Nowadays, most of the hair transplant Clinics commercially propagate that the PRP, an acronym of the ‘Platelet-Rich Plasma’ is an alternate of the hair transplant procedure, but it is NOT right as it can only control the hair loss and improve the thickness of hair to some extent. It is good for those candidates who are simply affected by the Norwood grade I or II baldness or suffering from the hair thinning problem, which is often seen among youngsters! But, the repeated sessions are required at a regular interval of 2-3 months to maintain the results; otherwise, the effect will reverse.
The Facts about PRP is Worth to discuss here:
What is PRP?
PRP (platelet rich plasma) is a concentrated blood, which is concentrated by the proper RPM and then injected into affected areas.
The small quantity of blood that is taken from the patient’s own scalp is concentrated with the help of a centrifugal machine in order to re-inject the concentrated platelets into the affected areas.
Am I a good candidate for PRP?
The PRP session is fruitful for those patients who have a lesser grade of baldness such as Norwood grade I or II. It is also admissible in the case of the hair thinning problem.
If a person is too young to receive the hair transplant surgery or having a starting phase of hair loss, PRP can be recommended. In such a case when the patient is affected by a higher NW class of baldness more than grade III, the only permanent solution, which is recommended by the Surgeon, is the Hair Transplant!
When does a PRP preparation go wrong?
A Wrong Mixture: The science of PRP is all based on the concentrated blood plasma enriched with platelet count injected into the patient’s scalp. It is advisable for the patient that they must receive the PRP treatment only with the expert Doctors as the concentration & preparation of the solution does matter with respect to the recommended temperature with proper RPM of a centrifugal machine. Even a small mistake while preparing the PRP can lead to a poor or zero results.
The Centrifugal force & Temperature: The centrifugal force, and temperature of the centrifugation, as well as planning of the PRP injection, affects the PRP result for which a good Doctor is required with many years of experience. The centrifugal speed with proper RPM is considered while preparing the PRP solution.
For the preparation of PRP, various protocols are used, with an underlying principle of concentrating platelets to 3-5 times physiological levels, then injecting this concentrated form in the tissue where hair growth is desired.
