Hello,

I am Dr. Rajeev Vij, I am a dermatologist and today I am going to discuss the one revolutionary treatment that we are having at present in dermatology, it is PRP and I am going to discuss PRP and its effect on hair growth. Normally we see in androgenetic alopecia when the patient comes to us, he develops the hair thinning. So, gradually he was having the bulk of hairs but because the hairs are becoming thinner because of the male hormone that is attached to the hair follicle, the hair becomes very thin and this leads to baldness. Now previously when be used to treat that with medicines, it used to take a lot of time means patient used to take 3-4 years even then the desired growth was not there but with PRP it is a revolutionized treatment by which we can give results within few months. Now PRP is a treatment where we extract blood from the patient and that is just 15ml or 20 ml and with this blood we extract platelets.

Normally in blood platelets are 1 lakh to 1.5 lakh but in PRP the growth the number of platelets about 10 lakh to 12 lakh. When these platelets are injected into the scalp, they are having growth factors and because of these growth factors, the hairs grow very rapidly. I would like to share a few of my photographs with patients that we have treated. Now, this is a patient he was almost completely bald. When we treated this patient, within three weeks he was having this much hair and within the next three weeks he was having this much hair and now this is the result after third sitting. So, you can see, just in 9 weeks the patient was from baldness to he has got regained whole confidence within a span of 9 weeks so that means just 2 months. So, I want to share that this is a very good treatment, revolutionary treatment but make sure whenever you go for PRP you have to make sure ask your doctor to show him his results because if PRP is properly prepared and the PRP is having a proper concentration of platelets, so normally we get this kind of results.

So, if the patient if it is not properly prepared then you won't get exact good results and the very good thing about this treatment is that it is free of any side effects. There is no side effect at all and in case you go for transplantation you have to extract hairs from back and get it transplanted in front of your hairs and then it's being surgery and then the concentration that you get is not as much as that you get as you get in PRP. And the main thing is even the patient who has gone for transplantation if they go for PRP it can lead to enhancement of hairs. And one more thing I would like to share that with PRP when we do PRP there is a lot of improvement in patient's dandruff patient and even the patient who is suffering from psoriasis they tend to diminish a lot, they clear almost what you cannot have attained even after giving so many of medicines.

I will also share photographs of one patient of psoriasis whom I had treated for PRP with very good results almost he got his skull cleared within a period of 10 to 15 days and the most PRP is not a major procedure, it's a minor procedure where when you get PRP done there is generally only slight swelling can be there that too for say half an hour or 1 hour. So, even after getting PRP you go to your office work and the results are very rapid and the most the best advantage of PRP is that it is not having any side effects, there are no adverse effects till date there is no reported side effect of PRP. So, I think I will share my further photographs. This is my patient where these results are just of 3 sittings. This is before treatment, this is after treatment. And this is a female patient who was almost completely bald and this we have got this result within just a span of 4 sittings and with this, I think I have cleared most of your doubts. 

Thanks!

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) - All You Should Know About It!

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) - All You Should Know About It!

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein derived from whole blood, centrifuged to remove red blood cells. It has a greater concentration of growth factors and other cytokines that can stimulate healing of soft tissue and joints. The concentration of growth factors can be 5 to 10 times greater (or richer) than whole blood and has been used to encourage a brisk healing response across several specialities, in particular dentistry, orthopaedics and dermatology. Once this is accomplished, the concentrated platelets are re-injected into the damaged area like the knees, elbows, shoulders, hips and even Achilles tendons.

PRP therapy is a relatively new procedure - It was first developed in the 1970s and first used in Italy in 1987 in an open heart surgery procedure, but scientific and medical research shows that it is safe to perform. Because of that, it’s steadfastly on its way to becoming the primary means of treatment in many different medical fields such as cosmetic surgery, dentistry, sports medicine and pain management, most commonly treating hair loss (and other things, like injuries). Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment is frequently called stem cell treatment due to the fact that it behaves as bringing in cells from a person’s own body, which can then actually differentiate into either tendon, cartilage, or ligament cells.

Use of PRP in Dermatology
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) helps you harness the natural aesthetic powers of your own platelets to augment your facial rejuvenation. When done properly, PRP creates impressive results both as an isolated procedure or when incorporated into a treatment plan with hyaluronic acid fillers, neuromodulators, volume restoration and technology. The major advantage is it can be done in the clinician's office and produces virtually no downtime in the treatment of wrinklesmelasma, and acne scars. Exceptionally, there is some downtime when it is used to treat the lower eyelids. The aesthetic benefits it generates are dramatic!

Skin Rejuvenation and Ageing
The goal of PRP skin rejuvenation therapy is to improve skin tone and texture, tighten skin, and soften lines and pores. The PRP, injected into specific areas of the skin, act as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, and thus acts as to naturally smooth and tighten the skin. Results begin to show 3-4 weeks after the treatment session and continue to improve with time. Three treatment sessions are generally recommended, spaced 1-2 months apart, to achieve the best outcome. In this way, PRP softens wrinkles and creating smoother skin texture and tone, thus making you look younger!

Acne, Scar and Ulcer Treatment
PRP is used to correct pitted acne scars on the skin. You may have heard about this acne scar treatment technique, which is also known as the “Vampire Facial,” as it has gained popularity amongst celebrities and beauty insiders. Once the platelet-rich blood is injected into sites on the face with acne scars, the concentrated platelets release a host of beneficial growth factors that help to promote healing and stimulate regrowth of collagen and elastin. PRP can also been used as an adjuvant for improving the viability of grafts for the treatment of recalcitrant ulcers, with good results.

PRP might not be a panacea or universal cure, but it could turn out to be a miracle treatment nonetheless!

Anti-Aging Dermatology Treatments - Understanding The Types & Benefits!

Anti-Aging Dermatology Treatments - Understanding The Types & Benefits!

All of us have the innate desire to age gracefully. We want to think like a 40 but look like a 20. Nevertheless, with few treatments, you can undo the signs of aging to restore your youthful glow.

Types-

  1. Laser Treatment: This method uses laser beams to generate heat energy for stimulating growth of new collagen fibers. This leaves your skin supple and rejuvenated.

  2. Botox Injections: One can do away with wrinkles by the use of unadulterated Botulinum toxin A. When injected in a small amount, they block the nerves and prevent contraction of the muscles. Hence, the skin appears less wrinkled and even smoother.

  3. Chemical Peel: Here, the doctor coats the affected areas of the skin with acid, thus causing microscopic exfoliation & new collagen formation and eliminating lines, creases and age spots.

  4. Dermabrasion: The procedure requires sanding the epidermis (upper skin layer) with the help of a rotating brush done with Aluminium Oxide Crystals. A new skin layer eventually replaces the old one that gets removed in the process.

  5. Face-lift: The method involves eliminating the excess skin and fat from the neck and the lower face, thus helping to tighten up the connective tissue and the underlying muscle.

  6. Soft Tissue Fillers: Soft tissue fillers including hyaluronic acid, collagen and fat can be injected into the creases on the face. This helps to plump and level out the furrows.

Benefits-

Anti-ageing treatments address and treat the following skin issues associated with age:

  1. Loss of one’s skin firmness

  2. Reduced elasticity of the skin

  3. Increased skin dryness

  4. Pigmentation disorders, such as uneven pigmentation or age spots

  5. Loss of skin radiance

  6. Wrinkle formation

  7. Increased vulnerability to rashes and bruises

  8. Greater translucency resulting in visibility of the veins

  9. Increased redness due to enlarged blood vessels

Hair Loss - How Can PRP Therapy Be Of Help?

Hair Loss - How Can PRP Therapy Be Of Help?

Hair loss is a prime concern for many men and women these days, whether it is genetic, due to stress, bad haircare or any medical condition. But with advances in the field and adequate research, various new techniques have cropped up in the market which can combat the condition with ease. Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP, is showing impressive results in reversing hair loss. 

PRP is a non-surgical therapeutic hair restoration option. It is suitable for both men and women. It is a state-of-the-art, totally natural, alternative medical procedure used for the treatment of hair loss or hair thinning. It is an injectable treatment which uses the patient’s own blood.  

PRP has been in use in the medical field for two decades, and offers some promising potential for stimulating hair growth. However, no definitive studies yet exist that confirms its efficacy.

Advantages of PRP Therapy

PRP can be helpful in:

  1. Slowing the rate of hair loss
  2. Regrowing thinning hair to be thicker and full
  3. Boosting the health and condition of the scalp
  4. Stimulating collagen levels
  5. Preparing the scalp for hair transplantation & post hair transplantation

PRP can also assist in the treatment of skin and scalp conditions such as:

  1. Dry, itchy and inflamed scalp
  2. Genetic hair loss
  3. Alopecia areata
  4. Telogen effluvium (commonly caused by stress)

 How PRP Works?

The scalp is cleansed and numbing cream applied. While the scalp is prepared, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient. This blood is then centrifuged to produce the Platelet Rich Plasma. The PRP component is taken from the blood and injected or infused into the scalp or areas of hair loss. Patients are able to resume normal activities after this procedure.  

PRP harnesses the growth factors carried in the blood supply and then delivers a concentrated dose back to the affected scalp and hair follicles. The growth factors in the platelets stimulate the follicles to grow hair. The hair follicles in the resting phase (telogen) may be pushed into growth, and this will appear as new hair growth.

Who is a candidate for PRP?
Men or women who have early stages male or female pattern baldness are suitable candidates for PRP.  It is also suitable for men or women who are currently using hair loss medications; or those who are experiencing or expect to experience post-partum hair loss. It is also suitable for those who have had or plan to have hair transplant surgery

However, you are not a candidate for PRP if you:

  1. Have medical conditions such as chronic liver disease, skin diseases or cancer, metabolic and systemic disorders
  2. Have undergone anti-coagulation therapy
  3. If you have any type of platelet dysfunction syndromes
