What is PRP Therapy?

What is PRP?

PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma treatment that works best for the people who are suffering from hair thinning. However, those who are suffering from complete hair loss this treatment is not the right solution for them. The growth hormones that contain active ingredients are collected from the patient’s own body and then injected into the scalp. Hair growth is naturally stimulated due to the growth factors in your blood cells such as elastin and collagen fibres that stimulate hair follicles to encourage growth. In a standard 6 to 8 sessions of PRP treatment a patient can see the best result.

Who is eligible for PRP?

Research suggests that PRP injections are suitable for younger patients who are in the early stages of the disease. As PRP therapy is safe and natural there is no chance of getting blood infection. The best candidate for PRP treatment is for the patient who is suffering from hair thinning. Each of the locations in Bringham has at least one certified PRP consultant that can answer these questions more specifically related to the patient’s medical condition and that whether PRP treatment is suitable for him or her. One can plan a schedule with an expert physician or with a consultant to know more about the suitability.

What is the procedure of PRP therapy?

As similar to routine blood testing, a small sample of blood is drawn from the patient’s body. The sample then processed in a cleared device to separate plasma and platelets from other components of blood such as red blood cells. The blood is treated in a centrifuge so that only platelets (PRP) or enriched cells remain. Anaesthesia is given to the nerves so that the patient does not feel pain. These highly concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma including important growth proteins are then injected into the scalp by using a special micro needle. One can use PRP treatment alone or combined it with hair restoration or hair transplant.

The risk factor

In the PRP treatment there are few risk associated with the procedure that rarely occur. These include:

  • Temporary bruising or swelling in the treated area
  • Temporary worsening of hair loss
  • Mild discomfort headache after the treatment
  • Possibility of area getting infected (very rare)

Who should not go for PRP?

  • Platelet dysfunction syndromes

  • Hypofibrinogenaemia
  • Acute and chronic infections
  • Sepsis

Can someone do other treatment simultaneously?

Those who are not eligible for surgery or want to delay their hair restoration surgery can undergo PRP therapy with other non-surgical procedures. One can use PRP treatment along with DHT blockers and Minoxidil.

The Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is suitable for men that can stimulate hair follicles to grow. It is an ideal therapy for men who are experiencing male pattern baldness. The procedure is also used to treat androgenic alopecia.

PRP therapy for women

PRP is multiple Injections therapy which takes approximately 60 to 90 minutes. This gives safe and reliable result with no side effects. So this therapy will be a best option for women.PRP is rich in growth factor that contributes to hair growth when applied to the scalp. The treatment is suitable for women who are experiencing hair thinning. The procedure is safe and is long used by orthopaedists to promote healing and growth of tendons.

Before and after the therapy

Prior to the procedure, the patients should avoid taking anti-inflammatory medications for seven days and three days after the procedure. These anti-inflammatory medications include aspirin, naproxen, and ibuprofen. However, cardiac patients should continue taking aspirin.
