Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is a novel technique of treatment in which patient`s own blood is collected and subjected to a special process known as centrifugation after which the platelet rich plasma is injected back to the same patient.
The growth factors present in PRP have rejuvenating properties. When injected in the scalp, they stimulate the hair follicles and thereby increase the hair growth. When injected in the skin, they stimulate neo- collagenesis leading to improvement in skin texture and appearance.
The main advantage of the procedure is that since PRP is derived from patient`s own blood, there is hardly any chance of major adverse effects. When done in an accurate and scientific way, PRP stands to be the most safe and effective therapy for skin and hair rejuvenation.
