Introduction PRP therapy
Platelet-rich plasma therapy, sometimes called PRP therapy or autologous conditioned plasma (ACP) therapy, attempts to take advantage of the blood’s natural healing properties to repair damaged cartilage, tendons, ligaments, muscles, or even bone. A unique healing formula extracted from a person’s own blood.
PRP therapy is most commonly used in treatment of hair fall, hair growth and baldness.
HOW IS PRP DONE?
Platelet Rich Plasma is an OPD procedure that takes around 45 to 60 minutes for the completion. A little amount of blood (equal to routine blood tests) is extracted from the patient. This blood is attributed to double spin centrifugation methodology to achieve plasma rich in platelets. The system of processing and secluding PRP is very vital. It should be optimally suffice to receive a platelet concentration of at the minimum 300 to 400% higher than the whole blood. That is regarded as therapeutic PRP. Any platelet concentration less than this will just not be effective and a concentration more than this would barely offer any additional advantages.
HOW DOES PRP WORK FOR HAIR LOSS?
The PRP procedure needs about 4 to 8 sessions at an interim of 5 weeks to 2 months. The favorable or expected results are generally observed over a time span of 9 to 12 months.
HOW SAFE IS A PRP FOR THE HAIR LOSS PROCEDURE?
PRP for hair loss, skin rejuvenation or tendons is a completely safe procedure. The only inconvenience caused to the patient is the discomfort of multiple needles piercing while withdrawing of blood and injecting the same into the affected area.
