PRP Treatments for Hair Growth

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, treatments can help facilitate hair growth, which can restore individuals’ confidence and give them a fresh outlook.

Plasma is the clear, straw-colored component of blood, and platelet-rich plasma is high concentration of platelets in its own plasma.

For PRP treatments, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient, and the platelets are separated from other components of the blood via a centrifuge. The high concentration of biologic nutrient rich cells is then activated to release at least eight essential growth factors and signaling proteins.

The treatment involves the injection of the patient’s PRP into the scalp. Generally, three treatments are performed, 4-6 weeks apart from one another, and booster treatment is routinely administered three months later. Once the initial four treatments are completed, annual maintenance treatments may be required.

Typically, a noticeable result is seen after the third treatment. PRP may be used as a single therapy or as an adjuvant to other treatments, including finasteride orally and/or minoxidil topically.

Consult your doctor before beginning PRP treatment. PRP is generally a safe treatment, as one’s own platelets are injected back into the individual. Certain medications may affect your blood, which can impact whether or not you are an ideal candidate for the hair growth treatment. These medications include but are not limited to aspirin, ginseng, and gingko.
