PRP Hair Treatment
Contrary to popular belief, surgical hair restoration options are not your only choice. You can also opt for other, less invasive alternatives.
One of these alternatives is the PRP hair treatment. It is a non-surgical hair restoration treatment for various common causes of hair fall and hair loss. However, unlike surgical treatments, PRP is only good for curing and preventing early stages of hair loss.
Nevertheless, there are many benefits of undergoing PRP hair treatment. Not only will it slow down your hair loss problem, but it will also improve the quality, lushness, thickness, and texture of your hair.
What is PRP?
PRP is a non-surgical treatment which is used treat hair thinning, to arrest hair loss and promote hair growth. It takes place by injecting plasma into the scalp, with the objective of stimulating the follicles. The PRP is activated with growth factors to stimulate inactive or newly implanted hair follicles into an active growth phase. The regular use of PRP prolongs the Anagen phase of the hair growth cycle.
PRP basically helps hair growth by accelerating the healing process of hair follicles, helping them regenerate at a faster pace. The platelets in the PRP contain various growth factors,
like Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF), Transforming Growth Factor-Beta (TGF-Beta) and Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF).
Together, these three growth factors promote cell growth, repair, and regeneration in the affected regions, where hair loss is the most prominent.
So, what happens when PRP is injected into the scalp? It basically stimulates the dormant hair follicles and encourages them to enter the active growth phase. Thus, the inactive hair follicles start growing new hair.
Moreover, another side benefit of PRP is that it improves the circulation of blood and nutrients to the affected regions, which further promotes healthy hair growth.
The PRP hair treatment is highly flexible and can be used to treat various hair loss conditions, like androgenetic alopecia (the most common form of hair loss worldwide). The treatment is also effective for both men and women. As per surveys and reports, it has been shown to produce visible effects on hair density, thickness, and overall volume.
At the same time, however, it should be strictly noted that PRP hair treatments are only used to stimulate growth. They cannot reverse the effects of hair loss or restore a full head of hair. For severe hair fall patterns, it’s best to consider alternative restoration options.
But in any case, PRP is one of the best methods for dealing with the early stages of hair loss as it can slow down the pace of deterioration and improve the quality and lushness of the hair.
