Hair Treatment

Platelet-rich fibrin is a great choice of treatment option for hair loss because a number of studies show efficacy in increasing hair count, hair thickness, and the growth phase of the hair cycle.
Platelet-rich plasma is a newer choice of treatment in various types of alopecia. PRP treatment is a non-surgical three-step medical procedure where concentrated plasma rich in growth factors and nutrients separated from an individual''''''''s own blood is injected into parts of the scalp that need hair growth. It''''''''s a safe and effective way to reverse hair loss and activate new hair growth.
While preparing for the treatment, a sample of individual blood was drawn and centrifuged to separate different constituents of the blood based on their densities such as the red blood cells, platelet-poor plasma, and platelet-rich plasma. The PRP solution is then drawn into a syringe and injected into affected areas of the scalp. it''''''''s proposed that growth factors released from platelets act on stem cells in the bulge area of the follicles, stimulating the development of new follicles and promoting neovascularization.
Platelet-rich plasma is naturally designed for repairing and healing wounds too. PRP releases proteins that stimulate the growth of specific tissues.
