DHI PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatment fortifies the hair follicles and stimulates the scalp to endorse hair growth. It assists the longevity and potency of the hair follicles It also reinvigorates dormant hair follicles and stimulates the growth of new hair. DHI PRP is ideal for male and female patients, despite the progress of their hair loss.
A small amount of blood (less than 50 ml) is obtained from the patient.
Platelet-Rich Plasma is isolated following the centrifugation of blood.
PRP is injected into the area which is suffering from hair loss in order to stimulate the scalp and to endorse hair growth.
Did you know?
DHI PRP can be coupled with any hair transplant procedure, to help partially transected follicles in the donor area; to regenerate bristles and help the recipient area’s implanted hair follicles prosper. Additionally, it will reduce the formation of scabs, trauma, inflammation and erythema (redness); and help the donor areas dermis and epidermis heal faster.
PRP Hair Treatment
Contrary to popular belief, surgical hair restoration options are not your only choice. You can also opt for other, less invasive alternatives.
One of these alternatives is the PRP hair treatment. It is a non-surgical hair restoration treatment for various common causes of hair fall and hair loss. However, unlike surgical treatments, PRP is only good for curing and preventing early stages of hair loss.
Nevertheless, there are many benefits of undergoing PRP hair treatment. Not only will it slow down your hair loss problem, but it will also improve the quality, lushness, thickness, and texture of your hair.
What is PRP?
PRP is a non-surgical treatment which is used treat hair thinning, to arrest hair loss and promote hair growth. It takes place by injecting plasma into the scalp, with the objective of stimulating the follicles. The PRP is activated with growth factors to stimulate inactive or newly implanted hair follicles into an active growth phase. The regular use of PRP prolongs the Anagen phase of the hair growth cycle.
PRP basically helps hair growth by accelerating the healing process of hair follicles, helping them regenerate at a faster pace. The platelets in the PRP contain various growth factors,
like Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF), Transforming Growth Factor-Beta (TGF-Beta) and Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF).
Together, these three growth factors promote cell growth, repair, and regeneration in the affected regions, where hair loss is the most prominent.
So, what happens when PRP is injected into the scalp? It basically stimulates the dormant hair follicles and encourages them to enter the active growth phase. Thus, the inactive hair follicles start growing new hair.
Moreover, another side benefit of PRP is that it improves the circulation of blood and nutrients to the affected regions, which further promotes healthy hair growth.
The PRP hair treatment is highly flexible and can be used to treat various hair loss conditions, like androgenetic alopecia (the most common form of hair loss worldwide). The treatment is also effective for both men and women. As per surveys and reports, it has been shown to produce visible effects on hair density, thickness, and overall volume.
At the same time, however, it should be strictly noted that PRP hair treatments are only used to stimulate growth. They cannot reverse the effects of hair loss or restore a full head of hair. For severe hair fall patterns, it’s best to consider alternative restoration options.
But in any case, PRP is one of the best methods for dealing with the early stages of hair loss as it can slow down the pace of deterioration and improve the quality and lushness of the hair.
How PRP Works?
A small amount of blood (less than 50 ml) is taken from the body and centrifuged at a high speed to separate the plasma. The PRP is then activated with DNA activators (thrombin) and enriched with calcium ions (e.g. calcium chloride) and injected into the area which is suffering from hair loss in order to stimulate hair growth.
At DHI, strict protocols are followed to ensure highest quality of results each time. Special attention is given to ensure that the centrifugation of blood is done under a temperature controlled environment.
The quantity of blood extracted, the centrifugation speed, anti-coagulant used, etc, all play an important role in multiplying the plasma to 5x, which is the highest in the industry. This highly concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP) is thereafter injected into the scalp which promotes hair growth and arrests hair fall.

PRP Hair Treatment Results
PRP is an effective non-surgical treatment for people suffering from hair loss. It is especially helpful in early stages of alopecia. Plasma injected into the scalp contains essential growth factors, which makes hair strong and healthy. Three sessions of PRP treatment performed in 6-8 weeks are ideal for quality results.
Why is PRP Preferred Over Surgical Treatments?
While surgical hair restoration options like Direct Hair Implantation serve as the only permanent solutions to patterned hair loss, PRP treatment is still widely preferred over them by a lot of people, especially for treating the early stages of hair loss.
Here's why PRP can prove to be more beneficial than other methods:
Less Invasive: PRP Hair Treatments are less invasive than surgical hair restoration alternatives like hair transplants because they do not require any incisions or sutures. They are typically performed on an outpatient basis and have little to no downtime or recovery time. However, methods like DHI have made surgical hair restoration techniques less invasive. So, large-scale hair loss problems should be treated accordingly.
Minimal to No Scarring: Typically, a PRP hair treatment will leave no visible scarring as there are no incisions or stitches involved. This will mean faster recovery times as your body won't have to do any healing.
No Complications: All kinds of cosmetic procedures that involve surgery come with the risk of side effects and postoperative complications. But non-surgical treatments like PRP eliminate the risk of such complications.
More Affordable: The PRP hair treatment, facilitated by Direct Hair Implantation, is highly affordable compared to other forms of hair restoration treatments. Thus, it's the most accessible choice for the masses.
Effective for Early-Stage Hair Loss: Most of the people dealing with hair loss problems are currently in the early stages of an underlying condition. Treatments like PRP are the most effective for treating early-stage hair fall problems. They may be able to slow down or even reverse the hair loss process in such cases.
Safety Protocols for PRP Hair Treatments
Generally, a PRP hair treatment is considered to be completely safe when it is performed by a qualified and experienced professional. However, there are some associated risks, as is the case with all kinds of medical procedures.
To avoid such complications, it's better to follow these safety protocols:
Proper Sterilization of Equipment and Materials: The clinicians should ensure that all the equipment and materials that are to be used during the procedure are completely sterilised to prevent the risk of spreading infection.
Use of Aseptic Techniques: Aseptic techniques should be followed by the healthcare professional to minimise contamination.
High-Quality PRP Kits: Purity and effectiveness of the PRP hair treatment should be guaranteed by using high-quality and clean PRP kits
Proper Injection Technique: The medical expert performing the treatment should be well-equipped to follow proper injection techniques. This is mandatory for reducing the risk of injury and ensuring that the PRP is injected precisely in the affected region.
Side Effects Monitoring: Side effects should be monitored by the doctor during regular check-ups. These side effects including symptoms like pain, swelling, or infection.
Patient Selection: Lastly, before starting the PRP hair treatment, doctors should ensure that the treatment is suitable for all patients. Only a qualified medical professional can evaluate the patient’s medical history to determine if the PRP procedure would be safe and appropriate for them.
At Direct Hair Implantation (DHI), we believe in guaranteeing the satisfaction and safety of our customers. As such, we employ only the most qualified and educated medical experts to carry out these procedures safely.
