PRP or platelet rich plasma therapy is a very safe and a very effective treatment in men and women. We are going to discuss the three steps involved in the treatment. First and foremost when the patient comes in the clinic, after proper cleansing the blood is withdrawn from the vein present in the anticubital fossa. Around about 8 to 10 ml of blood is taken in specialized tubes. Second step involves that we centrifuge these tubes in a particular rpm and out of the whole blood a rich plasma is withdrawn. The third steps involves that after proper cleansing of the scalp and the anesthesia. This platelet rich plasma is taken into thin syringes and injected into the scalp of the patient. Once the PRP goes inside the scalp and reaches upto the hair follicle, it starts giving out something called as the growth factors. These growth factors go and they further include a further cascade that involves newer hair generation and also hairfall stoppage. The ideal and most effective treatment for 4 to 6 sessions are recommended at a gap of 4 weeks each. Also at times the PRP can be included with what we call as a low level laser light therapy which further increases the chances of PRP to be more beneficial.
