Platelet rich plasma for alopecia is one of the discoveries that has revolutionized aesthetic medicine as it has become known today.
Platelets are cells present in the blood, in a normal ratio of 150,000 to 300,000 per cubic centimeter of blood.
They contain different types of granules in their cytoplasm.
Alpha granules have an important variety of peptides and proteins with different functions, among which growth factors and angiogenesis factors must be highlighted.
The former stimulate cell multiplication and the latter stimulate blood supply by forming new vessels.
The platelet rich plasma technique for alopecia consists of tripling the amount of platelets per cubic centimeter of plasma by centrifugation.
This platelet-enriched plasma is activated immediately prior to application by microinjections into the scalp.
Activation is important for platelets to release alpha granules into the cell interstitium.
