Another Study Finds PRP Ineffective as Pattern
Hair Loss Treatment
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) has recently made headlines as a “miracle cure” for many ailments, including skin rejuvenation and hair loss.
But a new study has found that the technique – in which a patient’s blood is “enriched” before being reinjected into the body – is not effective for the treatment of hair loss.
According to the Healio Health website, the small-scale trial involved 26 women with the genetic disorder. Hair loss in women. Fifteen of them were assigned to treatment, the others receiving a placebo.
The results showed that only 13.3% of patients who received treatment (ie two people) found substantial improvements at the end of the 26-week study.
The PRP treatment in Lahore involves introducing a sample of the patient’s blood into a special centrifuge so that the blood separates into components. The platelets – which the body uses for healing – and the growth factor proteins are extracted and then reinjected into the scalp.
Generally, the scalp is first “excited” using a technique called microneedling, which uses a pen-shaped device (or sometimes a roller) to “puncture” the surface of the scalp with dozens of small needles. This can also help with the absorption of topical medications.
In the latest study on hair loss, the researchers indicated that the experience of these patients was perhaps more positive than the observable results. More than one quarter of patients in the treatment group reported that their hair was thinner after treatment, while 18.2% of patients in the placebo group did so, although none of them showed any observable signs. hair growth.
The researchers wrote in their article, published in the journal Dermatologic Surgery, that: “Although the results of this pilot study conducted with a small number of patients have not demonstrated the effectiveness of the PRP, some of its results suggest that PRP, or treatment of scalp needles, may be promising in the treatment of female androgenetic alopecia. “
In other words, it is possible that microneedling – or the switch of the scalp – played a determining role in hair growth. This is not a new idea: at least one study on the effectiveness of microneedling has been announced. A Vancouver-based team uses a microneedling device in combination with the clinically proven, medically proven, topical medication for hair loss.
Hair growth ‘booster’
While medical trials have so far confirmed that treatment with PRP and microneedling are not promising as a first treatment option for hair loss. As a secondary reminder to complement clinically proven options, the latest trial shows that PRP and microneedling can still play a role.
This corroborates the similar results of a clinical trial conducted in 2015 in Barcelona. This study examined the effects of PRP on androgenetic alopecia in men and women. He found that in cases of female hair loss and male pattern baldness, plasma treatment potentially had only one advantage as an “auxiliary” or “secondary” supplement. It was not an effective treatment for this type of hereditary hair loss per se.
From this perspective, PRP is similar – albeit more painful and invasive – to low intensity laser treatment (LLLT). The original and most popular Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) household device is the Lasercomb HairMax, which has a patented system with an ergonomic and practical brush-like design that separates the hair when you pass it over your scalp. This ensures that light therapy is delivered directly to the scalp rather than having to penetrate the hair to prevent hair thinning and promote hair growth. This device is extremely popular among hairskill customers in addition to their pharmacy courses.
At present, the main essential component that is the cornerstone of hair loss treatment in a female pharmaceutical model is a solution applied directly to the scalp once or twice daily, as directed. This is called minoxidil and is the only treatment for androgenetic alopecia approved and approved by the FDA and the MHRA for women. At hairskill, we offer a range of high strength minoxidils that have produced impressive results for many of our customers, as evidenced by our success stories of treating hair loss in women.
