PRP Therapy

PRP therapy utilizes the healing properties of your own blood to stimulate hair growth and rejuvenate the scalp. This non-surgical procedure involves extracting a small amount of blood, isolating the platelet-rich plasma, and injecting it into the scalp. The growth factors in PRP promote hair follicle regeneration, increase blood circulation, and improve overall hair health.

What is platelet-rich plasma?

Recent years have shown medical professionals that the human body can heal itself. Injections of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) are becoming increasingly common for a wide range of medical issues, from traumatic injuries to hair loss. Our patient’s own blood cells are used to speed up recovery time. Regenerative medicine, such as PRP for hair loss, can take advantage of these strengths and boost your body’s own growth factors for tissue repair. On this page, however, we will concentrate on its potential to prevent and treat hair loss. First, though, let’s talk about PRP therapy.

Platelet-rich plasma is made up of two components: platelets, a type of blood cell that is crucial to overall bodily repair, and plasma, the liquid portion of blood. In addition to their well-known clotting properties, platelets also contain growth factors that can promote cell proliferation, encourage tissue regeneration, or hasten healing in the treated area. Simply said, PRP injections are blood that has more platelets than usual. Clinicians draw a blood sample from the patient and place it into a centrifuge, which quickly spins the sample, isolating the platelets from the other blood components and concentrating them inside the plasma. This process produces platelet-rich plasma. The damaged or ill body tissue is subsequently given an injection of these activated platelets. This causes the release of growth factors, which promote and boost your body’s production of reparative cells.

The connection between platelets and hair growth

One of the four main components of blood is platelets. Platelets aid in cell division and tissue repair. Platelets are enriched in platelet-rich plasma therapy by a factor of roughly five, as the name “platelet-rich plasma” suggests. A high concentration of platelets can be beneficial since platelets are known to secrete growth factors that aid in the healing process and tissue renewal. Injecting platelets into the scalp to the base of the hair follicle has been proposed as a PRP treatment for hair loss, as it may activate dermal papilla cells, which are thought to play a key role in hair growth.

How long does it last?

Platelet-rich plasma therapy is not a treatment that can reverse the effects of any disorders that lead to hair loss. Because of this, a person would require several PRP treatments from us over the course of their lifetime in order to sustain the benefits of their hair growth. The same is true for the drugs that are routinely used by medical professionals to treat androgenetic alopecia, such as oral finasteride and topical minoxidil (Regaine). It is important to note that a person’s health and the outcomes of their initial treatment will both play a role in our recommendations regarding the frequency with which a person should get treatment PRP. Once the hair loss has been brought under control, our doctor may consider getting maintenance PRP injections every three to six months.

Our Approach

There is some encouraging data on the effectiveness of PRP for hair loss. Remember that everyone’s outcomes will vary in appearance based on factors like their general health, blood platelet concentrations, and hair wellness. And the platelet concentration in your own blood may not be high enough for the PRP injection therapy to entirely restore your hair. Injections of platelet-rich plasma are thought to be harmless if administered by a doctor or other medical professional like the ones at XY Men’s Clinic. The risks and consequences associated with PRP hair treatment are minimal. It is still possible for a patient to develop an infection, sustain tissue damage, suffer heightened pain at the injection site, or harm the nerves in the area, which is why we are the best recommendation because all these possibilities are accounted for by our professionals. If you have mild to moderate hair loss and are thinking about PRP, you should first talk to our doctors to see if you are a good candidate for the therapy.

Frequently Asked Questions

PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) Hair Therapy is a regenerative treatment that uses the patient's own blood to promote hair growth and improve the condition of the scalp. The procedure involves extracting a small amount of blood, processing it to concentrate the platelet-rich plasma, and then injecting it into the scalp. PRP Hair Therapy can benefit men by stimulating hair follicles, increasing hair thickness, and improving overall scalp health, thereby promoting hair growth and reducing hair loss.

PRP Hair Therapy works by harnessing the growth factors and healing properties found in platelet-rich plasma. After the blood is drawn, it undergoes a centrifugation process to separate the platelet-rich plasma from other components. The concentrated plasma, rich in growth factors, is then injected into the scalp. The growth factors promote the regeneration of hair follicles, enhance blood circulation in the scalp, and stimulate the production of new, healthier hair.

During a PRP Hair Therapy session, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient. The blood is then processed using a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma. The separated plasma is carefully injected into the scalp using a fine needle or microneedling technique. The procedure is generally well-tolerated, and a topical anesthetic may be applied to minimize any discomfort. Multiple treatment sessions are usually recommended to achieve optimal results.

PRP Hair Therapy is considered a safe procedure with minimal risks. Since the treatment uses the patient's own blood, the chances of allergic reactions or infections are extremely low. However, mild side effects may occur, such as temporary redness, mild swelling, or slight discomfort at the injection sites. These effects typically subside within a few hours to days. It is important to choose a qualified medical professional to perform the procedure to minimize any potential risks.

The effects of PRP Hair Therapy can vary from person to person. Typically, noticeable improvements in hair growth and thickness can be observed after a series of treatment sessions. Maintenance sessions are usually recommended to sustain the results over time. The frequency of maintenance sessions will depend on individual factors, such as the extent of hair loss and desired outcomes.
