Dr. Devgan shares her top medical tips with Paper Mag on how to keep your hair growing strong and healthy.
For those experiencing hair loss, Dr. Devgan recommends PRP Injections.
"PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, a derivative of the body's blood. A specialist will first draw a sample of blood, then spin it in a centrifuge to separate out the less dense yellow portion, which is the Platelet Rich Plasma, then sterilely inject the PRP into the scalp in areas of hair loss. PRP is rich in growth factors, which stimulate stem cell activity. This is associated with a benefit in hair density and growth. Most doctors will recommend sessions of PRP injections over a six-month period. For some patients this needs to be repeated but for others a single round is sufficient. PRP is sometimes referred to as liquid gold because of its golden color— going back to our crop analogy, PRP is like the fertilizer."
