Autologous blood against a hairy problem.
The PRP autologous blood treatment
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma – thrombocyte-rich blood plasma) is a natural source of cell regeneration. Blood platelets or thrombocytes contain all the biological components and growth factors (proteins that regulate cell growth) to restore hair root cells and activate blood-vessel forming cells. This ensures a better circulation and therefore an optimal nutritional supply for the scalp.

A blood platelet concentrate is obtained from autologous blood through centrifugation and filtering (plasmapheresis). This concentrate is immediately injected into the scalp regions affected by hair loss.
The growth factors are released with an artificially induced activation of the thrombocytes. This stimulates the formation of new cells. The “growth factors” are here introduced directly into the scalp. This specifically supports the body in cell regeneration.

PRP can stop hair loss and stimulate new hair growth. In the process, no side effects or allergic reactions are expected, since the treatment takes place with the body’s own blood. PRP therapy is suitable for men and women alike and is well tolerated regardless of their age.
PRP treatment is provided as an independent therapy against thinning hair and as a combination therapy, for instance combined with the use of micro-needling.

For a long time, people thought that hair follicle cells did not regenerate. For the first time, researchers of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia focused on the phenomenon whereby new hairs grow in the peripheral area of wounds. The result: Growth factors in cells that promote wound healing also stimulate the formation of new hair follicles.
The dermaroller has very fine titanium needles. Very small and barely perceptible punctures in the scalp stimulate growth factors in the cells. After a preliminary treatment with the dermaroller, the therapies below show significantly better results.
