What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) hair restoration?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) hair restoration is a non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure designed to stimulate hair growth and improve the overall health of hair follicles. It involves using a patient’s own blood to extract platelets and plasma, which are then injected into the scalp. PRP therapy has gained popularity as a treatment for various types of hair loss, including androgenetic alopecia (pattern baldness) and other hair thinning conditions.
Here are some key points about PRP hair restoration:
A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient’s arm, similar to a standard blood test. The blood is processed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets and plasma from the red blood cells. The concentrated PRP, which contains growth factors and healing properties, is then injected into the scalp in areas affected by hair loss.
PRP hair restoration is believed to stimulate hair follicles, promote hair growth, and improve hair thickness and quality. It can be used to slow down hair loss and potentially reverse the thinning of hair in some cases. PRP may also enhance the results of other hair restoration treatments.
PRP injections are typically targeted at areas with hair loss or thinning, including the crown, frontal hairline, and temples.
PRP hair restoration is usually administered as a series of treatments, typically spaced a few weeks apart. Maintenance sessions may be recommended to sustain the results over time.
Downtime and Recovery
PRP hair restoration typically has minimal downtime. Patients may experience some minor discomfort, redness, or swelling at the injection sites, but these side effects are usually short-lived.
Results from PRP therapy are gradual and may become more noticeable over several months as hair follicles regenerate. Individual response to treatment can vary, and some patients may see more significant improvements than others.
PRP hair restoration is considered safe because it uses the patient’s own blood components, reducing the risk of allergic reactions or rejection. It is a non-surgical option with minimal side effects.
PRP hair restoration is suitable for individuals with mild to moderate hair loss or thinning. It may not be as effective for individuals with advanced baldness or areas where hair follicles are completely inactive.
