ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PRP
PRP Hair Restoration Toronto also known as Platelet-rich Plasma Treatment is a medical innovation which works by supplying the body with natural proteins, cytokines, stem cells and other bioactive growth factors. Though regeneration medicine is a thing dreams are made of but scientific and technological advancements in the last two decades have given new insight into how the body’s natural healing process works.
How does PRP Work?
We all learned in school that blood has two main components, those are the red blood cells and the plasma. The plasma contains white blood cells and platelets which stimulate growth and help to stimulate hair follicles and prolong the growing phase of the hair cycle. PRP works for hair loss by stimulating the inactive and newly planted hair follicles which enter an active growth phase.
The first step of the treatment is drawing of blood from the arm, just like it is done either when you are donating blood or undergoing a routine blood test. This blood is then put into a centrifuge machine in which it is spun rapidly to separate the plasma from the red blood cells. This plasma is then injected into the scalp at the follicular level by the doctor to stimulate the inactive follicles and generate hair growth.
While undergoing the procedure some patients have reportedly felt a milt pressure at the injection site. No anaesthetic is required. In case you do experience any discomfort after the procedure, you can always take some over-the-counter medication to manage it. Bruising is one of the side-effects of the procedure, but it usually resolves within a week or so. The best part about the treatment is that there is no downtime for recovery. Hence, most patients usually go back to work on the same day.
Why you should opt for PRP?
There are many doubts which may arise when planning to opt for PRP. One of the main reasons why it is increasingly becoming a popular option is because it an all-natural solution which has been medically and scientifically backed. If you want to opt for a promising non-surgical therapeutic option for hair regrowth, then PRP is the best option available. Over the period, it has increasingly proven to be effective for increasing both hair count and hair thickness and also improves hair growth.
What are the risks of PRP for hair loss?
Though stimulating the hair follicles with the help of plasma which has been separated from your blood, might sound a bit extreme but there are virtually no side effects of the treatment. As the plasma is separated from the blood which was drawn from you, you don’t have to worry about any allergic reaction or issues with biocompatibility. Hence, there are absolutely no side effects of the treatment.
