Hair loss is a common concern in recent years for people in Jaipur. As a result, there is a significant demand for hair loss care. Platelet Rich Plasma and Mesotherapy treatments are two non-surgical hair loss treatments available for people in Jaipur. 

 

At Rejuvena Cosmo Care, one of the best hair transplant clinics in Jaipur, provide both the treatments per your requirements.

 

So, let's compare Mesotherapy and PRP for hair loss.

PRP vs Mesotherapy

 

Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is getting a lot of attention recently because of its high success rate. We can treat Androgenetic alopecia with it very effectively.

 

PRP therapy is a three-step procedure that involves extracting, processing, and injecting the blood into the bald area of your scalp. According to medical professionals, the treatment triggers natural hair growth in the scalp. Our doctor may pair the PRP treatment with other hair loss treatments or medications to achieve the best results.

 

The stimulation of hair follicles eventually rejuvenates the damaged tissues and slows your hair loss process down.

 

What is PRP therapy, and how does it work?

The PRP treatment goes like this: 

 

1st phase: 

Our doctor extracts about 50 mL of blood from your body.

 

2nd phase: 

The blood is then separated in a centrifuge. The blood is spun at high speed in the centrifuge to extract the platelet-poor plasma, platelet-rich plasma, and red platelets from the blood sample.

 

3rd phase:

Then our doctor collects platelet-rich plasma in a syringe.

 

4th phase:

We clean the treatment region of your scalp with iodine or alcohol.

 

5th phase:

After that, we inject the platelet-rich plasma into your bald region. 

 

In most cases, you will need four to six sessions spread out over 4-6 weeks. Then, depending on your requirements, you may need more sessions.

 

What kind of person is a successful candidate for PRP?

Well, anyone who is experiencing hair loss or baldness will get benefit from PRP therapy. But remember that it is not for people who have liver problems, bleeding problems, skin problems, or undergoing chemotherapy. Individuals with a low pulse, as well as chain smokers, should avoid the PRP treatment. 

 

Now let us see few benefits of PRP treatment. 

  • PRP therapy does not require any operation.
  • You will see no scar on your scalp due to the treatment.
  • It is a healthy practice, and there is no chance of contamination from someone else as we use your blood.
  • The pain related to the treatment is negligible.
  • It increases blood flow to the scalp's hair follicles and triggers your hair growth.
  • The treatment is easily affordable for all.
  • Most importantly, there are no harmful side effects.

 

Are there any side effects of the treatment?

Nerve wounds, discomfort, and tissue damage are possible side effects of PRP hair treatment since it involves infusing platelet-rich plasma into your skin. However, these complications arise very rarely.

 

Now let us discuss mesotherapy as a hair loss treatment:

Your hair loss complication may also get benefit from mesotherapy. It is very effective in treating thinning of hair to alopecia. During the procedure, our hair transplant surgeon in Jaipur injects all effective drugs into your scalp.

 

The mesotherapy hair treatment procedure involves the following steps:

The treatment requires seven or eight sessions, each lasting for thirty minutes. After your fifth session, you will be able to see the noticeable results. 

 

It has a high success rate in treating androgenetic alopecia. It also treats rapid hair loss caused by various factors such as nutrient deficiencies, chronic illness, climate change, stress, etc.

 

So, what are the benefits of mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy has a range of benefits. 

  • It is a comfortable and straightforward procedure.
  • There is no need for surgery.
  • It takes up very little time (30 minutes for each session).
  • The pain is negligible.
  • There is no need for follow-up therapy.

 

Are there any adverse effects of mesotherapy on your health? 

The treatment is free of any long-term side effects. But you may experience bruising and soreness on the scalp region just after the treatment. But these side effects usually disappear after a few days.

 

Mesotherapy and PRP treatment for hair: a comparison

PRP hair treatment consists of multiple platelet-rich plasma infusions, whereas mesotherapy consists of various natural ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, plant extracts, and more.

 

We inject the ingredients into the mesoderm layer of your skin during mesotherapy, while platelet-rich plasma can be injected into any skin layer.

 

Mesotherapy takes about 5-8 sessions to see results, while PRP takes about 4-6 sessions to see results.

 

Mesotherapy takes just thirty minutes per session, while PRP takes around an hour per session.

 

Mesotherapy is less costly than PRP treatment.

As previously mentioned, PRP and Mesotherapy are both effective options for treating hair loss. Both of them can produce successful results.
