Capillary PRP in Madrid
Platelet Rich Plasma: reactivate your hair
Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is one of the most used treatments by Dr. Espinosa Custodio due to it’s excellent results. It is one of the treatments that can be performed after diagnosis. It has revolutionized the capacity of medicine due to its regenerative properties and its multiple applications in different specialties from traumatology to gynecology, passing through aesthetic medicine and hair medicine.
It involves the application of the patient’s own enriched plasma in the area of the scalp to be treated. This plasma contains growth factors and fibroblasts that favor the creation of collagen and tissue regeneration thanks to an improvement in blood capillarization. It is especially recommended for the treatment of low capillary density (very fine hair), and also as a complementary treatment to strengthen capillary surgery.
A revolutionary treatment
PRP is a simple and reliable treatment for androgenic alopecia, with high satisfaction among our patients. It is a great advance in capillary medicine in Madrid.
The patient’s blood is extracted, from which the PRP will be collected through centrifugation, which separates the plasma fraction from the rest of the blood elements. The plasma is activated with growth factors and injected into the areas that will be treated. It is a non-invasive, fast, completely natural and safe procedure, since it is an autotransfusion. There is no possibility of rejection: it is the patient’s own blood.
Each patient evolves differently, but the results of PRP are already visible from the third session. After the sixth, the difference is already noticeable. In cases of more pronounced alopecia, we can combine PRP with other treatments such as mesotherapy to accelerate results.
Hair PRP steps in Madrid
1. Extraction: Taking blood to obtain a sample.
2. Centrifugation: once the sample is obtained, it is centrifuged at 2800-3100 rpm for 9-10 min. At the end of the centrifugation the sample Is ready for activation.
3. Application of PRP: PRP can be injected intradermally through microinjections, where functional skin cells abound, the remaining amounts of PRP can be injected as a coating in the epidermis to stimulate epidermal cells. In any case, the areas and depth of injection depend on the pathology to be treated or the desired effect.
Post-treatment of capillary biostimulation
As it is a natural and simple treatment, the patient does not have to do anything after undergoing PRP. Yes, it is convenient to combine capillary PRP in Madrid with other treatments such as mesotherapy or carboxytherapy to accelerate results.
The number of necessary PRP sessions will be determined by the doctor, as well as their frequency. Some patients evolve faster than others, but all of them end up seeing results in their hair density.
Patients will develop some swelling, but this is a sign of reactivation of their skin. In some points, the needle can produce small marks, but there is no need to worry since they disappear the next day without any problem.
Hair PRP for female alopecia
The solution to female alopecia is also in the capillary PRP technique. The procedure is exactly the same for men and women, although the results in the latter are very visible, since their problem is usually a lack of capillary density. The creation of collagen and tissue regeneration are favored thanks to this treatment.
Is hair PRP painful?
Many of the patients at the Instituto Médico del Prado wonder if the capillary PRP technique hurts. Although it is true that it can be annoying, especially if it is not done correctly, both Dr. Espinosa Custodio and our nursing team are instructed to ensure that the discomfort is minimal. Before the intervention we implement a special protocol to reduce possible discomfort and we have a particularly effective pain distractor.
