If you look in the mirror and ask yourself whether or not you are going bald, then you aren’t the only one asking this question. Almost 60% of men and thousands of women ask themselves the same problem. Many people are severely affected by the issue of hair fall, especially in the United States of America.
But how do you become sure about patterned baldness? There are a few signs to confirm your doubts.
- Hair getting thin
- The shape of hair changes
- You get hair fall more than usual after combing or bathing.
Hair fall and baldness are natural processes (unless you are violent with your hair or your diet is not good) but, now people suffering from baldness have the option to restore their hairs. The current technology has provided this option of getting a hair transplant. If the hair loss is affecting your life, then you should consider getting PRP hair treatment. PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. It is a hair loss treatment that is effective, affordable, and provides confidence.
What exactly is PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)?
In easy and basic words, PRP is a blood therapy. It was initially created as a hair loss treatment, but because it is a blood therapy, it is used in the medical profession for treating other illnesses and wounds too. Our blood is made up of red blood cells, plasmas, platelets, and white blood cells. From these compounds of our blood, the plasma drives the PRP because it contains proteins, which are called ‘growth factors,’ and they are also the ‘healers.’ From plasma out, hair loss treatment gets its name. This is the reason that the PRP hair treatment success rate is so high.
PRP contains 5-10 times more platelets as compared to the normal platelets in our blood. To increase the platelets; the hair specialists draw your blood and make the blood go under a process called ‘centrifugation,’ which separates the platelets from your blood, and then multiplies them.
The four steps of PRP treatment:
If you are thinking about getting the PRP treatment, you should know that it is a four-step process. This process is described below.
- Step one: first, the blood is taken from your body (mostly from your arm). Then the blood is taken to a lab.
- Step two: the blood is then processed with centrifugation. In centrifugation, the blood is separated into various elements like platelets, cells, and plasma.
- Step three: the separated plasma is then added with more plasma (or platelet-rich plasma) to improve its efficiency.
- Step four: Finally, the improved blood sample is injected back into the scalp but into those areas where there is less or thin hair. The blood is injected in bald areas.
The efficiency of PRP therapy:
If you see signs of hair loss (mentioned above), then considering PRP treatment for hair loss is going to prove beneficial for you in future. It is a non-invasive procedure. It fights the hair loss issue and helps in better hair growth. This Treatment is ideal for people who are partially bald because PRP doesn’t work on complete baldness. During this hair loss treatment, you will receive three treatments every two months, and after that, you will receive maintenance. The maintenance depends on various things like the level of your baldness, age, and genetics.
PRP is an emerging therapy (relatively new), but it isn’t FDA approved yet. Knowing that PRP isn’t FDA approved, it will make you question the legitimacy of this treatment. However, to ensure the validity of PRP, you should visit a hair specialist and get his opinion on the procedure.
PRP is a treatment that is recommended by surgeons for several medical purposes. Apart from being highly effective, it is also non-surgical, has almost no side effects, and the cost of PRP hair treatment in Islamabad is meager. This treatment is best effective if opted for at the right time, i.e., before you get entirely bald.
