PRP treatment: successful treatment for Hair fall problem.


Since the 1970s, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy has grown in popularity, with current applications spanning a wide range of specialties, from orthodontics and orthopedics to cosmetics, among others. The regenerative technique uses a high concentration of a patient’s own blood platelets to stimulate healing in damaged tissue, rejuvenate skin, regrow hair, and more.

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is concentrated blood plasma that contains approximately 3 to 5 times the number of platelets found in normal circulating blood. In addition, it contains platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), transforming growth factor (TGF) and other bioactive proteins that aid in wound healing and possibly hair growth. 

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) therapy is an advanced, non-surgical, therapeutic procedure to treat hair loss conditions amongst patients with requirements of hair growth stimulation. The medical community through recent scientific research and technology found new understandings of wound and tissue healing. Through these scientific studies, we define PRP is an all-natural autologous (derived from the patient’s own blood) medical procedure performed in physicians’ offices for scalp, skin, and hair stimulation.

 Simultaneously, literature on the success of PRP is being published through multiple studies and research. The hair restoration community though still remains cautious about making claims for hair restoration using PRP, exclusively.

Benefits of PRP Therapy for hair.

The PRP procedure comes in more than one dose. It is a series of injections carried out over a period of weeks and redone over several months, so you will begin to see changes as you progress through the treatment. What you may notice are as follows:

✓Your hair may become thicker and denser in the problem areas being treating.
✓The appearance of balding and thinning spots may be reversed.
✓Your receding hairline may begin to grow back in.
✓Your self-confidence will increase gradually as those problem areas may seem to disappear.
✓The PRP injection promotes hair growth by stimulating the hair follicles and prevent further hair loss.
✓It helps in obtaining high-platelets enriched blood that is concentrated and injected into the affected areas contains growth factor maximum.

Though this may all sound too good to be true, you had better start believing it! The results have indicated that PRP therapy could, in fact, achieve everything it states. Let’s go over some of those cases to ease your worries.

Side effects of PRP

Because the PRP concentration is made from a patient’s own blood, there’s no risk of allergic reaction or transmission of a communicable disease in connection with the use of your own blood. Possible side effects include mild pain or tenderness at the injection site, swelling, temporary bleeding or injury to tissue.

What is the success rate of PRP treatment?

Consistency is the key to achieve great results when it comes to PRP treatment. Each sitting for the treatment is administered at a specific gap and is adjusted based on the response of the patient to the treatment. It is possible to observe results within the first two or three months of the treatment.

PRP is not to be seen as a standalone treatment method to overcome hair loss woes. When administered in conjunction with medicines and other topical treatments, it has shown to be successful among 70% patients, to whom it is administered.
