With advancements in technology and medical field, PRP is now applied to reduce and prevent hair loss and baldness. But people often have lots of questions about this treatment. So, we decided to answer some of the frequently asked questions to clarify this topic.
PRP is actually a therapy. This treatment is not a hair transplant. For this reason, it is known as non-surgical treatment. In this treatment, patient’s blood is used to stimulate hair growth in areas with hair loss.
There are few steps in this treatment. First, blood is taken from the patient. After that, blood is separated to three parts in a special centrifuge machine. These parts are platelet rich plasma, platelet poor plasma and serum. Only platelet rich plasma is used for PRP treatment. Other two components are discarded with appropriate methods.
After obtaining this platelet rich plasma, it is placed inside a special applicator. By using this applicator, plasma is applied to scalp. This applicator consists of micro needles. Due to micro needles, application might cause slight discomfort.
PRP is not a painful process. Since special applicator has micro needles, it might cause discomfort at the beginning. But after couple of minutes, patients easily feel comfortable.
PRP does not have side effects. In this treatment, patient’s own blood is used. For this reason, there are no side effects related with application. However, there might be slight tenderness in application area in the first day. This tenderness will go away on the second day.
