What is PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)?
PRP is a blood plasma concentrate that includes platelets, growth factors, leukocytes and cytokines. The PRP treatment method has been used in different fields in Europe, the United States and Asia for many years. This concentrate is injected into the patient areas that need to be treated. Generally, PRP is used to speed up the healing of wounds and soft tissues, and in hair loss treatments.
Why is the PRP method used for hair treatment?
PRP hair treatment is an innovative method to combat hair loss or thinning due to androgenetic alopecia.
PRP helps prevent hair loss and strengthen weakened hair.
PRP is used in all hair transplant surgeries carried out in our clinics in order to enhance the results of the hair transplant. PRP treatment helps the post-operative healing process and positively influences hair regrowth and thickness after transplant.
How is PRP performed?
PRP applications take place in the clinic.
The process begins with taking a blood sample from the patient, and continues with the blood centrifugation process in order to separate the platelet rich plasma (PRP) from the other components of the blood.
Who can benefit from the PRP treatment?
Men and women who have hair thinning problems are ideal candidates for the PRP treatment.
PRP treatment needs to be repeated in several sessions, according to the doctor’s prescription.
How is PRP used in hair transplants?
The day after a hair transplant, i.e. after having changed the bandaging, it is possible to undergo a combination of treatments: Laser and PRP, or only one of the two.
Hair transplant operations supported by PRP allow the tissues to regenerate faster, making the hair follicle growth phase active for a longer time and helping the adaptation process of the follicles in the transplanted area.
PRP with growth factors increases the speed of regrowth after surgery by generating new micro bloodvessels in the treated area, and allowing hair follicles to absorb oxygen and nourishment faster. As a result, this treatment proves to be very effective in increasing the rate of hair growth.
