With the arrival of the autumn season, rapid loss of hair strands, sudden and heavy shedding can be seen. This situation, which can be very annoying, is an issue caused by our internal biological rhythm that responds to the outside world. PRP application has become the most popular formula for the treatment of seasonal hair loss, as it is in genetic shedding. PRP, that is, in the treatment of platelet rich plasma; Your own blood, enriched by coagulation (platelet) cells, is injected back into the scalp.
Every coagulation cell circulating in the blood is the source of many molecules and growth factors that play a role in wound healing. These factors are also used in hair treatment with PRP.
In this application, approximately 10 ml of blood is taken from the individual with hair loss into a specially prepared PRP tube. By allowing this tube to rotate rapidly in the centrifuge, platelet cells in the blood are separated from other elements of the blood. Thus, in our normal circulating blood, 200-400 thousand platelet cells per milliliter are found as 1-1.5 million platelets in the aggravated plasma. Prepared liquid PRP is given to the scalp as point injections with very thin special needle tips.
Thanks to the growth factors released from the cells with the PRP given to the tissue, tissue reconciliation begins, capillary formation is triggered, and the rejuvenation process begins. The nutrition of the hair follicles improves. By stimulating weak hair follicles, PRP strengthens thinned, unclear hair, thickens all hair, and makes it look shiny and lively. PRP is very effective on hair follicles. In every patient, shedding obviously decreases in the first 10 days, existing hair strands become thicker, and new hair growth becomes visible in the first month. The areas that appear empty on the scalp begin to fill. Good results are obtained in both male and female patients. It is also applied as a baseline treatment after hair transplantation.
The process takes 20 minutes. PRP is applied 3-4 times a month. After PRP applied to the hair, needle marks, bleeding or crusting are not seen. All patients can return to their social lives without any problems after the process. No pain or itching. In PRP application, the blood applied to the person in the process is his own blood. Therefore, there is no risk of side effects, allergies or transmission of an infectious disease such as hepatitis.
PRP, which is a very valuable part of aesthetic medicine applications, always gives satisfactory results quickly. Captured good condition lasts for 1-2 years on average. In fact, the beautifying effect of PRP does not completely disappear at the end of this period. If the person is supported with proper hair care, the effect lasts for years. However, the ideal is to support the permanence of the effect with at least one session of maintenance PRP per year.
