PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Hair Loss Treatment

Hair is the crowning glory – this statement itself conveys the importance hair plays in one’s appearance and identity. Hair is a symbol of one’s identity and appearance. A head full of hair is a sign of beauty, good health, strength, and confidence.

The hair we have in our early days is not the same in our adult stage. The thickness of hair decreases as we age; this is because the hair life cycle gets affected as we grow old. Normally hair loss is expected post 40’s, but the change in lifestyle, pollution levels, and other factors have pre-pone the age limit for hair loss to late 20’s.

What is the life cycle of hair?

What are the 3 stages of hair life?

Anagen is the active or growing phase of hair. Hair grows about 1 cm every 28 days in this phase. Hair stays in anagen phase for minimum 2 to 6 years.

Catagen phase is the transitional or evolving stage. Almost 3% of all hairs are in this phase at any point of time in life. This phase lasts not more than two to three weeks.

Telogen phase or the resting phase lasts not more than 3 to 6 months. Normally 10 to 15% of hair falls out during this stage.

A healthy person’s scalp has about 85 to 90% of hair follicles in actively growing (Anagen) phase and 10 to 15% in resting (Telogen) phase. A new Anagen phase hair follicle grows under the Telogen phase hair and eventually pushes it out. Hence, it is normal to lose up to 80 to 100 hairs per day. However when there is a significant change in the body system, as many as up to 70% of Anagen phase hair can go to Telogen phase, thus reversing the usual ratio. This reversal results in hair loss.

How many types of hair loss are there?

There are 2 types – the Acute hair loss and Chronic hair loss

What is Acute Hair Loss & what are the reasons?

Acute hair loss is a temporary hair loss which is scientifically termed as “Telogen Effluvium.” This kind of hair loss doesn’t last for more than 3 months, and usually, the hair re-grow post the period.

The reasons behind acute or temporary hair loss can be:

  • Hormonal imbalance which may occur due to puberty, pregnancy, PCOS, thyroid related concerns, post-partum, or menopause
  • Prolonged illness like high fever, severe infections, cancer and other life-threatening conditions like lupus
  • Deficiency of nutrients like protein, iron, Vitamin B12, zinc, selenium, etc
  • Certain oral and topical medications
  • Unhealthy and unhygienic scalp conditions
  • Exposure to sun, dust, dirt and other pollutants
  • Excessive hairstyling like blow drying, hair straightening, coloring, curling, etc.
  • Stress, emotional low, depression

What is Chronic Hair Loss & what is the reason?

The hair loss that stays with you for more than 3 months and is irresponsive to home remedies & medications can be termed as chronic hair loss. The most common reason behind chronic hair loss is genetics which mingles with the levels of DHT.

The genes that male pattern baldness sufferers are inheriting are the hair follicles with a genetic sensitivity to DHT. Hair follicles which are sensitive to DHT begin to miniaturize, thus shortening the lifespan of each hair follicle and eventually not producing any hair. Besides this, there can be other causing factors too which can be identified by an accredited trichologist or hair doctor.

Since genes are the culprit most of the times, this hair loss is also termed as genetic hair loss. This hair loss condition is mostly associated with men, but it can happen to female too. In fact, various researchers have concluded that 2 out of every 5 genetic hair loss cases are that of a female.

While men experience the "male pattern baldness" (commonly vertex balding and receding frontal and crown hairline), women experience the “female pattern baldness,” which is usually diffuse or can be thinning on the top of the head or the crown while maintaining the frontal hairline.

What is DHT?

DHT is nothing but a steroid hormone derived from testosterone. An enzyme named as 5-alpha reductase converts testosterone into DHT. DHT shrinks the hair follicles. The absence of DHT makes hair follicles thrive healthily. DHT is the androgen hormone which is responsible for male pattern baldness.

How can I treat the hair loss caused by DHT?

There are much treatment but all of them are mostly temporary, but the revolutionary PRP hair loss treatment is the sure shot way to cure genetic patterned baldness. This simple, non-invasive procedure is an exciting option for natural hair re-growth and stimulation with the cosmetic medical science behind it.

Do I have to prepare for the treatment?

There are a few pre-care instructions that need to be followed to optimize the results of the PRP therapy for hair loss.

  • Avoid heavy exercise, strenuous physical activities one day before your procedure.
  • Increase your intake of water one day before your procedure and on the day of the procedure by drinking 2 glasses of water in breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

  • Sauna and hot bath need to be stopped for at least a week or as per advice by the doctor.
  • Regular application of topical medications needs to be followed.

How PRP Works?

The platelets present in the blood work during the PRP treatment. Platelet-rich plasma is enriched with growth factors, and once the PRP is infused to the scalp, it releases the growth factors in it which stimulates the hair growth by pushing the Telogen hair to Anagen phase. Once the PRP is exhausted and finishes its life span (which is usually 7 days), the WBC or white blood cells attracted by the growth factors continue the process by secreting growth factors.

The amount of blood extracted and the method of centrifuge play an important role in the level of effectiveness for hair loss treatment with PRP therapy. More platelets count guarantee better results.

Ensure to consult an experienced dermato-trichologist for an in-depth understanding of the PRP procedure and how PRP actually works.

What can I expect after the PRP hair loss treatment?

Post the administration of PRP with fine needles on the scalp; one can expect mild swelling and redness for a day or two. It is advised to avoid vigorous activities, exercise, smoking, and alcohol for 3 to 4 days to promote healing. There is absolutely no downtime following the procedure; candidates can resume their daily activities immediately after the session.

New hair growth can be seen as early as 2 months, but is evidently visible between 5-8 months and will continue to improve post this.

For best and effective results, dermato-trichologist usually recommends 4 to 8 sessions at a gap of 30 to 45 days considering one’s severity of hair loss, physical attributes, and health concern.

What is PRP Hair Treatment?

The PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a concentrated form of your platelets. The platelets which are rich in bioactive proteins are extracted from your blood (usually drawn from your arm). Platelets are separated from the blood through a centrifuge machine. Later, the PRP is activated and then injected. This is done on the scalp in thinning areas through tiny syringes. Thus PRP is delivered right at the hair root which is in the miniaturization phase. This results in rejuvenated hair growth as the hair follicle gets repaired.

How does PRP work in improving hair?

Once the injections are given, the activated platelets secrete an initial burst of growth factors such as the VEGF that stimulates the production of new blood vessels. After the initial burst, the platelets synthesize and secrete additional growth factors for a week approx. Once the platelets are exhausted, the white blood cells come to the injected area to secrete growth factors and carry out the same functions.
