Hair PRP

Why Should You Opt For Hair PRP Treatment?

Turkey’s successes in the hair transplant industry have taken the world by storm, with an increasing number of international patients flocking to Istanbul for hair transplant operations. However, hair transplant clinics in Turkey have also continued to offer a range of non-surgical treatments for hair loss. One example of this is the PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, treatment, which is available as part of SHIFT’s selection of services.

Hair PRP involves using your own cells, thus no risks!

What is PRP?

Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP, treatment involves drawing the patient’s own blood, isolating the platelet-rich part and then injecting this back into the patient’s scalp. It is thought that platelet-rich plasma encourages healthy hair growth due to its high concentration of growth factors.

What does a PRP treatment involve?

PRP involves extracting a small blood sample from the arm of a patient and placing this into a centrifuge for around 12 minutes. Once removed from the centrifuge, there will be three separate levels: platelet-rich plasma, platelet-poor plasma and red blood cells. The platelet-rich plasma is then separated and injected back into the scalp of the patient to encourage hair growth.

A PRP treatment will not normally take more than an hour, and should involve only a minimal amount of discomfort. There are no significant post-treatment precautions to observe following a PRP session, and patients will be able to return to their normal lives without problems.

It is normally necessary to perform more than one PRP session in order to achieve the best results. Most patients would be advised to have one session monthly for a series of several months and then to do follow-up ‘maintenance’ sessions every few months after that.

What are the advantages of PRP?

PRP is one of a small number of non-surgical hair restoration methods, alongside Minoxidil, Finasteride and temporary cosmetic solutions such as keratin fibre sprays. In most patients, PRP has been found to boost hair growth and improve the overall aesthetic appearance of the hair, but only while the treatment is continued.

PRP is helpful in the sense that it is not a particularly invasive treatment, it does not involve a long period of downtime and it does not imply significant changes to the patient’s routine.

What are the disadvantages of PRP?

The main disadvantage of PRP is that it is only a temporary solution, and so it will not alter the genetic processes that first led to the patient’s hair loss. Like Minoxidil and Finasteride, the beneficial effects will only continue insofar as the course of treatment continues.

Another disadvantage of PRP is that it will not necessarily achieve equally good results on all patients. It will normally achieve the most striking results on patients who are still in the early stages of hair loss.

Finally, some patients may not necessarily be good candidates for PRP treatment: for example, if they suffer from a hormone imbalance, an autoimmune disorder, or are heavy users of cigarettes, alcohol or controlled substances. A good hair transplant clinic will take such factors into consideration when proposing a course of treatment.

PRP in hair transplant operations

As well as being available as a standalone treatment, PRP can be used in combination with a hair transplant (during the procedure, and also in the months following this, if the patient chooses to do so). SHIFT will apply PRP to the patient’s scalp after completing the rest of the operation. This creates optimum conditions for the newly transplanted grafts, while also boosting the overall condition of the scalp area.

PRP treatments in Turkey 

PRP is widely used in Turkey as a complement to surgical and non-surgical hair restoration solutions and also as a standalone treatment. Turkey’s emphasis on providing high-quality aesthetic medical solutions means that PRP treatment in Turkey is of a very good standard.

PRP at SHIFT

SHIFT has always taken pride in offering patients an all-inclusive experience, drawing on the many different treatment options available in Turkey today to offer patients the best possible experience and results. The team will include PRP treatments as part of every operation as standard, as evidence of their commitment to going the extra mile to achieve the best results for patients. In addition to this, the team can also perform PRP treatments on patients either in the months following their operation or as a standalone treatment.

SHIFT places a strong level of importance on treating every patient as an individual, working to achieve the best possible results for them in the most comfortable and accommodating setting. This is one of many factors which sets SHIFT Hair Transplant apart from other hair transplant clinics in Turkey.
