PRP For Hair Loss
It is very normal for people to shed some hair on a daily basis, but excessive hair loss is a very big concern to both men and women. With PRP the platelets aid in the clotting of blood which is the key to the body's ability to heal wounds. PRP increases the platelet count in the wounded area and the body healing capacity in that area is then increased. Doctors incorporate PRP for growth of thinning hair, transplanted hair and wound healing. Many patients have benefited from this treatment.
How does PRP help in treating hair loss?
In hair growth, if the follicles of the hair are healthy, the growth of the hair is healthy. The hair follicles survive nutrtionally from the blood supply. When we introduce platelets from PRP in an area where the follicle is damaged, the body's own naturally occurring wound healing mechanism are amplified. PRP can be used to stimulate the growth of hair follicles preventing hair loss.
Treatments may be done in a series of treatments depending of the severity of hair loss. Some patients may only have to receive this therapy once a year.
