NEW Autologous Mesotherapy Magellan TruPRP

The Autologous Mesotherapy with growth factors Magellan ® Tru PRP™ is a modern, revolutionary method for the management of hair loss, offering immediately visible and long-lasting results, with no pain or side effects.

Magellan TruPRP

Common autologous mesotherapy PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) with growth factors through the method of simple centrifugation (one rotation) removes red blood cells from plasma. The result of this is a mixture of PRP & PPP, “rich” and “poor” plasma, which includes a small number of platelets and low concentration.

This was the case till now, since the new Autologous Mesotherapy Magellan® TruPRP™ is here to change everything we used to know about the treatment with plasma enriched with growth factors for the treatment of scalp disorders.

Autologous Mesotherapy Magellan TruPRP

Autologous Mesotherapy Magellan® TruPRP™ is the new non-invasive skin rejuvenation and regeneration treatment, which utilises blood components that have rejuvenating, trichogenic properties, with highly significant results for the treatment of hair loss. Magellan®TruPRP™ treatment utilises the patient’s own platelets to effectively stimulate hair growth, and ultimately offer visible, long-lasting results at once, with no pain and no side effects, to effectively combat hair loss.

Magellan® TruPRP™: From you to you!

Magellan®TruPRP™ (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatment is actually based on the infusion of platelet-rich-plasma drawn from the patient, which is the reason why this treatment is characterised as autologous. The procedure is really simple. Initially a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient painlessly. The amount of blood is equal to the amount drawn for a standard blood test. Following this, the blood is centrifuged inside specially designed tubes, so that to separate its components: plasma, platelets, white and red blood, among which plasma and growth factors included in the platelets are utilised.

Double centrifugation – Sophisticated separation

The new advanced Autologous Mesotherapy method Magellan TruPRP uses the process of double centrifugation through which the more sophisticated separation of “enriched” and “poor” plasma is achieved, as well as 4-6 times greater concentration as compared to other PRPs.

The resulting enriched plasma has increased regenerative and trichogenic properties, ideal for the management and treatment of scalp disorders. The part of the blood that is separated has 4 to 6 times more platelets from the amount of platelets in the blood.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is infused subcutaneously at the areas of the scalp where the problem is identified after the application of the RF Microneedling method so that to enhance tissues’ perfusion and revascularisation.

Following this, ΡΡΡ (Poor Platelet Plasma), which is preserved in the fridge, is applied on the same as well as on the next 3 days by the patient himself at home, on his scalp, to further enhance the result of the hair follicles. The centrifugation process is completed within 12-16 minutes.

Magellan®TruPRP™ reactivates hair follicles

In the case of hair loss, Magellan®TruPRP™ treatment achieves reactivation of the damaged hair follicles, so that to start working properly again and produce strong hair.

Actually PRP “forces” the human organism to react in an intense but absolutely normal way to the weakened hair follicles’ function, providing activated stem cells to the area, which undertake the hair follicles regeneration process. Soon after, hair loss stops, while new, thick and strong hair start growing at the hair thinning areas.

Growth factors’ role

Two of the most important ingredients of PRP are cytokines (growth, differentiation and immunological response proteins) and growth factors. Growth factors (such as TGF-b, PDGF, IGF, VEGF, EGF and FGF-2) are proteins produced by specific cells of the body, which activate the repair of tissues that were not functioning properly or were damaged, thus enhancing angiogenesis and revascularisation.

This is actually achieved through the reactivation of weak adult stem cells and the proliferation and regeneration of the bulge area cells, which are responsible for hair follicles’ health and hair growth.

It is also worth noting that the new Autologous Mesotherapy Magellan®TruPRP™ increases the concentration of growth factors within plasma by 4 to 6 times, thus allowing the reactivation of a much larger number of adult stem cells. The said stem cells then signal the reactivation of the affected area, thus the disorder is restored faster and more effectively.

 

Safe Method – Impressive Results

The autologous nature of the treatment – collection, processing and re-usage of the same person’s blood – makes it an absolutely safe method with no side effects.

The results are gradually visible within 2-3 months, as hair follicles function is stimulated and their life time is extended, while both cells proliferation and tissues regeneration are enhanced. The treatment may be repeated as many times as the patient desires.

Magellan®TruPRP™ is approved by the strict US Food & Drug Administration (FDA), which demonstrates the high level of safety and maximum effectiveness of this device. Magellan®TruPRP™ device operates automatically and complies with the highest safety standards, as human factor does not interfere during separation. At the end of the treatment, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is delivered ready for use.

Treatment Monitoring

To monitor treatment results, it is advisable to perform trichoscopy, which allows complete recording of hair follicles’ status in terms of number, quality, and hair thickness, and then the digital processing of the findings. The examination should be always performed before treatment initiation, as well as during the course of treatment, because it is the only objective comparative tool for the assessment of the results.

The new advanced Autologous Mesotherapy treatment Magellan®TruPRP™ is indicated for:

  • Treatment of alopecia areata, cicatricial alopecia, and androgenetic alopecia in both men and women,
  • Prevention of hair loss,
  • In special cases of hair loss due to stress or hormonal changes it is the ideal therapeutic method in combination with hair loss treatment.
  • As supportive therapy in hair transplantations.

The only contraindications are: unregulated diabetes mellitus, use of anticoagulants, unregulated hypertension, heart failure and arrhythmias.
