How PRP Treatment Rejuvenates Hair Growth

thumbnail preview

Hair can be an expression of one’s style and personality. It is no wonder that good hair days like any other spa day can drastically improve our mood and make us feel more confident. On the other hand, hair loss is something most of us dread and its effects can take a toll on us physically, socially, and emotionally.

With a deep understanding of how hair loss can affect both men and women at any age as a result of genetics, medical conditions, stress, hormonal changes, poor nutrition, or hairstyling practices, we present an opportunity to rejuvenate hair growth. At BROWZ, we make it possible for individuals to recover from hair loss by offering PRP treatment in Dubai.

Causes of Hair Loss

1. Genetics

Androgenetic alopecia, also known as male or female pattern baldness affects 50% of individuals. It is a progressive type of hair loss that often occurs after puberty and only gets worse or becomes permanent as you age witout proper treatment.

When some relatives are bald or balding, there is a likelihood for us to experience the same fate. At BROWZ, we recognize that genetics may be inescapable and almost inevitable, so we’ve pioneered ways to manage with cutting-edge technology.

2. Stress

Stress is an avoidable and usually a temporary cause of hair loss. It is characterised by the general thinning of hair following an emotional or physical shock. In some cases, individuals may have the irresistible urge to pull one’s own hair.

High stress levels can signal hair follicles to stop growing or trigger the body’s immune system to attack them. The good news is that this type of hair loss can be managed as you learn to keep stress levels under control.

3. Hormonal or Nutritional Deficiency

Imbalances in estrogen and testosterone, and an overactive thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism) affect hair growth. That said, hair loss is a common occurrence during pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, and in ageing individuals.

Hair loss can also be an indicator of nutritional deficiencies. When hair is not getting essential nutrients from a proper diet, the hair growth cycle is disrupted. Without sufficient energy to grow hair, follicles may begin to shrink or loosen.

4. Medical Conditions

Medical conditions, including cancer, depression, other diseases or infections, can lead to hair loss. This is because radiation treatment (chemotherapy) and medication with high doses of vitamin A trigger rapid hair loss during the anagen, or hair growth phase. Moreover, ringworms in the scalp may be the underlying cause of bald spots.

At BROWZ, we assess skin on the scalp and find possibilities for rejuvenating hair growth at a cellular level. We use advanced diagnostic tools to support the proper functioning of hair follicles.

5. Hairstyling Practices

Hairstyling practices involving chemical treatments, intense heat, and tight hairstyles like braids or cornrows can damage hair follicles. Hair loss may occur as a result of poor hair growth and breakage.

The best tip we can give for hair loss causes related to poor hairstyling practices is to give your scalp a chance to recover by going all-natural for some months. Take a break from chemical or intense heat treatments, and loosen your grip on your hair.

What is PRP Treatment for Hair Loss

Platelet-rich plasma or PRP treatment involves deriving platelets from the individual’s own blood and injecting them into areas with damaged cells and tissues to strengthen repair and regeneration. In the case of hair loss, PRP is injected in various areas of the scalp to stimulate and sustain healthy hair growth.

The Connection of Platelets and Hair

Platelets are found in blood and facilitate wound healing by secreting growth factors. Research has shown that a concentrated amount of platelets support the formation of healthy tissues through cellular regeneration.

At BROWZ, we rejuvenate hair growth by injecting PRP at the root of the hair follicles on the scalp. As an effect, platelets activate a population of cells with a vital role in hair growth.

How PRP Hair Treatment Works

PRP treatment is usually painless or tolerable at most since local anaesthesia is administered before the procedure. The 3-step process usually takes about an hour, after which individuals can resume regular activities with little to no downtime.

Step 01: Blood Extraction

Our trained staff will extract about 10 to 60 millilitres of blood from the individual’s arm.

Step 02: Obtain PRP from Blood

We obtain platelet-rich plasma or PRP from the individual’s blood sample by placing it in a centrifuge–a machine that rapidly spins to separate fluids of varying densities. In about 10 minutes or so, blood is divided into 3 distinct layers: platelet-rich plasma, platelet-poor plasma, and red blood cells.

Step 03: PRP Injection

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is drawn using a syringe and injected into targeted or damaged areas of the scalp.

Advantages and Disadvantages of PRP Hair Treatment

As with all treatments, PRP has its fair share of advantages and disadvantages.

Advantages of PRP Hair Treatment

1. Safe and Painless Procedure

We recommend PRP treatment in Dubai as a safe and painless procedure for individuals struggling with hair loss caused by androgenetic alopecia, high-stress levels, and those with thinning hair. We utilise PRP to equip functioning follicles to enhance hair growth and thickness.

2. Boost Effects of Hair Transplant

PRP treatment in Dubai can boost the effects of hair transplant as it promotes hair growth, reduces chances of scarring, and ultimately contributes to a successful graft rate.

3. Promotes Hormonal Hair Recovery

PRP hair treatment can help reverse the effects of hormonal imbalances or fluctuations of estrogen, testosterone, and/ or the thyroid.

4. Applicable to Most Adults

PRP hair treatment has delivered positive results in adults between the ages of 18 and 72.

5. Stimulates Healthy Tissue Regeneration

We offer PRP treatment in Dubai to stimulate healthy tissue regeneration at a cellular level. Our goal is to improve skin quality on the scalp and effectively rehabilitate damaged hair follicles.

Disadvantages of PRP Hair Treatment

1. Not Covered by Insurance

Because it is regarded more as a cosmetic procedure, PRP treatment in Dubai is not covered by insurance. Multiple sessions may also be needed to achieve desired effects.

2. Results Depend on Degree or Cause of Hair Loss

The results of PRP hair treatment greatly depend on the degree or cause of hair loss. It may not be as effective for individuals who are already completely bald or undergoing radiation treatment.

3. Potential Side Effects

PRP treatment in Dubai is generally a safe procedure since it utilises the individual’s own blood. While rare and temporary, potential side effects include itching, headache, swelling, and slight discolouration–redness/ bruising of the injected area. Consult your physician when symptoms persist after 5 days.

Dos and Don’ts of PRP Hair Treatment

To help you prepare and avoid risk factors of PRP treatment in Dubai, we’ve listed some dos and don’ts.

Dos of PRP Treatment in Dubai:

  • Consult your physician or doctor to assess if you are an eligible candidate for PRP treatment.
  • Wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner before PRP treatment to remove dirt and grease, and sterilise your scalp.
  • Eat a full meal and drink at least 2 glasses of water to reduce the risk of feeling dizzy or nauseous after blood extraction.
  • Use pH-balanced shampoo for 3 days after PRP treatment.
  • Avoid nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) within 48 hours of PRP therapy for 3 to 7 days following PRP treatment.
  • Increase water intake
  • Take a hot shower in the evening after PRP treatment to boost the effects.

Don’ts of PRP Treatment in Dubai:

  • Apply hair products like hair gel, hairspray, or serums 3 days before and after PRP treatment.
  • Colour your hair or get any treatment involving chemicals or intense heat including hot oil, perms, and Minoxidil (Rogaine) 3 days after PTP treatment.
  • Smoke or drink alcohol and caffeine 3 days before and after PRP treatment since these habits decrease platelet count and pose complications to proper healing.
  • Engage in vigorous exercises or swimming that may expose your scalp to excess moisture or cause skin to be dehydrated 2 days after PRP treatment.
  • Use or ingest blood-thinning agents such as vitamins A and E, garlic, ginkgo, flax seed, cod liver oil, and other fatty acids for at least 7 days following PRP treatment.

Effectiveness of PRP Hair Treatment

PRP treatment in Dubai for hair loss has garnered positive results and customer satisfaction from our clients. Early responders were able to notice their hair was thicker and denser 1 month after treatment. Most individuals see results after 2 months which peak in 3 months.
