Advanced PRP Treatment

Hair loss, also known as alopecia, is a common condition that affects both men and women. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, age, hormonal changes, stress, certain medications, and medical conditions.

One of the most common causes of hair loss is androgenetic alopecia, which is a genetic condition that causes hair follicles to shrink over time. This condition is more commonly known as male or female pattern baldness.

Other causes of hair loss include nutritional deficiencies, autoimmune disorders, thyroid disorders, and certain skin conditions such as alopecia areata.

Pathology :

Hair fall occurs due to disturbance in hair growth cycle.

Hair growth occurs in three main stages, which are anagen, catagen, and telogen. The anagen stage is the growth phase, where the hair follicle actively produces hair. The catagen stage is a transitional phase, where the hair follicle stops growing and prepares to enter the telogen phase. The telogen phase is the resting phase, where the hair follicle remains inactive before falling out.

In Androgenetic alopecia ,there is shortening of anagen phase of hair cycle leading to premature fall of the hair.

In effluvium cases like telogen effluvium, there is sudden entry of large percentage of hair follicles into telogen that is shedding phase of hair cycle.

This leads to sudden spike in hair loss sometimes experiencing 200-300 hair follicles shedding per day in tufts.

Treatments: There are various treatments available for hair loss, including medication, hair transplant surgery, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, mesotherapy, low level laser light therapy.

PRP therapy involves taking a sample of the patient’s blood and spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood. The platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the patient’s scalp, where it is believed to stimulate hair growth.

PRP therapy is a relatively new treatment for hair loss, and research on its effectiveness is ongoing. Some studies have shown promising results, with patients experiencing increased hair density and thickness after receiving PRP therapy.

PRP Preparation Process: The PRP preparation process involves drawing a small amount of the patient’s blood, typically from their arm. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge, which separates the plasma from the other components of the blood. The resulting plasma is then concentrated to create a solution that is rich in platelets and growth factors.
