Platelets contain growth factors that stimulate hair re-growth and contain vascular endothelial growth factors that stimulate collagen and elastic fibers, thereby it is used as an anti-aging procedure on the face.

PRP is obtained by extracting the patient's blood and then spun in a centrifuge to separate the solid material from liquid components and platelet activators. The separated solid portion of the blood is PRP.

The normal platelet count is 150,000- 350,000, the PRP can have as much as 10,00,000 platelet count, which can be used for bone and tissue healing procedure.

"Recent researches have proved PRP treatment to be extremely effective in treating male and female pattern baldness and majority of our patients fall into this category. We use autologous PRP (platelet rich plasma extracted from one's blood) for hair growth procedures. Procedure intervals can be between 1 to 9 months depending upon the condition of a problem in an individual," said Bhatia.

As per the World Journal of Cardiology reports, PRP can also be helpful in repairing damaged heart tissue. Researchers in Greece have undertaken and analyzed the studies looking into the use of PRP after heart attacks, where heart tissue is damaged and cannot repair itself, he added.
