PRP Hair Loss Treatment
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has emerged as a new highly effective non-invasive treatment modality for hair loss in men and women with minimal downtime and no major side effects.
Our hair is considered to be an important feature of our self-image. Therefore, the progressive hair loss, affecting both sexes (it affects up to 80% men and 40% women) significantly impairs quality of life, self-esteem, personal attractiveness and may even lead to depression and other negative effects of life, especially in women.
A number of non-invasive hair loss therapies such as Minoxidil and Finasteride have been proposed as hair loss therapies. Low patient compliance and satisfaction rate, as well as numerous systematic adverse effects, has led to a search for new treatment options for alopecia. PRP injections appear to be effective in the treatment of hair loss in both males and females, without remarkable adverse effects, along with high patient satisfaction rate.
PRP is defined as the plasma derived from autologous (your own) blood rich in the essential growth factors – “growth factors cocktail”! The regenerative potential of plasma depends on interactions between PRP growth factors (PDGF, TGF-b, and VΕGF) and stem cells of the follicles to activate the proliferative phase of the hair, giving rise to the future follicular unit. Therefore, PRP serves as a potential treatment of hair loss.
To obtain the best results possible, our comprehensive multistep model includes the following steps:
Diagnosis of alopecia is made in all patients based on a detailed medical history (any drugs causing hair loss), clinical examination and laboratory tests in order to exclude other hair loss causes, such as anemia, poor nutrition, thyroid dysfunction, syphilis or polycystic ovary syndrome.
Patients start taking supplements and green tea extract 4 weeks before PRP Hair Treatment to stimulate the growth of healthy hair by strengthening hair follicles and promoting elongation of the hair follicles.
For the preparation of PRP, RegenKit (Regenlab®) is used. The blood is collected into 2 tubes (RegenBCT) and centrifuged for 5-10 min to separate and concentrate the platelet rich plasma about 6-10 ml of PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma).
PRP with ACells (Stem Cells) and Vitamins (Vitamin B complex and Vitamin D) is injected into the problematic areas using a small needle.
Microneedling is performed over the treated areas with topical PRP Treatment.
Red light laser therapy – a highly specific wavelength of red light (approximately 655 nanometers) – has achieved excellent results in male and female patients of all ages, particularly in conjunction with PRP Treatment and Mesotherapy to the scalp by stimulating follicular cells from dormancy into an active growth phase.
Most patients can return to work immediately after the treatment. Minimal discomfort may occur after a few hours. Patients may experience swelling, bruising, redness and/or possible scabbing in the treatment area. A follow-up appointment will be necessary to monitor progress.
PRP has a positive therapeutic effect on male and female pattern hair loss without major side effects. Based on our experience, patients demonstrate clinical improvement in the number of hairs-hair regrowth (up to 20% increase) and hair thickness (30 – 40% increase).
The cost for SD PRP Hair Treatment is $2,800 and includes 2 sessions and vitamin injections. Also, price depends on the severity of the condition and the amount of treatments performed.
Q&A / QUESTIONS AND SD ANSWERS
- Find a PRP expert who utilizes PRP with ECM Extracellular Matrix, like ACell or BioD-Restore, so you can get the strongest and longest results from the treatment and reduce the hassle and expense of frequent, repeat treatments.
- Ask if low level laser therapy will be applied pre and post-treatment to enhance the procedure.
