Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are a non-surgical, minimally invasive method to stimulate hair growth in individuals with different hair conditions. The process involves administering concentrated samples of a patient’s own platelets into the treatment site to encourage the cell growth necessary for healthy hair.
PRP treatments are effective for both men and women, especially those suffering from androgenetic alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness or female pattern hair loss. PRP, however, is useful for many other reasons, regardless of whether or not androgenetic alopecia is present.
Why Try PRP Treatments for Hair Growth?
If you are experiencing early symptoms of balding, PRP treatments may help you stop the progression of hair loss. Other reasons to undergo this treatment include the following:
Treat Random Patches of Hair Loss
When your immune system mistakenly attacks your hair follicles and causes patchy hair loss, you may have the disease known as alopecia areata. The most noticeable symptom of this condition is gradual hair loss that results in bald patches on the scalp.
When activated and injected into thinning or balding regions on the head, PRP’s concentrated combination of cytokines and growth factors stimulates dormant hair follicles, resulting in new hair growth.
Improve Hair Quality
Thinning, weak hair can benefit from a series of PRP treatments to improve hair quality.
Platelets in the highly concentrated plasma produce growth factors, which have been demonstrated to promote hair development and enhance the quality and quantity of existing hair.
Supplement Hair Transplant Surgery
PRP injections may enhance the outcomes of hair transplant surgery by promoting cell growth and tissue formation in the treated region.
If your hair transplant went well, your scalp should accept the donor follicles and start making new, healthy hairs where they were transplanted. The benefits of healthy donor follicles on your hair may be further amplified with the aid of PRP injections, which stimulate cell development and regeneration.
