How does platelet-rich plasma work?
A blood sample is taken from the patient himself. The produce of this blood sample is treated in a cutting-edge device in order to cause platelet disruption and the release of platelet-derived growth factors.
PRP is injected at the dermis level. It has a stimulating effect on follicular units and the extraordinary potential to rehabilitate aging follicles, allowing them to produce quality resistant hair again. That is achieved by increasing vascularization in the area treated, favoring collagen production and counteracting the negative effect of free radicals, avoiding cell aging.
At the same time, PRP stimulates all the other follicular units so that they produce stronger, more resistant hair. Therefore, the PRP treatment is one of the treatments that offer more volume to your scalp hair.
The effect of platelet-rich plasma is mainly based on the fact that platelets contain many growth factors. These substances help generate new blood vessels in the injected area, which receives more nutrients that help increase cell and fiber proliferation. In the specific case of PRP injected in the scalp to treat alopecia, it improves hair quality and thickness. Therefore, we can notice an increase in hair density.
