PRP treatment – fighting against hair loss

Many men suffer from thin hair and hair loss with increasing age. This development is a natural aging process. However, hair loss affects a large number of men who often experience psychological problems. The PRP method (Platelet Rich Plasma) provides help. Hair loss can be counteracted and often even reversed with this effective technique.

How does the PRP treatment work?

One innovation that can help men with early baldness is the treatment with PRP. This relatively new procedure is used against hair loss. PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma. During treatment, a special substance is used which is obtained from the patient’s own blood. In the first step, the blood, which contains highly concentrated platelets and blood proteins, is processed by centrifugation and plasmapheresis (filtration). This process takes about 20 minutes in the laboratory. The resulting platelet-rich plasma, which consists of platelet-rich blood plasma with stem cells and cycotins (growth factors), accelerates the body’s own healing processes. The PRP must then be injected immediately into the areas of the scalp affected by hair loss.

Effect of treatment with PRP

The new formation and regeneration of cells is stimulated in a natural way. As a result, hair loss is slowed down and hair growth is simultaneously supported. By injecting plasma directly into the scalp (the stem cells in the hair roots) the cells stimulate blood vessel formation and microcirculation. This procedure releases growth factors that further stimulate the hair root cells and repair damaged root cells. The activation of blood vessel-forming cells ensures better blood circulation and an optimal supply of nutrients. After only one treatment, hair loss can be reduced or even stopped. In addition, the formation of new hair follicles is stimulated.

PRP – the natural way to powerful hair

The highly effective treatment with PRP is an absolutely natural one. After all, PRP is an endogenous product. For this reason, there is no risk of intolerance or allergic reaction. In addition, the treatment is completely painless and does not cause any scarring. Although often a single treatment minimizes hair loss, Aesthetic Travel experts recommend three sessions in the first year of treatment. If a session takes place at intervals of 1 to 2 months, a recurrence of hair loss is usually ruled out. Subsequently, one session every 6 to 12 months is sufficient as a preventive treatment to ensure strong hair growth in the long term.

What is hair loss actually?

The fact that hair falls out and grows back is a completely natural process. However, there is also pathological hair loss, in which some people lose an extremely large amount of hair. Often these hairs do not grow back, so that bare patches are formed. The intensity varies from a few bare spots to a full bald spot.

Are only men affected by hair loss?

In principle, around one third of the world’s population is affected by hair loss. This affects mainly, but not exclusively, men. The most common form of hair loss is hereditary. Of 10 men, every seventh loses hereditary hair splendour in the course of their lives. Women are less often affected. But 25% of all women suffer from hair loss.

How promising is PRP against hair loss?

In most cases, the symptoms of hair loss are significantly reduced after the first treatment with PRP. Often hair loss is stopped directly. However, for beautiful full hair a subsequent treatment should be carried out to ensure a permanent success.

Are there side effects and risks associated with PRP treatment?

Basically, no. Since PRP is obtained from the body’s own blood, side effects such as allergic reactions or hypersensitivity are excluded.

Is PRP treatment painful?

The scalp is sprinkled locally before the treatment. The treatment is therefore virtually painless. Since the PRP is injected, the patient may occasionally feel a small prick. After the treatment, the treated areas should be cooled in order to exclude any subsequent pain.

Are there any behavioural rules after treatment with PRP?

As with all medical treatments, the patient will of course be given rules of conduct to ensure a successful outcome. If you want to have a treatment with PRP you should make sure that you have not taken blood thinning agents such as aspirin. After the treatment the scalp should be kept cool for some time. In most cases, the scalp shows a slight redness, which subsides after one day. In some cases, patients may feel a slight pulling or tension in the treated areas for up to two days. After the treatment, hair washing, sports or other extreme physical exertion, sauna and irradiation in the solarium should be avoided for 24 hours. However, the patients are immediately socially acceptable again and can immediately resume their normal activities.
