Training - PRP and Unicorn

Intraoperative PRP therapy is beneficial to achieve faster density in FUE transplant recipients, reduces catagen loss of transplanted hairs, accelerates skin regeneration and activates dormant follicles.

PRP is rich in many growth factors and proteins, very rich in PDGF, epidermal growth factor, transforming growth factor, fibroblast growth factor (FGF), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and various pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines, such as interleukin. 4, tumor necrosis factor alpha and interferon alpha.

A Study clearly demonstrated the effect of PRP treatment during and after hair transplantation and its positive effect on the quantity and quality of hair growth. Intraoperative PRP injection therapy is beneficial in obtaining faster hair density and reducing hair loss. Inducing factors in the skin of FUE transplant recipients after hair transplantation, early skin healing, faster appearance of new hair and activation of existing dormant follicles.

How does PRP work?

As with a normal blood test, blood must first be drawn. Then the blood is centrifuged in a centrifuge and the PRP is separated from the rest of the blood; after separation, the highly concentrated platelet-rich plasma is injected into the scalp. The entire procedure requires only mild local anesthesia. PRP treatment can be an option, especially for patients who need additional stimulation of hair growth or who are unable or unwilling to undergo surgical repair. It is also commonly used in hair surgery to stimulate hair growth.

Course PRP

In the course you will understand the exact mechanism of the therapy, you will be explained when PRP therapy works, how it works and the information that is important for the patient.

Example

PRP treatments in the face differ significantly from procedures in the therapeutic area: for example, after PRP healthy face reacts differently than after a hair transplant damaged tissue

In this respect, the process is also different and must be planned differently. You will also receive a course script where you can follow the scenes shown step by step.

hands on seminar PRP

Not only will you see the entire process, but you will also treat the patient under supervision

You will go through the whole process from blood collection to application. Not only do you get demonstration, but participants are responsible for the entire process under supervision. You will be able to apply your own therapy, enjoy this therapy and make your own judgment about the effectiveness of this PRP method.

New in Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

Melatonin hormone has many functions, not only for the sleep / wake cycle. The addition of melatonin can prevent hair loss. For hair loss and existing alopecia, it can stimulate and strengthen the hair roots, so that a new appearance is obtained during treatment.

The mechanism of action is explained in this course.

Manufacturer-independent

It is worked independently of the manufacturer, ie we use materials and equipment from different manufacturers during the training process

They know the difference and what is really important. All manufacturers of devices or materials work in the medical field and not from "only" aesthetics.

Unicorn training

Unicorn: From production to application

In terms of effect and blood preparation, the Unicorn lifting method differs significantly from the PRP method. The secret lies in the preparation of the blood sample. The final centrifugation provides highly concentrated plasma rich in growth factors. Bad cytoplasm is specifically injected into the scalp.

Unicorn Lift is said to give the facial skin more elasticity and youthful radiance (hence the name Unicorn Lift). Can it also be applied to the scalp?

Physiotherapy with Microneedling on the scalp also has a strong effect on blood circulation and significantly increases nourishment. By introducing the body's own protein serum, it actively stimulates hair growth, strengthens the hair roots and at the same time slows down hair loss

Over time, already thin areas grow back, light hair becomes noticeably thicker. The hair roots are normally hidden under the scalp and the Unicorn Lift gives them the necessary impulse to sprout again

In addition, inflammation and irritation can prevent and stabilize the health of the scalp. By the way, even people without hair loss can benefit from unicorn lifting, because injections are an intensive treatment that provides healthier and stronger hair.

hands on seminar - Unicorn

The seminar covers the following main topics:

  • correct blood collection
  • Serum preparation
  • Application/injection in hair treatment

During the course, each participant creates his or her own serum and can try out this method as needed.

All materials and accessories are available.

The theoretical basics will be discussed such as mode of operation, legislation, material science, equipment selection, price and advertising. Aesthetic indications will also be addressed upon request.

Unicorn method requires a centrifuge and incubator, and we provide low cost sources.

Lecturer, protocols and effectiveness

Katrin Böttger is a lecturer for mesotherapy and PRP therapy with international assignments. Training in London, Berlin, Madrid, Italy, Moldova and Moscow.

IMPORTANT!

Autologous blood is subject to the transfusion law, AMG, among others.

Participation for non-medical practitioners is possible and reasonable.

The treatment is limited to self application (medical aesthetics, orthopaedics, hair loss etc.) or according to the legally valid rules in the different countries.

Practical application

What are the treatment options for autologous blood therapy?

The best known therapy for the treatment of hair roots is PRP therapy, which separates the blood components in the blood and records the production process. Another therapy is the unicorn therapy. The processing of the collected blood takes a long time and is filtered at the end of the process. The serum is free of cells.

What is the difference between Unicorn and PRP therapy?

Both therapies have very good effects on wound regeneration and healing: PRP therapy has a strong regenerative effect due to its components, while unicorn therapy focuses on wound healing.

Which autologous blood therapy do I receive?

After the hair transplant, the unicorn treatment is very beneficial. However, to take full advantage of PRP, the two treatment methods can be used interchangeably.

What's Unicorn?

What's Unicorn?

Unicorn is a serum that has a longer processing time and contains only a few cells. It contains many anti-inflammatory cytokines. Anti-inflammatory mediators can accelerate the wound healing process, but also have a regenerative effect. Ideal treatment after hair transplantation.

In which areas do we use Unicorn?

Unicorn can naturally help with hair loss. In particular, the serum contains anti-inflammatory cytokines, growth factors and other important active ingredients.

Thinning and hair loss are usually attributed to the aging process, which is also related to "silent inflammation", that is, an inflammatory mechanism that is not perceived.

After hair transplantation, the Unicorn has a positive effect.

After the hair transplant, the healing process is significantly faster than without the use of the Unicorn treatment.

Can autohaemotherapy / Unicorn stop hair loss?

The effectiveness and efficiency of treatment depends on the type of hair loss. A complete medical history is required. This is the basis for the type of autologous blood treatment (unicorn or PRP) and the number of treatments. When used correctly, the results speak for themselves.

How long does a Unicorn treatment take?

The Unicorn treatment itself is relatively quick. The preparation of the blood sample takes several hours, but the patient is not there during the preparation of the serum, he comes to take the blood sample and is treated a few hours later.

Is the Unicorn treatment painful?

First of all, we would like to mention that personal pain varies from person to person. Some patients do not need anesthesia, while others do.

We try to make the Unicorn treatment as comfortable as possible for each patient.

How does Unicorn work with hair transplants?

The use of Unicorn serum has proven to be effective in treating hair.

Although autologous blood can provide good results in the early stages of hair loss, hair transplantation is usually the last option to combat progressive hair loss.

The anti-inflammatory effect of autologous serum usually manifests itself when wounds heal faster....

For whom is PRP with hair treatment suitable?

Basically, the unicorn auto-blood therapy is suitable for anyone who wants to strengthen the hair and prevent hair loss.

People with blood diseases, bleeding disorders, cancer or certain autoimmune diseases are excluded from the treatment.

A complete anamnesis (examination / anamnesis) was carried out to ensure that the autohaemotherapy can be used successfully.

How many Unicorn sessions are needed?

We recommend the use of PRP for 4 treatments at intervals of 2 to 3 weeks. Plasma / serum from two PRP tubes is used for this. After completion of the treatment, we recommend repeating the procedure every six months for the maintenance phase

Unicorn is a treatment recommended as a maintenance therapy after a hair transplant.

How does a Unicorn hair treatment work?

Unicorn hair treatment is the treatment with a certain amount of blood previously taken from the patient.

Before injecting the serum, it is prepared for several hours, then centrifuged and then filtered.

The serum produced contains many cytokines and growth factors.

The serum is filled into the syringe and applied subcutaneously.

For this purpose, we use mesotherapy needles with a length of no more than 4 mm.

The serum is then injected into the scalp.

This procedure takes a few minutes. Depending on the sensitivity to pain, a local anesthetic should be used to numb the affected area.

When can we expect the first results of the PRP treatment?

Hair roots are located in the deep layer of the dermis and pass into the subcutaneous layer. This is about 3 mm.

Unicorn treatment helps the hair implants to take root quickly and stimulate the healing process. Other hair roots can also benefit from Unicorn Serum.

The hair becomes full of nutrients. The entire process from hair formation to visible results takes 8 to 12 weeks.

What is PRP?

General

PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. Our blood contains a large number of living cells. One type of cell is platelets or thrombocytes

PRP is the concentrated plasma of a single patient i.e. blood without red blood cells. PRP contains a large amount of platelets, growth factors and blood proteins.

PRP is used for cell regeneration and rejuvenation. Cells activated in PRP are processed, injected or massaged into the skin, connective tissue, scars, muscles, joints and hair roots for regeneration and activation, called autologous cell regeneration.

What other names are there?

Often the term plasma therapy is used, but also called vampire or Dracula lifting.

These names are created by the media and give this therapy a special character. There are many other names, abbreviations are very common, such as CGF (Concentrated Growth Factors)

In which areas is PRP used?

Autologous blood / PRP therapy is very often used in aesthetics. PRP can tighten mature skin, brighten the complexion and improve skin texture

PRP is also used in orthopedics, dermatology and gynecology. PRP has become indispensable in sports medicine. Almost all professional clubs, whether football or handball, rely on PRP therapy

PRP originally came from dentistry. It is shown here to be very useful in dental implantology and other diseases of jaw structure and tooth support devices.

PRP therapy in its gentle and effective form has successfully conquered many professions. PRP treatment can actively support the body's own regeneration and healing abilities.

PRP in trichology?

What effect does PRP have in trichology?

- PRP promotes the growth of hair follicle cells

- It has a positive effect on the hair cycle (growth phase, transition phase and rest phase)

- PRP is a natural body therapy without additives

- Plasma contains all nutrients, electrolytes and hormones

- PRP therapies are well researched and studies have shown that hair becomes thicker and grows faster.

Can PRP treatment stop hair loss?

PRP can certainly help with hair loss naturally. Plasma contains platelets, which contain growth factors and are responsible for cell renewal. PRP stimulates the hair roots and can thus permanently prevent hair loss.

Does PRP therapy also help with thin hair?

Long-term diseases, stressors and other factors often affect the appearance of hair. The PRP method is very helpful for poor, sparse and dull hair. PRP contains all the important active ingredients needed for healthy hair root development.

How long does a PRP treatment take?

First the blood is taken, then the blood is prepared. The skin is disinfected and the scalp is anesthetized.

Then follows the treatment itself, PRP is injected.

The total treatment time is 45-60 minutes.

Is PRP therapy painful?

First, we would like to mention that personal perception of pain varies greatly from person to person. Some patients do not need anesthesia, others need anesthesia. Therefore, we try to make the treatment of each patient as comfortable as possible.

Effectiveness of PRP in hair transplantation

The use of PRP in hair treatment covers all areas. Although autologous blood can give good results in the early stages of hair loss, hair transplantation is usually the last option to counteract progressive hair loss

PRP stimulates the growth of blood vessels and nourishes the hair follicles of the transplanted hair. It also stimulates wound healing and nourishes the tissue. All these factors can help the transplanted hair to survive the first critical condition smoothly.

For whom is hair treatment with PRP suitable?

Basically, PRP therapy is suitable for all people who want to strengthen their hair and prevent hair loss.

People with blood disorders, bleeding disorders, cancer or certain autoimmune diseases are excluded from the treatment. A complete anamnesis (examination / medical history) to ensure that the treatment can be applied successfully.

Can autologous blood therapy / PRP therapy be used in combination with another therapy?

When treating hair, you can add vitamins like biotin to PRP therapy. Some doctors ozonate PRP before use.

What types of hair loss can be treated with PRP therapy?

In principle, all types of hair loss can be treated with PRP therapy (age-related hair loss, androgenetic alopecia, round alopecia, etc.), but the cause of the hair loss is very important whether other treatment options (alternative therapy, detoxification, etc.) would be beneficial.

Frequency: How many PRP treatments are required?

We recommend a treatment cycle of 4 treatments at intervals of two to three weeks. Plasma from two PRP tubes is used for this.

After completion of the treatment, we recommend repeating it every six months during the maintenance phase. PRP is a recommended treatment, it serves as a supportive treatment after a hair transplant.

What preparations do you need to make before PRP therapy?

It is best to rest and drink plenty of water (water, tea). This will reduce the viscosity of blood. Wash your hair with silicone-free shampoo. We recommend using a shampoo of "very good" quality tested by Öko-Test magazine

Do not use conditioner, hairspray, dye spray or other preparations before the treatment

However, it is important to note that medications should be avoided for at least three days before treatment. Be especially careful if you are taking thinners and anti-inflammatory medications. As these affect the viability of platelets, it is important that you consult your doctor beforehand if you require medication.

How does a PRP hair treatment work?

PRP hair treatment is the treatment with a certain amount of blood previously taken from the patient

Before the injection, blood is processed and only the blood plasma is injected. It contains a lot of platelets, also called blood platelets

This is an effective way to stop hair loss. It is also suitable for thin and damaged hair. Since plasma promotes wound healing, it can also be used to treat various scalp conditions.

How do I introduce the whole PRP hair treatment process?

Before starting the PRP hair treatment, a small amount of blood is taken, usually two PRP tubes of 10 ml each

The blood sample is placed in a centrifuge and centrifuged for almost 15 minutes, after which only 3-4 ml of plasma remains

The collected blood samples are separated into different layers by centrifugation. Visually, we see only two layers: White and Red

On the one hand plasma, on the other hand red blood cells

For PRP treatment we need only the plasma contained in it and the platelets and stem cells.

The plasma is filled into the syringe and injected subcutaneously. Mesotherapy needles of no more than 4 mm are used

The plasma is then injected into the scalp. This process takes a few minutes. Depending on your sensitivity to pain, the area to be treated is numbed with a local anaesthetic before the procedure.

When can we expect the first results of the PRP treatment?

Hair roots are located in the deep layer of the dermis and pass into the subcutaneous layer. This is about 3 mm. PRP stimulates the hair roots. The whole process from hair formation to visible results takes 8 to 12 weeks.

General information about Platelet Rich Plasma PRP

How do I look after a PRP treatment?

This is a common question from a patient. After proper application, there is little external evidence, and no one else will notice that you are just recovering from hair treatment. We will take good care of it.

When can I wash my hair again after the PRP treatment?

On the day of treatment, it is recommended to take it easy on the scalp and not to use any care products. This can only be done the following day.

Are there any side effects after PRP treatment?

Slight redness, pain and swelling or sometimes slight bruising, these disappear by themselves after a few days.

Cold compresses can also help with swelling. However, PRP therapy is still an invasive procedure. Despite being safe to use, it can cause other side effects. Even if the risk is low, infections, nerve damage, bleeding and tissue damage can occur.

What should you pay attention to after a PRP treatment?

Saunas, swimming pools, do not be exposed to sunlight for a week and do moderate sports only after a few days.

Can PRP treatment be performed before hair transplantation?

Of course, hair follicles can benefit from pre-treatment, and only healthy hair follicles can achieve ideal success through hair transplantation.

What can I do in the long run to improve or maintain my results?

A healthy lifestyle, including diet and exercise, is associated with healthy hair growth. Tobacco and alcohol should be limited

Special dietary supplements for hair are also available. Oral intake of active ingredients such as keratin can provide intense nourishment to the hair root. Pure keratin is rich in amino acids.

In the patented extraction process, this keratin is biologically absorbed by our body to provide a deeper and longer lasting effect. The hair becomes thicker and more elastic. Keratin also has strengthening effects on the nails.

There are also certain hair preparations that have a proven formula with good hair growth effect and daily scalp massage.

Why are combination therapies recommended in PRP therapy?

There can be many reasons for hair loss. If the cause is not fully understood, certain blood tests may show a deficiency of nutrients that can be replaced by certain supplements

Infusion therapy is also used in PRP therapy. High doses of vitamin C can help with hair loss

First, blood is drawn for PRP treatment. If you already have access, you only need to use an infusion

There are a variety of micronutrients, oxygen therapy, and many other agents to choose from tailored to each patient.

Are there any studies on the effectiveness of PRP therapy?

PRP therapy is one of the natural remedies and has been very successful in many areas. This method has been the subject of many studies and is still the subject of further research due to its enormous potential.

Is PRP treatment safe?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is made from the patient's own blood, so there are virtually no side effects.

Infection, damage to nerves or blood vessels can occur. Scarring and calcification may also occur at the injection site.

If your doctor uses a local anesthetic such as lidocaine or bupivacaine to inject PRP, side effects from the drug are rare.

If you are allergic to medical devices or medications, especially local anesthetics, please inform your doctor.

Taking all preventive measures and hygiene into account, PRP is a very safe treatment.

Is the PRP treatment standardized?

PRP treatment is not standardized. Each provider is free to choose their training, equipment, materials and protocols. As a result, the effects of the result vary greatly, as does the price of the treatment

A therapist who has received high quality and comprehensive training must have certain price.

Investment in equipment should be economical, and the cost of processing materials is very high, so low price quotes are not recommended.

PRP treatment cosmetic or medicine?

As a provider of international PRP treatment courses, we specialize in the use of customized agreements in the medical field. Although PRP has entered the cosmetic field, we still focus on medical products.

Are there different ways of working with PRP therapy?

Yes, unfortunately there are big differences between the different practices. The key is the right application protocol. Whether PRP is used after a hair transplant or later to achieve stable results for example for prevention purposes. The protocol must be adapted for each indication.

What other factors can influence PRP therapy?

Only medical devices may be used for PRP treatment. This applies to devices and materials.

Laboratory centrifuges are not approved for PRP treatment, an approved PRP centrifuge is required for this.

The centrifuge tube must also meet certain requirements. Laboratory tubes and cosmetics - there is nothing to look for in this therapy.

How important is centrifugation in PRP therapy?

This is the basis for a successful PRP therapy. In many cases, blood is separated into several components in a conventional laboratory centrifuge.

The law prohibits laboratory centrifuges. The PRP centrifuge works on the principle of fractionation and has a sterilization cycle to avoid possible contamination.

What is fractionated centrifugation?

The blood is centrifuged at a constantly changing speed for several minutes. Depending on the density, different blood cells are then deposited so that platelets can accumulate at the bottom of the plasma. When the blood is overloaded, certain cells migrate to other layers.

The result can be a lack of cells instead of cell-rich plasma, which has a negative effect on treatment. If the plasma contains many platelets, it can be very effective.

Are there other factors that affect the results of PRP?

Yes, that's right. Centrifuge tubes are required for blood preparation, which are special PRP tubes.

The tube material is very important. The use of plastic tubes reduces the quality of the plasma. In our treatment we use only glass tubes, which have better platelet properties than plastic tubes.
