Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
Is hair loss bothering you? Are you searching for a solution that might help in boosting your hair growth and restore your thick, dense hair naturally? Then you need to consider PRP therapy for your hair.
The Hair Loss Clinic presents Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy that accelerates hair growth immensely and effectively on patients hailing from all ethnicities. PRP is not a procedure that will simply restore hair growth temporarily, it is a procedure that has a long-term impact on stimulating your hair growth with a positive outcome.
What Is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy?
Our body contains Platelets – Platelets are a component of blood, along with red and white blood cells. When a person sustains a cut or wound, the platelets are some of the body’s “first responders” that arrive to stop the bleeding and promote healing.
PRP therapy was originally designed by doctors to accelerate the healing process in the patient’s body. But with time, medical science has now proven that this therapy can also be used to restore hair growth for patients who are facing hair loss.
PRP therapy involves drawing out blood from the patient’s, purifying it and extracting Platelet rich plasma and injecting it in the scalp. This gives the hair follicles concentrated growth factors and stimulates hair growth.

At The Hair Loss Clinic, we have listed down some criteria which could make you a fit candidate for PRP Therapy:
What To Expect At The Consultation?
During the first visit, our doctor will obtain detailed medical history and history of any hair treatment taken so far. The hair loss will be graded. Medical and surgical treatment options will be discussed. If you are the right candidate for PRP Therapy, you will be explained the procedure again. An approximate number of sessions required will be told to you. When you agree for the treatment, the procedure will be scheduled and the doctor may order some blood tests if necessary.

What Happens During The PRP Therapy Session?
There are three steps involved in a PRP Therapy session.
Step 1: The doctor at The Hair Loss Clinic will draw blood from the patient’s arm.
Step 2: The blood will be placed on a Centrifuge and purified. The purification process removes White Blood Cells and Red Blood Cells, leaving behind Plasma Rich with Platelets.
Step 3: The Platelet rich plasma is then injected into the targeted areas on the patient’s scalp.
The entire process may take about 1 hour, and usually 3-4 sessions may be necessary for best results.
What Care Must Be Taken After The Process?
There is no extra care that the person has to undertake after the process. The doctor might prescribe certain medicated shampoos and conditioners along with some other hair care products which will help to speed up and stimulate the results of the process even more.
Dr Balvant Arora believes in taking utmost care of nutrition and supplements that help in increasing and maintaining hair growth. Taking the necessary steps to maintain the nutrition and supplements along with PRP Therapy will certainly help in the long run.
