PRP as a Hair Loss Treatment
There has been growing interest in PRP as a treatment for androgenic alopecia in the medical community. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a non-surgical injection treatment that uses the components of a person’s own blood to stimulate hair growth. The PRP is processed here in our clinic after a routine blood draw, then processed to remove the concentrated platelets and then reinjected back into the areas of thinning or baldness with a fine needle.
PRP is a non-surgical therapeutic option for men and women to stimulate hair growth using the patient’s own blood and concentrating it down in our lab and then reinjecting into the scalp.
Preliminary evidence shown in numerous studies suggest a beneficial role in hair regrowth. Many of the studies done to date conclude that PRP injections appear to be
effective. Patients rate the outcome satisfaction greater than 70%. Realself.com gives it a 92% review. Individual results of course will vary.
This affordable treatment effectively can halt or reverse the thinning hair follicles. It will not work on areas of long term hair loss. Results will not be noticeable for four to six months of treatment. Hair regrowth will be gradual as new hair grows only in the anagen phase of the hair cycle.
Treatments should be performed every 4-6 weeks to match the natural hair growth cycle
for 4-6 months and then follow up treatments every 6-12 months.
