Can Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections Cure Hair Loss?
PRP, also known as platelet-rich plasma therapy, is one of the many treatment options available for hair loss sufferers. While this is a beneficial treatment, it is not suitable for every type of hair loss. People with thinning hair, are usually the right people but not always.
In PRP, a patient’s platelet cells from their blood are used to promote hair growth. PRP is prepared by a patient’s platelet cells extracted from their own blood. Platelets are part of our blood cells with various growth factors and proteins that speed up healing. These growth factors have the potential to promote tissue regeneration for hair growth.
At the time of appointment, we take a small blood sample, 10ml. Our expert technicians extract the maximum quality platelets from your blood by a special centrifuge technique. PRP is then injected into hair loss areas with a very small needle. We combine PRP treatment with micro-needling treatments to maximize the hair growth results. Overall, patients will experience an increase in hair counts, thickening, root strength, and a decrease in alopecia. Usually, there are no restrictions on moving back to your jobs after PRP treatment.
Who can be a good candidate for PRP treatment?
- Patients who are already receiving effective treatment but like to try to get a better outcome.
- Patients with hair loss had to discontinue minoxidil or other oral medications due to side effects.
- Men with baldness who do not want to apply topical minoxidil or many other oral medications.
- Patients who have already tried Low laser light treatment (LLLT).
How many PRP sessions do you recommend?
We recommend treatment every 3 months, so 4-5 times a year.
How long does one session last?
Preparation of PRP takes 30 minutes. Total one session takes about 40-45 minutes.
Are there any risks of this treatment?
It is usually a well-tolerated treatment. Mild pain on the sides of the injections is rare. And minor swelling or numbness of the scalp may occur. A very rare side effect would be to detect infection and reduce this risk by using a sterile method.
What is the cost of PRP?
The cost is around 2500 rupees per session. It depends upon the area of the bald patch.
Numerous studies around the world show that PRP treatment is one of the most effective non-invasive treatments for hair loss, thinning hair, and pattern baldness. It will increase the length of the hair growth phase, reduce hair loss, and bring back the reduction to a level that ultimately helps to improve skin coverage by promoting natural hair growth. After the first session, you will notice a decrease in hair loss. The effect of the treatment is evident after the third session as you will begin to notice significant hair growth.
Depending on the degree of hair loss and the degree of hair loss, your dermatologist will determine the number of PRP sessions you need; and duration of care if available; and the necessary treatment in the form of applicants for topical and oral medications, etc.
