PRP method is a non-surgical method used to treat hair loss. The specialist doctors of Neohead Clinic combine the PRP treatment with hair transplantation to obtain maximum success in hair transplantation.
In the PRP application, some blood from the patient’s own body is taken. The blood taken is injected into the relevant areas of the patient’s scalp after a specific procedure.
Like isolated protein and thrombocytes, blood thrombocytes have the reactive tissue response. It activates stem cells and fibroblasts. The hair roots are formed, and the existing hair is strengthened. Thus, the formation of new blood vessels provides oxygen and nutrients to the hair. The hair loss is stopped, and hair growth is stimulated.
PRP method yields a higher success rate in hair transplantation and promotes healing. The recent studies have demonstrated that the PRP speeds up the hair growth phase and shows healthy development.
The PRP therapy naturally supports the fight against hair loss. Because there is a non-surgical treatment, the regeneration process takes just a few hours. Also, it does not have any side effects.
The PRP treatment is not a one-time treatment for androgenetic alopecia, but a good supplement. A periodic repeat of the process is recommended to provide the optimum benefit.
Frequently Asked Questions
Some patients experience hair loss at a young age. These patients should seek medication-assisted treatment to stop the hair loss before hair transplantation. PRP and Mesotherapy are applied for this purpose. These procedures may prevent hair loss and hair transplantation may not be necessary. If hair transplantation is performed without the application of this method, it may not be possible to achieve desired hair density as hair loss still continues. Therefore, hair transplant operation and postoperative results may not be satisfactory. To achieve best results, diagnosis and treatment must be performed by a specialist doctor.
Hair transplantation is performed under local anesthesia. The administration of local anesthesia can be a little painful. However, you will not feel any pain during the operation. In our clinic, the anesthesiologist decides on medications to be used and the type of anesthesia before the operation considering the patient’s age, health status, medical history, and operative time and performs the most appropriate anesthetic.
After hair transplantation, a slightly reddish crust may form in the recipient area. These crusts usually disappear about 7-10 days after surgery. Redness reduces and completely fades in 2 to 4 weeks.
It has already been scientifically proven that smoking can cause hair loss due to decreased blood flow. Decreased blood flow will accordingly slow down the healing process. For this reason, we recommend you to quit smoking to avoid negative side effects.
First of all, it is very important to determine the factors that cause hair loss in the patient. If there are hormonal reasons, women will not benefit from hair transplantation. Moreover, if the patient has been diagnosed with diffuse hair loss, the operation is not suitable. Otherwise, the donor area is also affected. This is an undesirable condition. Therefore, the exact cause of hair loss should be examined in women and treatment should be based on the diagnosis.
