PRP Growth Factors Therapy - Non Surgical Treatment
At DHI Scotland we use a new Non Surgical Treatment for hair restoration, the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). Activated PRP is injected into the area which is suffering from hair loss in order to stimulate hair growth.
PRP Hair Loss Treatment step by step:
A small amount of blood (less than 50 ml) is obtained from the patient
Platelet-Rich Plasma is isolated following the centrifugation of blood
PRP is activated with DNA activators (thrombin) and enriched with calcium ions (e.g. calcium chloride)
Activated PRP is injected into the area which is suffering from hair loss in order to stimulate hair growth
In which cases is PRP treatment recommended?
Ideal for men and women of all ages, PRP treatment is applied to maintain the existing hair growth achieved through hair strengthening. At the same time, the treatment helps develop new and perfectly healthy hairs from follicles that have stopped producing hair (re-stimulation of inactive hair follicles) or produce hair of a small diameter (fluff).
PRP treatment can be perfectly combined with DHI Direct Hair Implantation, applying to both the donor and the recipient area. This results in faster hair growth, strengthening of existing hair as well as faster and better healing of the donor area.
In addition, PRP treatment is ideal and is applied prophylactically to the first stages of hair dilatation due to androgenetic alopecia (when hair thinning is observed) and provides excellent results in cases of wheezy and diffuse alopecia.
In DHI, PRP treatment is completely safe since it is performed by experienced physicians and without any side effects since only the blood of the patient itself is used.
