Platelet-rich plasma(PRP) Therapy

PRP is a technique where the patient’s whole blood is collected, and following differential centrifugation, plasma rich in platelets is harvested. The platelets collected in PRP release growth factors and other cytokines like platelet-derived growth factor, transforming growth factor-beta, fibroblast growth factors, vascular endothelial growth factor, epidermal growth factor, and interleukin B. PRP treatment is suitable for the following conditions:
  1. Hairloss
  2. Acne scars
  3. Facial rejuvenation


 PRP is a relatively safe procedure. Some of the short term complications can be:
  1. Pain at the site of injection;
  2. Transient headache
  3. Heaviness
  4. Swelling, redness
  5. Infection
  6. Allergic reaction
  7. Temporary skin discoloration
Minimum four to six sessions are required at the gap of 3-4 weeks for visible good results.
