What Is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy?

Platelet Rich Plasma therapy uses a natural product produced from a small sample of the patient’s blood, drawn at the beginning of the procedure. The blood is placed in a centrifuge where the different constituents of the blood are segregated. The platelet-rich plasma is isolated and injected into the patient’s scalp.

PRP therapy, widely used in treating wounds and restoring joints, has been found to also stimulate new hair growth. Several studies have shown that non-surgical PRP injections significantly increase hair density and are generally performed twice a year.

PRP therapy for hair loss is a three-step medical treatment in which a person’s blood is drawn, processed, and then injected into the scalp.

Some in the medical community think that PRP injections trigger natural hair growth and maintain it by increasing blood supply to the hair follicle and increasing the thickness of the hair shaft. Sometimes this approach is combined with other hair loss procedures or medications.

There hasn’t been enough research to prove if PRP is an effective hair loss treatment. However, PRP therapy has been in use since the 1980s. It’s been used for problems such as healing; injured tendons, ligaments, and muscles.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Can You Expect During PRP Injections?

PRP injections for hair restoration include injecting platelet-rich plasma into the scalp area where the hair is thinner. After extracting blood, it is processed in a centrifuge that spins the blood to separate platelets from red blood cells. Injections are then administered into the appropriate area of the scalp.

Injecting platelet-rich plasma into the area of inactive hair follicles puts into motion a process of activating dormant growth cycles. Most patients need several sittings to achieve optimal results.

How Long Does a PRP Treatment Take?

The treatment begins with the drawing of blood that will take less than a minute. The second step of centrifugation lasts approximately fifteen minutes. Before the start of the procedure, local anesthesia may be given. The PRP is strategically injected into the scalp areas with receding hair. After the treatment is accomplished, you can return home with a few post-procedure instructions to maintain the effectiveness of the treatment. They could include avoiding sun exposure to the area, avoiding certain medications or other hair treatments. The results of this treatment will begin to reflect within six months, especially if you have had a full course of treatments.
