Mesotherapy to Scalp
Growth factors in your own blood
Platelet Rich Plasma is the part of your own blood which has large amount of growth factors that can help the new follicles grow quickly and healthy.
The new scientific studies show the effectiveness of PRP mesotherapy to hairloss patients. Please follow the link to the one of Korean scientists/physicians published in Journal of Dermatology in year 2012.
Human blood contains mesenchymal stem cells and autologous blood products that contain essential and specific growth factors. Those assist in tissue regeneration and healing.
Published medical literature in Europe and the United States confirms the safety and use of PRP therapy. PRP therapy has established itself to be effective as a medical treatment method in the oral surgery, neurosurgery, plastic surgery, sports medicine and orthopedics for years with success.
In hair restoration, existing evidence shows that PRP therapy is a promising treatment option to promote hair growth.
Our experience for years showed an increase in hair growth rate with success. We both perform PRP to hairloss cases to decrease the hairloss and also during the hair transplantation to strengthen the scalp and increase the rate of hair growth.
How the mesotherapy performed?
Blood is drawn like you are having routine blood testing. The blood is centrifuged and the PRP is separated and removed from the rest of the blood.
The PRP is taken from your body and is specially prepared by spinning down the blood cells to a high concentration. After centrifugation, the platelets and other vital growth proteins raise to the top of the tube. Under a topical anesthesia, a special micro needle is used to stimulate the dermis of the scalp. This micro needle stimulation causes microtrauma to the dermis that induces other healing and growth repair cells into action. The highly concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP) is then injected into the scalp.
Who can benefit?
The PRP contains many growth factors that stimulate the hair follicle’s growth. PRP can be used preoperatively, intraoperatively, or post operatively. Some patient’s chose to have PRP performed every three (3) to four (4) months as we experience that regular or semiannual PRP treatments can stimulate hair growth.
What it means?
BOTOX® is today's gold standard for treating wrinkles and fine lines, and is accepted as the most effective agent to treat migraines, and excessive sweating.
Nowadays, BOTOX is being used to slow down hair loss with male pattern baldness especially in younger men, and for thinning hair in women.
How the injection performed?
BOTOX® is injected to the scalp area where the hairloss mainly is. The surgeon performs the injections after planning the area during the physical consultation. The procedure takes 30 minutes.
Who can benefit?
Young men having male pattern hairloss and women facing hair thinning can benefit with this treatment plan.
How it works?
In a recent research, it is shown that 75% of men who received BOTOX injections to their scalp in every six months experienced a 20% increase in hair growth, and a 40% experienced a decrease in their hair loss. The period of the treatment plan was 2 years showing these results.
The study participants received 100/150 units of Botox injection every 6 months. Especially for younger aged men in the beginning stages of male pattern baldness, Botox injections is a valuable alternative.
