PRP Therapy For Hair Loss

The term PRP basically refers to platelet-rich plasma, which is described as a procedure to enhance healing and hair growth after hair transplantation. A non-surgical therapy, PRP Hair Loss Treatment is the best option for patients who need stimulanon-surgical growth for hair loss conditions.

Advantages Of PRP Against Hair Loss

  • The most reliable and safe outcomes
  • Short recovery period
  • Natural looking results
  • Multiple Injections: procedure lasting around 60 to 90 minutes

A number of questions arise in our mind when we decide to go for PRP treatment. It is recommended to know everything before undergoing the treatment. This technique has been in use in the healthcare field for more than two decades as it offers promising potential for stimulating hair growth.

IS PRP Right For Me?

One of the most common questions that strikes in our mind is that is this treatment good enough for me? In a lay man’s language, it is considered a complementary procedure to other types of surgical or non-surgical hair restoration procedures.
You are not a candidate for PRP if you:

  • Suffering from severe medical conditions, including liver disease, skin diseases, cancer, etc.
  • Undergone anticoagulation therapy
  • Those who have any type of platelet dysfunction syndromes

What Are Platelets? 

The biological constituents of blood, along with red and white blood cells are called as Platelets. The platelets do not have a nucleus unlike red and white blood cells. This is the reason that they don’t qualify to be called cells. If we talk about the size, they are smaller than red as well as white cells.

As the components of the blood clotting system, platelets are quickly activated when injury disrupts a blood vessel and causes bleeding. Because the platelets contribute to the formation of a clot that stems the flow of blood. The platelets seem like contributing to clot formation in two ways:

  • By taking part in release of a cascade of chemical factors essential to the clot-forming process
  • Changing shape and interlocking with one another to plug the bleeding site by forming a physical barrier to blood flow.

The Growth-Factor Molecules Associated With Platelets

  • Platelet-derived growth factor helps to promote blood vessel growth, cell replication, skin formation, etc.
  • Transforming growth-factor-beta: The growth of matrix between cells, bone metabolism depends on it.
  • Vascular endothelial growth factor: That promote blood vessel formation.
  • Epidermal growth factor: Helpful in promoting cell growth and differentiation, blood vessel formation, collagen formation, etc.
  • Fibroblast growth factor-2: Promoting the growth of special cells, including blood vessel formation.
  • Insulin-like growth factor: A regulator of normal physiology in nearly every type of cell in the body.

PRP In Hair Transplantation

  • To preserve and enhance hair follicle viability during and after hair transplantation.
  • To enhance tissue repair and healing after hair transplantation.
  • To stimulate new hair growth.

Each and every platelet is a biochemical storehouse of regulatory, signaling and growth-factor molecules that helps in recovery and healing of tissue as well as emergency response to injury.
