What is Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, How is it applied?
Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a non-surgical treatment that utilizes the patient’s own blood to promote hair growth and treat hair loss. The treatment involves the extraction of a small sample of the patient’s blood, which is then processed to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the rest of the blood. The PRP is then injected into the scalp to stimulate the hair follicles and encourage new hair growth.
The process begins with the extraction of a small sample of the patient’s blood, typically from the arm or hand. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge, which is a machine that spins the blood at high speeds to separate the different components. The centrifuge separates the blood into three layers: the red blood cells, the plasma, and the platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
The PRP is then extracted and prepared for injection. The PRP is rich in growth factors and other nutrients that promote hair growth. The PRP is then injected into the scalp using a microneedling device or a needle, directly into the areas of the scalp where hair loss is present.
PRP therapy is considered a safe and effective method for promoting hair growth and treating hair loss. It has been shown to stimulate the hair follicles, increase blood flow to the scalp, and promote the growth of new hair. It is also a good alternative for people who are not suitable candidates for hair transplant surgery or who want to avoid the surgical procedure.
PRP therapy is usually performed in a series of treatments, typically once a month for 3-6 months to achieve optimal results. It is a non-invasive procedure and it does not require any recovery time. However, it is important to consult with a qualified and experienced hair restoration
