PRP for Hair

Hair loss is a common problem that most people face at one point in their life. While some hair loss problems are temporary and recover over a period of time, others lead to alopecia. If you are wondering what alopecia is, it is just a fancy word used for baldness caused by hair loss. If you are losing hair that is resulting in a receding hairline, thinning on the crown, or thinning through the parting, then it is time you visit Dr. Rafiq Rahimi for PRP treatments. Excessive hair loss from the scalp leads to alopecia in both men and women. Unless it is treated, it can lead to complete baldness.

What Causes Hair Loss?

A hair loss treatment that works for your friend may not work for you. Everyone is born differently and your reason for baldness may be different from others. Several reasons cause baldness such as:
Apart from the causes mentioned above, your age, family history, your present health condition, and treatments taken can pose a threat and increase your risk of losing hair. Your treatment differs based on your general health, the health of your scalp, and the extent of hair loss.

Have You Heard of PRP Rejuvenation?

Your blood is made up of red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. The plasma carries blood cells and nutrients throughout the body. When you bleed, the platelets in your blood plug and form a clot. Platelets are the tiny cells that rush to the site of injury to repair the damage. Platelets are rich in a growth factor that plays the role of a messenger, signaling your skin cells to function. They stimulate tissue recovery by increasing blood flow and cytokines.
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. It is processed blood plasma from which the red blood cells and white blood cells are removed and only a concentration of plasma with platelets remains. The blood drawn from you is transferred into a tube that is placed in a centrifuge. A centrifuge is a machine used by scientists to isolate the solids from the liquids in any solution. The centrifuge spins rapidly, causing the heaviest particles in the blood to fall to the bottom of the tube. The red blood cells are forced to the bottom, followed by the platelet-rich plasma which also consists of white blood cells.
The PRP rejuvenation treatment uses your own blood platelets to stimulate cell growth and collagen production.

Dr. Rafiq Rahimi will mark the area on your scalp where hair needs to be restored. The marked area on your head is cleaned using a disinfectant and numbed using local anesthesia. The plasma, which is rich in platelet is drawn into a syringe and injected into your scalp and the site is cleaned thoroughly again.

After the treatment, you will be advised to stop taking vitamins, blood thinners and other contraindicated medicines for three to seven days. The PRP hair rejuvenation treatment is a non-surgical treatment that takes just a few minutes of your time. You may experience some tenderness, a feeling of tightness and minimal pain in the area of the injection, but the result of this treatment is worth the applaud as it helps regrow and thicken existing hair follicles with no downtime and minimal discomfort.
