For a normal person it is very common to lose hair every day. It becomes a major problem when these hair strips are not grown again. About 85% of men in their 50s will be facing this serious issue of hair thinning. Hair loss troubles not only old people but young and teens also got distracted thinking about the loss of their hair. The hair loss problems encountered by both men and women are different. Balding is seen in men whereas hair fall with thinning of hair is seen in women. Common balding in men is due to the effect of testosterone metabolites in genetically susceptible hair follicles. There are also various other factors such as Thyroid disease, anemia, protein deficiency, secondary syphilis, chemotherapy, and low vitamin levels that leads to the hair loss. Once you encounter with this serious threat you start looking for a good dermatologist to solve your hair loss problem.
Even though there a lot of non-surgical treatments available in the market, PRP for hair loss is considered as the best hair loss treatment for men. It is the Platelets in our blood which are responsible for stimulating and enhancing hair follicle function. They increase blood flow and cytokines. The fluid part of the blood Plasma, carries blood cells and nutrients throughout the body. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is actually a concentration of plasma with platelets removing red blood cells and white blood cells. For plasma treatment for hair loss a concentration of PRP is taken from the patient’s own blood and is injected into the scalp to promote hair growth. PRP therapy has been using as a hair loss solution throughout the world since 1980s. Before going for a PRP for hair loss make sure that you do not suffer from any chronic medical conditions such liver disease, cancer, metabolic disorders etc.
PRP therapy requires three treatments 4–6 weeks apart and generally a three-step process is followed for the plasma treatment for hair loss:
- The blood is drawn from the patient’s arm and put into a machine called a centrifuge that spins rapidly to separate fluids of different densities.
- The patient’s blood in the centrifuge will get separated into three layers- platelet-poor plasma, platelet-rich plasma and red blood cells, after 10 minutes.
- Using a syringe the platelet-rich plasma of about volume 8 ml – 12 ml, is then injected into areas of the scalp that require an increased hair growth.

These will trigger the scalp skin to naturally produce collagen and elastin which stimulates natural hair growth. The injected Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) can be absorbed faster by these micro holes forcing the hair follicles to begin the production of new hair.
