Plasma is the part of your blood that is responsible for carrying proteins and hormones and delivering them to the cells in your body that need them. We supercharge this process by extracting plasma platelets from your blood and injecting them in your scalp. This can stimulate natural hair growth and strengthen existing hair follicles.
Treatment consist of three steps:
Since your body recognizes the injected plasma as its own, the risk of an adverse reaction is low. PRP was first developed in the late 1970s and has been continually in use then, first in surgical procedures, and later in sports medicine. Its versatile applications and revitalizing effects have been well studied. It is now a common strategy in cosmetic treatments.
Your PRP hair rejuvenation treatment will start with a consultation with Dr. John Laura who will determine whether you are an ideal candidate for this procedure or not. You will be advised against the use of vitamins, blood thinners, and certain medications for at least two weeks prior to the treatment. Dr. John Laura also advises against smoking or the consumption of alcohol at least three days before the procedure. These are precautionary measures to avoid possible side effects from the procedure.
The PRP hair rejuvenation treatment begins with some blood drawn from you, transferred to a tube, and placed in a centrifuge. Dr. John Laura will mark the area on your scalp where hair needs to be restored. The marked area on your head is cleaned using a disinfectant and numbed using local anesthesia. The plasma, which is rich in platelet is drawn into a syringe and injected into your scalp and the site is cleaned thoroughly again.
After the treatment, you will be advised to stop taking vitamins, blood thinners and other contraindicated medicines for three to seven days. The PRP hair rejuvenation treatment is a non-surgical treatment that takes just a few minutes of your time. You may experience some tenderness, a feeling of tightness and minimal pain in the area of the injection, but the result of this treatment is worth the applaud as it helps regrow and thicken existing hair follicles with no downtime and minimal discomfort.
Patients with male pattern baldness or a receding hairline and women with alopecia issues can consider PRP hair restoration as a viable alternative to surgical hair transplants in moderate cases. While each patient is different, on average most will need 3 to 4 treatments over the course of 4 to 6 weeks. New hair has a growth cycle of around 3 months. So results will be most noticeable after several growth cycles or around 6 to 12 months.
A hair loss treatment that works for your friend may not work for you. Everyone is born differently and your reason for baldness may be different from others. Several reasons cause baldness such as:
Apart from the causes mentioned above, your age, family history, your present health condition, and treatments taken can pose a threat and increase your risk of losing hair. Your treatment differs based on your general health, the health of your scalp, and the extent of hair loss.
