If your hair is starting to thin, surgery is not the only option. Plasma-Rich Platelets (PRP) treatments provide hair loss reduction and stimulate regrowth using a simple outpatient procedure.

You'll experience benefits like increased blood flow to your hair follicles, more hair density and decreased hair loss. It will also trigger and maintain the growth phase of your hair follicles.

Patient Information about Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for Hair Thinning and Loss

A person's blood is comprised of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Platelets are small, disk-shaped cell fragments that facilitate clotting, promote tissue regeneration, and secrete growth factors that initiate cell regrowth. When a sample of a person's blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge, the red blood cells are separated from the platelets and plasma components. This separated "solid" portion of the blood, or platelet-rich plasma, contains approximately five to seven times the number of platelets found in normal circulating blood along with concentrated bioactive proteins that assist in wound healing. PRP has proven effective in speeding the recovery of individuals who have suffered from many types of injury, including sporting accidents and other traumas.

Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP, can benefit individuals suffering from hair thinning or loss in several different ways. First, injecting the concentrated PRP into the scalp can increase the size and healthiness of hair follicles that have begun to shrink due to related genetic baldness called androgenic alopecia. PRP can also be used in conjunction with surgical hair transplantation procedures such as Follicular Unit Extraction (NeoGraft). When combined, it helps to counteract the "shock loss" and to encourage the newly grafted follicular units to take root and begin to grow. Finally, PRP serves as an excellent, nutrient-rich transport material for donor follicle units between extraction and implantation, keeping the follicles in a healthy state that significantly improves their survival rate and overall hair transplant results.

The optimal candidate to receive PRP therapy includes men and women of all ages, who are generally in good, and who do not have any medical conditions that might impair healing. PRP has proven most effective in treating androgenic alopecia, responsible for approximately 90% of all hair fall. However, we have had great success in using PRP to treat men and women suffering from traction alopecia or hair thinning because of wearing too-tight ponytails, braids, and other styles that strain or damage the follicles. Because PRP works with the body's natural healing processes, it works best on individuals who have only recently begun to lose hair. PRP has been less successful in restoring hair growth to individuals whose follicles have miniaturized and not produced hair in several years and in those individuals whose follicles are permanently damaged from the effects of scarring alopecia.

PRP treatments at Comprehensive Hair Solutions can generally be performed in our offices in under an hour. The frequency of these treatments varies depending on the degree and type of the individual's hair loss. Still, we typically recommend three initial treatments four weeks apart, followed by a repeat treatment at the 6th and 12th months after the first to achieve the best results.
