At ALVMG Las Vegas Aesthetics, we have been performing PRP therapy as a proactive therapeutic option for male and female patients experiencing hair loss. PRP is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions.
Recent scientific research and technology provides the medical community with new understandings of wound and tissue healing. As a result of these scientific studies, we recognize PRP is an all-natural autologous medical procedure performed in physicians offices for scalp, skin, and hair stimulation.
What Is Autologous Platelet-Rich Plasma
Platelet-rich plasma or PRP in short consists of highly concentrated platelets surrounded by their own plasma. A little bit of blood is extracted, and red cells are detached from the platelet-rich plasma. Due to the fact the autologous PRP is refined from the patient’s own blood, the risk of an allergic reaction or getting rejected is avoided.
Growth Factors Originating from Blood
The essence of your blood is made up of life-giving primary protein growth factors. Platelet-Rich Plasma makes use of cutting-edge, specifically designed, patented technological advances. With the help of this trouble-free, quick, and effective method, the PRP specialist is able to obtain highly concentrated, nutrient-rich, natural cells and produce autologous platelet-rich plasma.
- The specialist pulls a quantity of blood, very much the same amount needed for a general lab test
- Then puts the blood into a fast spinning centrifuge, separating the platelets from other blood compounds
- The PRP is initiated to give off at least 8–10 vital growth factors plus signaling proteins
This innovative and secure method utilizes features of blood-based organic chemistry. As a result, all constituents obtained are entirely from the patient, i.e. of autologous origin. This is essentially removing the risk of intolerance. However, prior to any treatment, tell your doctor all the medicines (as well as herbs) that you are taking.
Known Effects of Growth Factor Production
The epidermal growth factor (EGF) takes on a crucial role in the processes that regulate cell growth by means of spreading and differentiating the cell at the time of the so-called remodeling phase. It also stimulates the generation of fibroblast and keratinocyte.
The transforming growth factor (TGF) encourages angiogenesis, the physiologic process concerning the increase of new blood vessels.
The fibroblast growth factor (FGF) boosts angiogenesis, epithelialization, and granulation for the complex process of repairing damaged tissues after an injury.
The platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) brings in fibroblasts and macrophages to the injured area. It also induces proteoglycan synthesis and collagen growth.
Then there is the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), a necessary signaling protein taking part in angiogenesis as well as vasculogenesis. It helps growing blood vessels from existing vasculature.
Interleukins, Macrophages, Keratinocytes, Endothelial Cells, Lymphocytes, Fibroblasts, Osteoblasts, Basophils, Mast Cells
They all spark fibroblast differentiation and trigger the synthesis of proteoglycan and collagen which is important for a balanced cell production and fixing wounds.
The collagen stimulating growth factor (KSF) enhances macrophage and granulocyte growth, thus helping to generate and blood cells and healthy tissue.
Finally, the keratinocyte growth factor (KGF) helps to migrate, grow, and differentiate keratinocyte. By doing so it improves the conditions for repairing and generating new skin.
