PRP for Hair Loss: How Does It Work?

A variety of factors can cause hair loss. It is largely determined by a person's habits, genes, and surroundings. ACCORDING TO STUDIES, PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy is a relatively recent treatment for preventing hair loss and promoting hair growth, according to studies! Plasma therapy is a natural fountain of vitality for the skin and hair.


PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is a cutting-edge treatment that works for both men and women. It is used to treat thinning and balding hair and other hair problems. Patients' hair appears to be healthier and more revitalized in the days following injection. In the months following injection, hair follicles grow and are stimulated.


PRP therapy for hair loss is a three-step medical procedure that involves drawing, processing, and injecting a person's blood into the scalp. PRP injections stimulate and maintain natural hair growth by boosting blood flow to the hair follicle and thickening the hair shaft. PRP therapy usually involves three treatments spaced four to seven weeks apart. Every 4–7 months, maintenance treatments are required.


How Does PRP Work?

  1. Your blood is extracted and spun in a centrifuge, usually from your arm (a machine that spins rapidly to separate fluids of different densities)

  2. Your blood will have separated into three layers after about 10 minutes in the centrifuge: platelet-poor plasma, platelet-rich plasma, and red blood cells.

  3. The platelet-rich plasma is collected in a syringe and injected into areas of the scalp where hair growth is needed.

Hair loss can be managed with PRP in the following ways:

  • It contains various growth elements that stimulate hair follicles and promote new hair growth.

  • Increases and prolongs the hair's growth phase.

  • Improves the strength and quality of the hair shaft, which reduces hair loss.

  • Hair is less likely to split and break.
