Platelet Rich Plasma Benefits

What is Platelet Rich Plasma?

Platelet Rich Plasma or prp hair London is a capillary regeneration technique, even often considered a medicine, which is indicated for people with incipient alopecia in order to stop minor or specific hair loss problems.

It is an innovative treatment that can be applied in isolation for certain types of alopecia, or in combination with hair graft treatments.

There is currently enough scientific evidence on how it helps to strengthen hair, contrary to what happens with other hair treatments.

Its application at the capillary level acts by stimulating the formation of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, and at the same time increases vascularization at the level of the hair follicle, so this treatment, as we have commented, is especially indicated to stop hair loss and enhance hair loss. regeneration in cases of moderate hair loss or hair miniaturization.

Above all, it stands out because it provides more thickness to the hair, which makes us gain more density.

How the PRP works

The use of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) consists in the extraction of small amounts of blood from the patient; this blood is subjected to a specific centrifugation treatment to separate platelet cells from blood cells, rich in growth factors.

This controlled centrifugation process takes about 9 minutes and the platelet-enriched plasma becomes naturally fortified with growth factors, anti-inflammatory molecules, and cell signaling elements.

Once the portion containing the platelet-rich plasma is extracted, it is injected into the area to be treated by means of microinjections into the scalp in a practically painless way.

Once the treatment is finished, the patient can return to normal activity immediately, without their visit to the clinic representing an impediment in their daily life.

Platelet Rich Plasma not only gives an extra boost to our scalp. This treatment is also used to treat other areas of the body, from the hair to the knee, so it is common to find it in other types of clinics.

Currently there are aesthetic clinics where you can find this type of treatment for other parts of the body, as it can help revitalize those areas that need extra help for their proper functioning.

Platelet Rich Plasma Benefits

According to the numerous studies carried out, Platelet Rich Plasma, due to its high growth factor, stimulates the cells responsible for hair growth, strengthening it in its weakest areas and obtaining resistant, strong and thick hair.

The use of Platelet Rich Plasma for hair problems is novel, but for quite some time it has been used in other medical and surgical practices to improve tissue regeneration and accelerate wound healing.

Both platelet-rich plasma and growth factors are autologous, that is, they are extracted from the patient’s own blood, so there is no rejection problem.  Even so, the necessary analyzes and measures are previously taken into account so that the process is as safe as possible and does not cause any type of contraindication.

Our medical team is specialized in the use of this hair regeneration technique, as well as in the rest of the treatments related to the care of our hair.

Hair graft in UK

Hair grafting is currently the only way to recover hair in those areas where it has been lost. While the rest of the treatments are maintenance treatments, the hair graft is the only one that makes the hair grow again in those areas where it had been lost.

This is achieved through the FUE technique, which extracts the follicular units from the donor area to implant in the recipient area. It is a practically painless intervention, where the most painful is the moment of anesthesia; for that reason we offer the pre-anesthesia service, which reduces this pain by up to 80%

With a duration that is estimated between 6 or 8 hours, sometimes more, we can see the first effects of the hair graft before six months, although the final result is one year.
