Hair PRP

What is Hair PRP?

PRP is consisting of the initials of the words Platelet Rich Plasma. Platelets are cell fragments that play a role in blood clotting. Plasma, on the other hand, consists of liquid components such as protein, minerals, hormones, wastes, and water. Developed by taking advantage of the repair and healing effect of platelets on damaged tissues, PRP is applied as a rejuvenation treatment in many parts of the body. Platelets provide the healing effect with the growth factors they secrete . This feature of platelets has also inspired PRP to become a method used in the treatment of hair loss.

PRP hair is not a treatment option that can be effective against permanent hair loss. It does not have the ability to regrow hair by forming hair follicles.

Hair PRP is the process of taking the person’s own blood, enriching it with platelets , and injecting it into the hair follicles. PRP, which stimulates the hair follicles to take action, has been accepted and interested as a supportive treatment option that can be effective in reducing hair loss for both women and men. It has been observed that better results are obtained when applied together with hair mesotherapy, which nourishes the hair follicles with the vitamins and minerals they need by injecting them into the scalp .
