I have suffers from hair fall and after two years I am going from hair dandruff problem what type of shampoo can I use? What I do for this type problem?
Hair Loss is a major concern for each and every individual, as it hampers one’s style and has a major impact on the self-confidence. Male-pattern hair loss has a combination of male hormones and genetics, while on the other hand, the cause behind hair loss in females is supposed to be autoimmune in nature.
Platelet-Rich Plasma is one of the many treatments for hair loss, which people can try out and get desired result. The plasma contains white blood cells and platelets, which are rich in growth factors. Let’s go deep into what exactly Platelet-Rich Plasma is and its role in hair growth.
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?
Platelet-rich plasma or PRP is a concentration of platelet-rich plasma protein, which gets derived from whole blood, with the aim to remove red blood cells. There is a fairly greater concentration of growth factors than whole blood and it is generally used to encourage a swift healing response to different specialities.
Using PRP is a great option for treating the problem of hair loss as it has numerous scientifically based articles showing:
- Its effectiveness in increasing hair count
- Thickness of the hair
- Rapid increase in the growth phase of hair cycle
Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment Procedure
It involves a standard blood drawn from a patient’s arm. The tube containing the blood is put inside a machine, known as a centrifuge, which helps to spin the blood tube and get the red blood cells separated from the plasma. Then the plasma, which is rich in platelets, gets injected directly on to the scalp, right at the level of the hair follicles.
The process is carried out meticulously, which starts off with injections across the scalp that are injected approximately at every half inch over the area, having thin hair as a result of hair fall.
The whole process takes less than 30 minutes to get completed.
Maintaining consistency is the key towards achieving the best results of this treatment. People need to undergo this treatment ideally once a month for three to four months in the initial phase and then gradually increase it to every six months thereafter. The extent of treatment depends upon how an individual patient responds and results it shows. If the treatment procedure is maintained on a regular basis, the desired results can be seen within the first two to three months.
There is no risk involved in being part of this treatment. Most of the patients receive injections without getting the areas numbed, as there is minimum discomfort. In case, a patient comes across any sort of pain, cool air or ice packs can be used to minimize it.
