This treatment is offered in our clinics of:
Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, is composed of blood plasma with an increased concentration of platelets. We find an immense reservoir of bioactive proteins, mainly growth factors, which are essential to initiate and accelerate tissue repair and regeneration. These bioactive proteins initiate the healing of connective tissues such as tendons and ligaments and thus promote the creation of new blood vessels and stimulate the healing process of the follicles needed to regrow your hair.
A small amount of blood is taken from the patient. This blood is then centrifuged and the PRP is extracted. This process increases platelet concentration and growth factors by 500%. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) consists of multiple superficial injections into the scalp of blood serum microdroplets from which red blood cells and white blood cells have been removed to retain only the platelets. Once injected under the scalp, platelets release very strong growth factors that act on the hair follicles to stimulate their development and slow down their aging. The quality of the hair is therefore greatly improved (texture, thickness, pigment) and density, especially if baldness is at an initial stage and it is still possible to reverse the process.
The PRP treatment is for anyone suffering from a mild to moderate stage of androgenetic alopecia (hereditary baldness) or wishing to improve the quality of her hair.
Any patient undergoing a hair transplant is also a candidate for this treatment to improve the survival rate of the grafts and stimulate more quickly the regrowth.
Step 1 preparation. Step 2 Preparation of the scalp with local anesthesia and disinfection of the areas to be injected. Step 3 Injection into the balding areas with micro needles. An amount of 0.1 ml to every square centimeter at a depth of 2 mm.
The treatment protocol varies from one individual to another depending on the sex and severity of baldness, but it usually requires 3 monthly sessions. Then treatment every six months will be necessary to maintain and improve the results. It is indeed impossible to stop baldness permanently because of its hormonal and hereditary origin, hence the importance of rigorous monitoring and maintenance sessions.
The treatment is simple, fast, painless and has no recovery time.
(See below) the pre and post treatment.
General: Pregnant women, breastfeeding, cancer, serious or local infections, platelet dysfunction syndrome, lack of platelets, oral cortisone intake or recent cortisone infiltration, anti-inflammatory or antiplatelet regimen in the last week and allergy to anesthetic.
Specific: Thyroid Dysfunction and malnutrition or other diseases contributing to hair loss.
After the treatment :
The rate of serious complications is very rare:
Infections 1 out of 50,000 injections. The other possible reactions that have been observed are all minor:
Allergic reaction to anesthetic, temporary pain, vagal reaction, puncture of another structure (vessels, nerves), calcification at injection sites and formation of scar tissue.
The Mediterranean diet, also called Cretan diet or Mediterranean diet is a traditional food practice in several countries around the Mediterranean Sea characterized by the abundant consumption of fruits, vegetables, legumes, cereals, aromatic herbs and olive oil, a moderate consumption of dairy products, eggs and wine, limited consumption of fish and low consumption of meat.
Opting for an anti-inflammatory diet reduces the chances of suffering from cardiovascular disease, asthma, Alzheimer’s, cancer and autoimmune disease. In addition, this semi-vegetarian diet increases life expectancy, strengthens the immune system and makes it easier for the body to adapt to changes in the environment. Chronic inflammation can be caused by junk food, so it is strongly advised to reduce the consumption of processed foods and eat more often plant foods. The glycemic index should be monitored since a correlation is to be established between foods with a high glycemic index and inflammation. Thus, foods with a low glycemic index and foods rich in Omega-3 and Zinc are preferred. We offer a short list of anti-inflammatory foods and pre-inflammatory foods.
Finally, although the diet that helps to reduce inflammation is quite large, inflammatory foods are often associated with an unhealthy diet. Weight loss is not a goal of this change in eating habits, but it is not surprising to notice one among those who used to eat a lot of foods in the list of inflammatory foods. . In short, it is not only inflammation that is likely to be treated with the adoption of this list, but a better overall health.
