PRP Hair Restoration
Growth factors found in PRP include several intracellular structures such as glycogen, lysosomes, and alpha granules that promote the healing and repair process. These help to reawaken the activity of the hair follicles and promote new hair growth. The use of PRP is scientifically shown to increase hair count, hair thickness, and the growth phase of the hair cycle.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy stimulates hair growth through vascularization and angiogenesis and encourages hair follicles to extend the duration of the anagen phase of the growth cycle. PRP therapy for hair loss is shown to increase blood supply to the hair follicle, triggering natural hair growth.
PRP for hair regrowth begins with a standard blood draw from the patient’s arm. The tube of blood is put into a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the plasma. Then the plasma, rich in platelets, is removed from the tube and injected directly into a patient’s scalp at the hair follicles. Injections are typically spread across a half-inch area of thinning hair to ensure dense coverage.Treatments are typically performed monthly for the first three to four months, and then every three to six months thereafter. This schedule is optimal for stimulating hair growth factors and stem cells associated with reducing hair fallout. PRP has proven to combat hair loss in more than 70% of cases.
Exosomes Hair regrowth process.
By injecting exosomes and growth factors, it has been clinically shown to help regenerate and regrow hair as a treatment for hair loss in both men and women in the earlier stages of hair loss.
Exosomes are stem cells per se. Instead, they are the building blocks of such. They generate within their cells of origin if the multivesicular body fuses with the cell membrane, thereby releasing intraluminal vesicles as exosomes. These small cellular products contain both RNA and, even of greater import, mRNA; the initiator of protein manufacturing.
These protein building blocks' roles are dependent on their cell of origin. Many act as signalers for bodily functions, such as coagulation, as well as cellular growth to facilitate said bodily functions. Such signaling and growth factors, studies currently show, are a result of the exosome's origin. Near all, however, have a number of useful growth factors/signalers:
MIP-1: A recruiter of mononuclear cells
VEGF: A stimulator to encourage blood vessel formation
SCF: An encourager of stem cell and melanocyte growth
FGF: A growth factor that signals cells to encourage biological development
TGFß3: A gene variant that, among other things, converts inflammatory T Cells into anti-inflammatory T-Cells
