Why is hair transplant done?In the world of sports medicine, doctors have used PRP to help heal muscle and tendon injuries. With hair loss, research suggests injecting the platelets found in a patient's blood and activating growth factors can improve the blood supply to their hair follicles and increase the thickness of their hair shafts.
How is PRP treatment applied?Plasma is the liquid portion of your blood that is mostly made up of water and protein. It allows red and white blood cells and platelets to move through your bloodstream. Platelets are a type of blood cell that enables blood coagulation. They also play a role in healing. To collect the plasma, a doctor draws blood from your body and uses a machine to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood. Then the doctor numbs the part of your body that was treated with PRP injections. After numbness, the doctor uses a needle to inject your plasma into the treated area of your body. PRP injections usually take about 30 minutes, but it depends on the area you target. After platelets enter the area being treated, they break down and release growth factors, compounds that help cells repair and regenerate. This is thought to trigger your body's healing process. PRP treatment may need to be applied for at least 2-3 sessions. The interval between sessions is approximately 3 weeks. Repeating the PRP treatment once a year increases and maintains the effect of the treatment. In order for PRP-assisted hair transplantation to be highly effective and successful, you can increase the quality of blood by avoiding addictive habits such as smoking and alcohol.
