What is the method for PRP treatment in Chennai?

1. Blood is drawn out (20ml – 50ml) from the patient’s body using a butterfly needle in a small tube.

2. The tube that contains blood is put into a machine called Centrifuge. Centrifuge rotates the blood tube in a permanent axis to separate the blood components according to their density. This Centrifuge process takes 10 minutes to complete. And once it’s done the different layers of blood can be seen. The blood is separated into 3 layers:

  • Red Blood Cells (Base Layer)
  • White Blood Cells & Platelets (Centre Layer)
  • Platelets Rich Plasma (Top Layer)

3. Then the Platelets Rich Plasma (PRP) layer is filled into a syringe and is injected in the areas where the bald patches appear for the scalp to be treated and to stop hair fall.

 

After this treatment, a Derma Roller is used. Derma Roller is a small piece of equipment with tiny pointed needles. It is used on the hair scalp area where previously PRP injections were used, to prompt platelet flow. 

 

A patient might also be recommended for undergoing a Low-level Laser Therapy (LLLT) by the Doctor. LLLT is a machine that emits low powered lesser on the head. This process typically takes 20 - 40 minutes to complete. LLLT prompt healing and enhances cell function. 

 

Derma roller at first is used by the doctor on the patient’s head. After that, the patient has to use the roller by his/her ownat home. This entire process of PRP treatment takes 60 – 90 minutes. The patient can continue his/her work after a few hours.

What to expect 2 months after hair transplant?

Asked anonymously on 3rd August, 2022 at 3:42 pm
Hi, 

If you are talking about results after hair transplant,then in that case you need to wait. After 2 months of hair transplant, transplanted  hair would be in shedding phase which would continue upto three or three and a half month. 
So you would not be able to see much difference in your hairloss condition. But at that period you should continue with your regular medication to get the good results.

When can i sleep on my side after hair transplant?

Asked anonymously on 3rd August, 2022 at 3:22 pm
Hi, 
If your temple area also have been created while your hair transplant, in that case you need to be a little cautious about your sleeping patterns. You should try to sleep on your back for atleast 8-10 days, you should avoid to sleep on your chest or on side. Since in this period hair grafts tend to be fragile. So after 10-12 days of hair transplant you can start sleeping on your side.
