In recent years, PRP (platelet-rich plasma) has gained a lot of popularity as a hair restoration procedure. PRP is a straightforward procedure that involves drawing the patient’s own blood and centrifuging it to separate the plasma from the red blood cells and other blood components.
Important proteins and growth factors used in tissue repair and wound healing can be found in the plasma. PRP hair treatment Dubai is typically used as a hair restoration procedure since it encourages enhanced hair growth, both in terms of creating new hair and strengthening existing thinning hair. PRP contains a large number of stem cells, making hair renewal possible.
What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy?
The use of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is not a recent development. In addition to surgeries performed on a person’s jaw and face known as maxillofacial surgeries, PRP has been employed in the treatment of a variety of sports and skeletal ailments.
PRP therapy has now taken hold as the treatment of choice for people suffering from genetic and patterned hair loss because to the high success rates.
A concentrated form of platelets called platelet-rich plasma is taken from the client’s blood and injected into the scalp. In essence, platelets are needed for blood clotting and blood vessel healing.
In addition, they are a good source of growth factors, which are proteins that revitalize and stimulate the growth and division of hair follicles, thickening the hair. For as long as they are active, they also produce extra growth factors, allowing the creation of new hair cells.
PRP Hair Treatment Dubai Procedure
Let’s see how the PRP hair treatment works:
- A vein in the client’s hand is used to draw 15-20 ml of blood, which is then placed in a small cannula.
- Centrifugation is then used to separate the platelet component from the blood.
- With the aid of a tiny needle, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is then injected at the root of the hair on the scalp where hair loss is evident after the concentrated platelets are activated.
- The PRP hair treatment Dubai technique typically requires 6 to 8 monthly sessions to produce the desired results.
You can manage hair loss at a young age by following these tips.
No Drugs, Alcohol or Cigarettes
This whole thing may sound like the naturopathic doctor’s catchphrase at this point, but it still applies to practically everything, even PRP. Particularly, smoking has an impact on the results of PRP operations.
In addition to lowering the quantity of PRP you can produce from a given volume of blood, smoking impairs stem cells’ capacity to function due to the toxins in smoke.
The effects of smoking, particularly nicotine, carbon monoxide, and hydrogen cyanide, which are known to be hazardous, point to potential processes by which smoking can impede rapid wound healing.
Smokers experience more poor recovery after face-lift surgery than nonsmokers do, and they also experience more difficulties after breast surgery.
Following a PRP Injection, Should You Ice?
Contrary to what most websites and clinics advise, ice shouldn’t be applied following PRP injections. A key step in the healing process is inflammation. Ice lowers swelling and inflammation, which could interfere with the healing process.
Additionally, ice causes the blood arteries to constrict, reducing blood flow. Healing depends on blood flow. Avoiding ice after PRP injections is one of the safety measures.
Steer Clear of Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Medications (NSAID)
These medications may reduce the natural inflammatory response of stem cells. Acetaminophen (Tylenol, etc.) can be taken without risk.
How Long After PRP Injections Should You Rest?
After PRP injections, it’s crucial to rest and recuperate. It’s crucial to give the PRP injection enough time to work on the injured area. This must be allowed to happen in order for the PRP to be given time to implement.
Important proteins and growth factors are released by platelets to aid in tissue repair and regeneration. The release of growth factors from the platelets can take up to seven days. Exercise may dislodge and shift the PRP from the injection site, impairing healing and result.
For instance, if your kneecap tendon was injected, shortly after the injection running or hard weightlifting may cause the PRP to be forced out of the tendon. It is best to avoid exercise for the first two weeks while constantly monitoring pain and swelling, then gradually resume regular exercise.
Do You Qualify for PRP Hair Loss Treatment?
Younger people who treat their condition early, when hair follicles are still alive but have gone dormant, are excellent candidates for PRP for hair loss. Age, inadequate dietary intake, disease, and other factors can all cause hair follicle death.
PRP therapy may not be appropriate for you if you smoke a lot, take blood thinners, or have a medical condition like cancer, liver disease, diabetes, chronic infections, or a low platelet count.
