Ideal Criterion for Hair Transplant & PRP Therapy
Experiencing hair loss can cause extreme frustration, trying to diagnose the reason for your hair loss can cause even more frustration! But if you’ve already dealt with those 2 topics and have made up your mind to either go for a Hair Fall Therapy or a Hair Transplant then you’ve landed on the right page!
Let’s talk about PRP first. We’ve already extensively covered it on our blog before. Still, to give you a recap, PRP is the process in which blood that contains essential proteins and regenerative cells are injected to restore damaged tissues. The plasma is filtered out from the rest of the blood and its components for increased effectiveness.
This process is done using a special machine that is called a centrifuge. The filtered PRP is then collected in a syringe and injected into the scalp to promote hair growth. Besides increasing the blood flow to the hair follicles, PRP also has proteins that promote cell growth.
Who Is a Good Candidate for PRP therapy?
PRP is perfect for individuals looking for a non-invasive and non-surgical hair restoration procedure. If you are in the early stages of hair loss, then you are an ideal candidate for PRP hair therapy as this therapy cannot revive hair follicles that have been dormant for a long time. This is also why it may not be the ideal solution for people who have significant balding. The team at Cult Aesthetics lead by Dr. Gaurav can help you understand the hair loss stage which you are in and whether you would be a good candidate for PRP Therapy or not.
Now Coming to Hair Transplant,
Who Is the Right Hair Transplant Candidate!
Hair transplant is an elective procedure. Anyone who wishes to undergo it must meet the following criteria:
- Has been diagnosed with a hair loss condition that is amenable to a hair transplant.
- Has adequate donor hair to satisfy the needs of the surgery.
- Has realistic expectations on what hair transplant surgery can accomplish.
- Has significantly receded hairline or overall low density.
- Has more frontal baldness than vertex baldness.
Ideal Age for Hair Transplant:
- Over 25 usually.
- Hair Transplant is done under age 25 only when the pattern of baldness has been established.
- The upper age limit depends on various dynamic factors that the Surgeon must evaluate on case-to-case basis.
PRP or Hair Transplant?
The kind of hair loss you have dictates what option is the best option for you. Hair Transplant is the best option in cases where substantial balding is there along with hair thinning across the scalp. Hair transplant is a great solution to the problems of bald patches and receding hairlines, especially when the cause of hair loss is genetics.
PRP Therapy is more suitable for patients who have just started to suffer from conditions like alopecia areata and traction alopecia. It is also great for patients who wish to strengthen the existing hair and promote natural hair growth, all while reducing hair fall.
