Hair regrowth treatment in Bangalore

Hair Loss is a distressing issue. Many times patients seek treatments which help in hair restoration. Most of the topical treatments are available in the market for hair fall reduction and increasing the growth of hair. But the miniaturised hair follicles need stimulation to improve the hair volume especially over temples or on the crown. The pitfall of using traditional treatments for hair regrowth is that they increase hair volume upto 40% only. 

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is gaining popularity all over the world. The reason is that it is derived from one's own blood and is safe to use. It utilises the growth potential of platelets which are a storehouse of growth factors. PRP can be used in hair loss treatment to improve the volume, density and quality of hair. PRF therapy is an advanced version of PRP therapy . Platelets contain proteins that trigger growth signals for cells. PRP contains high platelet concentration which leads to improved hair growth. Not only the concentration but the intactness of platelets is equally important for best results. That is what decides the results of PRP treatment for hair regrowth.

Though PRP is natural, anticoagulants are added to prevent clotting. The blood is also subjected to repeated centrifugation to obtain plasma. This compromises the quality of platelets and also compromises the results. Also non standardized PRP kits are used which compromise the efficacy . To prevent these issues , We introduce Platelet rich fibrin (PRF) in Bangalore. PRF is also called autologous conditioned plasma. PRF does not require any anti-clotting agents and it is 100% autologous in nature.

Platelets are derived from the PRP which are then activated with calcium chloride to increase thrombocyte activity. PRF contains higher platelet concentration, intact platelets and active growth factors that help in hair regrowth. PRF is injected into the scalp dermis where it revitalizes the miniaturizing hair follicles and helps them to grow to their full potential. 

What is the principle of PRP and PRF treatment?

The growth potential of the stem cells found in dermal papilla is the answer to regrowth of miniaturizing hair follicles. The aim of regenerative medicine is to instigate these stem cells to continue to multiply and divide to form new hair fibers. The platelets have an immense quantity of growth factors . There are a large number of commercially available kits for PRP and Growth factors containing systems. They all vary in collection volume, preparation properties as well. The process for preparation of PRP involves multiple centrifugation steps which sometimes disrupt the morphology of platelets. To avoid these pitfalls, we use 

Platelet rich fibrin (PRF) treatment at Dr. Divya's Skin and Hair Solutions Clinic in Bangalore: In centres using PRP normally the following steps are followed. 

  1. Blood is collected in centrifugation tubes which vary from centre to centre. 

  2. An anticoagulant is added to present spontaneous clotting. 

  3. Then the whole blood is centrifuged to separate the red blood cells followed by centrifugation to concentrate platelets. 

  4. Many centres add activators like thrombin or calcium chloride to cause immediate release of growth factors. 

  5. There is no evidence to prove that this is beneficial or not. 

  6. The platelets get activated by exposure to dermal collagen and thrombin.

  7. Active growth secretion begins within 10 minutes and more than 95% of growth factors are released within one hour.

  8. In PRF, no activator or anticoagulant is added and the growth factors are secreted upto 10 days after procedure.

Mechanism of PRF for hair growth

The most well-known physiological role of platelets is the control of hemorrhage, where they accumulate at tissue injury sites and damaged blood vessels. These events are instigated by the expression of integrins and selections that stimulate platelet adhesion and aggregation. This process is further aggravated by damaged endothelium, with exposed collagen and other subendothelial matrix proteins prompting profound platelet activation

The most common method to extract PRP is one such treatment, with PRF being a variant of PRP that has more growth factors. PRF is used for faster recovery and less downtime after surgery or other medical procedures.

What are the benefits of Platelet rich fibrin treatment for hair regrowth?

PRF treatment helps in revitalising the dying hair follicles and increases their growth upto their potential. It helps in making your existing hair denser and more lustrous. PRF helps in improving the lustre of hair and improves the frizziness. We routinely use PRF for improving the appearance of dull hair. All of this can be achieved by using a completely safe and 100% natural modality of hair regrowth.

What is the cost difference between regular PRP and PRF?

PRF is comparable to the cost of regular PRP as the only difference is that we use a standard, international Arthrex PRF kit compared to random test tubes used in regular PRP. PRP uses silica coated Blood collection tubes which have been found to be harmful for human consumption. We use human grade Arthrex Kits which are completely bio compatible for use on the human scalp and pose no long term side effects to health.

What is the difference in procedure between PRP and PRF?

  • In PRF, the entire process finishes in 20 to 25 minutes as the liquid clot generated has to be used immediately for best results. There is no burning sensation as compared to normal PRP as there is no anticoagulant used for preparation.

You should opt for advanced PRF treatment for hair regrowth in Bangalore. In case of any queries about PRF treatment for hair regrowth, Please contact us at 9620638388/ 008049565612 or email us at info@drdivyasharma.com
