Hair Restoration Results: Case# 1202
There has been an increase in the use of platelet-rich plasma, abbreviated as PRP, in medical and cosmetic procedures worldwide. Since the 1990′s, clinicians have used PRP in a variety of fields of medicine. A growing number of people are considering PRP as a legitimate hair loss treatment.
PRP treatments entail transforming a small amount of the patient’s blood into a potent serum that aids in hair growth initiation. It is a non-surgical procedure that capitalizes on the growth-promoting properties of blood. PRP is abundant in growth factors, therefore stimulating hair follicles.
How is a PRP session conducted?
A single PRP treatment lasts between 45 and 60 minutes. The following steps summarize the procedure:
Firstly, a patient’s blood is drawn from their arm, similar to a blood test.
Secondly, we separated the platelets from the patient’s blood to obtain the nutrients in the platelets. Then we applied the local freezing drugs to numb the patient’s scalp. Lastly, we reinjected platelet-rich plasma (PRP) into the scalp.
How many patients benefit from PRP?
According to a recent poll of PRP specialists, around 50% of patients will achieve some improvement.
