Platelet Rich plasma promotes hair growth from follicles by the action of platelet derived growth factors on the hair follicle. The platelet growth factors induce follicle to shift from a dormant state to an active state that starts the process of hair growth, enhancing the hair growth and hair thickness from the dormant follicles. Even-though PRP is an advanced treatment, growth factor results in the form of hair -loss control and hair re-growth is certainly dependent on multiple factors like grade of alopecia, underlying medical conditions, nutritional health etc. and hence a multimodality approach is preferred to get a better outcome.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a new non-surgical method of hair loss treatment and hair restoration for women and men. PRP uses your own blood cells in a way that only the enriched cells that contain various types of proteins remain. This process is performed in the clinic where the blood is spun in a centrifuge and the PRP is separated and then removed from the rest of the blood.
PRP therapy for hair loss is extremely safe since it is drawn from the patient’s own blood centrifuged and then the concentrated platelets are injected into the affected region of the scalp. This treatment done once a month has seen promising results from hair fall control and re-growth perspective
