PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy
Platelets, also called thrombocytes, are blood cells that help blood clotting. They contain growth factors called TGF (Transforming Growth Factor). Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a process where the patient’s blood is drawn, separated via centrifugation and re-injected into desired areas of the body. PRP is a recent and popular treatment, just like hair mesotherapy that helps hair loss and restoration.
The procedure takes places within 30 minutes or so. As the plasma is obtained from the patient’s own body and processed within a closed system, there’s no risk of disease transmission or complications such as allergies.
The purpose here is the obtain platelets 3-4 more times concentrated in density than they are regularly found in human blood and inject them in the desired area. As platelets aide in clotting when there’s an injury at the body, they also leave growth factors and various other healing elements at the place of injury. In other words, they help reconstruct the damaged dissue and stimulate healing.
This is the reason for using Platelet Rich Plasma as a hair treatment: they help vitalize and stimulate the invigoration and thickening of hair stems with the help of growth factors that help restore damaged tissue.
When used in conjunction with hair transplantation, it helps enhance follicle viability, stimulate healing and hair regeneration following the operation.
