Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) contains several important growth factors that have been found to have substantial positive effects on the growth cycle of hair follicles by stimulating stem cells in the hair follicle itself.
What type of hair loss can PRP treat?
Alopecia, or hair loss, is often caused by a disruption in the growth normal cycle of the hair follicle, and PRP treatment can help stimulate hair growth by supporting several important processes during these life cycles on a molecular level.
Every patient will respond differently to treatment depending on the cause and severity of their hair loss, but many people respond with improved appearance and hair growth after just 3 treatments. Other added benefits of PRP treatment are avoiding surgery and the negative side effects (sexual dysfunction and mood disturbance) associated with common medical treatments such as minoxidil (AKA Rogaine).
