How Does Platelet Rich Plasma – PRP Therapy for Hair Loss Work?
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a newer technique which is used for skin rejuvenation, hair loss treatment and joint pains, wound healing and ligament tears.
Hair loss is very common in females as well as males. It can be a result of stress, hormonal imbalance or genetic factors.
PRP Treatment for Hair Loss with or without Microneedling
PRP Treatment works by breakdown of platelets cells from patient’s own blood causing release of collagen activating factors. As a result of which you can see the formation of new healthier skin with lots of support tissue as collagen and elastin. It also helps stimulate the growth activity of new hair follicles and improves the health of hair which are already present. Eventually it shows an increase in hair count and hair thickness.
At Blissful Me Medspa we offer PRP alone or in addition to microneedling which improves the outcome of the procedure. The combined therapy includes drawing patient’s own blood, processing it to get only enriched cells (platelet rich plasma) remain. The plasma, rich in platelets and activating factors is microneedled directly into the scalp at the level of hair follicles for hair loss treatment.
What Is the Process of PRP Treatment for Hair Loss?
During a PRP Hair loss treatment, a technician draws blood, generally from a patient’s arm. He/she will then spin the blood in a centrifuge to separate platelets and plasma. Plasma is a substance found in the blood that contains platelets, which improve hair growth. Though it seems painful, there aren’t any serious PRP hair treatment side effects to worry about.
After extraction of plasma, doctors administer injections containing plasma, into the scalp where hair loss has occurred. PRP Injections are typically administered monthly for three months, then the span spreads out over about three or four months for up to two years. The injection schedule is dependent upon your genetics, pattern and amount of hair loss, age, and hormones.
What Are the Risks involved in administering PRP Treatment?
Overall, PRP is a safe treatment option with zero risks of allergic reaction because it is your own blood. Still, whenever a needle is placed in the body, there are some of the risks including:
- Nerve injuries
- Pain at the injection site
- Tissue damage
These risks are very rare and do not happen often. You can consult your doctor to discuss these potential risks.
