Platelet-Rich Plasma Hair Restoration
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections can be effective in treating pattern baldness, both in preventing hair loss and promoting new hair growth. PRP can also aid in the stimulation of hair growth after hair transplants.
PRP is also considered a safe, effective, steroid sparing, and alternative treatment for alopecia areata.
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy for hair loss is a three-step medical treatment in which a person’s blood is drawn, processed in a centrifuge, and then injected into the scalp.
PRP injections trigger natural hair growth and maintain it by increasing blood supply to the hair follicle and increasing the thickness of the hair shaft. Sometimes this approach is combined with other hair loss procedures or medications like BIOTIN.
There hasn’t been enough research to prove if PRP is an effective hair loss treatment. However, PRP therapy has been in use since the 1980s. It’s been used for problems such as healing injured tendons, ligaments, and muscles.
PRP hair treatments are designed for patients concerned with the thickness of their hair. If you, like many, are suffering from the effects of hair thinning or early pattern hair loss, PRP can help you maintain your hair density and promote new hair growth.
Platelet rich plasma therapy is also useful for those unable to go through surgery. This treatment is less invasive than most hair transplantation methods. Whether you’re looking to hide your hair transplant a little easier, or just concerned about a more invasive method, PRP treatments can successfully bridge the gap.
Equally, if you’ve already had a hair transplant, PRP injections can be a fantastic way to make sure that you’re making the most of your hair restoration journey! Increasing the blood supply to your young hair follicles can increase the thickness of the hair on your scalp.
PRP therapy is also suitable for men and women! Whilst other methods, such as beard or eyebrow transplants tend to appeal to one gender or the other, PRP therapy can be carried out on anyone. As has already been stated, PRP works by using your blood to nurture your own hair follicles.
Each PRP hair treatment for hair loss is usually carried out over the course of 4-6 weeks, with three treatments. Between 4 and 6 months after, a number of maintenance treatments may also be offered to maximise hair regrowth.
