P.R.P(Platelet Rich Plasma)
What is PRP.?
- Our blood has two components – Cellular (RBC, WBC, and Platelets) and plasma. On spinning the blood the components get separated in layers – Red layer of RBCs, then a layer of WBCs, then Platelets and then a serum. After separation of RBCs and WBCs, with a special technique, a very high concentration(300 to 400 %) of platelets with plasma is achieved. These platelets contain various growth factors that can get activated on injection and in turn stimulate the existing weaker hair follicles to grow stronger & faster.
- Under local anesthesia, PRP is injected near the weak roots of the scalp with the help of specialized needles. It usually takes around an hour & a half in total. Don’t come for the procedure empty stomach for PRP treatment. There is no downtime and no need for aftercare.
- There are no international guidelines for how many times & at what intervals. Usually, PRP is repeated at a one-month interval for 4 to 6 times.
Expectation after PRP injections:
Expect the thinner hair to become thicker to quite an extent and also helps in stopping hair fall. The effects of PRP will be evident in a few months after certain repetitions. It is usually used as a part of multi-therapy e.g. along with LLLT, oral, topical, or mesotherapy medicines.
