While most athletes favor platelet-rich plasma therapy due to its most amazing ability to speed up the healing process after the injury, Doctor Emrah Cinik finds PRP treatment to be very effective in plastic surgery and helping hair growth.
This therapy includes PRP injections, and they are great at promoting soft-tissue healing and encouraging hair growth. With little to almost no side effects at all, PRP treatment is now one of the most effective ways to reduce inflammation, encourage healing, and help patients recover after a hair transplant.
Platelet-rich plasma PRP therapy is a three-step medical treatment for hair loss. It includes drawing blood from a person, processing it, and then directly injecting it into the scalp.
What makes it such an effective method for hair growth is the fact that it naturally triggers hair growth. PRP treatment maintains natural hair growth by increasingly supplying blood to the hair follicle. This directly increases the thickness of the hair shaft.
According to Istanbul-based Dr. Emrah Cinik, a renowned and respected provider in the field of hair loss treatments, PRP treatments are used for problems such as healing injured muscles, ligaments, and tendons, but it’s also a very effective treatment for hair loss.
This therapy is especially effective as a complement to hair transplants. Aside from thickening existing hair, PRP increases wound healing growth factors that accelerate hair roots growth after the transplantation.
That’s how Dr. Cinik discovered that PRP treatments are an effective way to address baldness in men. There are research studies that support his findings, like the one published in the Stem Cells Translational Medicine journal. It proved that PRP treatments helped hair growth after transplantation.
Platelets are red blood cells that are directly responsible for several different functions in the body.
Those functions are:
What makes PRP treatments so effective is the fact that high concentrations of platelets can be so effective in repairing tissue damage and encouraging wound healing.
The procedure requires three steps:
Step 1 – blood drawing – drawn blood is put into a centrifuge, a specialized device designed to spin at high speeds with the main goal aimed at separating blood components and fluids by their density.
Step 2 – separating blood into three layers – the centrifuge takes about ten minutes to separate the blood into layers:
Step 3 – injecting the platelet-rich plasma – which is injected directly into the marked areas of the scalp to stimulate, increase, and maintain hair growth.
The results differ from person to person, but the treatment is effective in most cases. There are only a few reported side-effects, such as:
Depending on the particular condition, or the type of injury, a PRP treatment offers many benefits such as:
Even though PRP treatments are still a relatively new procedure, they have already given amazing results. Still, studies show that there is not enough scientific proof to support the use of PRP therapy in hair restoration.
The more patients undergo it with success, the more it will be used in the future to help people fight baldness and hair loss. Aside from that, it’s one of the most popular procedures at Dr. Cinik’s hair transplant clinic in Turkey.
