Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment in India
An option to accelerate hair growth
Our body and its fluids are potent growth accelerators and healers. Our blood has enough growth proteins, for instance, to ensure a solution for hair loss and balding. Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is the serum which is extracted from our blood and used for treatment.
PRP is not a new treatment. It has been used for long to treat sports injury since PRP has the ability to heal faster. PRP can be a treatment on its own or it can also be used along with hair transplant to ensure excellent hair growth. The process starts with the extraction of a blood sample. This sample is then put into the centrifuge where it is spun at a very high speed. During the process blood disintegrates into the individual components that make it up, the plasma is one of the components.
Treatment using PRP is effective both in men and women. Standalone PRP treatment is usually for thinning hair or hair loss where hair transplants are usually advised for balding. Many patients realize the rapid hair fall they are experiencing and opt for early treatment to save the remaining hair. This is where the plasma rich platelets are injected into the scalp. This promotes the growth of the follicles that are dormant and also helps in accelerating and accentuating hair growth.
When the PRP is injected during a hair transplant surgery, it is along with the grafts which are transplanted. The process of FUE begins with donor hair follicles being extracted from the donor site. These follicles are transplanted into the recipient site where the surgeon makes incisions into which the grafts are inserted. This is the point in time when along with the grafts that are transplanted, PRP is also injected in. The consequent growth at six months with PRP is comparatively more than with transplants without PRP. In fact, many leading hair specialists nowadays advise PRP and practice injecting PRP routinely along with the transplants.
