What is PRP? What is ACT?
(A miracle for the treatment of hair loss and skin rejuvenation)
PRP is abbreviation of Platelet Rich Plasma means a platelet-rich plasma that is taken from your own blood. ACT is abbreviation of Autologous Cell Therapy.
The plaques are responsible for blood clots in cutting and injured areas. Platelets also have a growth factor on their surface when injected into the skin, stimulate collagen production and cause skin rejuvenation. PRP (Platelet-rich plasma) has been used in many medical procedures for many years, such as wound healing and joint surgery. It has been used to rejuvenate the face and treat baldness and hair loss since 2006 in the United States, Europe, Japan and Australia.

Skin rejuvenation with PRP can only be performed once, but more microinjections can be repeated at intervals of 4-6 weeks, if desired. This treatment can be done with RF. In the case of PRP, the scalp will respond 30-80% of cases and stimulate hair growth.
What happens during PRP treatment?
Your doctor should evaluate the age of your skin, make a simple analysis, and provide a reasonable treatment with a reasonable result. A photo is taken from you before and one photo 3 month after treatment. Your skin will be cleaned and ready. An anesthetic cream is used (a nerve block may also be used). The blood from your arm is collected in a special test tube, which is then centrifuged. The platelet rich plate is then prepared and activated. Afterwards it is injected into the scalp (skin of the scalp)or can be inoculated into skin by micro-needling. It is injected or done by micro-needling into the lines and wrinkles of the face for regeneration of the skin and to stimulate hair growth.
In some centers, a collagen mask is used, which helps protect the skin and help improve the penetration of PRP into the skin.
