PRP ( platelet rich plasma) is an natural autologous procedure where patients own blood plasma is injected into the scalp and used for treatment of hair loss or hair thinning.
Blood contains plasma,red blood cells,white blood cells and platelets.Patelets are small discoid cells with a life span of about 7-10 days.Inside platelets contain granules which contain clotting and growth factors.Duing the healing process ,the platelets are activated and aggregate together.They then release the granules which contain growth factor.Human blood typically contains 6% platelets whereas PRP has a significantly increased supraphysiological platelet concentration.
Human blood plasma is richer in platelets.These platelet cells promote healing ,accelerates the rate & degree of tissue healing & regeneration and leads to formation of new cellular growth. The plasma contains growth factors like PDGF ,VEGF,IGF,FGF2 etc.that induce follicle stem cells to become active and have significant positive effect on hair growth; so giving strength to existing hairs,reducing hair loss & creates volumizing effect by increasing the actual no & quantity of hairs. In hair transplant ,the primary purpose of prp is to stimulate inactive or newly implanted hair follicles into an active growth phase.Individual results vary with each patient.
