PRP Supported Hair Transplantation

Hair Transplant

PRP (platelet rich plasma) is a method called platelet (thrombocyte) enriched plasma application. It is defined as the reapplication of the platelet-rich plasma part separated from the person’s own blood by a centrifuge device with special sets. PRP application has been used for many years in many branches of medicine, especially in the areas of aesthetic surgery, orthopedics, sports medicine, acne scars, hair loss, large wound treatments.

PRP is taken from the person’s own blood and then centrifuged 10cc. .The plasma part that separates from the red blood ensures that the hair follicles stay longer and alive in the plasma liquid until the hair follicles are transplanted due to the long waiting time of the hair follicles. PRP plasma contains dense “platelets” (clot cells), leukocytes, white blood cells. Activated platelets and leukocytes secrete growth factor. In the PRP method, the growth factor triggers the strength and proliferation of the stem cell. With this method, the scalp is renewed and the fact that it is obtained from the person’s own blood does not carry any risk of allergic reaction. An average of 10% loss may occur during hair transplantation. It can be reduced to 1% with PRP treatment. After the hair transplant operation, the retreatment is also continued as PRP mesotherapy. The effect of hair growth and thickening on the early and quick recovery of the transplanted hair follicles grafts as a result of PRP supported hair transplantation is very high and successful.

As a result of the researches, the other features of the PRP treatment method that can be applied to the hair, face, neck and décolleté areas are as follows;

  • It is easy and safe to administer to the patient.
  • The results are seen for a long time.
  • It has a regenerative and constructive effect.
  • Supports all vital functions of the skin as well as the formation of new collagen
  • It helps to remove wrinkles and lines by “rejuvenating” the skin, not by “filling” it.
  • Shortly after the first application to be performed on the patient, a slight regression may occur in the bright and healthy appearance obtained. It may be necessary to do several consecutive applications to fix this problem. Thus, it helps to create shiny and healthy hair.
