PRP Hair Treatment

Treatment of restoring slowed cell regeneration with plasmas

PRP is the short form of Platelet-Rich Plasma, a treatment of blood plasma rich of thrombocyte. Basic operation is to draw a certain amount of blood from the patient and to prepare/separate the plasma. Then this plasma is injected into body tissues. An effective treatment for skin regeneration and prevention of hair loss. Not only for such medical aesthetic problems PRP can also be administered for the treatment of muscles, joints, connective tissues and tendons.

PRP scalp treatment helps individuals having weak and/or thinned hairs gain healthier and abundant hairs. It is one the most effective treatments to prevent hair loss. The procedure aims to repair hair roots by injecting the plasma under scalp skin.

It is less likely to observe complications and allergies after a PRP treatment simply because the plasma is derived from the individual’s own blood. In a short while after the procedure hairs start to revive while the scalp tissue and hair roots are being repaired.

This plasma is then injected under the scalp tissue in order to repair hair roots and surrounding tissues. The treatment takes roughly 30 minutes with no pain present.
