Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a type of regenerative therapy that draws upon the natural healing power of your body. PRP therapy is gaining immense popularity in various fields of medicine, including orthopedic medicine, sports medicine, and dermatology.
In today’s world, PRP therapy is one of the most popular approaches to treating hair thinning, hair fall, and receding hairline. PRP therapy is a safe treatment for hair loss and offers minimal to no side effects.
If you’re considering PRP therapy for hair loss, you may be wondering whether this therapy is effective for hair loss or not. Let’s talk about the efficacy of PRP therapy for hair loss and where you can go for comprehensive hair treatment in Melbourne, FL.
PRP Therapy: An Effective Solution for Hair Loss and Hair Thinning
If you’re having hair fall, especially male pattern baldness, PRP therapy can do wonders for you. Research has also found that PRP therapy not only prevents hair fall but also promotes new hair growth. PRP therapy, when injected into your scalp, reaches the bottom of your hair follicles, revitalizes them, and thereby stimulates the growth of new hairs from dormant hair follicles.
The growth factors found in PRP therapy also lengthen the hair growth cycle. This means that your hair will spend more time in the hair growth and resting phases, than the shedding phase and will remain intact for a longer period of time.
A randomized clinical trial has also shown that PRP therapy, when combined with Minoxidil can help regrow hair in patients suffering from androgenetic alopecia (pattern baldness). The patients in the study received three treatment cycles and were followed for two years. Researchers also documented an improvement in hair density compared to the baseline.
Another study has also found that people who received PRP treatment noticed 30% more hair growth in the thinning area after just four PRP sessions.
It’s important to mention here that, in some cases, multiple sessions of PRP therapy are needed to see visible results. This is because the hair follicles that have been dormant for quite some time may be more difficult to activate and therefore need multiple sessions to show the result.
