PRP for Hair Stimulation and Growth

In the medical treatment of male and female pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia), PRP can be injected into the balding scalp to potentially stimulate thin (miniaturized) hair to grow into thicker (terminal) hairs. This is a relatively newer application of PRP.

Who is a Candidate?

PRP can be a great choice for patients who notice significantly reduced or thinning hair or who have already maximized other medical therapies6. Patients with thinning, but not totally bald, areas would be the best candidates. The use of activated PRP (using calcium to stimulate the PRP prior to injection) is now becoming more widely used as patients are getting better results with less treatments.

What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) has been well established in fields like: dentistry, wound healing and orthopedic surgery. It involves drawing one’s blood then isolating the platelet rich portion for use in medical therapy. Platelets were once thought to only help with blood clotting, but we now understand that they secrete valuable cytokines (cell messengers) and growth factors, including but not limited to the following:

  • Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF)
  • Transforming growth factor (TGF)
  • Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)
  • Insulin-like growth factor (IGF)
  • Epidermal growth factor (EGF)
  • Interleukin-1 (IL-1)

It is conjectured that the introduction of these substances, platelet rich plasma (PRP) can amplify the body’s naturally-occurring wound healing mechanism and stimulate regeneration of tissues.

Advantages of PRP Hair Stimulation Therapy

This is based on mouse studies showing hair follicle regeneration after wounding. Clinical studies have also shown successful hair regrowth using micro needling in men who failed to respond to other therapies. While the scalp is anesthetized, we recommend also making use of this additional method of hair regrowth.

FAQ on

PRP Treatment

PRP injections are the future of medicine. Using the components in your own blood, our doctors can stimulate healing that starts from deep within. First, we’ll withdraw some of your blood; then we’ll put your blood into one of our advanced centrifuges to extract the platelets. (Platelets are known to contain growth factors that spur healing.) We’ll then inject that solution directly at the site of your injury, in some cases using ultrasound to guide us. Once in place, the growth factors in the platelets will stimulate your body to repair and heal itself. Usually, you can experience deep healing in only 1-3 injections.

 

We believe that PRP should be used to treat these injuries because put simply, PRP heals. Here are just a few reasons to try PRP:

  • It can help you avoid surgery.
  • It’s minimally invasive.
  • It offers a fast recovery time and quicker deep healing than surgery.
  • It’s less painful than surgery.

When the PRP arrives at the site of the injury, the platelets unleash the growth factors. These growth factors cause a regenerative inflammation around the area of the injury, spurring healing. (This is why you shouldn’t take anti-inflammatory medication after PRP injections.) The result is restored ligaments and tendons as well as stronger, more resilient cartilage – in other words, healing.

Most patients find that the procedure is not very painful, and they tolerate it well. However, it’s common for the inflammatory response to produce soreness after the injection. Expect soreness and swelling for at least the first 48 hours after your injection. We’ll give you pain medication to help alleviate any discomfort. You can also use heat packs or hot compresses to soothe the pain.

We usually tell patients to allow 2 hours for their treatment, which includes preparation and recovery time. We’ll perform the procedure safely at our state-of-the-art office. While the procedure will take some time out of your day, the time you’ll save from surgery, a long recovery, general anesthesia, or a hospital stay will more than makeup for it.
