The FDA-approved, popular and safe PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) method is used as a solution for dermal conditions, especially scalp problems. PRP solution is an organic cocktail made from the patient’s own blood. In other words, PRP solution is free of chemical agents and is regarded as a safe method for only using the organic cocktail derived from the patient’s blood product. PRP is frequently used for skin rejuvenation and treating various dermal problems with mesotherapy sessions during and after the hair transplant procedure.
PRP Assisted FUE Hair Transplant is a type of manipulative procedure employed with the similar principles of rejuvenation, treating and keeping hair alive. In FUE hair transplant, hair follicles collected from the donor site are immersed inside a solution before completing the transfer. The surgeon performing the procedure will collect hair follicles one by one and then keep them in this solution. During such operations we noticed that hair follicles are rendered inactive and eventually die as they wait in the solution. The rate of follicle death can reach 15% on most occasions. Weak or dead hair follicles do not survive and we understand that existing capillary vessels are inadequate in nourishing the follicles.
Protecting hair follicles
PRP helps improve this process by keeping hair follicles alive for longer periods. In fact, PRP helps revitalise hair follicles weakened during the transfer process. Therefore, Hair PRP improves the number of surviving hair follicles in the solution and also increases the rate of successful transplants to the recipient site.
Nutritive agents and VEGF Hormone
The nutritive agents secreted by the cells injected with the PRP method following the hair transplant nourishes and develops hair follicles. PRP eliminates the nutritional problems of newly transplanted hair follicles. PRP also contains the VEGF hormone, which promotes the development of new blood vessels around the hair follicle. Briefly, PRP improves the survival rate of hair follicles kept inside the solution during the FUE method and also increases the rate of successful transplants.
