The PRP process (platelet-rich plasma – platelet-rich blood plasma) is used to renew and strengthen weak hair and hair that can fall out, with this method the cells are restored naturally. For optimum growth, natural hair density and to increase the density in lighter areas, a combination of PRP hair treatment is recommended.
What is involved in A PRP Treatment?
For the complete treatment we recommend at least 3-5 sessions for most patients. You will first be examined by a doctor and he will discuss the operation with you. Your blood will be withdrawn and used for treatment. For this reason, the blood will be collected at the start of the operation, only once. The blood that is withdrawn from the patient is then separated into white and red blood cells by means of a centrifuge. The red blood cells are then extracted. This procedure takes place in an airtight system; therefore there is no contamination with air.
Your red blood cells are now being prepared in such a way that high concentrations of stem cells are collected. The red blood cells of the newly obtained concentrate are now injected directly into the affected area (your problem area).
Now your first treatment is complete and you can fly home the same day if you want. The following sessions are always held with an interval of 4 weeks. For these sessions you can take a flight in the morning and, for example, fly back home in the evening.
How It Works:
It works as an artificial activation of the platelets and stem cells due to the high concentration, the prevention of hair loss and the strengthening of the scalp.
The first results are visible even after the first treatment. After the second and third treatment, the result is intensified. This is made possible because the concentration of stem cells is 3-8 times higher than the volume in the blood throughout the body.
After the first three sessions, the hair becomes 60% denser than in the previous problem zone area. However, if you are still not satisfied with the result at this point, there is the possibility for further sessions.
It is a stem cell therapy; however, the injection only works locally. This means that only your hair volume will benefit from this treatment.
The Treatment is Combined With A Hair Transplant.
The treatment is independent of age and gender. Patients suffering from hair loss can benefit from this treatment. However, it is more common for men to have a very large problem area (i.e., complete baldness) – here your fitness must first be tested by a doctor.
You can follow a hair transplant and a PRP session at the same time to learn how the PRP injections work.
If you want to do both treatments, talk to the attending physician so that he can present the best solutions.
