PRP Hair Regrowth

For those dealing with a receding hairline, shedding, or diffuse thinning, relief can be achieved with state-of-the-art PRP injections. In recent years, platelet-rich plasma has become a popular treatment option to replenish the hair follicles. This natural approach uses the body’s own healing power to revitalize and regenerate the patient’s hair growth.

What Is PRP?

Certain components in the blood have the ability to induce a natural healing process. Plasma contains platelets that are well-known for their various beneficial growth factors. When concentrated and used properly, these components can restore the hair from the inside out. With a PRP treatment, a small amount of the patient’s blood is drawn, allowing the practitioner to isolate and reinject the platelet-rich plasma. 

What Is PRP Hair Restoration?

While many may believe otherwise, hair loss usually isn’t an indication that the hair follicles are gone forever. In most cases, the follicles have simply lain dormant and are no longer going through their natural growth cycle. PRP is an excellent treatment option that allows patients to avoid approaches such as hair transplants or medication.

After it’s injected into the scalp, PRP has the ability to stimulate new stem cell growth in the hair follicles’ roots. This process works by waking up the hair follicles and rebooting their hair production process. PRP can also stimulate vital blood flow, which promotes normal hair growth. Results may take time to emerge, as the hair grows in several distinct phases (anagen, catagen, and telogen).

What Can I Expect from the Procedure?

PRP treatments always begin with the practitioner drawing the patient’s blood. Next, the blood is placed in a centrifuge. This device spins the small vial of blood around at high speed, resulting in the separation of the plasma from the unrequired cells. As a hair loss treatment, PRP can be injected in the same way that dermal fillers are. This is the most common method for administering PRP to the scalp.

What Are The Causes of Hair Loss?

The average number of hairs that a person sheds each day is said to be around 100. As new hair is constantly growing, regular hair shedding usually goes unnoticed. It is when new hairs do not quickly replace shed hairs that the scalp can start to appear thinned out. Hair loss can often be linked to the following factors:

  • Diet and lifestyle – Certain foods, such as gluten, dairy, and sugar, can lead to hair loss in sensitive individuals. A sedentary lifestyle can also be a contributing factor, as exercise is important for proper blood flow. 
  • Fluctuations in hormone levels – Pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause can all cause fluctuations in hormone levels, leading to temporary hair loss or shedding (called telogen effluvium).
  • Infections and medical conditions – In some cases, hair loss may result from a thyroid issue or a hampered immune system. Scalp infections, ringworm, and trichotillomania can be factors in hair loss, as well. 
  • Heredity – While there is usually an environmental stressor, it is the genes that dictate a patient’s susceptibility to hair loss. 
  • Medications – Certain cancer drugs and medications for depression, heart problems, arthritis, and hypertension can potentially contribute to hair loss.
  • Radiation – After receiving radiation to the scalp, some patients find that their hair does not grow back properly.
  • Stress – Excessive amounts of stress can result in hair shedding. 
  • Certain hairstyles and hair treatments – Pulling or tying hair very tightly can result in traction alopecia. Perms and hot oil treatments are also known to negatively impact hair growth.

Am I A Candidate?

The criteria for candidacy with PRP are not very stringent. Overall, PRP is ideal for patients who are looking for a natural and non-invasive approach to restoring their locks. That said, there are certain factors that can influence a patient’s eligibility, including the following:

  • Pregnancy
  • Excess scar tissue
  • Certain blood disorders

What Can I Expect From My Results?

For most patients, several PRP treatment sessions are needed to attain the ideal results. With hair restoration, the average frequency of PRP sessions is once a month for four to six months, depending on how the patient’s hair responds to the treatments. The biggest jump in growth typically occurs several months after the first round of PRP appointments. Only two sessions a year are usually required for maintenance after that.
