A Brief Guide to PRP Treatment for Hair Loss

PRP treatment for hair loss is a very scientific and biological treatment. It’s also a solution to a problem that has been reported to cause depression among both males and females. Hair is a major contributor to person’s overall appearance, any damage to that means damage to your whole appearance. The worst fear in cosmetic world – hair loss – has been conquered with this sophisticated treatment.

PRP therapy at a medical spa takes a person’s own blood and processes it so that only platelet rich cells remain. Then the dermatologist at the med spa is required to inject this processed platelet rich blood in your scalp. The proteins in the platelet rich plasma help stimulate your hair growth.


On Whom Does PRP Treatment Work the Best?

It’s a question often raised because it confuses people. Hair loss is biologically associated with aging and people ask if PRP treatment involves blood, needles and syringes is it appropriate for the elderly or not. The answer is that PRP treatment is such a meticulous procedure that it does not have any side effects whatsoever. 

The doctors however say that the younger the candidate, the better the results of PRP treatment. After all, hair loss can happen to anyone at any age due to various reasons. Generally, any person experiencing hair loss at any age is an ideal candidate for the PRP treatment.


When Do the Results Begin to Show?

Consistency is the key here. The injecting of platelet rich blood into scalp at the level of hair follicles every half inch over the thinning area has to be repeated every month for 3 to 4 months. After that depending on the progress a person is making, the process has to be repeated after every 3 to 6 months.

The first signs of success or hair growth can be witnessed after 2 or 3 months. According to a professional, following are the signs of success:

  • Reduced rate of hair fall
  • Early growth of new hair
  • Increased length of hair


Is PRP Treatment Safe?

  • There are no chances of any rejection of platelets by your body cells or some kind of allergic reaction. This is because PRP treatment extracts, processes, and injects your own blood into your scalp. 
  • PRP treatment does not require any surgery, so it’s not to be dreaded. There is some needle work involved, but that only causes minor discomfort.
  • PRP therapy does not require any prep time or recovery time. You can drive back home, do routine work and continue with your life once the treatment has been completed. 

PRP treatment for hair loss is a remarkable option to get your hair back in shape.  A number of scientific researches and papers have talked about its efficacy and terrific results which include increase in hair count and improvement in hair thickness.

According to Neil Saddick, a dermatologist in New York City, PRP treatment has gained popularity in the last five years, and due to scientific reasons that support this treatment, it has a long way to go.
