Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is indicated for hair disorders (like diffuse hair loss, androgenic alopecia, alopecia areata), atrophic skin, vitiligo treatment, skin tightening, improving skin tone and texture etc.
PRP is an injectable treatment by which the patient’s own blood is used. Platelets are vital in the process of tissue healing, and the growth of new cells. PRP thereby promotes collagen production, regenerates the skin tissue, and essentially re-energizes your cells into rejuvenating themselves. The release of growth factors amphiphiles the healing process.
In hair disorders, PRP works on the basis of restoring growth factors within the blood. Human blood contains mesenchymal stem cells and autologous blood products. These elements are essential to regenerate scalp tissue. Once the scalp tissue is regenerated, the hair follicles are able to produce the necessary hair growth.
PRP is a painless procedure, with no downtime. It needs to be repeated every fortnight for 2 months and then monthly for 4 months. This ensures that the hair follicles remain stimulated and that the hair growth is progressing as it should be.
