In recent years, PRP Therapy has become an increasingly popular option amongst women seeking a solution for hair loss. In this blog, we explain how the treatment can help to beat female hair loss and maintain a healthy head of hair.
What is PRP Therapy?
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy is a treatment which uses injections of plasma to stimulate healing and circulation. The plasma solution is made by first taking a small sample of the patient’s blood. The blood is spun in a centrifuge, causing it to separate into its different components. The plasma which is extracted is highly concentrated and contains around three times the number of platelets as circulating blood. These platelets work to promote healing and cell growth, and accelerate the rate of tissue regeneration. Research has shown that when the PRP solution is injected into the scalp, inactive and dormant follicles can be stimulated with results including regrowth and improved condition.
Can PRP Therapy Help You?
PRP Therapy can help to promote hair growth if the hair follicles are alive and undamaged. This means that it can be beneficial for women who have telogen effluvium resulting from stress, or who have experienced excess shedding after pregnancy. It can also be helpful in treating early-stage traction alopecia, as well as androgenetic alopecia (pattern baldness).
Get The Best Results with PRP Therapy
Though individual needs vary, it is generally recommended that those starting PRP Therapy have four treatment sessions each year for the best results. As the hair condition improves, the amount of time between sessions can be increased. While PRP has been proven as effective as a stand-alone treatment, it can also be used in combination with other hair loss solutions for an enhanced result. Options include using it with minoxidil or LLLT, or after having hair transplant surgery.
