Growth factors are proteins that exist in our bodies and have the ability to stimulate the production of various types of cells involved in healing processes. They can enhance the repair of damaged tissues by reactivating primitive pluripotent cells. With hair loss treatment, growth factors are multiplied, activating more cells. It restores the function of hair follicles in the area where the injection is done, resulting in the growth of new hair from re-stimulated, formerly inactive follicles. Therefore, PRP hair loss treatment enhances the development of hair follicles and thus leads to hair growth. Moreover, it prevents hair loss and strengthens the existing hair.
The treatment is performed under local anaesthesia so it is a totally painless procedure.
The results of the treatment are entirely natural, there are no side effects, since the patient’s own blood is used and provided that it is performed by a specialist doctor, as the ones at Advanced Hair Clinics, hair loss treatment with autologous growth factors is a totally safe therapy.
Hair loss treatment should be repeated every 4-6 weeks for the first six months (4-6 sessions), and subsequently once every six months in order to maintain the result.
After a hair transplantation session, hair loss treatment can be applied to both the receptor and the donor site, enhancing the healing process and maximising the results. At Advanced Hair Clinics, autologous growth factors hair loss treatment is a standard ingredient of the protocol that is applied before and after hair transplantation with FUE method.
