PRP Injections for Hair Restoration- What to Expect
1

PRP i.e., Platelet-rich plasma is a relatively new treatment for hair loss in the dermatology industry. There have been clinical studies on PRP therapy and its efficacy which suggests that the therapy can actually help with hair loss treatment. This has led many dermatologists to recently put the PRP injections into practice. Let’s explore more about PRP therapy and its role in hair restoration.

What is PRP Therapy?

PRP therapy makes use of the best plasma that the blood has to offer. It heals the injuries fast and encourages different growth factors. It also increases the collagen levels and stem cells which are produced in the body naturally for looking fresh and young. These growth factors are used for regrowing the thinning hair.

How is the PRP Procedure Done?

To perform the therapy, blood is drawn from your body from locations such as arms. This blood is then placed in the centrifuge for spinning down in three layers namely- plasma rich in platelets, platelet-poor plasma and red blood cells. The plasma rich platelet injection will be used for the treatment. This PRP blood injection will be put on your scalp with a syringe. The cosmetic surgeon in Ahmedabad will apply a local anesthetic beforehand to avoid any type of pain.

Who Can Benefit from PRP Injections?

PRP injections can prove to be beneficial for a wide array of people than we believe. Here’s a look at how the plasma-rich injections can potentially help candidates suffering from hair loss:

  • PRP Benefits both Men and Women

Male pattern baldness and thinning of hair are talked about quite often. However, women too suffer from hair thinning due to many underlying reasons. Even women can benefit from PRP therapy just like men for hair restoration.

  • Alopecia

People suffering from androgenic alopecia or any other form of alopecia suffer from male/ female pattern baldness. It is a hereditary condition which affects millions of people across the globe. However, people with alopecia can benefit from the PRP therapy.

  • Age Factor

One of the best things about PRP therapy is that it can benefit people of almost ages. People ranging from 18 to 72 years of age can benefit from the PRP therapy.

  • Stress-related Hairfall

People who are suffering from hair loss due to excessive stress can also seek positive results from the PRP treatment as it is not a chronic condition.

  • Recent Hair Loss

It has been witnessed that the more recent the hair loss, the more chances of fixing it before it is too late for the PRP injections to work.

  • Balding People

Those individuals who are experiencing balding or thinning but are not completely bald can benefit from the PRP injections. These injections are meant for strengthening, thickening and growing the hair follicles which are still functioning regardless of how weak they appear to be.

Dos and Don’ts for PRP Therapy

What can be done before the Procedure

  • The candidate must shampoo and condition their hair before the therapy. It makes the scalp clean and grease free and creates a sterile environment for the treatment.
  • Have a healthy breakfast before the procedure along with doctor prescribed amount of water. This will prevent the candidate from feeling dizzy, nauseous, or fainting.
Dos after the Procedure
  • After the procedure has been done, it is time to resume normal activity. PRP injection should in no way cause inconvenience or come in the way of your routine. Unlike other procedures, PRP will not cause fatigue or drowsiness.
  • You can shampoo your hair as per your schedule unless the injection site is painful or irritated.
Pre-procedure Don’ts
  • The candidate should not use any hair product such as gel or hair spray for at least three days before the PRP therapy. Using hair products can cause side effects in the long run.
  • It is recommended to not drink or smoke heavily before the procedure. It can disqualify the candidate from the therapy as it can lower the platelet count drastically.

Post-procedure Don’ts

  • It is not recommended to use hair color or perm the hair for at least 72 hours after the PRP therapy. Harsh chemicals can irritate the injection site. It can lead to complications or exacerbate the scalp.
Cost of Treatment

The PRP treatment cost ranges from INR 4,500 to 15,000 per session in India. The total cost will depend on the number of sessions you would need. However, the PRP injection cost will vary based on various factors such as location, experience of the doctor, reputation of the clinic, and much more.

It is important to get a consultation session done by Dr. Kedarnath Pandya before getting the treatment. It helps in getting complete information about the therapy along with the cost of treatment.
