Capillary Regeneration Treatment or CRT

Thanks to Capillary Regeneration Treatment it is possible to keep the hair in the best conditions. Promotes hair regeneration and strengthens hair thanks to the application of rich growth factors to the scalp.

The CRT consists of a small extraction of blood from the patient that is subsequently subjected to a centrifugation process to separate the components rich in growth from the rest of the blood components. Once extracted, these are injected directly into the scalp using microinjections.

Capillary graft

The treatments that we have discussed are defined as maintenance treatments. They are able to stop hair loss, but in no case do they make hair grow back in those areas where it stopped doing it naturally. The only way to regain hair in the areas affected by alopecia is with hair grafting.

The capillary graft consists of a minimally invasive outpatient intervention in which the follicular units are extracted from the area that is not affected by alopecia to implant them in the recipient area. The definitive results are given one year after the intervention, eighteen months in cases of the crown, although it is true that after six months we can begin to see the change.
