PRP hair restoration or hair regrowth may be beneficial for individuals experiencing certain types of hair loss or hair thinning. However, its effectiveness can vary depending on the underlying causes of hair loss and the individual's specific circumstances. Keep reading to learn more about how PRP hair restoration works.
What Is PRP Hair Restoration?
Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) hair restoration is a medical procedure that aims to promote hair growth and improve the overall health and appearance of the hair. It involves using the patient's blood to extract platelet-rich plasma, which is injected into the scalp.
How the Procedure Works
A small amount of the patient's blood is drawn, similar to a regular blood test. The blood is then processed in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood components.
Extraction of PRP
The extracted platelet-rich plasma is rich in growth factors and proteins that play a role in tissue repair and regeneration. These growth factors are believed to stimulate hair follicles and encourage hair growth.
Once the PRP is prepared, it is injected into the patient's scalp in areas with thinning hair or areas where hair growth is desired. The injections are usually done using fine needles and are intended to stimulate dormant hair follicles and encourage them to grow new hair.
Recovery and Maintenance
There is usually little to no downtime after the procedure, and patients can resume their regular activities shortly afterward. However, multiple sessions are often recommended to achieve optimal results. The frequency and number of sessions required can vary depending on the individual's condition and the clinic's recommendations.
It's important to note that PRP hair restoration has gained popularity and is considered a minimally invasive procedure. Its effectiveness can vary from person to person.
