PRP therapy is an exciting treatment option for hair loss. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a concentration of platelets and growth factors. Platelets are essential for wound healing, and growth factors stimulate tissue regeneration and cell proliferation. Injecting PRP into the scalp can promote hair growth by stimulating the follicles to enter the growth phase. PRP therapy is a minimally invasive procedure with minimal side effects and can be used in combination with other hair loss treatments.
How does PRP therapy work?
PRP therapy for hair loss begins with a blood draw. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge, which spins the blood to separate the red blood cells from the plasma. The plasma is then injected into the scalp. The whole process takes about 30 minutes.
PRP therapy can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with other hair loss treatments, such as medication or surgery. PRP therapy is most effective when used in combination with other treatments.
Are there any side effects of PRP therapy?
PRP therapy is a minimally invasive procedure with few side effects. The most common side effect is injection site discomfort, which can be relieved with ice or oral pain medication. Other possible side effects include temporary numbness, swelling, bruising, and itching at the injection site.
