Effective treatments for most hair loss include:
- Over the counter or Prescription medicine
- Hair transplant surgery
- Injections of Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) Hair restoration
PRP therapy for hair loss is a treatment in which a person’s blood is drawn typically from your arm, and then processed to separate out the platelet-rich plasma and injected back into your scalp. PRP contains growth factors that stimulate hair growth.
PRP therapy treatments typically take 4-6 months. The injection schedule will depend on the amount of hair loss as well as other factors like genetics, age, and hormones.
Much research shows that PRP is safe and effective for many people, however, there are categories that PRP therapy should not be administered. At PHDermatology, we can evaluate and educate you on the possibilities available. Our team of board-certified professionals will educate you on medication, scalp treatments, surgical or non-surgical procedures including PRP injections to set you on the path to reversing hair loss and stimulating new hair growth.
