Dealing with the issue of hair loss is very difficult. Waking up every morning and seeing lumps of hair on the pillow is not the best way to start the day. Both men and women want their hair should be strong and thick so that they can have a good hair day.
But, many people face the problem of thin hair. They even try various at-home treatment, medications, shampoo, conditioner, and topical treatment to prevent hair loss. None of these methods help them.
Does the treatment actually trigger hair growth?
Many patients get confused about the treatment and they think it is a facial treatment. But, the PRP method actually helps the hair to grow. This is because our blood contains plasma which is full of protein and it helps to increase the hair growth. Injecting the blood plasma into the scalp will help make the hair follicles to grow again.
In case, you are thinking of getting the treatment or want to know more about the procedure then you can contact our doctor for PRP therapy in Visakhapatnam.
How does the procedure of PRP actually work?
PRP procedure contains three steps. Additionally, the treatment needs three sessions which are either 4 or 6 weeks apart. One session takes one hour and the patient can go home after that.
- Firstly the blood sample will be taken from the arm. After that, it will be put into the centrifuge and it helps in separating the fluid into various densities as the machine is continuously spinning.
- After ten minutes, the blood gets into three different layers platelet-poor plasma, platelet-rich plasma, and red blood cells.
- The PRP is then drawn and injected into the scalp where hair growth is very less.
No doubt, this process is still in the research and its effectiveness is on research.
What actually are platelets?
Our blood has red blood cells, platelets, and white blood cells. Platelets are small fragments of the cell which are in the plasma to help heal the wound and prevent clot.
Does the injection directly help in treating hair loss?
The hair follicles can shrink because of problems like traction alopecia, pattern hair loss, and androgenetic alopecia. Facing these problems mean the hair will become thin and after a while will not grow. When the platelet injection is injected into the scalp the hair follicles get larger and also become healthy. This means if the hair follicle is strong the hair loss issue will be reversed. Many patients who got the treatment noticed that their hair got thick and healthy.
Can everybody get this treatment?
If the problem of hair fall just started then it definitely the patient will get the benefit. If the problem is severe then getting different sessions will help to see improvement.
