These days hair loss is one of the major concerns among men and women. It may be genetically inherited, due to stress, due to bad care or as a result of medical conditions. With the advancements in the field of hair loss and hair transplant in Delhi, many new methods and techniques have cropped up that can fight the problem of hair loss with ease. Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP is showing extraordinary results in reversing hair loss. Dr. Pradeep Sethi and Dr. Arika Bansal, well known hair transplant surgeons and cosmetic dermatologists, explain the procedure.
What is PRP?
Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy is a facelift done on the face in order to reduce lines, wrinkles and acne scars and helps build collagen within the skin.
Constituents of PRP
Blood supply sources the PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). Your blood contains:
- RED BLOOD CELLS that carry oxygen
- WHITE BLOOD CELLS that fights diseases and infection
- PLATELETS that repairs damage and injuries
- PLASMA that contains water and nutrients
The blood is extracted from the patient and is placed in the centrifuge. This separates the red blood cells and white blood cells from the platelets and the blood plasma. Therefore a liquid that is known as PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is created. PRP is a concentration of your body’s own platelets (to repair damage) and plasma (nutrients).
How does PRP for Hair Loss work?
PRP is a natural and very powerful hair loss solution in India that does not require daily pills or chemical lotions.
By creating an organized wound on the scalp during a PRP for Hair Loss Treatment, this will signal the body to send PLATELETS and PLASMA to the area, to repair the injured cells. By adding more PRP to the blood helps in increasing the amount of repairing cells and nutrients in the area of hair loss. This also exposes the cells of the skin and the follicles of the hair to large amounts of healing platelets and nutrient rich plasma.
Candidate for PRP
Individuals who are suffering from thinning hair and those with Androgenetic alopecia and women with male pattern alopecia can all take benefit from it.
Patients who take the PRP therapy will see a fuzz of hair after the fourth sitting. The treatment not only encourages the growth of hair but also helps in strengthening the hair follicles. It is a very safe procedure without any side effects. Since it involves drawing out blood and multiple needle pricks, it may seem uncomfortable and scary but a numbing cream is used prior to the procedure to reduce the discomfort.
