PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy For Hair Loss
Platelets are tiny cells in your blood that repair damaged blood vessels and stop bleeding after injuries. They are virtual powerhouses, rich in growth factors that stimulate the hair follicle stem cells to divide and thicken the miniature hairs. Platelet-rich plasma is a concentrated form of your own platelets, obtained from your blood. It is delivered to the stem cells of the hair by the process of miniaturization at the hair root. In combination with medical treatment in the form of lotions or foams and oral medications including dietary supplements, PRP treatments boost re-growth and restore more hair than was thought possible before its usage.
Owing to the current hectic and stressful lifestyle, hair loss and thinning has become common in men and women.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatment comes as a ray of hope and plays a vital role against hair loss. With the right procedure, hair thinning can be reduced and natural hair growth is restored with more vigor.

Frequently Asked Questions on Laser Hair Removal Treatment
Platelets are the tiny cells in your body which act as powerhouses of growth factors. They repair the damaged blood vessels, cease the blood flow after an injury, and also stimulate the hair follicle stem cells to ensure they multiply vigorously thus improving hair thickness and volume.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a concentrated form of your own platelets. The platelets which are rich in bioactive proteins are extracted from your own blood (usually drawn from your arm). These are then separated from the rest of the blood with the help of a centrifuge machine. Later, the PRP is activated and then injected into the scalp in thinning areas through tiny syringes. Thus, the platelets are delivered right at the hair root which is in the miniaturization phase. This results in a rejuvenated hair growth as the hair follicle gets repaired.
Once the injections are given, the activated platelets secrete an initial burst of growth factors such as the VEGF which stimulates the production of new blood vessels. It also activates the wound healing mechanism through PDF(platelet derived growth factor). TGF-b is another growth factor which enables new epidermal and hair cells to develop. Once the initial burst takes place, the platelets synthesize and secrete additional growth factors. This happens for the remaining seven days of their lifespan. After this, white blood cells get attracted to the injection sites and take over the same process for few more days.
Mesotherapy is a superficial injection comprising of nutrients, stem cells, extremely diluted drugs, and growth factors which originate from ‘non-standardized sources’. But in PRP, the platelets are taken from your own body thereby ensuring that the cross infection or foreign body reactions are negligible. Though Mesotherapy was discovered in 1950, there is no encouraging scientific evidence about it. On the contrary, PRP has proved its credentials in treating diabetic ulcers and even as an adjuvant in cancer therapies. With the same principle, the PRP process is used for treating pattern hair loss and increasing the hair follicles’ volume and density.
In stem cell therapy, processed mouse hair stem cells or green apple stem cells are used as injections which may have some growth factors. How far these stem cells can grow human hair is a question that runs across our minds if given a serious thought. So in all ways, PRP makes an excellent alternative with powerful back up of case studies from reputed American and European journals.
The number of sessions depends on the stage of hair loss. But a minimum of 6-10 sessions is required which are done at monthly intervals. The duration of the session is about 30-40 minutes.
There are hardly any side effects. Sometimes there could be initial pain, minor redness, or possible heavy headedness for an hour or two which can be relieved with a pain killer. The PRP therapy is actually quite painless as 80% do not complain or request for help after procedure. It is not supposed to cause any allergy or infections.
There is no risk of any allergic reaction with PRP therapy because the enriched plasma is produced from the patient’s own blood. A concentrated amount of white blood cells make up part of the PRP which are the body’s natural defenders against infections. Infections are therefore extremely rare.
Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is a revolutionary cutting edge treatment for genetic and patterned hair loss in men and women. No cuts are made, neither there is any chance for surgery or scars. The PRP treatment involves infusion of the targeted hair loss areas of the scalp with platelet-rich plasma thus resulting in stimulation of natural growth of hair.
There are ample number of reasons to choose PRP over other treatments. The first one being zero chance of cuts or scars and also maximum chance of hair re-growth. There is no chance of allergies or any kind of rejection since the treatment is absolutely natural using one’s own blood.
Yes, PRP hair regeneration therapy is a multiple session procedure spaced at 30 to 45 days of time interval. The dermato-trichologist reviews the scalp and the response post each session to decide on the number of sessions. The number of sessions differs for every individual and the usual number of sessions required ranges from four to eight.
PRP is an absolute no downtime or no recovery hair loss treatment. Maximum of 30 minutes of rest is what is required. Candidates can directly resume their normal daily routine directly from the clinic.
Yes, you can. PRP is an injection-based procedure and thus the pain or discomfort is absolutely comfortable. It feels like a pinching sensation on the scalp. For extremely sensitive clients who have zero tolerance to pain, the doctor can prescribe oral medications if necessary to alleviate the discomfort.
The results are quite satisfactory and encouraging. This is possible as dermato-trichologists customize the treatment according to the pattern of hair loss and its severity. The treatment is often combined with topical lotions and oral drugs for optimal results.
