Hair Loss Treatment with autologous growth factors can be applied to both men and women. Apart from androgenetic alopecia (male pattern hair loss), hair loss treatment can also be applied with very good results in alopecia areata (spot baldness) and all types of diffuse alopecia, while it is also ideal for preventing hair loss, if applied before hair thinning becomes apparent
The Autologous Growth Factors treatment uses the patient’s own blood, which is rich in growth factors. This hair loss treatment consists in the injection of blood by mesotherapy at the spots where thinning is observed, after appropriate treatment of the patient’s blood. A small amount of blood is centrifuged in order to obtain the growth factors. Afterwards, the growth factor is activated with calcium ions. The activated ingredients are now capable of producing growth factors and triggering the pluripotent progenitor cells in the region of the scalp where the growth factor is introduced.
They have the ability to repair damages in the tissues into which they are introduced, to stimulate hair follicles that are in the course of degeneration, and to reduce hair loss. Hair is observed to grow back and further hair loss is prevented, while the hair strands become stronger and healthier.
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.
