My hair started falling out early. I cant say for sure if it was sudden. I had lost a dear family member and was recovering from an illness. At first, the shedding didn’t bother me. But after a year, when I noticed my part widening and I no longer have that bouncy hair, panic set in.
What I Tried Next
For the next few years I have tried to combat my hair loss by trying hair spas and different oils and shampoos but with little or no success. By my 30s, I had given up and taken for granted that my story of hair fall will never end. Then, sometime back, I heard about a new hair-loss treatment. During a general discussion, I was venting about my hair thinning and one of my colleagues said, “You should try Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment from Clinic Dermatech to combat hair loss.” “It will surely give you some good results,” she said, providing me all the details of the clinic. Two weeks later I got my first appointment with Clinic Dermatech.
What exactly is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy or PRP?
The hair expert from the clinic explained the basics of Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy or PRP. This is one of the safest and non-invasive US FDA approved treatments that uses your body’s own blood plasma that is rich in platelets.
Platelets which are found in the blood, are full of proteins called growth factors, that speed up the wound healing process. In high concentrations, growth factors are also considered to help combat hair loss. This plasma, when injected, helps miniaturized hair follicles to become healthier and thus lead to robust hair growth. It is natural, with no downtime and performed by expert dermatologists. PRP therapy is effective in preventing hair loss by strengthening hair follicles and thicken existing hair.
What is the Procedure for PRP
At first, I was scared about the pain associated with the treatment. But the doctors helped clear my doubts and misgivings about the procedure. A numbing cream is applied to the scalp of the client so that he/she feels no pain. The next step is to inject the platelet-rich plasma into the scalp. No medication is required thereafter. It is usually recommended to take 4 – 6 sessions at a one-month interval for optimal results.
