But what does that mean and how does it work?
 
Blood is a vivid fluid which is constantly following through the body’s blood vessels. A person weighing around 70 kg has about 5-6 liters of blood. The body’s blood is made up of two parts, 50-60 % is plasma and the remaining 40-50 % is a collection of blood cells. Plasma is mostly water but blood cells consist of 3 basic types, erythrocytes (red blood cells), leukocytes (white blood cells) and thrombocytes (coagulation cells).
 
Thrombocytes are the smallest of the three types of blood cells, and their main function is to cause coagulation when a vessel is ruptured or when the skin is cut. This process begins when the blood cells come into contact with an external environment. When we have a cut, the thrombocytes are activated when they contact the outer environment, providing a protective layer (a scab) that helps stop bleeding. This layer plays an important role in healing of a wound by allowing new tissue to form at the site of the wound. When the scab on the wound is removed, new skin is revealed to have formed over the cut effectively closing it off.
 
The healing power of thrombocytes are now being used in many fields of medicine, especially to assist in rapid and effective healing. Due to a new FDA certified treatment method, a host of new technologies harnessing the healing power of thrombocytes began being used in the USA in recent years, which has subsequently been adopted by medical practitioners in Turkey and Europe. About 100-150 cc of your blood, which is about the size of a small tea glass, is taken and then subjected to a special process. A part of the thrombocyte cells, named PRP (PLATELET RICH PLASMA), is extracted from the blood and then subsequently injected into areas intending to be healed. This process allows the growth factors of thrombocytes (healing, repairer) to take effect.
 
Usually excretion of blood, due to a tear or rupture in a vessel or the skin, activates the PRP cells and causes stem cell migration to occur. Recently arrived stem cells increase collagen synthesis, causing tissue to heal. However, when used in combination with Ozone treatment, new methods of stimulating facial rejuvenation and preventing hair loss, have become available. Through Ozone treatment first, your tissue and blood oxygen levels are increased. Then with PRP therapy, new tissue rejuvenation is stimulated in targeted areas.
 
Various sites of stimulation require various amounts of treatment and frequency. In Hair loss, facial and neck rejuvenation treatments, regional injections of Ozone treatments are applied 2-3 times before PRP therapy can begin. Once the PRP therapy is started it is subsequently repeated 2-3 times at a rate of about once a month. Then the therapy application only needs to be repeated once a year. This process will help you to do away with paying serious amounts of money for cosmetic products that are used to diminish facial wrinkles and stop hair loss. You will also obtain a much more effective result overtime than many over-the-counter products claim to provide.
In female hair loss and during the early stages of male hair losses, results obtained through this Ozone and PRP combination treatment have been hugely successful. However, it is not an effective method to treat areas where hair has already been totally lost. In the case of total hair loss other therapies and treatments should be sought.
