2. HOW DOES PRP WORK?

The full form of PRP is, Platelet Rich Plasma.

Our blood is made up of red blood cells, white blood cells & platelets floating in a liquid called plasma. Platelets play an important physiological role in healing and are naturally extremely rich in growth factors and bioactive molecules.
PRP is concentrated plasma rich in platelets, growth factors and nutrients separated from the blood after the processing.

When concentrated platelets or PRP is injected into the scalp, the growth factors and nutrients stimulate hair growth. Hair follicles are signalled to re-enter the growth phase to re-grow thinning, weak hair.

  1. It increases Hair strength & thickness.
  2. Prevents hair shedding
  3. Promotes new hair growth

It is an extremely safe, effective and less invasive treatment option to reverse the effects of hair fall and to boosts hair growth.

3. HOW SAFE IS PRP HAIR TREATMENT?

PRP hair treatment is extremely safe as it is the patient’s own blood which is processed and injected into the scalp. This eliminates the risk of communicable diseases, allergy and adverse immune reaction.

Apart from the widespread use of PRP injections for hair treatment, it is also commonly used for:

  1. Skin Rejuvenation
  2. Treatment of injuries of the muscles, tendons and joints
  3. Joint pain in arthritis
  4. Post-surgical healing

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR PRP HAIR TREATMENT RESULTS TO APPEAR?

Since PRP stimulates a biological effect, results should not be expected immediately and are generally visible at 3-4 weeks, with continuous gradual improvement over 6-12 months. However, this varies from person to person.

HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS OF PRP HAIR TREATMENT LAST?
