Always use organic, natural hair products!
Standard shampoos and conditioners contain gluten, sulfates, and many chemicals that can damage hair and inhibit future growth.
Choose products that are ‘nontoxic’. PRP isn’t for everyone.
Antiinflammatory medications block platelet activity so these may be discontinued for a few weeks before PRP.
Whenever clotting problems or who are currently on ‘anticoagulation’ therapy shouldn’t undergo this procedure, patients who are diagnosed with low platelet syndromes, chronic liver disease. Those who smoke heavily and use alcohol are not ideal candidates for the procedure. You see, julie sent along an update via Julie cam, about how she is feeling after her first chemotherapy treatment. She talks about plenty of aftereffect she is dealing with, and her first experience with hair loss. Now look. It’s exciting to be able to offer patients an affordable and effective alternative to hair transplantation. Write Now pay attention please. However in combination with PRP, a synergistic effect is demonstrated, notes Dr, In my experience, Rogaine alone has not been very effective in restoring hair loss.
Up to now, hair loss is treated with medications like Rogaine and Propecia, and hair transplantation. Low energy laser therapy like LaserCap has shown benefit in stimulating and maintaining hair growth. Platelets are important for blood clotting being that they release a cascade of chemical factors which stimulate clot formation when tissue was injured. Platelets also contain growth factors which are released at areas of injury to repair damaged tissues. Blood consists of only 6percentage platelets. Platelet rich plasma therapy poses no risk for allergies, hypersensitivity or reactions to foreign bodies since the platelets are derived from the patient’s own blood. Anyway, patients that have undergone PRP therapy have observed enhanced hair growth and thickness within ’36’ months. Where hair follicles are still present, PRP can restore the hairs to their original size and improve hair thinning. Hair loss is caused most commonly by androgenetic or hereditary alopecia which leads to miniaturization of the hair follicle and the result is thinning of the hair. That is interesting. However in men, the miniaturization frequently progresses to complete loss of the hair follicles, In women, complete baldness rarely occurs.
PRP works best in women or in younger men who have just started to notice thinning of their hair.
The scalp may tingle for a few hours and swelling can be seen for up to 4 days.
Platelets are consequently concentrated by centrifugation of the blood. When injected back into the patient, the large numbers of platelets promote healing while accelerating the rate and degree of regeneration. PRP therapy requires 60 blood mL to be drawn from the patient’s arm. Did you know that the scalp is numbed with local anesthesia and the platelet rich plasma is placed into the scalp through multiple tiny injections. By the way, the purpose is to stimulate inactive hair follicles into an active growth phase.
