Hair loss is increasingly becoming common. It is one’s worst nightmare. Whenever we see a huge bunch of hair come out in our hairbrush, it sends us into a frenzy. Just to be able to save the few remaining hair on our scalp, we try various tricks and sometimes even consult a specialist. We eat right and try to live a healthier and stress-free life. Hair transplant is the most popular way to reverse the loss that has been incurred by hair fall. However, PRP Hair Restoration Toronto is a viable option for those who don’t want to undergo the procedure. In this procedure, no follicles are either harvested or grafted into your scalp. Here is all you need to know about this procedure.
What is PRP?
The full form of PRP is platelet-rich Plasma. In this technique, your blood is used to stimulate hair growth and this technique has shown some great results. The blood is taken from you in the same way you donate blood. Then this blood is put in a centrifuge in order to separate your white and red blood cells from the platelet-rich plasma. After undergoing through the centrifugal force, what is left behind is the platelet-rich plasma. Then this plasma is injected into your scalp. Before that, the to-be injected area is locally frozen in order to reduce any pain.
One of the main reasons why this platelet-rich plasma is used is because it is the first responders of our blood. Whenever we have a wound, it clots the wound and is responsible for the regeneration of the skin. They are the ones which carry the growth and healing factors. Once it has been reintroduced into the scalp, it stimulates all the follicles to produce healthier hair strands.
Who should opt for hair restoration procedure?
PRP is the best option for those who are suffering from mild hair loss. It helps to slow down the hair loss and restores hair when you are just starting to see the impact of hair loss. The result can be seen in the form of thick, shiny and overall healthier hair. This treatment can also be done along with other treatments like Propecia and Rogaine, in order to stop the hair loss from progressing any further.
However, if you have been suffering from advanced hair loss, then hair transplant is the only way to treat your hair loss. But using PRP alongside hair transplant can produce better and more effective results from the newly transplanted hair. As there is only a number of follicles which are available for transplantation, the injection of plasma can stimulate hair growth.
How long does the procedure last?
The procedure is extremely short and lasts about half an hour. You can get it done during your lunchtime and get back to work the very same day.
