Hair can lose its health by shedding due to various factors such as genetic factors, aging, illness, stress. Hair loss or hair loss in the hair can be aesthetically disturbing to people. In these cases, the application methods of the surgical aesthetic area on hair transplantation are used. Hair transplantation, which is one of the radical solutions to the problem of hair loss, usually means the transplantation of healthy hair follicles taken from the nape area to the balding area by surgical operation. After hair transplantation, PRP treatment can also be applied to make the transplanted hair stronger.
Platelet Rich Plasma treatment, or PRP for short, is based on the stem cell principle. The person’s blood is separated from the red blood by centrifugation, turned into a plasma fluid and injected into the area. It should also be known that PRP is not a therapeutic power alone to obtain hair in the balding area. It is among the helpful applications in hair transplantation.
What is PRP treatment?
Plasma fluid with a high rate of platelets is called PRP. PRP is used for treatment with various techniques to restore the natural health and strengthening of hair. In PRP treatment, the person’s own blood is converted into red blood and plasma is obtained as a result of specific procedures. PRP treatment is completed by injecting this plasma into the area to be treated.
PRP treatment can be applied not only after hair transplantation, but also to all women and men who have hair loss and hair loss problems. PRP is not applied in pregnancy-related hair loss, drug use or hair loss due to cancer disease.
All about PRP treatment after hair transplantation
Hair transplantation is also done with PRP treatment. PRP is applied during hair transplantation for the following reasons:
- To ensure that the wound due to surgery heals faster,
- To help the hair grow thicker and stronger and to reduce hair loss,
- Facilitating the healthy growth of grafts,
- Strengthening the hair follicles.
It is seen that PRP application during hair transplantation facilitates wound healing and hair loss in the areas where plasma is injected is reduced.
With PRP treatment, the hair that remains on the scalp and does not find strength to grow out is revitalized. PRP enables weak hair follicles to be revitalized and strengthened. Hair growth in the bald area is not expected from PRP treatment.
How is PRP applied in hair transplantation?
PRP is obtained as a result of the conversion of the person’s blood into a plasma fluid with a high thrombocyte ratio by various chemical processes. PRP is infected to the desired area and treated. After hair transplantation, PRP treatment can be performed after hair transplantation up to 3 sessions, with a session interval of 2-3 weeks. PRP is not required in all hair transplant applications. Details such as whether or how much PRP will be applied after hair transplantation are decided by the doctor.
Hair transplant or hair transplant is the transfer of hair from the donor area to the recipient area. A certain amount of time is required during this transfer. In this waiting period, the effect is increased by adding PRP into the solutions in which the hair follicles are kept in order not to lose their vitality. PRP treatment can also be applied in integration with mesotherapy.
