HAIR TREATMENT WITH PRP
What is PRP?
» HAIR APPLICATIONS
Platelets are the smallest cells in the blood, averaging about 2 to 4 μm in diameter. These cells provide blood clotting or fluidity and play an important role in wound healing. Furthermore, the growth factors of platelets activate the repair mechanism of the cells and accelerate the process of wound healing. In the PRP treatment, the number of platelets increases up to 1 million through special tubes and allows the tissues to be regenerated and repaired.
Loss of 100-150 strands of hair per day is normal. If this figure is exceeded, hair loss should be taken seriously. PRP also ensures successful results in the hair treatment. In the PRP procedure, the patient’s own blood is draw and treated in a special instrument. Here, the fraction that nourishes and develops the fibroblasts is separated and injected into the area of hair loss. This method is particularly effective in genetic hair loss. Furthermore, the PRP treatment can be combined with hair mesotherapy in the patients with genetic hair loss.
Approximately 10 cc of venous blood is drawn for the PRP that aims hair treatment. The centrifuged blood is divided into two fractions; white blood and red cells. The red blood involves the red blood cells, platelets, coagulation factors, and PGF (platelet-derived growth factor). The red blood is processed and injected to the area of hair loss. The basis of this procedure is the tissue regeneration. Any scar is not seen after the procedure, and the patients can resumetheir daily activities immediately.
This procedure lasts for 30 minutes in average and it is applied once every 15 days for 3-4 months. Afterwards, it will be sufficient to apply once a year.
