PRP Therapy for Hair Loss: Does It Work?

We had a client come in the other day and say, “PRP therapy for hair loss: does it work?”

Are you struggling with hair loss or thinning hair? There is now a non-surgical option available, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapeutic hair restoration. Current research shows this procedure to have promising potential for new hair growth. Effective for both male and female pattern hair loss, PRP Therapy has also regrown hair in alopecia areata patients and other common non-hereditary hair loss cases.

So, how does this work? Basically, PRP stimulates newly implanted or inactive hair follicles with a small injection under the scalp. Using a small amount of the patients own blood, it is processed or ‘spun down’ to create a serum. Blood contains small cells called platelets, that contain a specific growth characteristic that when activated will promote tissue regeneration. This serum is then injected into the areas of thinning hair. No sedation or medication is required for this procedure.

PRP is an all-natural medical therapy performed by a doctor as an out patient procedure. The recovery from PRP Therapy is typically uneventful. Some patients experience mild swelling of the forehead but subsides within 48 hours. There is no downtime with this procedure so patients can go back to normal activities immediately, including washing their hair after the procedure. PRP Therapy was recently showcased on Good Morning America in a segment about hair loss for women.

Of course, PRP is not a cure for baldness, but it certainly shows promise for those with thinning hair. Individual results will vary based on factors of hereditary baldness, or other medical conditions that contribute to hair loss.
