Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a method of hair loss prevention or hair loss treatment that uses the patient’s own blood cells to stabilize hair loss and preserve hair follicles. This unique and innovative treatment is non-surgical, highly personalized, and one of the most effective options available for hair loss prevention.

Many patients recovering from injuries have found the treatment to be very effective at speeding their healing process. The same process that helps injuries heal faster can also help prevent and treat certain types of hair loss.

Who Should Get Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy?

Platelet rich plasma therapy is an excellent option for hair loss prevention. If you know, based on your family tree, that you are highly likely to start losing your hair, you may want to consider platelet rich plasma therapy. If you are experiencing hair loss due to stress, poor diet, extreme weight loss, hormone imbalances, PRP may be a good option for you as well.

PRP therapy can also treat diffuse thinning of the hair and certain types of alopecia – sudden hair loss that starts with one or more circular patches.
