What is PRP therapy?
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a patient’s own concentrated blood. This blood contains platelets about 3-5 times more than normal blood to speed up cellular regeneration and tissue repair. In addition, it also contains platelet derived growth factor (PDGF), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), transforming growth factor (TGF) and other bioactive proteins which are essential in wound healing and promoting hair growth. Plasma is important for cell survival as it contains nutrients, vitamins, hormones, electrolytes and proteins. In PRP therapy, Plasma rich injections are injected on the targeted areas for desired results.
PRP therapy procedure for Hair Loss and Face Rejuvenation:
PRP therapy is a 3 step process. Generally PRP treatment takes around 20 minutes – 2 hours. It is a simple and safe procedure.
Before starting of PRP therapy, Dermatologist or Cosmetologist performs physical examination of patient. Sometimes Doctor also asks patient for blood test. Doctor discusses with patient about medical history, family history, diet, current medications, hair care regimen, recent surgeries and a detailed history of hair loss situation.
After the confirmation of patient’s healthy conditions, doctor takes patient’s blood from arm and put it into a centrifuge for approximately 10 minutes.
Then the blood is separated into three layers known as Platelet Poor Plasma, Platelet Rich Plasma and Red Blood Cells.
Finally, the Platelet Rich Plasma is drawn up into a syringe and injected on the scalp areas for hair growth and on the face areas for skin rejuvenation.
After the PRP therapy, Doctor closely monitors patient’s conditions for efficacy and safety.
