Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Transplant
For some of us who are always on the search for ways to promote hair growth or solutions to hair loss etc., more than once we would come across the topic about hair transplant, and not just any kind of hair transplant, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) hair transplant. As foreign as it sounds, this might just be your next solution to balding, hair loss and hair thinning problems. So read on to know more about PRP.
What is PRP?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a medical procedure/treatment that enhances tissue repair and healing. PRP is not something new, in fact it is widely used in many surgical specialties including oral surgery, neurosurgery as well as plastic and cosmetic surgery. When talking about hair restoration, PRP is performed for promoting hair growth by naturally stimulating the hair follicles with active growth factors that are found in the PRP. Patients will expect to see an increase in the number of hair and hair density 2 to 3 months after the procedure, hence achieving a life-long dream of having thick and full-looking hair.
How does it work?
Before the procedure, PRP is extracted from the blood by treating the blood in a centrifuge, usually the source of the blood is from the patient itself. Depending on the clinic, some may treat the extracted PRP in a special system to eliminate unnecessary proteins and increase the concentration of the platelets to almost 3 times the normal concentration in blood. Once the PRP is ready, it is injected into the patient’s scalp for multiple times – either over the entire head or focusing on specific areas only – by using a micro needle. A single session usually lasts about 60 minutes, but when combined with hair transplant the session may last for a longer time. For more information about hair transplant, check out our blog at http://toppikmalaysia.com/blog/.
Who is it for?
PRP is suitable for anyone who has been experiencing balding, hair loss and hair thinning for a very long time. The procedure can be done with or without surgery. For patients who are medically unfit for surgery, this is a great option for them. In other cases, patients who are going for surgical hair transplant can choose to have PRP included to boost the results of hair growth and to help with scalp healing process after the transplantation. Although PRP is medically proven to be successful, the results vary from people to people, some may even need more sessions to achieve the desired results.
Is there any side effects to be aware of?
PRP is immunological neutral since it is extracted from the patient’s blood itself. Rest assured patients are safe from allergic, hypersensitivity and foreign-body immunologic reactions. During the procedure itself, patients may experience some pain, pinpoint bleeding and redness at the injected areas. After the procedure, patients may experience a feeling of “fullness” or “tightness” in the scalp which last up to a day or two after the procedure.
Are there other options?
Of course, PRP may not be everyone’s cup of tea, especially those who have a fear of medical procedures. The fact about post-hair transplantation recovery period must also be taken into consideration. A complete recovery usually takes about 2 months, and for achieving the full results will take at least another year. However, here is another great solution to those who just do not have the time and want instant results within a snap of a finger: Toppik Hair Building Fibers, instantly revitalizing your whole appearance and self-esteem by achieving thicker and fuller looking head in less than 30 seconds! Its easy application with minimum fuss makes Toppik Hair Building Fibers a product that’s favoured by many. Don’t miss out, currently Toppik Hair Building Fibers is offering free shipping for online orders.

Promising Hair Loss Treatments and Cures 2017
The search for the best hair loss treatment and cure is never ending. People are losing hair on a daily basis all around the world. It is found that 70% of men and 40% of women suffer from genetically caused hair loss (androgenic alopecia) in their lifetime. Since a huge percentage of the population has this issue, a permanent cure would be a great relief to the world. A scientific breakthrough would make quite a profit to those who first claims the patent for their innovation.
In this global day and age, pharmaceutical companies and researchers are constantly coming up with options. It won’t be long before the ideal solution prevails and the world’s issue of hair loss can be diminished. Here are a few possible hair treatment options, where the positives and negatives are discussed.
1. Stem Cells
Hair transplantation as we know today involves harvesting hair from the back of the scalp to be transplanted to the balding areas. There is a disadvantage to this, as there are limitations to the number of hairs that can be harvested before the area appears thin. Therefore, growing stem cells could solve that problem. By growing dermal papilla cells, hair is said to be cloned or multiplied to provide an unlimited source of hair for transplantation. It would not be restricted to only existing hair follicles. Recent research has shown that this method can be implemented in the future, as seen from the experiments of growing human hair on the skin of mice, when stem cells were grafted onto mice skin. As this is only small-scale, future research would be focused on reproducing the same favourable results in human trials. If this proves to be successful, it could transform a person from completely bald to a head full of hair.
2. New Drugs
Drugs are continuously being formulated to becoming the optimum hair growth medicine. Every opportunity is not ignored, as drugs usually used for other illnesses such as cancer are now being studied for other possible uses, including curing hair loss. A new category of medicine is discovered, called JAK inhibitors. Also known as Janus kinase inhibitors, these molecules has uses of stopping and preventing inflammation. Studies have been made on two specific drugs, Tofacitinib and Ruxolitinib, which resulted in very positive findings. Almost all patients who were treated with the drug experienced seemingly miraculous hair regrowth within months. Unfortunately, there were certain side effects after prolonged use of these drugs, such as headaches, hypertension, respiratory infections, and an increase in liver toxins. Not only that, hair loss continued to occur once treatment was stopped.
Many consumers would be concerned with the safety of these drugs, and whether such drugs would be approved by health ministries. However, further research is currently underway, and it would not be long before the drugs become perfectly developed, in order to take a big step towards the cure of hair loss.
3. “Vampire Treatment”
Intriguingly enough, the term vampire is used because the cure is extracted from the patient’s own blood. Also known as platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy, it is seen to play a very significant role in treatment. Once blood is drawn from the body, it is processed and modified to be injected to the scalp. The new active blood flow energises the scalp, restoring hair growth. The treatment can also be combined with other medications and procedures.
All these promising discoveries are indeed encouraging quicker and more effective ways of solving hair loss and balding. Although they are still under research and are not yet practised commercially, they open doors to the world in determining the ultimate cure to hair loss. Readers are advised to consult a health professional before attempting new treatments.
