Que: I got a hair transplant done almost 2 months back and now my doctor is suggesting that I undergo a PRP. What is a PRP and it is necessary?
Ans: PRP stands for platelet rich plasma and it is a therapy, in which blood is taken from your body and put in a centrifuge. The centrifugal process separates the platelets, which are the body’s natural healing mechanism. When a more concentrated level of platelets, which are treated with special ingredients, is injected into the scalp, it helps speed up the healing process and also rejuvenates the cells. In our experience, combining PRP with a hair transplant is a better idea, because it will benefit you in the long run. If you are suffering from hair loss in the non-transplanted area, then PRP would definitely be a good idea.
