Suffering From Hair Fall - Ways PRP Therapy Can Be Of Help!

PRP treatment for hair loss is a treatment that includes drawing back a patient's own blood, preparing and processing it in a way that only the patient’s PRP (platelet-rich plasma) cells remain, and then it is infused it into the scalp. PRP contains basic proteins that help in regular hair development.

This is how the platelet rich plasma treatment functions:

  1. PRP works by d rawing and transforming the dead hair follicles into a working development stage.
  2. Your blood contains little cells called platelets that help in blood clot formation.
  3. Platelets additionally contain particular elements that when activated, help in tissue recovery and generation.
  4. These same elements may enable hair to develop or moderate the hair loss.
  5. Blood is drawn and afterwards spun in an axis, which helps in isolating the platelet rich plasma from whatever remains of the blood.
  6. Local anesthesia is given to the scalp so the patient feels no pain at all.
  7. The platelet rich plasma is then infused into the scalp. No sedation or prescription is required.
  8. Early recovery requires an administration of each nine to eighteen months.

Results may vary from person to person. However, all the treatments have shown optimistic results so far. It should not be considered a “cure” for hair loss since no guarantees can be taken as yet. Some people might feel that this is not suitable for them.
