What is PRP?
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.

How does PRP works?
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:
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.
How much will PRP therapy cost?
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.

What are the benefits of PRP?
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.
What are the side effect of PRP?
One of the reasons why PRP treatment in Bangalore has become so popular is that there are no known side effects, as the procedure uses blood from your own body. Because there are no cuts and incisions, there are minimal chances of infections or rejection. However, as it is a medical procedure, there could be some side effects, such as:
There could be a little pain or irritation, post procedure, but this will subside in a matter of hours.
For some people, there could be a little bleeding where the injections are being administered, but this too is not a thing to worry about. The bleeding will not be excessive and will subside in some time.
In some cases, there is a little redness or swelling at the injection sites, but both are problems that will subside in a matter of hours.
Some people complain about headaches or tightness in their scalps post procedure, but this is a simple side effect of the injections and will disappear in a day or two.
Some people have also complained of tightness in their scalp, and this emerges immediately after the injections. This feeling should last for at the most one day.
