Here’s Why PRP Is The Way To The Future!

Recent years have brought forth a range of new treatments and therapies for people who are having hair trouble. While a hair transplant is a good choice for people who have large bald spots, there are those who are not ready for such an invasive procedure and wish to look at other avenues first. PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is one such method that is fast gaining a lot of popularity with people with hair loss.

What is PRP ?

PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma treatment could soon emerge as the best hair loss treatment for people who are having trouble maintaining the hair on their heads. While it has shown promising results with people who have only started losing hair or whose hair loss is yet to stabilise, the best results have been seen in people who have already undergone a hair transplant.
Once the extremely fragile grafts have been implanted into place, they need all the help they can get to take hold and allow for the growth of new hair. This is where PRP for hair loss comes into action, because the growth factors in the platelet rich plasma can help the grafts flourish. Platelets have several intracellular structures, some of which include glycogen, lysosomes and alpha granules. Each of these is responsible for the healing of the body as well as assists general growth. This is one of the reasons why PRP works really well after a hair transplant.

PRP Procedure & Cost

When you are looking for an effective method for hair gain , a transplant might be your best bet, but PRP therapy can certainly be helpful in the long run. The injections can support hair growth and ensure that there is proper production of collagen as well.
The procedure is fairly simple – blood is drawn from your body and placed in a centrifuge, wherein the platelet rich plasma is separated. This plasma is then treated with growth factors and ready to be injected. You will be given a dose of local anaesthesia and then the serum will be injected into your scalp. Once the anaesthesia wears off, you will be able to leave and return to your normal routine in a day’s time.

PRP hair treatment cost in India will vary from clinic to clinic and will also be dependent on other factors such as the experience of the doctor, the number of sessions you will require and the number of injections you might need.

Side Effects of PRP Hair Therapy

Because the procedure is done using the patient’s own blood, the chances of anything going wrong are minimal, but as is the case with any medical procedure there are the possibilities of a few side effects:

  • Even though the entire procedure is done under anaesthesia, some people tend to complain about a little pain. However, the pain does tend to subside in a matter of hours, or at the most, within a day.
  • For certain people, there can be a tiny amount of bleeding from the sites, where the injections were administered. This too should subside in a matter of hours.
  • In some cases, there is a little redness and swelling at the injection sites, but these too will not last for more than a few hours, or at the most a day.
  • In some cases, people have complained of a headache, but generally it does not last for more than a day or two.
  • Some people have also complained of a tightness in their scalp, and this emerges immediately after the injections. This feeling should last for at the most one day.

Benefits of PRP Hair Therapy

    There are actually innumerable reasons why a growing number of people are opting for PRP therapy and why even doctors are suggesting the same. The major ones include:

  • The serum that is injected into your scalp is made using your own blood, which is why you have nothing to fear. Because your own blood is being used, the chances of the body rejecting the same are minimal and this is also why the chances of success are also greater.
  • Given that your blood will be used, there are no chances of any infections or allergies either, increasing the possibilities of success.
  • The procedure needs nothing more than a few injections, which are all administered under local anaesthesia. This means that you will not have to suffer any pain, apart from the one needle prick of the anaesthesia injection.
  • Even if the therapy does not give you the kind of results you might have expected, you will certainly not face any further loss of hair, because of this procedure.

PRP FAQ

Blood is taken from your body and the powerful Platelet Rich Plasma is extracted from the blood. This plasma is then fortified with other growth factors and then injected back into your body. The platelets promote hair growth, leading to better results, especially after a hair transplant session.

This is something that would differ from patient to patient – while for some people it might take less than half an hour, for others it could take more. However, on an average, you will need only a few hours, total and because there are no sedatives or medications involved, you will be able to return home.

This too is something that will vary from person to person, because each body has a different manner of responding to treatments. However, in most cases, the results start becoming visible in a matter of weeks

Absolutely not! Before the session begins, you will be given a local anaesthetic, because of which, there will be absolutely no discomfort or pain. Normally, no sedation or medication is administered, which is why as soon as the anaesthetic wears off, you will be able to leave.
