PAI Medical Group offers its clientele several solutions for hair loss. Among these solutions, the PRP (platelet-rich plasma) hair treatment is a success due to its proven effectiveness. Would you like to know more about this innovative hair treatment? Here’s some information on the subject!

What is PRP Treatment?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is a hair biostimulation technique that uses the patient’s platelet-rich plasma to stimulate the scalp and improve natural hair growth.

This technique, an advance that is already common in sports medicine and traumatology, draws mainly on the tissue regeneration potential of platelets. Thanks to the effective results obtained with this treatment, it has been integrated into several fields, including hair treatments.

To obtain platelet-rich plasma, PAI Medical Group first collects a small amount of blood from the patient. This blood undergoes a centrifugation process, allowing to isolate the most suitable platelet-rich plasma (or PRP) for treatment.

The expert at PAI Medical Group inserts the resulting platelet-rich plasma into the areas of the scalp affected by increased hair loss, volume loss, or thinning hair by micro-injections. Because of this procedure, it is virtually a pain-free process.

Platelet Rich Plasma: You Become Your Treatment!

PRP treatment introduces the patient’s plasma, thus avoiding the possible effects of rejection by the organism. The only side effect may be slight redness at the injection areas, disappearing quite naturally after the procedure.

In addition, because it is a minimally invasive technique, it does not require any recovery time afterward so that you can resume your daily activities immediately. However, it is not recommended to do any sports (including swimming), visit saunas, apply heat directly to the area or massage the scalp 24 hours after the procedure.

PRP Treatment: What Are the Results?

Three main phases divide the results of the PRP hair treatment:

  • Tissue regeneration is activated.
  • The stimulation of the formation of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin.
  • The improvement of the blood circulation in the hair follicles.

Thanks to these results, hair loss is halted, and patients will begin to notice the effect.  Subsequently, an increase in the density, thickness, and quality of the hair is noticeable over weeks and treatments.

Is PRP Treatment Right for Me?

Essentially, patients suffering from increased hair loss, lack of volume, or density can undergo PRP hair treatment. They should also note that this treatment is effective for both men and women

Of course, when patients start treatments at an early stage of hair loss, they get effective results noticeable more rapidly.

PRP hair treatment is not a substitute for hair transplants if you suffer from androgenic alopecia; it will be effective in tandem with hair transplants by stimulating your scalp and helping new hair growth after the hair transplant. The PRP treatment will not result in the appearance of new hair.
