When hair loss has just started, there are so many things that you can do to ensure that the rest of your hair do not fall out. However, there are a rare few procedures that are as effective as PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma therapy. This procedure is a great choice for people who have started losing hair, but want to stay away from the possibility of gaining bald spots soon. This is also the procedure of choice for people who want to try out something minimally invasive and don’t want to swallow many pills.
Human blood is an extremely complex formulation, but it is the platelets that assist with the clotting, when there is an injury. Platelets also have growth factors, which not only ensure growth, but also assist with the healing process. So, imagine a procedure in which, these platelets, made all the more potent, were injected back into your body? That is the basic tenet of PRP!
PRP is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure, which is a great option for people who want to try something before a transplant. PRP treatment for hair loss works great for men as well as women and is known to show some wonderful results.
The human blood has something called mesenchymal stem cells, which essentially contain growth factors and assist with the development of various parts of the body. For the PRP therapy to work, blood is drawn from the body and the platelets, which contain the mesenchymal stem cells, are harvested. The platelets are then treated with some other growth factors, turning the blood taken from your own body, into something of a super serum, and then the same is injected back into your body. For hair loss, this serum will be injected into your scalp, and this will help the follicles to grow better and stronger. When you come to AK Clinics for PRP treatment for hair in Bangalore, this is what the process will be like:
Using a regular syringe, blood will be collected from your body, most probably about 30 to 45 minutes before the procedure. Anywhere between 40 to 60cc of blood will be collected and the same will be stored in vials, till the next step.
The vials of blood are put inside a centrifuge for a few moments and this allows for the separation of the components that make up blood. Once the centrifugation process is complete, the samples will be stored in a sterile refrigerator, to ensure that there is no contamination.
The plasma is divided into three – the platelet poor plasma, the platelet rich plasma and the red blood cells. The growth factors are then separate and diluted using the plasma, making the serum ready for injection.
The potent plasma serum is then carefully injected into the scalp. Once the growth factors enter the blood stream, they stimulate the stem cells in the scalp, enabling new growth and a better life for the existing hair.
The cost of PRP therapy depends on a range of factors, starting from the actual clinic itself, the geographical location, the equipment that is being used, the experience and expertise of the doctor performing the procedure and also the number of sessions and injections you require.In case you are wondering what the PRP hair loss treatment cost in Bangalore’s AK Clinics will cost you, just get in touch with us!
Perhaps the biggest reason why you should consider PRP is because it accentuates the natural healing process of the body. Because it is blood from your own body, the chances of infections are minimal and also the chances of rejection from the body are also incredibly low. In addition, this is a procedure that will not require a lot of time from you, because a single session will last only about one to two hours. You will be able to see hair growth from the second or third session and thereon, you will notice that your hair is becoming thicker and healthier. The hair that will grow in will be natural and real, which means that you can style them the way you want.This is the procedure for people who are worried about invasive procedures, because there are no cuts, no scars and no long recovery period, because this is not a surgery!
Even though there is not much precaution that you need to take before a PRP therapy session, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind:
There is a reason why PRP is becoming so popular these days – the benefits of the procedure are too many:
This is a minimally invasive procedure, which means that there is next to no downtime and there is a really short recovery period. In most cases, people are able to return to most of their regular activities on the very next day.
Because it is your own blood that is being used, the chances of infection, allergies or your body rejecting the same are almost next to none.
Not only will hair fall reduce drastically post procedure, you will also notice that you are now enjoying a better rate of hair growth along with better hair texture in terms of smoothness and softness.
If the procedure is being done in tandem with a hair transplant, you can be sure of a better growth and the recovery period will also reduce, as the PRP helps in faster healing.
A small amount of blood is taken from the body and the extremely potent platelet rich plasma is extracted from the same. The plasma is converted into a powerful serum by means of addition of growth factors. This fortified serum is then injected back into the body, promoting better hair growth, improved texture of hair and improved healing of the scalp and hair follicles.
The frequency will change from person to person, but in most cases, 3 to 4 sessions are more than enough and each session is spaced about a month or so apart. While, for some people, maintenance sessions might be required once or twice a year, in the subsequent years. With PRP hair treatment in Bangalore from AK Clinics, you should be able to see new growth within 4 months or so.
PRP is often called a lunch time procedure, because it takes only about an hour or so, and because there is no downtime, you can actually return to work, as soon as the procedure is over.
There is no pain or discomfort associated with PRP – because it is only a series of injections, there are a lot of people who forgo any sedation or anaesthetic. However, when you are getting your PRP treatment in Bangalore from AK Clinics, we will ensure that a topical anaesthetic gel is applied to the scalp, ensuring absolutely no pain or discomfort. As soon as the anaesthesia wears off, you are free to leave.
Not only will you notice a visible reduction in your hair fall, you will also see the growth of hair caliber and the density will also visibly improve. In addition, the texture and general health of your hair will also improve.
Absolutely! This is not a gender specific therapy and can be done on both men and women. As a matter of fact, if you have been noticing your hair thinning or are bothered by your constant hair loss, then this is the procedure for you.
While there is no need to stop regular medication, if you are on blood thinners, you might be asked to stop for a few days. We have a team of trained medical practitioners and skilled doctors, who will be able to assist you with such questions.
Absolutely! PRP can be done before a transplant, after one or even during the transplant procedure. Not only will it plasma serum ensure faster healing, it will also ensure that you have faster and better hair growth, along with stimulating the hair that is already present on your scalp.
