Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for is an exciting non-surgical therapy option for patients requiring stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions. PRP is blood that has been concentrated with platelets.
These concentrated platelets are rich in protein and growth factors which can help elevate circulation to the hair follicle, stimulate the follicles to grow and even thicken hair shafts. This non-surgical hair restoration treatment is designed to reverse hair miniaturisation seen in common hair loss cases such as Androgenetic Alopecia.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is the newest breakthrough in medical hair restoration and follicular regeneration in Turkey. Dr. Songül Alci is one of the few hair transplant doctors in Turkey pioneering in this new technique and has produced the most successful results to date.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) procedure
PRP for hair loss treatment in Turkey is performed by taking a small amount of the patient’s blood, concentrating and separating the blood components and producing Platelet Rich Plasma.
The presence of growth factors or protein – as many as 1100 – in four percent of our blood on the surface of the platelets can improve and regenerate hair by providing nutrition and promoting new blood supply to the follicle – increasing hair shaft size. Moreover, studies have shown that the growth factors in PRP reduce inflammation in the scalp and turn on follicular stem cells.
