PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a natural resource for cell renewal. Platelets contain only biological components and various growth factors which help restore hair root cells and activate blood vessel-forming cells. This ensures an improved circulation and as thus, an optimal nutriment supply of the scalp skin tissue. The ‘growth factors’ are therefore directly incorporated into the tissue. This supports especially the body`s cell regeneration. PRP can stop hair loss and stimulate the growth of new hair. Side effects or allergic reactions are not to be expected, since the treatment is carried out with autologous blood.
The treatment is suitable and very well tolerated by both men and women regardless of the age.The PRP therapy is offered either as a stand-alone therapy for thinning hair or as a combination with a Derma Pen (micro-needling) treatment.
Micro-Needling: Stimulates Hair Growth
For a long time the opinion existed that no renewal of the hair follicle cells takes place. Researchers of the Pennsylvania University, Philadelphia, have for the first time studied the phenomenon of new hair growth in the edge region of wounds. The results of the studies have shown that the cells growth factors promote wound healing and stimulate the formation of new hair follicles.
The Derma-Pen is made out of very fine titanium needles. Very small, barely noticeable incisions in the scalp skin are made to stimulate the cell growth factors. The subsequent therapies show significantly better results after a pretreatment with the Derma- Pen.
