Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is one of the newest techniques for treating hair loss. EstePlastHair offers PRP therapy for hair restoration for men and women in Turkey.
The benefits of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) was discovered in the medical field as a natural substance for healing tissues. PRP is clinically proven to stimulate the body’s natural healing response and is now one of the fastest-growing treatments for a variety of medical conditions, including hair loss. Our doctor performs PRP therapy to stimulate the cells that promote natural hair growth.
HOW DOES PRP WORK?
The plasma in your blood contains growth factors that support your body’s ability to regenerate tissue when you have a wound or illness. Research in Europe and the U.S. have shown that PRP, when isolated in the blood, can be used to expedite healing.
WHAT IS PRP FOR HAIR RESTORATION?
By isolating the plasma and growth factors and using it for treatment, our doctor is able to help men and women regrow their own hair without surgery. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis and the procedure produces less discomfort than other hair restoration procedures.
HOW IS PRP FOR HAIR RESTORATION PERFORMED?
The procedure for PRP therapy takes less than an hour for most men and women. EstePlastHair doctor draws a small amount of blood into a special tube. The tube is then placed in a centrifuge and spun to separate the plasma from the red blood cells. Your scalp is cleaned with antiseptic and the PRP is injected into the treatment area. A device with hundreds of tiny needles is used to create micro-perforations in your scalp. The microneedling allows the PRP to penetrate the deeper layers of the scalp and promote hair growth. In some cases, our doctor may apply PRP during or after the microneedling procedure.
For best results, our doctor may recommend follow-up treatments every two to four months.
PREPARING FOR PRP FOR HAIR RESTORATION
PRP for hair restoration is preferred by men and women who want a treatment that:
- Is quick and easy.
- Has fewer risks associated with adverse reactions.
- Triggers natural hair growth without surgery.
- Protects hair follicles from shrinking (miniaturization).
- Is appropriate for both men and women.
- Gives gradual, natural results.
BENEFITS OF PRP FOR HAIR RESTORATION
The day of your PRP treatment for hair loss, wash your hair and pay special attention to cleaning your scalp. Avoid using styling products, as these can interfere with the penetration of PRP into the scalp.
RECOVERY FROM PRP FOR HAIR RESTORATION
Your scalp may feel numb or sensitive after the PRP treatment and microneedling. The symptoms typically last only a few hours. PRP therapy requires no restriction on your activities.
IS PRP FOR HAIR RESTORATION RIGHT FOR ME?
To be considered for PRP for hair restoration, you should first work with your primary physician to determine the underlying cause of your hair loss. If you have a medical condition that causes hair loss, the improved hair volume after PRP therapy could be short lived. Once your physician determines that you do not have an underlying condition or the condition is managed, you may be a good candidate for PRP therapy. In general, our doctor will assess your hair volume, quality, and coverage to determine if PRP therapy is the best option for you.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR CONSULTATION
Your consultation is an opportunity to learn about your hair loss from an expert. Our doctor examines your scalp and hair, explaining his findings in a way that helps you feel confident about your choice to undergo PRP therapy and other hair restoration treatments. If PRP therapy for hair loss is right for you, our doctor explains the treatment and anticipated results.
If you’re tired of struggling with hair loss but you don’t want to deal with invasive surgeries, PRP may be the right option for you. Please contact EstePlastHair today. We offer PRP treatment for men and women in Turkey.
Mesotherapy for Hair Loss
Mesotherapy (mesos, for ‘middle,’ and therapeia, ‘to treat medically,’ in Greek) is a non-surgical treatment. It employs multiple pharmaceutical and homeopathic agents, plant extracts, vitamins and other ingredients. Dr Michel Pistor (1924-2003), from France founded the field of mesotherapy, after diligent clinical research, in 1952.
Many people, who are facing hair loss problem, try to find out painless hair fall solution(s) that could reduce the turnaround time for natural hair growth following effective medical treatment.
You can also call this hair fall treatment as ‘non-needle mesotherapy’.
In the procedure, the principle of ‘electroporation’ is used, where pores of skin are opened using a heating system and therapeutic solutions — small quantities of natural extracts, homeopathic agents and vitamins — are allowed to penetrate the scalp. The pores are, thereafter, closed using a cooling system.
This promotes hair growth in the best turnaround time possible.
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR MESOTHERAPY FOR HAIR?
Most hair loss is based on overproduction of certain hormones combined with a lack of nutrients. Come in for a hair loss consultation with one of our specialists to determine what course of action would best suit your needs. It is very likely that Mesotherapy can help you, as it has helped many thousands of others regain that youthful head of hair.
The Treatment Procedure
Mesotherapy is not just chemical or physical – rather it is a combination of both. Areas have to be demarcated on the scalp beforehand and a special blend of vitamins, minerals and amino acids are injected into the mesoderm. The chemical cocktail works like a bullet, which hits the nail on its head.
- A microinjection is used to deliver the medication to the demarcated parts of the scalp and this leads to the creation of elastin as well as collagen. With new collagen and elastin, there emerges the scope for growth of new hair.
- The active ingredients are meant to stimulate the organs and depending on the quality of the ingredients used the hair loss should reduce and new hair growth should start.
- Generally, there is a time release system in place, which helps improve blood circulation, stimulate the collagen, neutralise the effects of DHT, increase the size of the hair follicles, which will reduce the loss of hair and finally, stimulate the growth of new hair.
- There are two main active ingredients – Acetyl tetrapeptide-3 and Biochanin A. While AT3 will help reduce the inflammation, which will in turn allow for new hair to grow, the latter can help with the modulation of the conversion of testosterone. AT 3 also stimulates the remodelling of tissues, which will affect the manner in which the hair follicles grow. This signal for remodelling will ensure that the hair anchors better and has a longer and healthier life.
The actual procedure takes only about 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the area that needs to be covered. In most cases, at least ten sessions are required and the same has to be spaced out. While the first sessions need to be every two weeks, the subsequent ones can be spaced over two to three months. You will also need to undergo maintenance treatments, to make sure that your hair continues to look great.
Advantages of Mesotherapy for Hair Loss
What makes non-needle mesotherapy a boon for individuals suffering from hair loss is that the procedure is–
- Free of side-effects
- No bleeding.
The procedure is not time-consuming — it takes just about half-an-hour for one to complete a session, or sitting.
Besides, the advantage of using homeopathic agents in non-needle mesotherapy is manifold. Homeopathic agents cause no allergy, or hypersensitivity. They integrate naturally and completely into the tissues and they have accredited safety parameters and also efficacy of use.
Most patients require a minimum of 10 sessions to trigger increased hair growth. To jump start the process, it is recommended that patients schedule 2 treatments per week spaced about 2 weeks apart. Results will be evident between 2 and 3 months. After hair growth has been established, only maintenance treatments about every 3 months are needed thereafter.
Treatments can easily be done over a lunch break. Depending on the size of the area being treated, each treatment should take about 20 minutes. After treatment, patients can return to their normal activities.
Mesotherapy is used extensively in Europe, South America and the United States. The treatment is virtually painless and completely safe when done in a professional clinic. There is no need for anesthesia and there are no dressings required.
