PRP Hair Loss

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy for hair loss is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure that uses your own blood to stimulate hair growth. PRP is rich in growth factors and platelets, which are essential for tissue repair and regeneration. When injected into the scalp, PRP can help strengthen hair follicles, promote hair growth, and improve the overall quality of your hair.

PRP therapy is used to address various types of hair loss, including:

  • Androgenetic Alopecia: Commonly known as male or female pattern baldness, this hereditary condition leads to thinning of hair in a predictable pattern.

  • Alopecia Areata: An autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss in patches.

  • Traction Alopecia: Hair loss resulting from excessive tension or pulling on the hair, often due to hairstyles like tight braids or ponytails.

  • Consultation: Your doctor will examine your scalp, discuss your medical history, and determine if PRP therapy is suitable for you.

  • Blood Collection: A small amount of your blood (typically around 16 milliliters) will be drawn from your arm, similar to a routine blood test.

  • Centrifugation: The collected blood will be placed in a centrifuge machine to separate the platelets and growth factors from the rest of the blood components.

  • PRP Injection: The concentrated PRP solution will be carefully injected into specific areas of your scalp where hair thinning or loss is occurring.

  • Recovery: PRP therapy is usually an outpatient procedure, and you can typically resume regular activities shortly afterward. Your doctor may provide specific post-procedure instructions.

  • Natural Approach: PRP therapy utilizes your body's natural healing mechanisms to stimulate hair growth.

  • Minimal Discomfort: The procedure involves only minor discomfort, and local anesthesia can be used to minimize any potential discomfort during the injections.

  • No Downtime: PRP therapy is non-surgical, and most patients can return to their daily routine immediately.

  • Potential Hair Regrowth: Many patients experience improvement in hair density, thickness, and overall quality after PRP therapy.

  • Multiple Sessions: Achieving optimal results often requires multiple PRP sessions spaced several weeks apart.

  • Gradual Improvement: Hair regrowth is a gradual process and may become noticeable after a few months of treatment.

  • Individual Variations: Results may vary from person to person, and not all individuals will experience the same level of improvement.

PRP therapy for hair loss is a promising option for individuals seeking to address hair thinning and promote hair growth without surgery. Please schedule a consultation with one of our physiciains to determine if PRP therapy is right for your specific hair loss condition and goals.

As with any medical procedure, it's important to seek advice from a qualified healthcare provider before undergoing treatment.
