Platelet-Rich Plasma

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for Hair Loss

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP for short, is a relatively new treatment – at least when it comes to hair loss. Despite being around since the 1980s, it’s only recently that doctors have began using it as a therapy for alopecia. However, its effectiveness is still disputed – with doctors and medical professionals on either side of the debate. So who’s right? Does PRP for hair loss actually work?

"PRP is a non-surgical procedure that uses the patient’s own blood to stimulate hair growth."

The first step is to draw blood from the body. This is done just like a doctor would if you were having a blood test.
Then, the blood is treated in a centrifuge. This separates the platelets – which are said to contain growth factors that promote hair growth – from the rest of the blood.
The end result is platelet-rich plasma. This is then injected back into the scalp using micro needles.

PRP is commonly used in hair transplant surgery to speed up post-operative recovery. But it can also be used as a standalone treatment to make hair thicker. Platelet-rich plasma contains around five times the number of platelets found in ordinary blood.



These platelets contain:
• Platelet-derived growth factor
• Transforming growth factor
• Growth factor 1
• Vascular endothelial growth factor
• Keratinocyte growth factor
All of which, conceivably, could have a positive impact on hair growth.
