Thus, significant hair loss also causes a decrease in self-esteem and well-being. These changes affect both women and men of all ages. They can be the result of atmospheric and genetic changes, or inadequate scalp care. Alopecia can occur both spontaneously and as an organism’s response to genetic conditions.

What is the hair treatment with plasma like?

Platelet-rich plasma is a concentrate obtained from own blood platelets in a small amount of plasma. It is obtained during centrifugation of blood, previously collected from the patient. The concentrate consists of valuable growth factors that cause skin renewal, stimulation of tissue regeneration and fibroblasts to produce new collagen.

This method is highly effective and safe, because it allows you to enjoy the natural process of revitalizing and regenerating the hair skin with the simultaneous use of a substance obtained from the patient’s blood. Along with mesotherapy, treatments with the use of platelet-rich plasma are very popular at our Clinic, which results mainly from the effectiveness of the method. Platelet-rich plasma in the treatment of alopecia is an innovative method that uses the patient’s blood plasma.

This substance consists of valuable active elements that stimulate the regeneration and biostimulation of the scalp. Growth factors are responsible for stimulating the work of hair follicles, reduce the amount of hair loss and stimulate the growth of new hair. It is also worth noting that the treatment with plasma for hair loss uses the patient’s own blood. Thanks to this, the applied substance does not cause inflammation and allergies that could worsen the condition of the hair.

Platelet-rich plasma is also widely used due to its properties. It allows you to speed up the healing of wounds, scars and unsightly skin changes. Thanks to this, it enjoys such great recognition by aesthetic medicine. Patients can therefore enjoy the spectacular effects of stimulating the hair follicle stem cells to transition from dormancy to activity. The presence of active platelets causes the scalp to be more moisturized and the work of the sebaceous glands is regulated. As a result, the formation of seborrhea is prevented.

Indications for surgery

Scalp mesotherapy with the use of platelet-rich plasma is a procedure recommended primarily to patients with excessive alopecia, hair loss caused by improper nutrition, stress, pregnancy and lactation. Treatments can also take a prophylactic form and prevent the problem from getting worse. Platelet-rich plasma is also used in people who have noticed thinning hair on various parts of the head. The procedure can be performed on the top of the head, above the forehead and in the temporal area.

Plasma hair treatment can be used by both men and women of all ages. The main indication for therapy is the problem of excessive and rapid hair loss. The doctor may also order platelet-rich plasma therapy in patients who are struggling with alopecia areata, androgenic and telogen-related alopecia, weakening of the hair follicles, or with reduced hair growth.

Contraindications to the procedure

Patients who want to take advantage of the treatment for hair with plasma must remember, that like any aesthetic medicine measure, there are several contraindications that make it impossible to carry out the therapy in this case. They include, among others pregnancy, lactation, taking medications that thins the blood and problems with blood clotting.

Doctors advise against performing the procedure also in the case of people who struggle with active malignant tumors, immunosuppression, active viral phases of infectious diseases, or thrombocytopenia. Therefore, before making a decision to qualify the patient for the procedure, the doctor always carries out a thorough medical interview, which will allow to rule out possible contraindications to the therapy.

The course of the procedure

Hair treatment with platelet-rich plasma does not require special preparation on the part of the patient. The only thing to remember is that a week before injecting the preparation into the scalp, stop taking anticoagulants and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs – aspirin, diclofenac, ibuprofen, ketoprofen and naproxen. On the day of the procedure, it is worth drinking plenty of fluids (1.5 – 2 liters of water) and stopping alcohol.

Before starting the procedure, the doctor also refers the patient to a medical consultation with a trichologist, during which the specialist conducts a medical interview. He also performs a trichoscope examination of the hair and scalp, thanks to which he can thoroughly analyze the condition of the hair and detect the cause of the problem. It is also a way to eliminate possible contraindications to start the therapy.

Before the doctor applies platelet-rich plasma to the scalp, he takes a small amount of the patient’s blood and then places the collected substance in a special centrifuge. In this machine, the plasma is separated, along with the platelet concentrate, from the remaining blood components (red and white blood cells). Once the plasma is received, it is placed in a syringe and applied to the scalp. For this, small, thin and short needles are being used. Plasma is administered to the Patient exactly as it is during mesotherapy. Thanks to this, patients do not have to worry about the occurrence of extensive inflammation and redness.

Treatment of the scalp with platelet-rich plasma takes about 30-60 minutes and usually requires local anesthesia. Therefore, patients do not have to worry about unpleasant pain during the procedure. Thin needles, on the other hand, reduce the feeling of tingling, stinging and burning during the application of the substance. However, it is worth remembering that in order to enjoy satisfactory results, it is recommended to carry out a series of treatments – from 3 to 4 times every 4-6 weeks.

Convalescence after the procedure

The treatment for hair with plasma is almost non-invasive, thanks to which the patient can return to daily activities on the next day. It is worth remembering that immediately after plasma therapy, you should avoid washing your hair for about 12 hours, using the sauna, swimming pool and hot baths. You should also refrain from dyeing your hair during the next few days after the treatment. Doctors also recommend that you avoid the sun for about 6 weeks after the treatment, because it carries the risk of discoloration. Before exposing the scalp to UV radiation, it is also worth using a cream with sunscreen SPF +50.

The procedure lasts from half to one hour and is practically painless due to the fact that the patient receives local anesthesia. The entire therapy is carried out with the use of thin needles, which also reduce unpleasant pain.
During the procedure, a preparation made of the patient’s blood is used, thanks to which it is specific for the body and minimizes the risk of allergies and undesirable effects.

The results of the treatment

The results of the treatment for hair with plasma is primarily the regeneration of the scalp, which can be enjoyed after 3 – 6 months from the end of the treatment series. Platelet-rich plasma helps to gradually stop excessive hair loss and stimulates the growth of new hair bulbs. As a result, the Patient stops worrying about hair loss and can boast about a gradual thickening of the hair. The treatment is also very safe, because the plasma is obtained from the patient’s blood.

Plasma hair treatment is therefore a great proposition for people who want to reduce the problem of excessive hair loss and baldness. As a result, the hair becomes stronger and more dense. It is also a way to regenerate the hair structure and stimulate the growth of baby hair. It is also worth noting that platelet-rich plasma also acts on the hair follicles. Sometimes some people experience slight redness after the procedure and local tenderness. However, these symptoms are the body’s natural reaction to the administration of plasma and disappear a few hours after the procedure. After the therapy, you may also feel an increased feeling of scalp tightness in the place where the preparation was injected. It is also a natural phenomenon that indicates that the plasma has started working and is due to the release of growth factors from the platelets.
