Hair loss happens to be one of the biggest concerns for both males and females across the globe. There are various causes of hair loss, including but not limited to genetic reasons, aging, cancer treatment, pregnancy, hormonal imbalance, and stressors. Excessive hair loss not only impacts one’s appearance but their confidence and morale as well. People feel more conscious of how they look and try different methods to prevent hair loss, but not all these methods are effective. Platelet-rich plasma, commonly known as PRP, is one of the most effective treatments that can help regenerate hair. A huge number of people get PRP in Dubai due to its abundant benefits.
Platelets are made up of proteins, the essential building block in the body, while plasma plays a key role in taking protein, hormones, and nutrients to the body. PRP treatment combines the properties of both ‘Platelet’ and ‘Plasma’ to enhance the aesthetic feature and hair growth. It is a rapidly progressing, non-surgical hair treatment that has also proven to be useful in treating several skin issues. PRP hair treatment includes injecting blood plasma enriched with platelets into the target areas of the scalp. This results in the growth of natural hair as the blood supply to the hair follicle is increased. It also improves the thickness of hair.

The ideal candidates for PRP treatment are those who are dealing with excessive hair loss. Those with male/female pattern baldness, detectable hair follicles, and alopecia areata, are also suitable candidates for this treatment. In addition, people with certain skin issues can also get this treatment. However, those suffering from the following medical conditions are advised against getting PRP treatment:
This step involves analyzing the cause of the problem. The doctor will study the patient’s medical history to ensure they are the right candidate for this treatment. Furthermore, the hair PRP results will also be discussed during this session. It also allows the patient to voice their concerns about any potential side effects and other such issues, such as the cost of the PRP hair treatment.
The patient is advised to follow pre-procedural guidelines to prepare for the PRP treatment. These include avoiding blood-thinning medications as they can impact the treatment. Patients are advised against smoking and consumption of alcohol. Furthermore, they are asked to stop taking beta-blocker medication. The doctor may also prescribe them certain medications the patient is required to take regularly.
The entire treatment is divided into three main steps, apart from the initial consultation. Since it doesn’t involve surgical cuts, there’s no requirement to administer anesthesia. The procedure remains fairly painless without administering it.
The first step is drawing blood from the arm and putting it into a centrifuge. Then, the centrifuge separates it into three different layers; red blood cells, platelet-poor, and platelet-rich. This step takes around 10 minutes. The third and final step is drawing PRP and injecting it into the treatment site.
After getting plasma hair treatment, you will have to follow the post-treatment guidelines recommended by your doctor to ensure the outcome meets your expectations. These guidelines include keeping yourself hydrated and not letting your feet get wet for a minimum of 3 hours. Also, avoid touching the scalp (treatment site) for 8 hours at least. Do not rub ice on the injected area to soothe swelling or soreness. Doctors also advise against using hair products for 6 hours post-treatment. Swimming, extensive exercise, and visiting a sauna are also not recommended for at least a couple of days.

The former is a non-surgical procedure, while the latter involves surgery. This is why many people prefer PRP.
