Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)


WHAT IS PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma is a technique that stimulates growth and recovery in cellular activity to promote proliferation, through injecting concentrated amounts of growth factors. Growth factors are extracellular signaling proteins that bind to cells to activate a cascade of cellular mechanisms that encourage proliferation and survival.
Because plasma is a reservoir of growth factors, most of which are essential in hair growth such as the VE growth factors, the effects of the treatment are dramatic on hair growth of various underlying causes.
Candidates for PRP

PRP Treatment is typically considered a safe procedure that is non-invasive with almost no downsides. However, patients should do the diligence and take consent from a doctor to have their medical history evaluated.

PRP Treatment procedure
Platelet-rich plasma is obtained from the patient’s blood to eliminate an defensive attack from the immune system. To acquire the reservoir of growth factors, one tube’s worth of blood is drawn from the patient the standard way.

The extracted blood is centrifuged to separate platelet-rich plasma from the remaining blood content. PRP is later isolated and injected into the scalp of the patient.

Side effects are minimal, but itching may occur. PRP sessions are typically an hour long, and performed once per month. Anywhere between one to eight sessions may be needed Patients may need anywhere between one to eight sessions per year. The treatment should be repeated annually to preserve growth if the underlying cause is not treated. Otherwise, such as the case with dietary related hair loss or styling related hair loss, if PRP is coupled with lifestyle changes, growth will presume and it won’t be necessary for the patient to annually repeat treatment.

PRP as a supplementary treatment to hair transplants

Growth factors provide cellular support for grafts after hair transplants to increase their survival and create a healthy foundation on which follicular units can develop safely.
