PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy for hair loss is a three-step medical treatment in which a person’s blood is drawn, processed, and then injected into the scalp. PRP injections can be effective in treating thinning hair in both men and women, including male pattern baldness. PRP works to both prevent hair loss and promote new hair growth. PRP can also aid in the stimulation of hair growth after hair transplantation.
This innovative treatment produces results that are reliable and natural in the least invasive way. It is important that patients understand that results can be slow and gradual. Generally, results will begin to transpire after the first two or three months, and will be most noticeable around the six-month mark. Several treatments are needed spaced weeks apart for optimal results.
