PRP as Hair Loss Treatment

Technology abounds us. Medical research with technology is advancing all the time. PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma has been researched, documented and applied as an injection to stimulate healing since 1998. Read more

Because of the reported healing actions, PRP is now becoming popular hair loss treatment option. “PRP therapy for hair loss is a treatment that involves withdrawing a patient’s own blood, processing it so that only the enriched cells (platelet-rich plasma) remain, and injecting it into the scalp. PRP contains essential proteins that stimulate natural hair growth.”[1]

PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma as hair Loss Treatment:

  • Reported healing action
  • Processing to enrich cells
  • Injected into the scalp
  • Becoming a popular hair loss treatment option

The basic idea behind PRP injections is to deliver high concentrations of growth factors to the scalp with the hope of stimulating hair growth. The problems I can see with PRP is the fact that it does not address the symptoms and causes. I have seen good results from PRP documented, but have also seen some of my clients spend a lot of money on the course of injections, with no result because they have not addressed the actual hair loss or hair thinning cause.

PRP, like all other Hair Loss Treatment options should address all symptoms and causes at the same time following correct diagnosis. There is simply no point using PRP alone for hair thinning, as a standalone treatment for hair loss or as a singular hair growth treatment. PRP could very well be a positive addition to hair loss treatment for women and men, but please be sure to understand and address your individual thinning hair and hair loss causes.
