Thinning hair and excess hair fall can be extremely stressful. Beautiful and luscious hairs add to your beauty. Whereas thin and meager hair can make us self-conscious and become an evident inconvenience. Our appearance and physical appeal are two essential factors that make us look and feel beautiful. This condition can be a result of various factors, including genetics, skin disorders, age, or any medical disorder. But every problem has a solution, and so does hair fall. Hair Loss PRP is a renowned skin treatment that fights excess hair fall and restores hair thickness and volume.
So what is PRP, and how is it the solution for hair fall and thinning hairs? PRP or platelet-rich plasma is a vital blood component that carries different proteins and regenerative cells essential for repairing tissue damage. Our blood carries the secret to damage repair for our tissues and cells. But we have to draw out this plasma from the blood to increase its effectiveness once it is injected into the problem area. This task is carried out through a centrifuge, a machine that separates blood components and plasma. PRP is then collected in a syringe and injected into the scalp to promote hair growth. Besides increasing the blood flow to the hair follicles, PRP has proteins that promote cell growth. Improved blood flow and cell growth also enhance the performance of cells and tissues of the skin and speed up their functionality.
How is PRP Separated From Blood, and Why Is it Effective?
The process of obtaining PRP involves a blood draw and a centrifuge. Blood is drawn from your arm to yield PRP, then spun down in a centrifuge (a machine that spins at high speeds to help separate blood components). After centrifuging, the plasma rises to the top, and the lower part of the plasma is the PRP. Sometimes, a second spin is performed to increase the platelet concentration of the plasma. The main aim is to segregate the platelet-rich plasma from the blood to ensure maximum growth.
This plasma is directly injected into the places with maximum hair fall. In the long run, this plasma induces hair growth due to the growth factors. Hair PRP reduces bald patches and treats thinning hair volume by making hair appear thicker and denser.
Best Candidates for PRP Injections for Hair Loss
Many people can receive PRP injections for several treatments, including joint and muscle injuries, post-surgery treatment, skin rejuvenation, etc. Because PRP is autologous and made from your blood, it’s safe to use for anyone and has a very low risk of adverse reactions. In short, anyone experiencing hair loss can safely try PRP injections.
But if you’re wondering who the best candidates are in the sense that it can have the best results, an ideal candidate to receive PRP injections to improve hair growth can be narrowed down to two types of patients: men who are suffering from male pattern baldness, and patients who have had hair transplants. Following are the ideal candidates eligible for this treatment:
Patients Experiencing Hair Loss Due to Male Pattern Baldness
Although common in both genders, genetic hair loss has a more standard association with males, so male pattern baldness is a prominent hair fall condition. While the effects of PRP injections are variable and different for every person, they sure can speed up hair growth and reduce hair fall visibly. Moreover, PRP for Hair Loss stimulates hair growth with the help of growth factors that can reduce the appearance of bald patches in males and females.
PRP injections can potentially help male pattern baldness based on what it can do for your hair growth and scalp. Because of male pattern baldness, your body produces the DHT hormone, which is responsible for suppressing hair growth factors and stunting the growth of the critical hair growth factors that promote healthy hair growth. The PRP injections introduce more platelets to the inactive areas of your scalp, which promotes healthy cell repair and cell growth. Through this, the blood flow in the area can improve hair growth through newer cells in the area.
Patients Who Have Had Hair Transplants
Suppose you’re planning to undergo hair transplant surgery. In that case, PRP injections can complement the effects of your hair treatment by helping with cell growth and tissue generation in the area, which can improve your therapy for hair loss by the way your scalp and hair follicles manage healthy hair growth.
After a successful hair transplant, your scalp should accept the donor hair follicles and use them as a means to reproduce similarly healthy hairs in the surrounding areas. Simply put, PRP injections can help this process by stimulating cell growth and regeneration, boosting the effects healthy donor follicles can have on your hair.
