Hair Loss Treatment

Hair loss and thinning of the scalp is an aesthetic problem that affects 1 in 2 men and 1 in 20 women.

If we want to see a hair in enlargement we will find that the hair we see outside our skin is ultimately a dead part. But if we pay attention to the part under the skin, we will find that, more or less, there is a small laboratory that produces hair, dyes it, lubricates it, polishes it and takes it out ready.

95% of all cases of baldness are androgenetic, which is the most difficult to treat, because it is a genetic trait, such as the color of the eyes and skin. It has a characteristic course and type. It proceeds slowly and is formed after years.

However, when we talk about heredity, what is ultimately inherited is the predisposition of the individual and the sensitivity of the hair follicles to androgens. It is not testosterone that is responsible for hair loss, but its derivative, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), mediated by an enzyme, 5-α reductase. All anti-hair loss therapies focus on blocking the mechanism by which testosterone is converted to DHT.

What are the reasons that can lead to hair loss

  • Hormonal problems and hereditary predisposition
  • Medical treatments / medicines
  • Emotional stress
  • Unhealthy diet
  • Skin diseases in scalp area
  • Aggressive hair care (perms, dyes, extensions, etc.)


  • Minoxidil (minoxidil 2%)

The topical solution used in direct contact with the scalp, prolongs the telogen phase of the hair, so it has a temporary and completely reversible action.

  • Finasteride (recommended for men only)

It works by blocking the action of the enzyme 5-α reductase to convert testosterone to 5α-dihydrotestosterone. It helps maintain existing hair and in some cases causes an increase in the number of hairs after long-term use. In addition to oral administration, there is also topical therapy in the form of an injection (mesotherapy).


In cases of hair loss and alopecia, we use mesotherapy to insert into the scalp, so in the hair follicles the appropriate medicinal and multivitamin preparations, to strengthen and regrow the hair. It is preceded by a history, clinical examination to diagnose the type of alopecia (androgenetic, gyroid, scarring) and to determine the “medicinal cocktail” to be used. The range of substances used includes multivitamins, minerals, trace elements, antioxidants in combination with medicines, such as monoxidil, finasteride, steroids, etc. The treatments are done once a month for 6-8 months, depending on the type of alopecia. From the very first treatments we observe a reduction of hair loss, then stabilization and strengthening.

PRP- New Hair follicle Anti-Aging Treatment

In recent years, a new treatment for hair loss is proposed and applied, the so-called PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). It is based on the use of platelet-rich plasma from the patient’s own blood, so it is an autologous mesotherapy.

Platelets are a rich source of growth factors, specialized proteins that activate:

  • Cell proliferation and renewal
  • The activation of the precursor stem cells of the scalp
  • Cellular metabolism
  • The creation of new vessels resulting in increased perfusion and renewal of hair follicles.

PRP- How it is done

After taking a small amount of blood and after centrifugation we achieve:

  • Plasma isolation with platelets
  • Addition to the platelet-rich plasma calcium ion solution, with the aim of activating and secreting growth factors

How PRP face hair loss - What are the benefits and indications

PRP offers significant help to hair follicles through the following mechanisms:

  • Slows down the aging process of hair follicles
  • Improves the quality of the tissues around the hair follicles
  • Helps prevent disorders of hair follicle metabolism
  • Reduces aggravating factors that accelerate the rate of hair loss
  • Inhibits the effect of aggravating factors
  • It acts as an anti-inflammatory in cases of pathological conditions of the scalp.

In conclusion, PRP accelerates the reduction and slowing down of hair loss and enhances the metabolism of hair follicles. The results of PRP treatment become apparent after 2-3 months and usually the cycle of improvement is completed after 6-7 months.

The most important thing is the absolute safety of the treatment!

RPR-Can everyone undergo PRP treatment?

For most, it has an indication, but this will be suggested to each individual separately after a diagnostic and detailed examination in order to determine if you finally have an indication and to explain to you the possibilities of treatment, as well as what the expected result will be.

Of course, we must not forget that the type and final hair growth of every human being is genetically predetermined and this is impossible to reverse. Our effort is to eliminate any aggravating factors that accelerate hair loss, to reduce the rapid rate of hair loss and to improve the quality of the scalp.

PRP treatment has no indication for men who already have an advanced degree of baldness.
