What is PRP therapy?
PRP(platelet-rich plasma) Therapy is used for treating hair loss and hair thinning, which encourages new hair growth. This treatment involves withdrawing the patient’s blood and processing it where only the essential cells (platelet-rich plasma) are taken and injected into the scalp.
PRP is a safe and natural procedure, which concentrates the enriched cells from the blood and stimulates the growth of hair follicles, where hair loss or hair thinning is present.
PRP Therapy Procedure:
Before the procedure takes place the blood is first drawn at the doctor’s office, which is just like a regular blood test. After which, the blood is then spun rapidly in a centrifuge (a machine that rapidly rotates and separates fluids of different densities from the blood) this results in the rich platelets being separated from the blood. The platelets are concentrated to 3X the normal blood value.
There is literally no pain felt during the process. Topical anaesthesia is given during the procedure to ensure that the patient does not feel any discomfort or pain. If required, the procedure can also be carried out under intravenous sleep sedation or general anaesthesia, so the patient is asleep during the procedure.
The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is then injected into the scalp by using a special microneedle.
