Are you seeking a non-invasive hair restoration method? Give PRP Treatment for hair loss a try and you will love the outcome. PRP hair loss therapy is the latest advancement in non-surgical hair loss restoration. The procedure involves injecting a few shots of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) into the scalp to help counter hair shedding and trigger new hair growth. Here we will share with you everything you want to know about PRP Treatment for Hair Loss.
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is a serum taken from your own blood. This concentrated serum is loaded with growth factors that help miniaturized hair follicles to become healthier and start producing more robust hair growth.
The treatment starts with a staff nurse taking blood sample from the patient. The blood is then centrifuged in a special apparatus to separate platelet rich plasma from red blood cells. Local anesthesia is then applied to the scalp to numb it. Once the scalp is completely numb, PRP is administered into the entire scalp using a series of injections, focusing more on the balding or thinning areas. The entire process takes up to 90 minutes to complete, as compared to the day long Hair Transplant surgery, which also involves months of recovery.
As is obvious from the procedure, it is a minimally invasive procedure that does not involve any incisions or stitches, and thus has a minimal recovery period. Do not wash your scalp for at least 12 hours after the treatment. Expect your scalp to remain sore and tender for up to 48 hours but this should not hinder your ability to perform your routine activities. You can go back to work immediately after the treatment, however, avoid exposing your scalp to sunlight. However hair regrowth may take some time. Usually regrowth process begins within 2 to 3 months but it becomes evident only after 4 to 8 months and continues to improve up to a year. A single treatment is typically enough to counter hair loss 2 years, but this may vary from person to person.
