Hair loss is one of the most common and natural cosmetic troubles. Around 80% of the world’s population suffers from this problem at some stage in life. Both men and women undergo hair loss though the nature of the hair loss varies.
Hair transplants are an excellent choice for getting lost hair back. However, some people are not comfortable going under the knife and want to seek nonsurgical alternatives. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an excellent choice for such people. It works wonders for improving the hair condition and offers long lasting results. Let’s dig in a little more to better understand how PRP helps.
What is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma is plasma that is enriched with platelets. PRP is extracted with the help of centrifuging of the blood. It is known to have many growth factors which help in healing process as well as tissue regeneration.
How does it help hair restoration?
For improving the condition of the hair, the PRP is injected into the scalp in small amounts. This vitalizes the follicles and provides them with much needed nutrition that strengthens them.With more nutrition, the hair situation starts improving in some time. It is important that the area being treated is not completely bald since the treatment cannot be very effective in such a situation. It is ideal for areas where the hair are undergoing thinning.
The treatment session takes a few minutes and a person can get back to work soon after. Although there is not much pain, people that they are very sensitive to pain can completely numb it down with the application of topical anesthetics.
Downtime and side effects
Downtime is absent with PRP treatments. It is recommended that you rest. You can continue your daily routine without any disruption after a treatment session.
The side effects from the PRP session are mostly some swelling and redness in the treated region. These last for a short period of time and usually subside on their own. If you feel discomfort, you can use icepacks to soothe the scalp.
How many sessions are needed?
The treatment starts delivering its good results soon after it is done. However, in order to achieve the intended outcome, the PRP treatment needs to be repeated a few times. The number of sessions exactly needed can only be decided by your doctor after assessing your individual needs. Usually a two weeks gap is given between treatment sessions to allow recovery at the treatment site.
The results are fantastic as thinning areas of the scalp have strong presence of hair after the treatment. The results from the treatment can be maintained in the longer run provided that good maintenance work is done.
