How is the PRP Treatment Carried Out?

Up to 10 cc’s of blood is taken from the person to whom PRP therapy is going to be applied. The cc’s of blood taken are separated and red blood is obtained. The white blood cells, thrombocytes, coagulating agents and PGF’s undergo a specific procedure and are brought into a plasma state, needed for the PRP therapy. The plasma obtained after this process is then injected back into the person, and this is called the PRP procedure. The plasmas that are applied to the skin with this procedure have the effect of mobilizing the hair cells and making them reproduce and release growth agents.

PRP therapy is a procedure that takes 30 minutes on average. During and after the application, there is no pain, scarring or incisions. The procedure is quite a painless one. It can be used not only in hair transplantation but also in other areas of health. The person can have better and longer-lasting results with this procedure by repeating the procedure once a month for the first three months and yearly after that, with the advice of an expert.

The person who undergoes this treatment can go back to routine life and working life in the same day.
