If you are one of the 50 million men or 30 million women who suffers from hair loss, you may be considering different therapies, including PRP.
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is one of the most popular ways for patients to naturally regrow their own hair, and it doesn’t require surgery, incisions, or downtime.
Despite these benefits, you may still have some reservations about the procedure and want to know: Does PRP work for hair loss?
Continue reading to learn all about PRP efficacy and if it’s right for you.
What Is PRP?
PRP is a nonsurgical treatment that harvests platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from a sample of the patient’s own blood to stimulate hair growth.
It is an excellent option for men and women who suffer from hair loss and/or thinning and want to improve hair count, thickness, and volume, without surgery or downtime.
Does PRP Work for Hair Loss?
If you are contemplating hair rejuvenation, you may be wondering: Does PRP work for hair loss?
PRP is a safe and effective method of hair restoration for many men and women, including those with androgenic alopecia.
Studies have demonstrated PRP’s ability to:
- Increase the number of hair follicles
- Improve hair thickness
- Increase the strength of hair roots
A 2019 study also showed that PRP for hair loss was far more effective than the topical application of Rogaine (minoxidil).
How Many PRP Treatments Will I Need?
In most cases, patients benefit from three PRP sessions spaced a month apart, followed by a 4th and 5th session completed at three month intervals.
Annual or biannual maintenance sessions can also help individuals preserve PRP results for years to come.
