PRP Therapy is a non-surgical technique that has been developed to make hair loss treatment less invasive and more comfortable for the patient. When you decide to undergo PRP Therapy in order to get rid of patchy hair loss and regain your thick, luscious hair, you are required to give your plasma sample at one of our clinics. This is as simple and quick as having a routine blood test done at a physician’s office. The plasma is then centrifuged at a high speed to separate the growth factors present in the blood from the rest of the cells.
To ensure that you experience no pain or discomfort during the process, an anaesthesia block is given. After that, we inject the growth factors into the scalp using a fine needle. Once the treatment is done, you can drive back home without anyone’s assistance as no sedation or any other medicine is given during the process.
Patients who have undergone PRP treatment report the non-surgical, painless nature of PRP Therapy to be its prime benefit. In addition to this, there are several advantages of PRP Therapy, which include:
