Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy has been FDA approved and utilized for over 30 years for advanced wound healing. Now, we are seeing exciting results with Platelet Rich Plasma treatment for hair growth. A patient’s blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets to a specific concentration effective for hair growth. The platelets are then activated and injected back into the scalp at the level of the hair follicles. This process stimulates the body’s own growth factors and stem cells to slow hair loss, reverse miniaturized hair to produce a strong, visible hair again, and if used at the time of a hair transplant, it encourages faster graft growth. This has been very effective for both men and women.
PRP Treatments for Hair Loss
Instructions before PRP Treatment
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is derived from the patient’s own blood serum. The patient’s blood is placed in a centrifuge where each part of the blood is separated. The platelet rich plasma is isolated and used to inject into the patient’s scalp. This PRP therapy is rich in growth factors, multiple other wound healing and new hair follicle stimulating cells. PRP has long been used for enhanced wound healing and joint restoration but has now been found to actually stimulate new hair growth. This therapy can be used in conjunction with the surgical hair restoration procedures or alone for patients electing not to have surgery. Non-surgically, several studies have shown increased hair density at 4 months lasting for approximately 11 months. Non-surgical injections of PRP are generally performed twice a year.
