As a hair transplantation centre dedicated to giving our patients the best results in hair transplantation, we always continue to use the latest technologies and the latest methods. Therefore, our first hair transplantation centre in Turkey has developed a new method to considerably increase the healing rate after hair transplantation and the survival rate of grafts by carrying out PRP-supported hair transplantation. Through this revolutionary approach in hair transplantation, we have ensured faster healing rates in our patients and increased the survival rate and the quality of transplanted hair grafts.
What is the platelet-rich plasma therapy?
PRP means Platelet Rich Plasma. This concentrated liquid which is derived from the individual’s own blood contains large amounts of growth factors and nutrient proteins. When these substances are given to the skin and hair, revitalization and cell renewal occur in these regions. The aim of this procedure is to stimulate transplanted hair follicles and to improve revitalization, cell regeneration and revascularization by injecting the PRP fluid under the skin in a hairy region. This way, existing hair is preserved and hair loss ends, hair becomes vibrant and voluminous, weak hair follicles grow and become normal hair.
How Is PRP Done?
In the PRP
application, 8-10 cc blood is taken from the patient subjected to the
application. The blood is put into special PRP tubes and processed in the
device called centrifuge for 15 minutes at a high rate. In the blood taken
after the procedure, there are approximately 200,000 platelets per millimeter
in normal blood, this value is 3-4 times higher in the treated PRP fluid. This
part is injected under the tissue with a special needle (4-6 mm mesotherapy
needle) at intervals of one cm. Furthermore, the survival and growth rate after
transplantation of hair follicles removed from the donor area and prepared for transplantation are
increased by submerging them into concentrated PRP liquid.
The PRP process, taking
blood, processing the blood in the centrifuge device (while the blood is
processed, our patient waits for 15 min), and subcutaneous injection after
microfiltration can last up to 30 min in total.
Injecting the PRP fluid under the skin in the PRP process may lead to slight burns. However, in the PRP process carried out during hair transplantation, no pain is felt since local anesthesia has been applied beforehand. It does not cause swelling or any bruises. The redness goes away in 10 min after the application. Since the PRP fluid is derived from the patient’s own blood, it is unlikely that discomforts such as the body rejecting the substance, disease transmission through blood, or allergies occur.
