The PRP Hair Regrowth is the most promising use of PRP in treating alopecia. The high concentration of platelet usually in the range of five to ten times, when deposited into the scalp releases a large amount of bioactive proteins called the growth factors. This is a group of growth factors containing the platelet derived growth factor ( PDGF), and the vascular endothelial growth factor, both of which have a positive effect on the growth of the hair follicles.
PDGF has the function of helping to stimulate the cell division and the cell growth. It helps to bring about angiogenesis, meaning the sprouting of new blood vessel. It is believed that hair lost is due to decreased circulation to the hair follicle as one of the factors, other than the 5HT that attack the follicle. The vascular endothelial growth factor forms the chemical signal of the cell and its presence brings about angiogenesis.
The increase of blood vessels means increased circulation, and increased delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the target site. In so doing it signaled the increased rate of regeneration and restoration of the vitality of the hair follicles.
Our doctor in the clinic has been doing this popular treatment procedure frequently. Usually a roller of tiny needles is used to roll over the scalp so as to bring about the creation of tiny wound over the alopecia area. The fundamental of doing this is to send the message to the hair follicle to start the healing process.
Then and only then, we start to deposit the PRP to the alopecia area to enhance further by stimulating the stem cell inside the hair follicle.
The PRP is used together as an adjunctive therapy tool together with other treatment to bring about the best possible result. This is to say that it is used as a multi-layered and multifaceted approach to a particular problem, here is the alopecia issue.
Other concomitant therapy includes the use of light therapy and mesotherapy together with other skin care regime as a total package. Usually no treatment can work optimally by itself standing alone. A combination therapy always works the best.
