Hair Disorders Treated by PRP
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a treatment used alone and in conjunction with other treatment modalities for hair loss. PRP may be used in androgenic alopecia (male pattern and female pattern), Alopecia areata, telogen effluvium, and scarring alopecias.
How PRP Works
PRP is beneficial as a treatment for hair loss due to the high concentrations of platelets in plasma cells that help promote hair growth by prolonging the growing phase of the hair cycle
Typically, the PRP is injected monthly for three months. Then, a typical maintenance schedule could be treatment sessions every three or six months. The exact PRP injection schedule will depend on how you are responding to therapy.
