PRP hair – Stop shedding and stimulate new hair growth
What is PRP hair?
PRP hair is a non-invasive method of biostimulation of one’s own tissue with the main growth factors, released from one’s own platelets.
After taking and processing the blood, plasma rich in platelets and growth factors is injected with the thinnest needles into the mesoderm of the head’s skin, where it stimulates tissue regeneration, circulation of the head and rejuvenation of the follicles, which leads to stopping hair loss, enhancing the quality of existing hair and stimulating the growth of new hair.
The ultimate results are accomplished by combining this procedure with hair mesotherapy.
How does PRP hair work?
Our blood consists of two main components, red blood cells and plasma. Plasma contains growth factors, platelets, stem cells, cytokines and other elements that promote the growth of new blood vessels in the scalp. These vessels bring fresh oxygen and nutrients that nourish and strengthen the hair follicles. Consequently, hair strands become thicker.
Therefore, PRP not only nourishes existing follicles, but can also stimulate the growth of new roots on the scalp. In this way, it has a twofold approach against hair loss:
- Decreases hair loss rate
- Promotes the growth of new follicles
How is PRP hair done?
PRP hair is a simple procedure.
It is performed by the doctor taking a small sample of the patient’s own blood in special tubes. This blood is then centrifuged, where the blood cells are separated from the plasma, which is then injected into the mesoderm of the scalp with fine needles.
It stimulates tissue regeneration, circulation and revitalization of follicles, which leads to stopping hair loss, improving the quality of existing hair and stimulating new hair growth.
Who is the ideal candidate for PRP hair?
Candidates for PRP hair can be divided into two categories:
- candidates suffering from chronic hair loss
- candidates suffering from acute hair loss
Patients who still have functional hair follicles have the most success with PRP hair treatment.
Unfortunately, patients who have been completely bald on certain parts of the head or the whole head for a long time are sadly not the best candidates for PRP treatment; thus, the application of this treatment is unsuccessful.
Contraindications of PRP hair treatment
PRP treatment should be avoided by patients who have blood and platelet disorders, chronic liver disease, presence of active severe infection, HIV, malignant disease, certain cardiovascular diseases, pregnant women, etc.
Steroid use and smoking are relative contraindications and should be discussed with one’s doctor, as they may decrease the treatment effects.
In any case, prior to each PRP treatment at the White Clinic, patients have a consultation, based on which the doctor determines whether there are any contraindications for the procedure.
PRP facial – One of the most popular regenerative anti-aging treatments.
What is PRP?
PRP (Platelet Reach Plasma) – platelet-rich plasma is the most natural rejuvenation method that uses the body’s own ability to mend tissue damage for rejuvenation. PRP, also known as the so-called “vampire lifting” is one of the most popular regenerative antiaging treatments in Hollywood nowadays.
PRP was initially used in other branches of medicine (sports injuries, orthopedics, other tissue rejuvenation, etc.), and later it began to be used in skin regeneration as well.
PRP is an entirely safe treatment because, since one’s own blood is used, there is no risk of an allergic or immune response.
Platelets that swim in our blood are usually inactive cells, however, when there is an injury or a cut, the platelets wake up, activate and release a huge number of growth factors at the site of the injury that leads to tissue regeneration and wound healing. It is their ability to regenerate their own tissue that is used in this method.
Growth factors released from platelets encourage the creation of a new capillary network, collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, which regenerates, rejuvenates, makes the skin firmer, luminous and tighter, and with a deeper application, we can also regenerate the deeper facial structures. PRP is ideal for rejuvenating the skin of the face, neck, décolletage, hands and hair (both in cases of hair loss and alopecia and after hair transplantation).
