Are you experiencing hair loss? Many people (especially men) are experiencing some level of hair loss and balding as early as their 20’s, but new research suggests that PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) can be used to increase hair regrowth!
PRP treatment for hair loss entails using one’s own blood platelets to regenerate hair growth and thicken existing hair. This is caused by the highly concentrated growth factors that are found in Platelet Rich Plasma. There are 7 growth factors contained in PRP that help stimulate the stem cells around the hair follicles.
A recent article from CBS Newsl also highlights the use of PRP for hair loss for women who experience problems as a result of menopause. While this option isn’t for everyone (if you’re completely bald for example), it is beneficial to those who are in the thinning stages, especially combined with treatments like Minoxidil and Propecia
Recently, “The Doctors” TV show also featured the use of PRP for hair loss. The feature highlighted PRP for hair loss as one of the best kept secrets in the field of dermatology noting that one study demonstrated 62/64 people experienced positive results.
Additional coverage of this treatment option was also featured on ABC News
