PRP therapy to stimulate hair growth, androgenic alopecia, scar therapy, acne

What is PRP treatment and how is it used?

The PRP method (Platelet Rich Plasma) is the application of one's own blood plasma rich in platelets in dermatology and aesthetic medicine. Platelets are the constituent cells of our blood and contain numerous growth factors that are released after activation, and act to stimulate stem cells and thereby accelerate the process of healing and tissue regeneration.

The mentioned method in dermatology and aesthetic medicine is most often used to stimulate hair growth, androgenetic alopecia, scar therapy, acne. In order to prepare plasma rich in platelets, it is first necessary to remove a small amount of blood from the patient, which is then placed in a special centrifuge that rotates at high speed and automatically produces PRP - plasma rich in platelets and growth factors. This plasma is then separated from leukocytes and erythrocytes.

How does the PRP method work?

The blood is centrifuged, after which plasma rich in platelets is separated, from which numerous growth factors are released. Growth factors help produce new collagen, improve damaged skin, and slow down and reverse the signs of aging. This method does not cause unwanted reactions, considering that it is your blood and a natural method.

What does PRP treatment look like?

The stem cell treatment lasts about 15 minutes after the blood is centrifuged and the plasma is collected. Blood is taken from a vein and placed in a special centrifuge that extracts plasma full of growth factors and stem cells. They have a stimulating effect on the skin and improve local microcirculation and stimulate the skin renewal process.

The treatment is minimally painful, and some side effects are sensitivity and slight redness that lasts for about 24 hours, so immediately after the end of the treatment it is possible to continue with your usual activities.

What does PRP therapy look like in the treatment of hair loss?

nterestingly, hair growth can be seen after 2 months, but the effect is typically visible within 4-8 months. The result will continue to improve until the end of the first year after the therapy.

The best treatments are achieved if the PRP scalp treatment is repeated three times every 4-6 weeks. This treatment has no reported side effects and can be combined with any other hair growth therapy.

Ideal candidates for this therapy are men and women in the early stages of hair thinning, patients with thin hair and those with diffuse hair loss.

By applying the PRP method, accelerated hair growth was observed in most patients, and the beneficial effect of the PRP method in androgenic alopecia is caused by the action of various growth factors from platelets that stimulate cell division in the hair follicle and thus promote hair growth. Growth factors released from platelets act on stem cells in the hair follicle, stimulating their proliferative phase and differentiation with the formation of new hair follicles and stimulating the formation of new blood vessels.

During the Corona virus pandemic, many sick patients noticed sudden hair loss and thinning, which is mostly lagging behind, so PRP treatment is recommended to these patients to stop hair loss and start the growth of new hair.
