PRP For Hair Loss: Process and It's Side Effects

One of the best ways to promote hair growth is a combination of Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy injections for hair loss and laser phototherapy from devices such as Theradome’s PRO LH80 helmet.

What is PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy?

It is possible to harvest from the bloodstream of every human being. This simple process includes extracting plasma from a patient’s blood and then using that PRP to help with healing injured areas of the body. PRP cells contain stem cells, which are proving to be extremely beneficial for repairing and reversing inflammatory diseases. Because of the restorative properties of PRP, it is becoming a popular in-clinic procedure to naturally promote quick healing.

Some applications for PRP include orthopaedics, sports medicine, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, dermatology, and cosmetic surgery. Plastic surgery procedures use PRP to promote soft tissue recovery. Dermatologists use platelet rich plasma therapy when treating active acne, scar revision, and wrinkles.

One of the most exciting new discoveries of PRP’s use is in treating hair loss. By injecting PRP into the scalp of patients, the process has been proven to improve hair follicle function and promote new hair growth. A significant reduction in hair loss accompanied by an augmentation of hair density was also observed.

For both males and females, treating androgenetic alopecia with PRP is a simple, feasible, and natural therapeutic tool for fighting hair loss. It has high overall patient satisfaction and tolerance without any adverse side effects.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Process For Hair Loss

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy treatment for hair loss involves using your own blood to stimulate hair follicles, promote hair regrowth, and improve the overall health of your scalp. Here are the processes involved in PRP therapy:

Step 1: Your blood will be drawn typically from your arm and then put into a centrifuge. It is a machine that spins at a high speed and separates the blood into its different components. The platelets and plasma will be concentrated into PRP.

Step 2: The blood is separated into three layers: platelet-poor plasma, platelet-rich-plasma and red blood cells. The carefully separated PRP will contain a high concentration of platelets, growth factors, and other beneficial proteins.

Step 3: The PRP Injection is then drawn and then injected into areas of the scalp that need increased hair growth. The PRP stimulates hair follicles, promotes blood flow, and encourages the growth phase of the hair cycle.

PRP Therapy for Hair Loss Side Effects

Although platelet rich plasma treatment for hair loss treatment is generally considered safe, there are minimal side effects. Since PRP uses your own blood components, the risk of allergic reactions or infections is very low. However, like any other medical procedure, there can be some side effects.

Mild Discomfort: It is quite common to experience some degree of discomfort, swelling, or tenderness at the injection sites immediately after the procedure. This usually subsides within a day or two.

Bruising: Bruising at the injection sites may occur, but it is usually mild and temporary.

Itching and redness: Some individuals may also experience mild itching or redness at the injection sites. However, this usually goes away on its own and is not typically a cause for concern.

Infection: There is always a slight chance of infection at the injection sites.

Hair Shedding: Some individuals may also experience temporary hair shedding in the weeks following Platelet-rich plasma therapy. This is often a sign that new hair growth is beginning as the treatment stimulates the hair follicles. The lost hair usually grows thicker and healthier over time.

Combining Platelet Rich Plasma and Laser Phototherapy

Many clinical physicians report positive results when combining PRP injections with a regular regimen of laser phototherapy. Clinical studies show a positive, synergetic relationship between both LPT and PRP. LPT reduces inflammation. This is a natural reaction for patients who receive a series of PRP injections into the scalp. Professional clinics that treat hair loss with platelet rich plasma injections offer them along with LPT to optimize hair restoration treatment.

It's so popular that dermatologists are increasingly lauding the benefits they see of PRP and LPT combined treatments. Theradome has partnered with the largest medical equipment supplier in the country, Eclipse Aesthetics, to put the LH80 PRO helmet into the hands of more clinicians.

Why Theradome?

Theradome’s PRO LH80 Laser Hair Growth Device is designed specifically to be used for treatments such as these. Its proprietary laser technology uses 80 medical-grade laser diodes that create photo-bio stimulation of hair follicles. These helmets also come with a variety of personal touches that patients testify to being convenient. This includes built-in speakers, a micro-USB port, and foam pads for comfort.

Platelet rich plasma injections and LPT are both clinically effective, powerful tools for fighting thinning hair and hair loss. They are proven to increase hair density, minimize shedding and stimulate hair regrowth by using natural medical alternatives that cause no harm to human health. By combining the healing, regenerative capabilities of Platelet Rich Plasma with Laser Phototherapy, this optimum PRP/LPT hair restoration treatment is well on its way to becoming the most powerful and effective tool today for fighting hair loss.
