Causes Of Hair Loss & Hair Thinning

Hair loss can be caused by a range of factors, from hormonal imbalances, environmental and stress factors, and a depletion of stem cells. It affects approximately 70% of men by the age of 70 years, with 25% of men balding by the age of 30 years. It is usually a gradual process, with a gradual loss of thickness and strength of individual hair follicles.

PRPTT Treatment For Hair Loss

Perfect Rich Platelet Therapy, or PRPTT, is concentrated blood plasma that contains approximately five times the number of platelets found in normal circulating blood. Apart from red blood cells and white blood cells, our blood also contains cells known as platelets. The function of platelets is to promote healing and aid in the clotting of blood at the site of a wound. Platelets contain growth factors that promote the regeneration of the cells in the body. PRPTT has been used in medicine for the last two decades.

Platelets aid in the body’s ability to heal wounds and promote cell growth. The idea behind PRPTT is that by increasing the platelet count in a certain area, the body’s healing capacity in that area would be accelerated.

The injection of platelet-rich plasma (PRPTT) is a technique using the body’s own blood to heal itself. Doctors now incorporate it for the growth of thinning hair, transplanted hair, and wound healing. Many patients have benefited from this form of treatment.

PRPTT Procedure

The procedure takes 1-2 hours, depending on the amount of hair loss. PRPTT therapy is performed in 3 stages. 

  • First, approximately 60-100ml of blood is collected from your vein. The blood is collected by a nurse and placed in a special Cellenis PRPT tube. The tube is then placed in a centrifuge where your blood is spun for approximately 15 minutes to separate the concentrated platelets from your normal whole blood. The PRPTT that contains abundant growth factors and stem cells is now ready to be applied to the scalp. The goal of this process is to increase the effects of PRPTT on hair loss.
  • The rich concentration of platelets is now applied to the scalp where hair loss has begun. Therefore, preparing the scalp to receive the PRPTT is necessary. For this, the scalp is stimulated to activate the wound healing process. 
  • Topical anesthesia is applied on the portion of the scalp where PRPTT will be injected. To prepare the scalp for PRPTT application, a special micro-needling roller device is used. This roller device causes micro-trauma to the lower layer of the scalp skin that induces other healing and growth repair cells into action. The micro-needle roller uses 192 unique needles made up of titanium that pierces into the skin and opens the skin to create micro-wounds. Since it uses low pressure, the pain is minimal. Immediately, the highly concentrated PRPTT is injected into these areas of the scalp.

The new rolling device product is a medical breakthrough because it causes patients much less pain than similar products used in the past.

  • Occlusive dressing is then applied on the scalp and photodynamic treatment on the injected area is carried out to further enhance the effects of PRPTT. 
Patients generally have to receive this treatment multiple times before they can see any results. However, some patients may only have to receive this therapy once a year.

FAQs On PRPTT

Many studies have confirmed PRPTT’s effectiveness in treating thinning hair and baldness, though only some have seen regrowth. However, for many suffering from early stages of hair loss localised to one or two areas on their scalp, it could be a solution to reverse baldness without surgery. PRPTT works by injecting platelet-rich Cellulis Tubes with high growth factors into thinning areas, causing the scalp to become healthier and stimulating new hair follicle formation. 

Hair loss also affects approximately 50% of women by the age of 70 years. This can have a huge psychological impact on these individuals. This can also be managed with a variety of medical, hormonal, and stem-cell therapies. Stacey works with New Zealand’s top hair specialists to detail an individualized programme to manage and treat your hair loss.

The injected area may have mild swelling or it may even be tender to touch. Swelling should go away within a few hours after the procedure while tenderness may go away in a couple of days. There is a possibility of the area getting infected, but this is rare.

PRPTT does not pose any danger of allergy, hypersensitivity, or foreign-body reaction and it is a safe choice for many patients.
