Capillary PRP in Mexico City
Discover the Benefits of Platelet-Rich Plasma
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), also known as PRP, is one of the standout options in Dr. Espinosa Custodio’s practice, thanks to the notable results it has achieved. This treatment is offered as a viable alternative following a detailed diagnosis. Its impact extends beyond hair medicine, covering various medical areas ranging from traumatology to gynecology and even addressing aesthetic aspects.
In essence, the procedure involves the application of your own enriched plasma to the specific area of the scalp that requires attention. This plasma contains growth factors and fibroblasts that stimulate collagen production and promote tissue regeneration by improving blood circulation. This technique is especially recommended for treating low hair density, characterized by very fine hair, and can also be employed as an effective complement to consolidate the results of hair surgery.
An Innovative Solution
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) represents an effective and reliable alternative for androgenetic alopecia, generating high satisfaction among our patients. This significant breakthrough marks a milestone in hair medicine in Mexico.
The procedure involves extracting the patient’s blood, from which PRP is obtained through centrifugation, separating the plasma fraction from other blood components. The plasma is activated with growth factors and administered through injections in the areas to be treated. This process is non-invasive, quick, entirely natural, and safe, as it involves autotransfusion. There is no risk of rejection since the patient’s own blood is used.
While each patient experiences a unique progression, PRP results are typically visible from the third session. After the sixth session, the difference is already notable. In cases of more advanced alopecia, we consider the possibility of combining PRP with other treatments, such as mesotherapy, to expedite results.
Capillary PRP Process in Mexico City
1. Sample Acquisition: Blood is drawn to obtain the necessary sample.
2. Centrifugation Process: Once the sample is obtained, it undergoes a centrifugation process at a speed of 2800–3100 rpm for 9-10 minutes. After centrifugation, the sample is ready for activation.
3. PRP Administration: PRP Administration
Post-Treatment of Capillary Biostimulation
Given that it is a natural and straightforward treatment, there is no need for the patient to engage in any specific activities after undergoing PRP. However, it can be beneficial to combine capillary PRP in Mexico City with other procedures such as mesotherapy or carboxytherapy to expedite results.
The number of required PRP sessions will be determined by the doctor, along with their frequency. Evolution may vary among patients, but ultimately, all will experience improvements in hair density.
It is normal for patients to experience some inflammation, which is an indicator of skin reactivation. In some areas, the needle may cause small marks, but there is no cause for concern, as they usually disappear the next day without any issues.
Capillary PRP for Treating Female Alopecia
The capillary PRP technique also offers an effective solution for female alopecia. The procedure is identical for both men and women, although in the latter, the results are particularly noticeable as they often experience issues with hair density. This treatment promotes the creation of collagen and tissue regeneration.
Is Capillary PRP Painful?
Many patients at Instituto Médico del Prado wonder if the capillary PRP technique is painful. Although it can be uncomfortable, especially if not performed properly, Dr. Espinosa Custodio and our nursing team are trained to minimize any discomfort. Before the intervention, we implement a special protocol to reduce potential discomfort, and we have effective methods to distract from pain during the procedure.
