HOW DOES IT WORK?
It is a
biological therapy. Prepared plasma contains platelets which are
in normal blood. It has different growth factors
PDGF and VEGF. Both these factors have significant positive
hair growth. PRP may actually wake up dormant stem cells in
giving new hair growth. So this therapy gives strength to
hair, reduce hair fall and likely to increase the actual
number of hair
by stimulating the stem cells.
WHEN TO SEE THE PROGRESS?

hair fall within 4-6 weeks while new growth is likely in
months. Repetitions of the procedure of Platlet rich
repeated every 3-5 weeks for 4-6 sessions.

complain of slight pain during the procedure but most of
them are ready

side effects have been reported so far except some patients
burning/soreness sensation which last for a day or so.
WHAT IS THE FREQUENCY OF PRP?
We perform the
procedure of platlet rich plasma at an interval of
month for 4-6 times depending on the severity of the
hairloss and once the
desired results are obtained then a booster dose
can be given
every year to maintain the results.
