Every hair grows in a continuous cycle with 4 stages:
- Growth (Anagen)
- Transition (Catagen)
- Resting (Telogen)
- Shedding (Exogen)
In a normal cycle and healthy hair, the growth stage lasts about 3-6 years. In unhealthy situation, this lasts shorter. It means more hair is going through resting or shedding stages. Then we experience less hair growth and more hair loss. But remember losing 100 hairs per day is normal.
PRP is a treatment that is based on growth factors which naturally present in your own blood. In this process, a small amount of blood is taken from the client and then centrifuged to separate red cells and granulocytes from the plasma.
PRP contains vital growth factors such as Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF), Transforming Growth Factor group (TGF), Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF), Fibre blast and Growth Factor (FGF).
The plasma is then collected into a syringe to be used for the PRP treatment. This procedure is effective in preventing hair loss for men, women and for treating male pattern baldness and female pattern too. It can increase hair count, thickness of hair and elevates the average phase of the hair growth cycle.
