Though baldness affects more men than women, both sexes can be impacted by hair loss and thinning. This can have serious impacts on self-esteem and confidence, which is why many seek treatments to regrow lost hair. Most treatments for thinning hair involve medication or hair transplants – but platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for hair loss is different.

How does PRP work ?

PRP is a concentrated fluid extracted from your own blood, with added growth factors and essential proteins that encourage hair regrowth, and is more effective for patients with recent hair loss, have thinning hair or are losing hair due to stress or illness.

What can PRP treat ?

Symptoms necessitating PRP injections include hair thinning, hair loss and bald spots. These highly visible conditions are irreversible without the intervention of an outside stimulant such as PRP injections.

What is a PRP session like ?

A topical anaesthesia is usually administered to the treatment area, other sedation solutions are offered as recommended by your dermatologist.

The procedure for hair loss begins by separating the platelets in the blood using a centrifuge. Once complete, the platelet-rich plasma is carefully injected into the patient’s target area on the scalp, at the level of the hair follicles.

What results can be expected from PRP ?

Look for results between three and six months after treatment, with swelling and discomfort for 2-3 days of the treated area. However, keep in mind that many factors can affect when results appear and how pronounced they are. These factors include your sex, age, hormonal balance, blood flow, and more.

PRP can also be used to stimulate collagen growth resulting in improvement in skin texture, tone, wrinkles and scars.

Candidates
Anyone experiencing hair loss is a good candidate for PRP treatments, but those with early hair loss tend to respond the best. PRP is also used for some patients suffering from certain types of alopecia areata.

If you are suffering from wrinkles, stretch marks, or scars, PRP treatments may be an ideal treatment option for you.

It is best to sit down with your board-certified dermatologist to determine what the best treatment option is for your skin and hair goals.

Results
For best results, multiple, consistent PRP treatments are key. Treatments are commonly performed once a month for three to four months, then every three to six months depending on the patient’s response and results.

For individuals using PRP for hair loss the first result you will notice is a decrease in hair shedding, followed by regrowth. For individuals using PRP to improve a skin condition you will usually notice improved texture, smaller pores and softer skin within 3 to 4 weeks.
