Hair loss is an unavoidable nightmare that all men and women have to live through. Thinning of hair or loss of hair may also interfere with self-confidence. Until recently thought of as a fragment of science fiction, regenerative medication has now become a reality with treatments like PRP Therapy Toronto. The field of cosmetic surgery is ever so dynamic, which now uses the body’s own cells to encourage and support healing and restoration of hair and skin rejuvenation. If you’ve been considering a non-surgical option for treating your hair loss, then here is all you need to know about this new innovation which is increasingly becoming a popular option of hair loss treatment.

What is PRP Treatment?

With the advancement in medical science, our understanding of how the healing process of the body works becomes better and better. This understanding has been used in the innovation of PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy which is increasingly being used to stimulate hair, scalp and skin. Backed by almost two decades of research, many doctors have successfully been able to use PRP for skin and wound healing. It has also had astounding success in oral surgery, neurosurgery, sports medicine and orthopaedics.

PRP therapy is now the cutting edge technology present in the field for hair loss. It has emerged as one of the greatest breakthroughs in the technology for hair loss in recent years. It is a simple scientifically proven technique which promotes hair growth and healing in the scalp and hair follicles. The procedure is an outpatient one and takes about half an hour to perform in the comfort of the clinic.

To perform the procedure a small amount of blood is drawn from you, in the same way as it is drawn for a routine check-up. This blood is then run through a centrifuge at a high speed to separate the platelets and other blood components which make up the PRP. After the separation, it is then injected into the scalp by the doctor or the nurse with the help of ultra-fine needles at an interval of 1 centimetre.

How effective is the therapy?

The Platelets have been chosen to do this as they not only release growth hormones but are also responsible for the healing process in the body. It enriches the scalp and hair follicles to increase the thickness and fullness of hair. The treatment also encourages inactive or newly implanted hair follicles and makes them more active and guides them towards the growing phase. As platelet-rich plasma is derived from your blood, there is no need to worry about any infection, allergic reaction, rejection by the body or any other complication.
