements that can activate dormant hair follicles
PRP is a very safe procedure with a few side effects like soreness at the injection site, redness, and headache but that is temporary. But it has the power to stimulate inactive or dormant hair follicles to help you regain hair density. It is particularly very helpful for women because hair transplant sometimes does not work on women and PRP helps stops hair fall and helps start hair growth and the new hair will be full of strong roots.
