Hair loss is among the major causes of developing inferiorty complex in the people. To help you with it, along with several hair transplantation techniques we perform at the Dr. Saraswat’s Skin and Hair Clinics, we also help you to restore your hair.
The new kid in town – platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is for those suffering from hair loss, and seeking an alternative to hair transplant. Although, one must understand that hair transplant and PRP therapy are two different procedures. If you are facing hair fall to an extent of severe baldness, you should go for hair transplant; but if your hair fall is in initial stages, you may go for the PRP therapy.
While hair transplant is a permanent solution to your baldness, PRP can help reduce your hair loss. It is an effective non-surgical, totally-natural treatment, and most of the time, it gives positive results.
Platelets are the clotting cells of our blood having the potential of faster healing. Platelets release growth factors in the blood which augments the healing process. In this procedure, platelets are harvested from one’s own body. After treating the platelets with some other growth factors, they are reintroduced into the body, specifically the scalp area, leading to better quality of hair.
These special platelet cells promote healing, accelerate the rate and degree of tissue healing and regeneration, and respond to injury and formation of new cellular growth. Using PRP therapy in hair restoration helps in boosting the non-active or newly implanted hair follicles into an active growth phase, which would then lead to good hair growth.
PRP helps in natural healing. There will be no risk of any infection as plasma used is drawn from one’s own blood. There is no chance at all that the body will oppose the procedure.
