Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy for Hair Loss
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is the isolated serum derived from a patient’s own blood which contains regenerative healing and growth factors. PRP is used in regenerative medicine applications in oral surgery, orthopedic surgery and cosmetic surgery. It has been adapted since that initial application to other surgical fields, including the field of Hair Restoration. It can be used as a stand alone treatment or in conjunction with Hair Restoration Surgery.
PRP use can be especially helpful in advanced cases of Female Pattern Hair Loss, and possibly as an investigational treatment for certain Cicatricial (“scarring”) Alopecias.
