PRP treatment for hair

PRP treatment for hair offers an alternative to traditional oral medications for hair loss, without the potential side effects on sexual function. This treatment is both safe and effective in preventing and treating hair loss.

The procedure involves extracting growth factors from your own blood, which are then injected into the scalp. These growth factors stimulate hair regrowth, resulting in a high success rate. Non-surgical PRP treatment for hair is particularly beneficial for individuals with thinning hair or those experiencing hair loss who prefer to avoid surgical hair transplant procedures.

What is platelet rich plasma 

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a substance derived from your own blood that contains a concentration of platelets. Platelets are rich in growth factors and play a crucial role in the body's natural healing process. PRP can also used to promote tissue repair, stimulate collagen production, and enhance the healing of various conditions.

The process typically involves drawing a small amount of blood from the patient, which is then processed to separate the platelets from other blood components. The concentrated platelets are then reintroduced into the target area, such as the skin or scalp.PRP has been utilized in various fields, including dermatology, orthopedics, and hair restoration, for its regenerative properties.

PRP for hair how does it work ? 

Studies reveal that PRP houses potent growth factors, such as PDGF and VEGF, recognized for their role in tissue regeneration. The PRP extraction process entails centrifugation, isolating plasma with heightened platelet concentration.

Injected into the scalp, PRP initiates the anagen (growth) phase by stimulating dormant hair follicles, as indicated by research. Additionally, it improves blood circulation in the scalp, ensuring essential nutrient delivery.

 

Clinical trials report significant enhancements in hair density and thickness, with multiple sessions recommended for optimal results. Noteworthy for minimal invasiveness, PRP therapy, using the patient's blood, boasts a low-risk profile according to research.

A significant reduction in hair loss cytokines between first and fourth injection. Hair count increased 20-30% on average. The hair pull test [the test for hair loss] decreases by 90%.

 

In the split head research, ten patients with male androgenetic alopecia who were not on any other medication for the previous 12 months were selected. The evaluation was randomized, blinded, with a placebo half-head group, and evaluated by TrichoScan. After three months, a mean increase of 27.7 hairs/cm2 was found in the treated areas compared with a decrease of three hairs/cm2 in the non-treated area. Also, terminal hair density improved by 27 ± 15.3 in the treated areas but decreased by 2.1 ± 12.4 in the control area of the scalp

The final conclusion of the author of this review was that PRP showed great promise as an effective and risk-free treatment for some of the more common forms of hair-loss.

Prepare yourself for the treatment 
  1. Ensure proper hydration by drinking an adequate amount of water on the day before your treatment.

  2. Choose to consume non-oily, nutritious foods on the day of your treatment to enhance the quality of the obtained plasma.

  3. Feel free to color your hair up to 7 days before the treatment without any concerns.

  4. Shampoo your hair on the morning of the treatment day to maintain cleanliness and readiness for the procedure.

These simple steps contribute to a smooth and comfortable experience during your treatment.

Treatment steps

First, about 40-50 ml of your blood is drawn and placed into a centrifuge, a machine that rapidly spins to separate fluids of different densities. We use a high-standard centrifuge with stable spinning and temperature, similar to those used in stem cell laboratories. The entire blood draw and preparation process takes about 15 minutes.

Finally, the platelet-rich plasma is injected into the areas of the scalp being treated using a Meso-gun, with ice compression to reduce any discomfort.

After care 

  • After receiving pre-treatment for hair loss, it is essential to follow these aftercare instructions:

  • Avoid Sun Exposure: Steer clear of direct sunlight for at least 24 hours post-treatment to prevent irritation or damage.

  • Gentle Hair Care: Treat your hair and scalp gently in the days following the procedure. Avoid vigorous brushing or excessive heat styling.

  • Minimize Physical Activity: Refrain from intense physical activities, particularly those that may cause excessive sweating, for at least 24 hours.

  • Hydration: Drink plenty of water to stay well-hydrated, promoting overall health and aiding in the healing process.

  • Avoid Chemicals: Refrain from using harsh chemicals on your hair or scalp for a few days.

This treatment synergizes with.

Hair loss is a multifactorial issue, often influenced by genetic predisposition and intensified by additional factors such as malnutrition, stress, and hormonal changes. Imagine a scenario where a rapid weight loss of 10 kg in one month occurs; it significantly increases the likelihood of experiencing more hair loss than usual. Hair, as an organ attached to our body, is intricately linked to our overall health. Therefore, addressing hair loss requires more than just localized treatments on the scalp.

To effectively combat hair loss, it is crucial to intervene as early as possible with a multimodal treatment approach. Various options for hair loss treatment are available, allowing you to create a customized treatment combination that suits your needs such as. 

  • Topical minoxidil is a time-proven treatment for hair loss. An important message before starting this treatment is that if it works for you, it's advisable to continue it in the long term. Stopping the use of this medication could potentially lead to withdrawal of hair loss.

  • Oral finasteride is the standard treatment for hair loss. However, the issue is that many men prefer to avoid this medicine due to the potential for developing side effects related to sexual function, especially among individuals who may already be prone to impotence or are elderly.

  • Low-level laser therapy for hair loss, given that the optimal treatment involves three sessions per week, may be more practical for home use settings.

  • Supplement : A generally recommended supplement for hair loss is a multivitamin and mineral formula that is high in zinc and biotin. This is my preferred choice as an adjunctive treatment since there are usually no side effects (if you choose a good one). It simultaneously improves internal health and hair health without causing side effects or withdrawal-related hair loss.

Improving your overall health can have a positive effect on your hair loss treatment. Just like a little tree on our body, hair relies on a healthy 'soil.' If the soil is good, the tree thrives; if the soil is not optimal, the tree may suffer. Similarly, fostering internal well-being can contribute to healthier hair.

How often should I do PRP treatment for hair loss ? 

It depends on the severity of your condition. For a mild case, simply for proactive health, you can undergo treatment 3-4 times per year. For hair loss problems, we recommend once a month for the initial phase (4 times) and 3-4 times per year for the maintenance phase.

What happens if I stop the treatment?

PRP treatment is used to stimulate hair growth, and its effects may gradually diminish once the sessions are stopped. Unlike medications, PRP typically doesn't have a withdrawal hair loss effect. Individual responses vary, and maintenance sessions may be recommended for sustained results.

PRP treatment for hair loss when can I see the result ? 

Generally, you will observe less hair loss in the first month, but the growth of new hair takes time and depends on the severity. Typically, it may take from 6 months to 1 year to see noticeable results.

Will I get benefit from just a single treatment ? 

Think of a single PRP treatment for your hair like applying fertilizer. You'll experience positive effects on hair health, but for better results, a series of sessions is recommended. The more sessions, the better the outcome.
