What Is PRP Hair Restoration?
Even though it is common, hair loss can have a profoundly detrimental effect on a person’s confidence and self-esteem. But hair loss does not have to be inevitable. It also doesn’t have to be permanent. There are many new, highly-effective treatments on the market that can reverse the signs of hair loss. One very promising treatment is the injection of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) into the scalp. Keep reading to learn more about what PRP hair restoration is and if it might be the right choice to treat your hair loss.

The Causes and Effects of Hair Loss
Alopecia, the medical term for hair loss, is often a normal part of aging. But hair loss is not just related to age. It might also result from hormonal shifts, hereditary factors, or from medical conditions or treatments like chemotherapy. While hair loss can happen on any part of the body, it is most noticeable (and troubling) when it occurs on the head. Gradual hair loss is the most common type of hair loss. The change is so gradual a person may not notice until about 50% of their hair is already gone. Additionally, a person may also lose hair in patches or suddenly through shock (though this is often temporary). If you are concerned about your hair loss, speak to a medical professional.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections Have Many Applications
While platelet-rich plasma injections are promising in hair-loss treatments, this technology has many applications. A medical professional takes a blood sample from a patient and, using a centrifuge, separates the red blood cells from the plasma (the yellowish liquid portion of the blood) and the platelets. In addition to helping form clots, platelets contain growth factors that can stimulate cell growth and tissue regeneration. Injections of platelet-rich plasma have improved outcomes for recovering wounds and joint injuries and can significantly improve the results of certain cosmetic procedures, including hair restoration.
PRP Injections for Hair Restoration
In addition to wound and joint care, PRP injections into the scalp may be a solution to thinning hair, particularly for those experiencing male pattern baldness. But, PRP hair restoration is not an overnight solution. PRP hair restoration will take several weeks and multiple treatments to begin to see results. A medical professional will test your blood to see if you have enough platelets and growth factors to determine if PRP injections are the right treatment for you.
Despite some of the uncertainty about this treatment, PRP is also much less invasive than other hair replacement treatments. Alternatively, PRP injections may be coupled with other hair-replacement treatment options to support the outcomes of those procedures better.
