Plasma is the fluid component of blood and makes up the majority of its volume. There are three types of blood cells in the plasma, red blood cells which carry oxygen, white blood cells which help fight infections, and platelets which are responsible for blood clotting, scab formation, wound healing, and repair. PRP is a plasma solution which contains about five times the concentration of the normal platelet level! After injury, platelets play a critical role in the healing response by releasing growth factors. Growth factors are a group of proteins that stimulate the growth of specific tissues. Many of these growth factors promote hair growth and so are commonly used as hair loss treatment for men and women.
At KLNIK Arthrex Angel PRP can be used in two ways, as a stand-alone therapy or an addition to hair transplantation.
Stand Alone Therapy :
For both men and women who have thinning hair but not enough thinning to be a candidate for hair transplantation. For men and women who cannot tolerate other medical treatments such as Propecia (finasteride) or Regaine (minoxidil), or who wish to use them in combination for added benefit.
As an add on to hair transplant surgery:
PRP enhances the body’s own natural healing after a transplant both in the donor and recipient area. If a patient has a limited amount of donor follicles and can only address part of the balding area in one surgery PRP can then be used as an accompaniment to stimulate hair growth in areas not transplanted.
