Our blood is made up of red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and
plasma. Plasma, is the component of the blood in which all the blood cells are
suspended and carried to different parts of the body. Platelets are the cells
responsible for maintaining hemostasis, i.e., they control the bleeding by
forming a clot and repairing the damage.
Platelets are a reservoir of various growth factors that stimulate tissue recovery and healing by increasing blood flow and cytokines. These growth factors are also responsible for stimulating and enhancing hair follicle function.
PRP is a part of blood rich in platelets and devoid of
red blood cells and white blood cells.
PRP contains platelet concentration that is 4-5 times the normal concentration. Since the platelets are a reservoir of essential growth factors, PRP is typically a concentrated solution of growth factors which can stimulate the hair follicle cells and promote hair growth.
PRP is rich in various growth factors, namely vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), Platelet derived growth factor (PDGF), Fibroblast growth factor (FGF), and Insulin like growth factor (IGF). These molecules bring about the following effects -
These physiological effects help in reducing hair fall, increasing the thickness of the hair and promoting hair growth.
Anyone with excessive hair fall, hair thinning or reduced hair density can undergo PRP treatment. It is especially very useful in cases of patterned hair loss, both in males and females.
Approximately 8 ml of your blood sample is withdrawn in a vial. It is placed in
a centrifugation machine. This is machine that spins around very quickly,
causing the blood components to separate. The separation process takes
around 15 minutes.
The PRP is separated into a syringe and is used for the therapy.
Typically, 4 ml - 5 ml of injectable PRP is considered as the optimum volume for injecting into the scalp.
The PRP Procedure
PRP therapy is a quick procedure taking just 30-40 minutes.
There is no downtime after a PRP procedure. You can get back to your routine activities immediately after the procedure.
On an average, 6-8 sessions done 1-1.5 months apart are sufficient to give desired results.
PRP is virtually an “organic” treatment as your own blood is being processed
and injected back into your body. So there are no chances of any adverse
However, one may experience mild temporary effects due the injections per se, which may include slight tenderness and soreness, minimal pain, and pinpoint bleeding in the areas where injections were delivered. You may also experience a feeling of ‘tightness’ on your scalp for a day after the procedure. A few patients also complain of a headache for a day post the procedure.
The advantages of PRP therapy for hair include:
A full round of PRP hair therapy (which can consist of 6-8 sessions) can make your hair thick, increase hair growth, and arrest hair loss for sometime. The results can be enhanced and maintained by regular use of anti hair loss serums provided by the doctor.
