How PRP works to regrow hair. In your search to arrest hair loss and promote hair growth, you must have come across Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment (“PRP”) in Perth, Australia and had a few questions about it. So let us address a few important ones.
What is PRP Hair Treatment?
PRP Hair Treatment (“Platelet Rich Plasma”) is a safe, 100% natural, non-surgical procedure that promotes hair growth for men and women by using their own plasma and growth factors to targeted areas of the scalp with hair loss. Studies have found that PRP reduces hair loss, increases diameter and density of hairs, and accelerates healing after a hair transplant procedure. Moreover, it’s not just for hair— PRP can be used in tendons, ligaments, and muscles as well.
How does PRP Hair Treatment work?
At Evolved Clinics in Perth, Australia, we perform the PRP Hair Treatment to regrow hair as follows –
1. The Blood Draw: Some blood is typically taken from the arm and infused into a centrifuge that spins the blood.
2. Centrifuge Isolation: The rapid motion in a centrifuge separates the fluids in the blood in about 10-20 minutes. The goal is to isolate the Platelet Rich Plasma, which is a yellowish color, from the red and white blood cells.
3. PRP Scalp Injections: The isolated PRP is then injected with specialized micro needling pen into precise areas of the scalp to stimulate hair growth. Local anesthesia is used to minimize discomfort during treatment.
Studies on How PRP Hair Treatment works to regrow hair
For the un-initiated, PRP is a medically and scientifically proven branch of regenerative medicine and has been in use since several decades to improve joint pain, repair wounds and other inflammatory conditions.
Larger clinical studies are pending but the current medical literature contains numerous optimistic results. There are several other studies (“Study 2” and “Study 3”), which supports the application of PRP to regrow hair.
“There are several cases that shows how PRP works to regrow hair in many individuals,” says Paul Green, Qualified Trichologist at the Evolved Hair Restoration Clinics in Perth, Australia. “But it’s really made for cases where the hair loss is not aggressive. For female, there is largely a thinning problem where PRP is highly effective as well. At Evolved, we also use PRP during surgery to maximize graft survivability and to accelerate healing of the scalp of the hair transplant procedure.”
Paul further states that many patients at Evolved undergo a cocktail of hair loss treatments including PRP, Hair Mesotherapy, Micro needling and Laser Hair Growth Therapy, depending on their individual conditions, to maximize benefits and get desired results.”
How many PRP Hair Treatment sessions are required to get the desired results?
While individual results vary with each patient but most patients require 3-6 treatments, with each treatment spaced around 4 weeks apart.
Results of PRP treatment are most noticeable after six months for scalp injections. Once you reach your desired results, patients may require additional maintenance therapy every 6 months, at the direction of the doctor.
