PRP is recommended for the treatment of hair loss in men and women, alongside other treatments or on its own. For totally bald areas, the use of PRP is not recommended, unless these areas have been transplanted. Actually, PRP is used to promote the survival and the health of the transplanted hair. In people who have thinner hair, or areas on the scalp which are becoming lighter, PRP is definitely recommended.

But you need to remember that early intervention us the key to better managing hair density.

At Dermaskin, PRP is injected using an automated injection system, which reduces any discomfort associated with the treatment to a minimum (U225 System).

How many treatment sessions are required?

The basic protocol we now use is 4 sessions 15 days apart. Then, the suggested maintenance protocol is 1 to 4 sessions per year. A maintenance protocol is required in patients who have androgenic alopecia. For those who want to stimulate their hair and improve the quality of their hair, maintenance sessions will be done as required.

After a possible temporary increase in hair loss (expulsion of telogen hair), a very clear reduction of hair loss is usually experienced after the second session. Moreover, the texture of the hair improves, it becomes shinier and silkier. The scalp may become more sensitive and you may experience a tingling feeling linked to the revitalization. If there is new growth, it will be visible after 2 to 3 months.

What are the possible side effects and…?

Given that all the elements used in PRP treatment come solely from your own body, there is almost no risk of an allergic reaction or intolerance.

A sensation of heat is normal after treatment. Redness and slight edema will also be visible after the session, but these will die down within a few hours. Bruising is also possible. In order to avoid the risk of bruising, we recommend that you avoid aspirin, anti-inflammatory medication, alcohol and natural products for a few days prior to the treatment.

Get thicker eyelashes and eyebrows naturally

PRP, platelet-rich plasma, is a technique which aims to stimulate growth and increase the thickness of your hair. We can also use it on the eyebrows and eyelashes, as well as on hair.

PRP is extracted the same way as for hair, but the injection method will differ. In fact, for eyelashes, we need to protect the eyeballs with a metal shell which is applied to the cornea after a local anesthetic. This is painless. Then the injection is done with the automated U225 injection system. The root of the lashes is targeted in order to stimulate the thickness and the strength of the lashes. Light residual redness is visible along the lash line after the treatment and it will fade within a few hours. Vision is normal and the patient can drive after the procedure.

What is PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma)?

Platelet-rich plasma is a treatment using cells obtained from your own blood. The regenerative power of your own plasma on your body has been recognized all over the world . The more time passes, the more this treatment is appropriate with its spectacular results. Several medical fields use PRP, notably in the treatment of wounds, burn treatment, sports medicine, plastic surgery, and more.

PRP therapy consists in removing around 10 ml of your blood using a standard blood test and centrifuging it. This allows the blood plasma, which contains a very concentrated quantity of platelets and growth factors, to be separated. These natural components from your own body are then put to use in order to stop hair loss, and make hair denser and thicker.

What results can I expect to see?

After a possible temporary increase in hair loss (expulsion of telogen hair), a very clear reduction of hair loss is usually experienced after the second session. Moreover, the texture of the hair improves, it becomes shinier and silkier. The scalp may become more sensitive and you may experience a tingling feeling linked to the revitalization. If there is new growth, it will be visible after 2 to 3 months.
