PRP therapy, or platelet-rich plasma therapy, is a medical treatment in which a patient's own blood is used to stimulate the growth of new cells. In the case of hair loss, the patient's blood is drawn and then processed to isolate the platelets, which are then injected into the scalp.
The process for hair PRP therapy typically involves the following steps :
Blood draw : A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient's arm.
Processing : The blood is then processed to isolate the platelets using a centrifuge.
Injection : The platelets are then injected into the scalp using a small needle.
No-surgical procedure : This therapy is a non-surgical procedure, which means there is no need for anaesthesia or incisions.
Massage : The scalp is massaged to ensure even distribution of the platelets
The benefits of hair PRP therapy include :
Stimulation of hair growth : The platelets contain growth factors that can stimulate the growth of new hair
Improved hair thickness : PRP can also improve the thickness of existing hair.
Non-surgical procedure : PRP therapy is a non-surgical procedure, which means there is no need for anaesthesia or incisions.
Low-cost procedure : PRP therapy is generally less expensive than other hair restoration treatments.
Can be used in combination with other treatments : PRP therapy can be used in combination with other hair loss treatments, such as minoxidil or hair transplants, to enhance their effectiveness.
