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.
What Doctor Says about the PRP is Worth to discuss here:
What is PRP?
PRP (platelet rich plasma) is a concentrated blood, which is made by the addition of some medicines and then injected into affected areas.
The small quantity of blood that is taken from the patient’s own scalp mixed with some particular medicines. And, further, this mixture 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!
Does PRP preparation can go wrong?
From where should we get it?
The science of PRP is all based on their mixture and concentration that is going to inject into the patient’s scalp. It is advisable for the patient that they must receive the PRP session only with the expert Doctors as the concentration & preparation of the solution does matter with respect to the medicinal solution under recommended temperature with proper RPM of a centrifugal machine. Even a small mistake while preparation of PRP can lead to a poor or zero results.
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.
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 concentrate in the tissue where hair growth is desired.

Is PRP is a permanent solution OR an alternative to Hair Transplant?
PRP is a temporary solution to hair fall and only can control the progression of hair loss or an option to thicken the hair rather being a solution to regenerate the hair at a bald portion, whereas a hair transplant procedure has an ability to regenerate the hair growth at the bald areas.
How long lasting is the result of PRP?
The PRP needed to be repeated at regular interval of 2-3 months to maintain the effect and once you stopped, the hair loss started again with hair thinning that is not a long-lasting option. However, the results of hair transplant remain for lifelong.
Hair transplant surgery aims to achieve a result that is as natural as possible. In order to do this, however, we need more than the most up to date techniques.
