Enriched plasma also known as PRP treatment is rich in platelets and can be used to treat and prevent hair loss.
There are many studies that support the use of platelet-rich plasma for the treatment of androgenic alopecia in both men and women, and of course other types of hair loss such as alopecia areata.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is concentrated plasma that contains approximately three to five times more platelets than the normal number of platelets in the blood. The plasma is extracted from the patient's own blood, there is no risk of rejection or allergic reactions.
All of these factors aid in the release of growth hormones and stimulate fibroblasts that will produce collagen. It promotes wound healing and hair growth.
Prp treatment consists of injections into the scalp, these injections contain plasma rich in growth factors, which are released almost painlessly by the patient's own platelets through microinjections into the scalp.
To obtain plasma rich in growth factors, a small sample of the patient's blood is extracted, the plasma PRP fraction is separated by controlled centrifugation and "platelet-rich plasma" is injected at capillary level to stimulate its regeneration. The plasma has protein.
Thanks to the application of plasma rich platelet injections, a 200% increase of macrophages is produced in the local area where they destroy bacteria and fungi, controlling hair dermatitis or seborrheic dermatitis, one of the causes of hair loss that leads to baldness.
PRP treatment is recommended for men and women who need to increase hair density.
The main benefits of PRP treatment for hair are the contribution of nutrients, growth factors and stem cells that are injected into the dermis of the scalp.
It is a highly recommended therapy to help hair recovery and stimulation after and before a hair transplant and in patients who have weak hair or are in a period of prolonged hair loss.
Among the benefits of hair plasma PRP we highlight the following
At Clínica de Freitas we have the most advanced medical technology so that all our hair treatments are performed in the most effective way possible and to obtain the best results.
The results are obtained thanks to the stimulation of the cells responsible for hair growth, which help to reverse the process of hair miniaturization in the areas where it is applied.
As a visible result of the PRP hair treatment, we can see a more resistant, stronger and thicker hair.
Each patient evolves differently, but results can be seen after the third session. This will vary depending on the patient's condition.
The results can be visible between 3 and 6 months, the time can be variable depending on the patient.
When the injections of plasma rich in growth factors is performed, a slight redness may be observed. The results improve over the weeks and it is after one month when the final result is visibly visible.
It is important to remain consistent with the sessions to achieve and maintain the visible results of PRP in the long term. Its effect can be prolonged, it can last up to a year after the capillary therapy.
It is important to be careful when choosing a dermatologist or trichologist, who in addition to being a specialist in hair treatments, has mastered the plasma PRP.
In cases where hair loss is more pronounced, PRP can be combined with other treatments such as mesotherapy to accelerate and improve results.
Before undergoing a platelet-rich plasma treatment, an individual assessment must be made to determine the recommended number of sessions, which are usually between 3 and 4 sessions.
