PRP For Hair Loss – Its Uses & Benefits

PRP Hair Restoration

Hair loss is a problem that affects millions of people all over the world. This has many causes, but the primary cause is genetic predisposition. Hair loss can occur when the hair follicle thins or weakens and eventually falls off. Men often experience hair loss at a greater degree in comparison to women. Though for women, it is usually hair thinning and not complete baldness. Since hair loss is such a common occurrence, many doctors have been working on discovering new solutions that can benefit both males and females. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatment has earned the attention of medical professionals as well as the patients who need it. 

Even though PRP for hair loss is gaining popularity, there are still many questions about the benefits and effectiveness that this procedure offers.

Below are the most frequently asked questions about PRP’s benefits for hair loss in both men and women.

HOW IS PRP USED?

The first step in PRP hair loss therapy at About Face Anti-Aging is to withdraw the patient’s blood and then separate the platelet-rich plasma. Next, combine the PRP with a specially-produced activation compound. 

The solution is injected into the patient’s skin through injections, but the skin is numbed with anaesthesia before the procedure begins. The injections are given in the areas where the patient needs hair to be restored.

Some experts use PRP to stop and then reverse hair thinning, while others combine it with hair transplants. Platelet Rich Plasma is used after hair transplant procedures as it helps with hair growth recovery.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PRP HAIR THERAPY 

  • Own Blood Used – One of the main highlights that patients and doctors appreciate is that the Platelet Rich Plasma treatment utilizes the patient’s own blood, so the risks associated with donor blood are entirely eliminated. Since blood is naturally produced by our bodies, irritations, sensitive reactions, and other incidents generally do not occur with PRP hair restoration treatment. It is perfect for those who don’t want to use artificial chemicals or donated blood.
  • High Success Rate – The second most significant benefit is the effectiveness and high success rate of the PRP treatment. Medical research shows that PRP treatment is effective when used to stimulate the rejuvenation of hair follicles.

PRP treatment works better for some conditions than for others. For example, PRP for hair loss has been confirmed to be most efficient with androgenic and hereditary alopecia. These two problems cause hair follicles to become very thin until the hair no longer grows. The effects of Platelet Rich Plasma hair loss treatment on these issues are typically seen within 3 to 6 months after one undergoes treatment. 

The best outcomes are also seen with patients who begin PRP treatment after a recent hair loss rather than those who left treatment until their condition was advanced. This is because the treatment works better when hair follicles are still present.

Alopecia areata (a spot baldness condition that occurs because the immune system attacks the hair follicles) is another illness that can be treated effectively with PRP. 

An important consideration for many patients is the cost of the procedure. PRP hair loss treatment is affordable and cost-effective, especially when other options such as surgeries are compared.
