Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy for Natural Hair Restoration
Whether it’s due to ageing or genetics or lifestyle changes, balding or thinning can affect men and women. Apart from surgical procedures which may seem like a last resort to treat hair loss, many people are now opting for a natural method to restore hair.
PRP or platelet rich plasma therapy involves drawing a small amount of patient’s blood which is then centrifuged to isolate PRP from blood’s constituents. PRP is then injected into patient’s scalp under the effect of local anesthesia or anesthetic cream which renders the procedure painless. The effects of local anesthesia to numb the scalp may take up to one hour to fade. There is no downtime after a PRP procedure, the patient can administer PRP as a lunchtime procedure and return to normal day to day activities. The injections are gentle on the scalp and do not cause any scarring
The results are assessed after 4 months during which minimum 3 PRP sessions are done separated by 3-4 weeks and can vary from person to person. Platelet rich plasma induces hair restoration by improving the circulation of blood in the scalp helps in improving overall volume and quality of hair. Since it quickens healing, it helps in healing the damaged roots and improving blood circulation to the scalp hence reducing hair fall and thinning of hair. Several Patients who are suffering due to continuous hair fall and thinning benefit from PRP therapy. The results are fairly permanent as compared medications. PRP can also be used to strengthen the results of a hair transplant. For more information on Platelet Rich Plasma, Please contact Reviva Clinic
