The Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is an effective treatment against alopecia and it requires no downtime
Hair is one of the most important physical features and its loss might cause severe self-confidence issues and frustration. Although alopecia, as it is scientifically known, is more common in men, women can also suffer from hair loss due to various reasons: stress, malnutrition, sudden weight loss or even cancer.
There are various alopecia treatments ranging from medication to non-surgical treatments and even surgical hair transplant. However, for people in whom hair loss drugs have shown no effect and they are also not qualified for surgical hair restoration surgery, Renew Skin & Health Clinic recommends the Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP).
The Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is a non-surgical hair restoration procedure recommended by Renew Skin & Health Clinic. This is an outpatient procedure which consists in the collection of blood from a patient suffering from hair loss and the extraction, through centrifugation and separation, of the platelet rich plasma. This plasma is then injected in the scalp of the patient under local anesthesia. The goal is to cause a minor trauma to the dermis – at the deeper level of the skin – and thus stimulate cells to start the natural healing process of the damaged ones, the main cause of hair loss.
The PRP non-surgical hair transplant procedure has proven highly efficient in our patients and this is because first of all, this type of hair restoration is safe and natural since our specialists are using the patient’s own blood to stimulate the healing process and trigger hair regeneration. Moreover, since local anesthesia is used, the procedure is also painless and it lasts for only 1 hour, requiring no downtime.
At Renew Skin & Health Clinic you can benefit from the PRP therapy pre-operatively, intra-operatively or post operatively, after a hair transplant. However, it is our practitioners who will recommend you the most suitable course of action after assessing your medical history and evaluating you hair loss condition.
Studies have shown that regular or at least semiannual PRP treatments significantly enhance hair growth. This is why many of our patients opt to undergo the PRP therapy every three to four months in order to benefit from maximum hair restoration results.
