Using PRP for Hair Loss

If over the counter or natural remedies aren’t helping, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy may be another option.

PRP is a substance that is injected into the scalp and drawn from your blood that may assist with the healing of body tissues, including the very follicles of hair.

PRP is removed from your blood using a centrifugal process capable of isolating the material from the blood and boosting the concentration of different healing-promoting proteins.

In a study involving more than eleven people dealing with alopecia (hair loss or baldness), injecting about two centimeters of PRP into the scalp for three months may increase the number of follicles as well as improve the thickness of hair and the root strength.

PRP may be a solution worth exploring and discussing with your doctor.
