Arguably, hair has been one of the major aspects of youth. You might also be a part of this search, and you to might be asking yourself, what is the solution for me?
PRP and Mesotherapy are two relatively new discoveries in the hair cosmetic industry, currently, these therapies are being advertised as the magical treatment for hair loss and they are increasing in popularity day by day. But, What are they? How do they work? Does it actually work? These are all questions that will be answered in this article.
What are they?
First, Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an extract from a person's blood. Human blood consists of two major components:
1- Red Blood cells, which make up about 45% of a human's blood.
2- Plasma, which makes up about 55% of a person's blood.
The platelet-rich plasma that will be separated from the blood contains a high concentration of platelets, cytokines, and growth factors which will aid in combating hair loss.
Second, Mesotherapy is a cocktail of pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical drugs that delivers a high concentration of vitamins, minerals, and proteins in the mesoderm layer of the scalp.
How is the procedure?
For PRP, a person’s blood will be taken to be later centrifuged. This centrifuge procedure will separate the plasma from the red blood cells. At the end, PRP will be separated and aspirated by a needle.
As for mesotherapy, either the cocktail of the drugs are premade, or the doctor will create the mixture.
In Arina Center, both therapies will be delivered by micro-needling into the scalp.
What are the possible benefits of PRP and Mesotherapy?
Through many mechanisms, that have yet to be understood, both PRP and Mesotherapy are used to treat hair loss and thinning. The modes of action can be summarized in the points mentioned below:
Stimulate hair follicles.
Increase hair density and thickness.
Increasing blood circulation.
Providing necessary nutrients.
Delay hair fall.
The researchers have yet to discover the full potential of such treatments, data around the world shows that up to 30% of patients have witnessed a noticeable improvement after 2-5 sessions, and 10% of patients have shown a substantial improvement that was apparent by comparing before and after photographs.
