In PRP therapy, the patient’s own blood is separated to gather growth-factor rich platelets. Injected into damaged tissue, the growth-factor stimulates healing, and has long been used by athletes after injuries or surgery. More recently PRP has become accepted as a hair restoration treatment. Could PRP help you to beat hair loss?
There is lots of evidence that supports the use of PRP therapy for hair growth stimulation. In 2014, researchers in India found that after having four PRP treatments, male pattern baldness sufferers had an increase of around 30% hair growth in thinning areas. An Italian study from 2017 supported the other scientist’s findings, demonstrating that male patients developed denser hair and a greater volume of strands when treated with PRP. There are many more studies which offer strong evidence that PRP is an excellent hair restoration solution.
Can PRP be combined with other hair restoration treatments?
PRP is an excellent choice for combining with other hair restoration treatments. Many men use it to enhance the effect of the medicines minoxidil and finasteride, or even to improve the results of their hair transplants.
What should I look for when choosing a PRP practitioner?
Although PRP therapy is a non-surgical treatment, it should only be performed by experienced and highly-trained technicians. You should choose a clinic that has an excellent reputation and can show you client result photos. It is also important that you feel comfortable – make sure that you can ask the team as many questions as you want to before deciding to go ahead with the treatment.
