Male Pattern Baldness - Know PRP Role In It!

Male Pattern Baldness - Know PRP Role In It!

PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy is the process used for hair loss. This includes a three-step treatment in which a patient’s blood is withdrawn, treated, and then inoculated into the scalp.

Some of the medical communities think that PRP therapy affects natural growth and it is maintained by increasing the flow of blood to the hair follicle and thus increase in the thickness of the hair shaft.

Researchers have not yet found whether it is an effective treatment or not. However, PRP therapy is in use since the 1980s and has been used for various problems including healing ligaments, injured tendons, and muscles.

PRP Therapy Process-

PRP therapy process comprises of three steps and mostly requires three treatments with the gap of 4-6 weeks. Maintenance treatment is required every 4-6 months.

The steps are:

Step 1: The blood from the arm is withdrawn and put into a machine that separates fluids of different densities by spinning rapidly, known as centrifuge.

Step 2: After the blood is in the machine (centrifuge) for 10 minutes, it will get divided into three distinct layers:

  • Platelet-poor plasma

  • Red blood cells

  • Platelet-rich plasma

Step 3: After this, the platelet-rich plasma is moved into a syringe and inoculated into the areas of the scalp that needs to be treated for hair growth.

Risks of PRP Hair Loss-

Before the therapy starts, be very sure to inform about all the medications one is going through, whether it is any kind of supplements or herbs.

When a person is on the initial stage of the consultation, many consultants will recommend against the therapy if a person is:

  • On blood thinners

  • A chain smoker

  • Having a history of any drugs or alcohol misuse

A person can also be rejected from the treatment if he/she has been diagnosed with:

If one is concerned about the hair loss there are several other options such as medications like Rogaine (a liquid or foam to treat the hair loss) and Propecia (is an oral medicine that can be consumed for hair loss) and hair transplant surgery.

Before going through any treatment consult with the doctor so that he can advise you better according to the condition one is going through.

Hi Sir, My hair is rough & starting baldness from front. Please help me to cure it.

Hi Sir, My hair is rough & starting baldness from front. Please help me to cure it.
You can do yoga for hair growth balayam is a nail rubbing exercise and it is a union of two hindi words bal and vyayam where bal means hairs and vyayam indicates exercise. In simple language ‘balayam’ means an exercise for hairs. To be more specific, balayam is an acupressure therapy in which a person rubs his/her fingernails of both hands against each other to stimulate the scalp’s activities. This stimulation if done correctly, frequently and for a longer period of time is known to boost natural hair growth and cure mpb (i.e. Male pattern baldness or androgenic alopecia) observed in some men and women. Method: rub four fingernails (except thumb) of both hands (as hard as possible) against each other. The surface of fingernails should rub hard against each other. Since roots of hair follicles on the scalp are connected to fingernails, this pressure creation will help in pumping required nutrition to the scalp if you rub the tip of fingernails of one hand against the surface of fingernails of another hand, then it accelerates hair growth on ears. If you rub surfaces of only both thumbnails against each other, you can notice faster growth of moustache and beard. (so women should avoid it) if you rub nail tips of one hand with the surface of other hand’s nails, hair in ears will grow. So, it is important to rub without causing friction to nail ends and avoid thumbs. Apart from this exercise, try to quit smoking and have control over alcohol consumption. Also add at least 80-100 gms of protein (soy is preferable), 30 gms of iron and enough sulphur. Drink plenty of pure water, which can help to remove toxins from your body. If you are suffering from anaemia, increase your iron intake. Do this at least for 10 minutes (increase time limit if your hair fall is more) in the morning, before breakfast and 10 minutes in the evening, before dinner. Along with this yoga, practice prithvi mudra for 40 minutes each day. People having high blood pressure should avoid balayam. It may aggravate the condition. Letting your hair get enough sunlight every day is also important. Balayam may not be effective in types of baldness like alopecia areata, alopecia totalis, alopecia universalis etc. Within 3-6 months, you will see a noticeable change in your hairline. After 12 months of regular practice with a proper diet, your lost hair should be restored.

It may not help for permanent solution. Better take homoeopathic treatment to cure hair fall and then take acidum phosphoricum 30.

Does masturbation everyday make my hair thinner if my scalp is sensitive to dht or if I am prone to male pattern baldness.

Does masturbation everyday make my hair thinner if my scalp is sensitive to dht or if I am prone to male pattern bald...
Hello- Yes it does. After years of excessive masturbation, males will begin to notice different stages of hair loss, depending on the severity of their masturbatory activity. Think of masturbation as a chemical reaction that unleashes a bevy of hormones, proteins and neurotransmitters. After an ejaculation, the body triggers a testosterone to DHT conversion in the prostate and testicles. And years of excessive masturbation result will result in an enormous DHT buildup that damages hair follicles and their roots.

If you are using 5% Minoxidil solution then yes you can (& you should) use 1ml solution twice a day but if you are using 10% solution then once a day is enough. It usually takes 3 to 6 months to see a visible difference.

Hi Mr. lybrate-user, cases of alopecia areata need to be treated with caution. I suggest do not apply any liquids externally unless prescribed by a qualified physician or dermatologist. As mishandled cases can lead to cicatricial alopecia leading to hair follicle damage. We can't expect hair growth if it goes to that stage.
