PRP hair transplant is not a correct terminology, though, the PRP treatment before and/or after hair transplant operation is highly recommended.
PRP is the abbreviation for Platelet Rich Plasma. It can be both a standalone implementation, and implemented before, during, or after a hair transplant. PRP is the enriched blood plasma. Your doctor withdraws a small amount of your blood, and separate the platelets in a centrifuge. The platelets are then enriched and injected into your scalp.
This can be an individual treatment for hair loss. Although, there are not any comprehensive studies that prove that PRP is entirely beneficial before and after a hair transplant, many hair transplant surgeons and specialists recommend it because it has benefits on the scalp, blood flow, and hair loss.
They also consider it safe. Patients who had PRP during their hair transplant often record that they found it worth it. It can speed up the healing period. PRP is particularly effective in hereditary male pattern hair loss. When used in conjunction with hair transplant surgery, it has a positive effect on the result. The results of PRP are also natural.
Hair PRP therapy is a non-surgical treatment. It is comfortable for the patient causing no side effects and minor discomfort. It does not cause allergic reactions, and is easy to implement. Taking hair PRP along with hair transplant is a great idea because then you can also save time, be in a safe environment (sanitized surgery), and perhaps it will be more cost effective.
The growth factors in PRP can stimulate your hair growth, and is good for those who are not suitable for hair transplant surgery, and yet, it is best to ask your surgeon if you are suitable for PRP. Having PRP alone does not restrict your activities.
We hope that the new research will provide more insight into how effective hair PRP is on certain types of hair loss.
