Indications

There are majorly two issues with which people visit a hair specialist looking for PRP treatment.

  • To stop hair loss and preserve the hair that you currently have
  • To promote hair regrowth

 

While stoppage of hair loss can be very effectively tackled with medications as well, it is regrowth of hair without surgery for which PRP treatment is an effective tool.

The major causes of hair loss are:

  • Heredity, which is seen as male pattern or female pattern baldness. This happens gradually and in predictable patterns in most cases. While males tend to have different patterns, female pattern baldness generally starts from the crown of the scalp
  • Telogen effluvium, which is a temporary form of hair loss that usually happens after a shock or a stressful/traumatic event.
  • Hormonal changes and medical conditions, which could occur due to pregnancy, menopause or thyroid issues
  • Some medications and supplements could have hair loss as a side effect
  • Traction alopecia is often caused by excessive hairstyling etc. which pulls the hair. Certain unscientific treatments at salons could also lead to hair fall

How it works

Platelet rich plasma therapy involves the use of platelets and growth factors from your own blood to help hair follicles that are inactive to move back into the growth phase. Unlike a hair transplant, there is no addition of follicles in the target area, only reactivation.

PRP treatment is therefore not ideal for:

  • Late stage baldness
  • Complete baldness

It works best on:

  • Early stages of hair thinning in both men and women
  • Works on hereditary as well as traction alopecia as long as they are not late stage

 

PRP is not a substitute for hair transplantation. It is ideal for hair regrowth in cases where people haven’t reached a stage where they necessarily need a hair transplant.

It works for both men and women. However, a single session will not provide desired results. You will need multiple sessions.

You can read more about the effectiveness of PRP treatment for hair loss in this scientific paper published in IJDVL

Procedure

The duration of a PRP treatment session can be anywhere between 60-90 minutes, including the time for the centrifuge machine.

 

After your consultation, in case PRP is decided as the ideal treatment for your hair regrowth journey, the procedure is undertaken. It may be a regular PRP or with added growth factors. The procedure does not change for you in either case, but the cost does. Growth additives will cost more.

 

The steps in the treatment are:

  • 10-15 ml of your blood is drawn with a syringe
  • The blood is centrifuged in a machine to help isolate the platelets, plasma and growth factors while you wait.
  •  Numbing cream is applied on the areas that will be injected so that you do not feel the pain.
  • The centrifuge process may take up to 25 minutes. After this the required components are filled into a narrow gauge syringe.
  • The target areas are injected.
  • You can then collect the after care instructions and be on your way home. You will be asked to repeat the treatment at the discussed frequency, usually after a gap of 4 weeks for the first 4-5 sessions.

 

 
 

Results begin to show after 2-3 months.

 

The after care for the procedure involves:

  • Do not apply minoxidil for the next two days
  • Do not shampoo your hair on the day of the treatment
  • In case of pain at the injection site, take a regular anti-inflammatory like paracetamol.

Comparison to hair transplant

The most drastic change in regaining lost hair is possible with a hair transplant surgery. In this method, Hair follicles from other areas (mostly other parts of the scalp) are transplanted into areas where hair has been lost.

PRP treatment is not a substitute for this. It will not help you in case you have lost the hair follicles. It will only reactivate dormant follicles for growth.

Hence, transplant is an option for late stages of hair loss whereas PRP treatment is an effective option for early stages.

Platelet rich plasma therapy is not a surgery and hence avoids all the complications associated with it.

Risk and side effects

The risks associated with PRP treatment are minimal. There are various studies that have shown the safety and efficacy of the treatment though studies are still going on. It has been used as a regenerative tool for joint injuries well before the cosmetic use for hair regrowth. The possible risks are those which are associated with any injection and include:

  • infection at the injection site
  • scalp injury
  • formation of scar tissue

These are easily avoidable in the hands of a well trained specialist which we guarantee you of at SkinGenious. In case they do occur, they are easily manageable.

What to expect

It is important for you to have realistic expectations when you are going in for any cosmetic treatment.

 

PRP treatment will not be helpful for you in case you are facing late stages of hair loss. Our providers will ask you to go ahead only if they expect you to get results.

 

Results will start visibly showing after 2 sessions of the PRP treatment. It will help you preserve existing hair as well as help in the activation of dormant follicles, appearing as regrowth of hair.

 

You will have to repeat the procedure multiple times. For the first four months, you generally require to get PRP done once every month. After that you may be suggested 2 maintenance sessions every year.

Preparing for treatment

The primary factor that helps you in this treatment is the platelets that are present in your own blood. In case you have a low platelet count, the results may not be the best.

  • You may be asked to get a platelet count done to ensure that you are an ideal candidate.
  • May be advised against the treatment if you have a history of scarring or keloid formation.
  • Not suggested if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
