What Is PRP Hair Treatment?

PRP hair treatment, plasma-rich hair treatment, or blood plasma hair treatment are other names for this revolutionary method that employs the body’s natural healing capacities of inducing hair growth. This pioneering procedure entails extracting a small amount of your blood, concentrating the platelets through processing it, after which this platelet-rich plasma is directly injected into your scalp. The growth factors in the liquid begin repairing and rejuvenating your follicles leading to stronger, fuller strands.

How Does PRP Hair Treatment Work?

The process starts with a simple blood draw like any other regular medical test. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge which spins rapidly to separate platelets from other components. These platelets are full of vital growth factors for wound healing and tissue regeneration. After preparing the platelet-rich plasma, it is injected into specific areas of the scalp.

The Science Behind PRP Hair Treatment:

Platelets are tiny cells found in blood that contain numerous healing elements like proteins and growth factors. When these elements are introduced into the scalps using injections, they encourage entering the growth phase by dormant follicles resulting in higher density as well as thickness of hair. Hence, this technique can effectively fight against the thinning of hair and pattern baldness while offering permanent yet natural resolution against alopecia.

Benefits of PRP Hair Treatment:

Choosing PRP hair treatment at Eliixir Skin and Hair Clinic has several benefits:

  • Non-Surgical Solution: Unlike hair transplantation, plasma therapy for hair loss is less invasive and does not involve surgery.
  • Natural Results: Since this procedure uses your blood, there are minimal chances for allergic reactions or complications.
  • Quick Recovery: You can return to your normal activities soon; since there isn’t much downtime associated with this procedure.
  • Works on Different Conditions: Different forms of hair loss and thinning can be treated by PRP therapy, which means it is versatile.

Who can benefit from blood plasma hair treatment?

Anyone facing hair loss problems without regard for gender can opt for PRP hair loss treatment. They may be facing hair loss or thinning due to genetic predisposition, hormonal imbalances, stress, or any medical condition like alopecia. Hair PRP can work in the early stages of hair loss; if you notice minor hair fall; consult Dr. Shikhar Chaube at Eliixir Skin and Hair Clinic. During your consultation, he will assess whether you need PRP hair treatment or not.

The Treatment Process for plasma replacement therapy for hair: 

In the Beginning:

The first thing you need to do is to have a detailed conversation with Dr. Shikhar Chaube. He shall go through your past medical records, examine your scalp and hair, and talk about what you want. This is a vital part of ensuring that PRP hair treatment is appropriate for you.

The Day of the Treatment:

Your arm will be pricked to take a small amount of blood during this particular day. The blood will be centrifuged to separate platelet-rich plasma from it. This PRP can then be injected into your head using tiny needles which are meant for some areas without hair or very thin ones on them. It takes 60-90 minutes for the whole process.

What Should Be Done After?

Within several hours of the end of therapy, mild reddening or swelling may occur at the injection sites but generally goes away within a few hours after completing this procedure. Dr. Chaube will give you exact information on how you should behave following the treatment to avoid spoiling everything. You may return home right away.

Results Expected And Subsequent Appointments:

Hair growth usually occurs over time and it takes several months before results of PRP hair treatment become evident. Many patients need multiple treatments spaced apart by weeks between them to increase effectiveness. Undergoing maintenance sessions every six months up to one year can help perpetuate these results over time.

The patients frequently report that they notice new hair growth and thickening of existing hair within a few months. PRP hair treatment fosters fresh growth as well as strengthens the current hair making it look fuller and healthier.

PRP Hair Treatment versus Other Hair Restoration Methods:

Hair Transplantation:

Despite its high effectiveness in restoring hair, hair transplantation is a surgical procedure where follicles are removed from one part of the scalp and implanted into thinning areas. On the other hand, PRP hair treatment is non-surgical and aims at stimulating existing hair follicles.

Eyebrow Transplant:

An eyebrow transplant is an option for people who want to enhance their eyebrows. Similar to hair transplantation, this method involves planting follicles into an area meant for eyebrows. Furthermore, PRP therapy can assist with eyebrow transplants by improving the growth and density of the transplanted hairs.

Combining PRP with Other Treatments:

At Eliixir Skin and Hair Clinic, we often combine PRP Hair Treatment with other therapies for better results. This may include topical ointment creams or gels, oral medications like minoxidil pill form or corticosteroids taken orally, Laser Therapy, etc. Dr. Shikhar Chaube will design a customized treatment plan for your specific needs and goals.
