Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is a revolutionary new advancement in the field of hair restoration. With this cutting-edge technology, women suffering from hair loss – including those with Androgenic Alopecia (Female Pattern Hair Loss), Alopecia Areata, and Traction Alopecia – may grow a fuller, healthier head of hair. Let’s take a look at how PRP Therapy can be an effective hair loss treatment for those with Female Pattern Hair Loss.

What Is PRP Therapy?

PRP Therapy stimulates hair follicles at the source. On a cellular level, PRP Therapy utilizes the platelets and growth factors in your own blood to revitalize follicles and restore hair. These platelets signal stem cells to jump into action and heal weakened follicle cells. With continued treatment, those now stronger follicles can grow a thicker, healthier hair. PRP Therapy is very safe and has few, if any, side effects.

What Is the PRP Therapy Procedure?

PRP Therapy is non-surgical and requires very little, if any down-time. At the beginning of the procedure, we first draw a small portion of blood and spin it in a centrifuge to isolate a highly concentrated platelet-rich preparation.  After administering a local numbing agent to the area being treated, this platelet-rich preparation is then reintroduced into the scalp.

How Long Is the PRP Therapy Process?

PRP Therapy generally takes three months to complete the recommended series, with one treatment done per month.  Each treatment takes less than hour to complete. PRP Therapy candidates generally notice improvements in their hair within a year; however, for some women that timeline may be much shorter.

What Studies Have Been Conducted Surrounding PRP Therapy?

A litany of studies have been conducted to examine the success of PRP Therapy, including studies published by the British Journal of Dermatology, the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery, the European Journal of Plastic Surgery, the International Hair Research Foundation, and BioMed Research International.
