Platelets are rich in growth factors which can induce growth of any cell, that may be hair root cells (papilla cells), or collagen cells (fibroblast)
PRP therapy is an emerging therapy for hair loss. PRP treatment triggers natural hair growth & maintains it by increasing blood supply to the hair follicles & increases the thickness of the hair.

Steps 2:- After 10 mins in the centrifuge, your blood is separated into three layers.
• Platelet Poor Plasma
• Platelet Rich Plasma
• Red Blood Cells
Steps 3:- Scalp is cleaned with antiseptic solutions. Just before therapy, a local anaesthesia may be given to make it compete painless. Than PRP is injected into the deep skin at hair roots by multiple pricks. This therapy is given every month for 4-6 months. A maintenance therapy can be taken every 3-6 months.

12) PRP for Anti-Aging Process.
During the ageing process, metabolism and hormone slow down making us fatter and more tired, our collagen production also slows down leading to wrinkles and cellulite. As a Homeopathic Doctor, there is a huge variety of amazing treatments and supplements that can help improve your health and really help reverse the signs of ageing but for those unfamiliar with a natural mode of medicine, it might feel like units of Botox or a facelift are your only options when it comes to combating aging. In this blog, I wanted to introduce one of the many natural treatments that have been proven to actually increase your natural production of collagen and works with your body not against it to help rejuvenate your skin and keep you looking fabulous. The first treatment I would like to discuss is PRP.
• So what is PRP? PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma and has been used not only for aesthetic procedures but also for pain management treatments. The idea behind PRP is to use the natural components found in your blood, in this case, the plasma, to help stimulate your body’s own ability to heal. There are many different ways in which PRP can be used aesthetically including Microneedling Facials as well as underneath the skin using a Microcannula.
PRP Therapy for Skin
A small amount of blood is drawn from you and placed in a sterile tube that is then spun down using a centrifuge. The centrifuge allows the components of your blood to separate. The red and white blood cells are divided into the platelets and the plasma. Once centrifuged, the plasma contains the highest concentration of platelets and is called platelet-rich plasma, PRP. The PRP is then placed or injected back into the skin and acts as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow as well as regenerates tissue thus leading to tightening of the skin. This skin tightening helps soften the appearance of wrinkles, creating a smoother skin texture and tone. The procedure itself is quick taking between 15-30 minutes and is relatively painless and requires no post-procedure care or time off. Possible side effects include mild swelling, redness or bruising that typically fade within 1-3 days. The great benefit of using PRP is that because it comes from your blood it reduces your risk of reacting negatively to the procedure. This makes the procedure extremely safe but also very effective.
