Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy Increases Hair Growth by 24 Percent
Patients treated with PRP experience 42 percent increase in hair thickness
A new analysis of the evidence on platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy confirms that it can activate inactive hair follicles and reverse hair thinning. Platelet Rich Plasma for Androgenetic Alopecia: Does It Work? The evidence from the meta-analysis was published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology.
PRP therapy is a scalp treatment procedure that uses cells involved in tissue healing to treat hair loss. Use the patient’s own blood to rejuvenate thinning hair. At Hairskill, we begin PRP therapy with the removal of a small amount of blood, which is placed in a closed-system centrifuge to separate platelet-rich plasma from whole blood. This concentrated platelet-rich plasma is mixed with ACell, a cell regeneration product approved by the FDA, and then injected into the scalp treatment area.
These cells are rich in growth factors that promote tissue healing.
The article examined six different studies with 177 patients who used PRP to stimulate the hair of the scalp. The findings of Doctor confirmed the effectiveness of PRP to increase hair growth, with a 24 percent increase in hair per square cm with PRP Treatment Center in Lahore. In addition, Doctor reports that the percentage increase in cross-sectional hair thickness for those who underwent PRP therapy was 42 percent after treatment.
The effects were observed in both men and women.
These findings reflect the very positive results of patients we have observed in Hairskill among patients who have benefited from PRP therapy. Often, we see that the thinning is reversed, which restores the fullness of the patient’s hair. In addition, PRP therapy has been shown to be well tolerated in patients. We apply a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort, and patients often describe a mild “sunburn” after the procedure that usually dissipates rapidly. There may also be minor bleeding during the procedure. We recommend that patients avoid taking anti-inflammatory medications as they can interfere with the natural healing process stimulated by PRP.
“PRP contains a large number of growth factors such as platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), transforming growth factor (TGF) -b, FGF and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF); all participate in the renewal of tissue, “
Doctor recommends an initial series of three to four treatments, each three weeks apart, followed by a maintenance program of one PRP treatment every six months thereafter.
A simple reason to follow a maintenance program is that the condition responsible for hair loss in androgenetic alopecia is the genetic inheritance of a hair pattern that is sensitive to the miniaturizing effect of DHT in these follicles. Therefore, if PRP Therapy is completed in the future, the benefit may be lost.
One thing that Doctor review did not take into account is that the quality of PRP therapy can vary widely, which can have a significant impact on patient outcomes. At Hairskill, we understand that the training and competence of the staff, together with the strict compliance with the preparation protocols, the centrifugation adjustments, the preparation kits and the use of ACell contribute to the positive results of the patient.
It is also noteworthy that, unfortunately, patients with an absence of hair follicles are not good candidates for PRP therapy. Healthy hair follicles must be present for the PRP to stimulate the growth of new hair.
