Today, medicine offers different possibilities and techniques of hair recovery. PRP Hair Loss treatment uses active growth factors in platelet-rich plasma to stimulate regrowth by acting directly on hair follicle stem cells.
What is the PRP?
In our blood, we have three types of cells: red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets that bathe in the plasma. Here, only platelets are interesting.
In a blood test, it is easy to separate these elements to obtain the plasma alone, enriched in platelets. These contain growth factors that can revitalize or even regenerate tissues. In this case, the hair follicles can be awakened and stimulated by the injection of platelet growth factors.
Preparation and Process of the PRP Session
The nurse conducts a blood test, which will be centrifuged to separate the different blood components and recover the platelet-rich plasma. PRP is a product from your own organism. It is therefore 100% biocompatible and carries no risk of allergy or rejection.
The preparation is injected into the scalp with a thin needle. Platelets are living cells that will recreate tissue where they are injected. They contain growth factors that wake up stem cells from hair follicles and encourage them to make a new hair. The treatment consists of four sessions at fifteen days intervals. Then you will have to do a maintenance session a year. The session lasts about thirty minutes.
Results and effects of PRP / Hair loss treatments
The effect is quite incredible on the face and hair that find rigor and brightness. After the first session, the hair has a brighter, silkier and thicker feel. Following the second, there is a clear decrease in hair loss. At the end of the third session, you notice the hair regrowth.
Very little risk of PRP
Some redness is always possible in the follow hours. Since platelet extracts come from your own organism, the product is 100% biocompatible: the risk of intolerance is very limited. However, it is better to tell your doctor if you have a lot of allergies.
