The problem of hair loss, which we have been hearing more frequently in recent periods, negatively affects both women and men in the social sense.
According to the researches, hair-specific applications are in the third place among the most preferred non-surgical aesthetic applications in the world. So, what preventive procedures can we use for issues such as excessive shedding and damage to our hair caused by external factors? In this month’s column, I will tell you what to do for worn and shed hair.
Strengthen your hair with your own cells!
Stem cell application is one of the most effective treatment methods that I prefer most for revitalizing hair and preventing loss. Stem cell application that we apply for many areas such as face, neck and décolleté area, rejuvenation of hand, elbow and knee cap, treatment of scars and burn scars, breast augmentation, hip lift, plumping processes and clarification of cheekbones and chin borders; It also gives very successful results in eliminating hair loss. With the application, the cells that have been lost under the skin are given back to the lowest layer of the skin and the pleasantness coming from you is again tricked into you with your own cells. Most importantly, this treatment, which we apply in a single session, does not carry the risk of allergy, rejection and foreign element reaction in the problem area.
In stem cell application, we apply a process that takes approximately 1-1.5 hours in a single session. First of all, a measure of fat is taken from the individual with the Liposuction method, this takes about 10 minutes. Afterwards, the extracted fats are made stronger from stem cells by undergoing a special process. This process takes about 30-40 minutes. In the last 10 minutes of the operation, the cells taken are injected into the problem area. Afterwards, the process of proliferation and activation of cells under the skin begins. The effects of the application begin to be seen within 1 month following the operation. After 9-12 months, its effect reaches its highest level. Depending on age, genetics and life style, this period may extend up to 18 to 24 months in some patients. Since Stem Cell Therapy is a natural application, there is no upper or lower age limit. It can be applied to people of all ages, men and women.
PRP methods against hair loss
Another method we do not apply for healthy hair is PRP. PRP is the process of separating a small amount of blood taken from the individual with a special system and returning the growth factors in this fluid to the distressed area by injection.
Due to the use of the person’s own blood, there is no risk of allergic reaction such as stem cell application. With this process, more blood, oxygen and vitamins are allowed to be transported to the hair root. It stimulates hair root cells with the growth factors it secretes and accelerates hair production. Thus, it makes the hair healthier.
It has a function that stops shedding, especially when applied to the area with hair loss. Application; By stimulating the hair follicles that have lost their ability to produce hair together with weak, broken and damaged hair, it both stops hair loss and makes the hair appear brighter and more alive. In PRP application, multiple sessions can be applied depending on the size of the problem. Although the sessions vary according to the size of the area to be treated, they take a maximum of 30 – 40 minutes. After the application, the person can continue his social life. Sometimes, small and discontinuous bruises may occur depending on the injections.
I do not recommend the application to those who use blood thinners, those who have a history of cancer, and those who are experiencing pregnancy and breastfeeding.
“The implementation and results of the processes specified in the text may vary according to each person’s anatomy, physiognomy and quality of life. Before the mentioned application, I recommend that you consult with a specialist physician.”
