Platelet Rich Plasma, also known as PRP, is an effective treatment modality for non surgical hair restoration.
It is an alternative procedure that stimulates the growth of new hair in males and females that wish for more natural approach. This non-surgical PRP hair restoration treatment has many benefits. This therapy has gained popularity due to its minimal invasiveness, autologous nature, absence of significant complications and side effects. It is a more affordable choice compared to other surgical options.
Hair restoration provided through a platelet-rich plasma implements the natural stem cells and growth factors of a patient. Blood is drawn from the body of the individual so that it can be prepared for the PRP Microneedling and /or injections.Recent studies recognize PRP therapy as one of the promising treatment modality for hair growth restoration and promotion. The evidence in the studies Platelet-Rich Plasma as a Treatment for Androgenetic Alopecia” supports that the growth factors contained in a PRP are responsible to help to stimulate hair follicle growth.
The causes of hair loss are different, and the most common ones are listed below:
- Unbalanced diet
- Physical or emotional stress
- Hormonal imbalances
- Absence of proper hair care
- Autoimmune disorders
The science behind platelet-rich plasma hair restoration involves blood vessel reparation, increased collagen production, wound healing, and cell growth. As the follicles are stimulated through each PRP treatment, the hair is going to grow in thicker and healthier. This procedure is beneficial as a stand-alone treatment of alopecia, and male pattern baldness. It has been. shown to work more rapidly and effectively when combined with other treatment modalities.
PRP for hair growth might be more successful if used with other nonsurgical approaches such as Minoxidil and DHT blocker therapies. Platelet Rich Plasma therapy could also be an alternative option for those who are not candidates to perform more invasive surgical procedures for hair restoration.
IS PRP FOR ME?
Even though there is no guarantee that PRP treatment has absolute effectiveness in hair restoration, a preliminary result of the studies has good, encouraging results. Platelet Rich Plasma is considered a safe and natural treatment. It utilizes the platelets from your own body and there is minimal chance of developing an allergic reaction.
Hair PRP is considered effective for people with live hair follicles. If your hair follicles are damaged or lost, this procedure is not for you. This type of treatment is also contraindicated for people with a history of:
- Blood-clotting disorder
- Active infection of the scalp
- Those who take immunosuppressant and blood-thinning medications should also avoid PRP therapy.
This procedure needs to be performed several times (we recommend at least 3 procedures), every three to four weeks to be effective. Platelet Rich Plasma treatments can help create new blood vessels in your scalp and stimulate hair growth. After the treatment, you might experience a mild inflammatory response at the procedure site, which might cause tenderness of your scalp for some days.
Before you opt to get PRP hair restorative therapy, take some time to understand what the process actually involves and what it entails. For PRP therapy, proper consultation is necessary to determine the severity of the alopecia as well as the chances of success that a person stands to gain from the procedure.
While you may have to wait weeks or a few months to see the difference, the results can be a dramatic improvement in hair strength, thickness, and quality. Nothing is more beautiful than a thick, healthy head of hair.
