PRP Treatment for Hair Loss

For many, hair loss is an unavoidable condition that comes with aging, but that doesn’t mean the condition can’t be fought. There are many methods of dealing with hair loss, from surgery to micropigmentation. Here at Miami Stem Cell, we offer a form of hair loss treatment that relies on platelet-rich plasma or PRP. Choosing PRP hair treatment as a stem cell therapy procedure is a new way to treat hair loss, but it is a promising treatment option that is worth considering.

What is PRP?
First and foremost, platelets are a component of our blood that promote healing and regeneration. Take a cut or scrape as an example. When you fall and receive an injury, platelets rush to the area to block the wound, stop the bleeding, and begin the healing process. This is because PRP contains proteins and growth factors that are designed to help us repair our bodies. PRP treatment takes those platelets from one’s own blood and injects them into damaged areas of the body to regenerate those areas.

The first step is extracting the platelet-rich plasma from the blood. A blood sample will be taken, and that blood will get placed into a centrifuge—a device that will separate the PRP from the rest of the blood. The standard application of platelet-rich plasma is using it to treat injuries in muscles, cartilage, ligaments, and other parts of the body that don’t heal as quickly or easily. Here, PRP stimulates the growth and healing of those sensitive areas.

How PRP Hair Treatment Works
Regarding hair loss, PRP’s regenerative properties have been put to use repairing damaged hair follicles. Androgenic alopecia is a common condition that causes hair follicles to shrink over time. PRP has the potential to reverse these effects to some degree, restoring those follicles and facilitating better hair regrowth. Several studies have been performed on the topic involving patients with androgenic alopecia. The results of these studies were that most of the patients saw their hair loss reduced, the density of their hair regrowth increased, and the diameter of the individual hairs strengthened. This is still a new area of treatment being studied, so the awareness of these effects is steadily growing. Nevertheless, the results of the studies are promising, and patients receiving these forms of treatment feel the effects.
