Hair loss is a gradual process that will be noticeable to the point of concern after a few months. Similarly, a few blemishes on the skin will go unnoticed until it becomes too much to handle. There are remedies to prevent these. Consult a trichologist or a dermatologist for consultation on hair treatment options.
In the new era, the lifestyle and quality of life, although seemingly more effortless, are more complex. Climate change has taken its toll on the kind of air we breathe, the harsh sun, the fast-food culture, our sleeping habits everything has negatively impacted our health.
Our skin and hair are a reflection of our health condition. If your skin is seemingly dull with many acne and pimples, it is a sign of poor metabolism and hormonal imbalance. Similarly, if you are experiencing a change in the appearance of your hair, it can be a sign of an underlying disease.
Usually, people undermine these symptoms and approach a doctor only when the change is distinctly noticeable. It is only then that the specialist will give you the best consult.
Dr. Archit Aggarwal, a skin specialist in Faridabad, is also the founder of KDC Clinic for skin and hair clinic in Faridabad. He says that, although there are a lot of treatment options available to improve the appearance of your skin and hair, it can help only to a certain extent. Maintaining a good diet and exercise routine is what will permanently support the treatments that you take to enhance your skin and hair.
PRP for Skin
There are various treatment options for making your skin supple and spotless.
Every good dermatologist including Dr. Archit Aggarwal will have the following treatment facilities at their clinic.
You may choose to undergo
- laser treatments for pigment removals.
- Dermabrasions for skin polishing.
- Microdermabrasion for deep skin polishing
- Chemical peels
- Non-surgical facelifts
- Botox fillers
While they all work wonders to improve your appearance, we need to note that most use chemicals and other processes that could have a side reaction.
While that is debatable, what you can be sure of, is that the PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatment is a safe treatment procedure to follow.
PRP treatment is used not only for skin but also for treating hair loss, thinning hair, or even catalyzing growth post hair transplant.
How is PRP prepared?
At KDC Clinic, the doctors, depending upon where the PRP is to be injected, will extract only the required amount of patients’ blood.
The blood is then placed in a centrifuge that spins at a very high speed. During the spin cycle, the components of the blood begin to segregate. Once the segregation is complete, the doctor or the assistant will fill up the separated platelet plasma in injections.
PRP Treatment for Skin
Platelet-rich plasma has growth and healing agents since the plasma concentration is 3 to 5 times more than the standard blood in circulation.
The doctor injects these concentrations into your skin where they need to see improvement.
When the PRP is injected, it boosts collagen production, which is responsible for building new cells. That is how dull and aged skin starts looking young and fuller a few months later since the collagen has made new cells.
IT helps in eliminating wrinkles and makes the skin smooth and supple. A combination of fillers and plasma can work wonders for your facial rejuvenation treatment.
PRP for Hair
Your face and scalp have some very important nerves. You should only approach a specialist for treatment of the face and the scalp. Dr. Archit Aggarwal is an MD in dermatology and is also a trichologist. You can find him on clinicspots.com, practo.com, lybrate.com, and various other platforms.
While you consult with your doctor, the doctor will examine your scalp thoroughly.
Your doctor will also take your medical history, including existing health conditions, medications you are taking, allergies to certain medications, your lifestyle, and most importantly, your family history.
Once the doctor has determined your condition, they will recommend a line of treatment.
They may suggest hair transplant or hair loss prevention depending upon the causes of hair loss.
Suppose the condition is temporarily caused due to weakness, lack of nutritional support, or metabolic disorders, your doctor will focus on resolving those issues also. In that case, they will suggest an appropriate diet and exercise routine and some hair growth boosting treatments. These may include special oils to apply and health supplements if you lack some essential nutrients in your body or you are recovering from a disease that has taken its toll on you.
Along with these, to improve or instead prevent further hair loss or thinning, they may suggest PRP treatment.
The procedure remains the same; only the injection site is your scalp instead of your face.
Is there risk involved in undergoing PRP treatment?
Since the plasma and the platelet are both taken from your own body, the procedure is usually safe; however, it does cause a few effects in the rarest of rare cases. In these rare cases, a person may show signs of:
- Nerve injuries
- Pain at injected points
- Tissue damage.
But as mentioned earlier, these occurrences are minor to none.
The invention of this treatment is a medical miracle in itself, well, like all other inventions in the medical field.
