Hair Loss Treatment PRP
An innovative, very effective, conservative and totally safe treatment that offers an optimum solution to the problem of hair loss is PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) treatment.
Hair loss treatment with PRP can be applied to both men and women. Apart from androgenetic alopecia (male pattern hair loss), PRP 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
PRP (Platelet-rich plasma) uses the patient’s own blood plasma, which is rich in platelets and growth factors. This hair loss treatment consists in the injection of blood plasma 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 plasma, which is rich in platelets (platelet-rich plasma, PRP). Afterwards, the plasma is activated with calcium ions. The activated platelets are now capable of producing growth factors and triggering the pluripotent progenitor stem cells in the region of the scalp where the plasma 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 stem cells. With PRP hair loss treatment, growth factors are multiplied, activating more stem 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, PRP treatment is a totally safe therapy.
Hair loss treatment with PRP 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, PRP 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, PRP hair loss treatment is a standard ingredient of the protocol that is applied before and after hair transplantation with FUE method.
