Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP treatment is a non-surgical process that is used in the restoration of hair. In this treatment person’s own blood is used to stimulate the natural hair growth. Human blood is made of four components – red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma, and platelets. The plasma in our blood contains special factors or proteins that help to clot the blood. This protein also helps in the growth of hair. Doctors/Researchers have introduced PRP hair treatment in Chicago wherein plasma is isolated from the blood and used for hair treatment.
How it works?
Chicago PRP hair treatment is safer than hair transplant and any other similar hair care procedure. In this procedure, the doctor draws blood from your body (like a regular sample is drawn for a blood test). The blood is placed in a centrifuge and spun to separate the plasma. Latter the concentrated blood components that are rich in the growth are injected into the bald scalp of a person. The whole treatment will not take time more than 20 minutes. PRP hair treatment in Chicago is not only used for hair loss but for many other procedures like tendon injuries, acute injuries, post surgical repairs, and Osteoarthritis.
For Chicago PRP hair treatment, you don’t need any anesthetic medicine, you will feel mild sensation on the scalp when a doctor will treat you with micro needles. It is the latest therapy in the field of hair restoration. It is a promising treatment for people who are suffering from hair loss.
PRP cost and side effects
In a city like Chicago, PRP treatment for hair loss costs anywhere between $900 to 2,500 for a set of three treatments. In the PRP treatment, injections are involved, so some people can feel little pain or mild swelling. PRP treatment is autologous, it contains a substance coming directly from the patient’s own body; this reduces the risks of allergies and reactions.
