Can PRP regrow hair?
CC PRP Active +is an advanced regenerative medicine practice powered by 9 growth factor concentrate.CC PRP Active + is a treatment using concentrated amount of platelets from the patient’s own blood, which is then injected back into the scalp. Platelets contain growth factors that attract stem cells to the area. Stem cells and the growth factors of the platelets stimulate hair regrowth. The most common form of hair loss in both men and women is called androgenic alopecia, which occurs due to genetically determined androgenic effects on the hair follicles. Androgenic alopecia is dependent on the androgenic substance dihydrotestosterone (DHT). The Hair follicles contain receptors for androgen (male sexual hormone). When these receptors are affected by DHT, two things happen. The growth phase is shortened and the hair follicle itself becomes smaller, which leads to shorter and thinner hair. Men can start losing their hair already in adolescence. However, it is more common for this to happen around the age of 30. First, one often discovers that the hair becomes thinner and later the scalp becomes increasingly visible. Even the hairline can creep up higher, and there are tabs, the characteristic high temples.Women with androgenic alopecia suffer from a more diffuse hair loss and rarely experience total hair loss. About 20-25% of all women in their 50s show signs of female androgenic alopecia. When hair follicles remain, CC PRP Active + can restore hair to its original size and reduce hair loss. In CC PRP Active + therapy, a small amount of blood is first collected from the client and captured in closed casket PRP lock tubes. The platelets are then concentrated by centrifugation of the blood. After local anesthesia, the platelet-rich plasma is introduced into the scalp through several small injections. The large number of platelets injected stimulates inactive hair follicles into an active growth phase. It can irritate the scalp for a few hours and slight swelling can sometimes be seen in the next few days. The treatment does not pose a risk of hypersensitivity since the platelets come from the patient's own blood. After the first treatment, it can be noted that hair loss decreases already after 2-3 weeks. After a month, you get their second treatment. Patients who have undergone PRP therapy have observed increased hair growth and thickness within 3-6 months. Return visits are booked for follow-up 6 months after the second reading.
