Hair loss has always been alarming for individuals, especially during a young age. Hair thinning can eventually lead to patchy baldness and can be brutal to your self-confidence. Multiple causes of hair fall have been reported that extend from hormonal changes, medicinal side effects, hair treatment damage, heredity etc
This new non-surgical therapy can bring out dramatic results and boost hair growth yet again. The process may seem complex, but results are fine and evident right after the very first session. We are talking about PRP therapy!
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma which is extracted from a person’s blood and used to aid the growth or heal process. This plasma has magical properties which work rapidly when injected into the scalp. The treatment not just boosts hair growth but also strengthens hair follicles.
The PRP Hair Loss Treatment
You must be scared of what PRP sounds like, but do not worry as the process is made pain free by applying numbing creams to the scalp.
At first, a person’s blood is extracted from his or her arm and the tube is loaded into a centrifuge. This machine is vitally known for separating blood into red blood cells from plasma. Once the process begins, the machine divides the extracted blood into rich platelets, low platelets and red blood cells.
The scalp is numbed using numbing creams or local anaesthesia to make PRP injections pain free. The rich plasma is then injected into the target areas at every half inch at the level of the hair follicle of the affected area to curb hair loss.
The entire procedure takes approximately half an hour; however, the number of sessions may vary from person to person.
PRP and its benefits
Clinical studies have revealed that PRP can evidently reverse the effects of hair loss and hair thinning. From follicle healing to strengthening it, PRP treatment can do magic for people suffering from hair fall.
