Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy: A Promising Approach to Androgenetic Alopecia

Hair loss, particularly androgenetic alopecia (AGA), can be a significant concern for many men and women. It can impact confidence and self-esteem.

While hair loss is a natural part of aging, fortunately, advancements in hair restoration techniques offer new possibilities.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy has emerged as a promising, minimally invasive approach to address hair thinning and promote regrowth in individuals with AGA.

Understanding Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA)

AGA, also known as male pattern baldness or female pattern hair loss, is the most common form of hair loss. It’s characterised by a gradual thinning of hair on the scalp, often starting at the temples and crown. This happens due to a combination of genetic predisposition and the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT shrinks hair follicles, shortening the growth phase and leading to finer, thinner hairs.

What is PRP Therapy?

PRP therapy leverages the body’s natural healing potential using concentrated platelets from your own blood. Platelets are rich in growth factors, proteins that play a crucial role in tissue regeneration and cellular repair. In PRP therapy for hair loss, a small amount of blood is drawn and processed to isolate a high concentration of platelets. This platelet-rich plasma is then injected directly into the scalp, targeting areas of thinning hair.

How Does PRP Therapy Work for Androgenetic Alopecia?

The injected platelets release growth factors at the injection site. These growth factors stimulate existing hair follicles, promoting:

  • Increased blood supply to the scalp
  • Enhanced hair follicle growth
  • Prolongation of the hair growth phase
  • Thicker, healthier hair growth

Benefits of PRP Therapy for AGA

PRP therapy offers several advantages for individuals seeking to address hair loss:

  • Minimally invasive: Unlike hair transplant surgery, PRP therapy is a non-surgical procedure with minimal discomfort.
  • Natural approach: PRP utilises your own body’s healing elements, minimising the risk of allergic reactions.
  • Safe and effective: Studies have shown promising results for hair regrowth and improved hair density with PRP therapy.
  • Outpatient procedure: PRP therapy can be performed in a doctor’s office, requiring minimal downtime.
  • Faster recovery: Compared to hair transplant surgery, PRP therapy offers a quicker recovery time.

Who is a Candidate for PRP Therapy?

PRP therapy is generally suitable for men and women experiencing early to moderate stages of AGA. It’s important to consult with a qualified hair restoration specialist to determine if PRP is the right option for you. Factors like your overall health, the severity of hair loss, and your individual goals will be considered.

What to Expect During PRP Therapy

A typical PRP therapy session involves the following steps:

  1. Blood Draw: A small amount of blood is drawn from your arm.
  2. Platelet-Rich Plasma Preparation: The blood undergoes a centrifugation process to separate and concentrate the platelets.
  3. Scalp Anesthesia: A topical anesthetic may be applied to numb the scalp for increased comfort during injection.
  4. PRP Injection: The concentrated platelet-rich plasma is injected into targeted areas of the scalp.

Results of PRP Therapy

While results can vary depending on individual factors, patients typically see a gradual improvement in hair density and thickness within 3-6 months of treatment. Multiple PRP sessions may be recommended for optimal results.
