Is PRP Effective for Hair Loss? Real Proofs + Insights

As beauticians at Plasma Therapy based in Phibsborough, we have seen a growing interest in Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy for hair loss treatment. PRP therapy has been gaining traction not only in the Ireland but globally as well. Many clients have approached us with concerns about their hair loss and have asked whether PRP is truly effective. In this article, we will delve into the subject, making sure to use language that is easy to understand while providing resources to show the efficacy of PRP therapy for hair loss.

How does PRP help with hair loss?

PRP works by stimulating the hair follicles, which can lead to increased hair growth and thickness. The growth factors and proteins found in PRP are known to promote cell regeneration, repair damaged tissue, and improve blood circulation. When injected into the scalp, these factors can stimulate the dormant hair follicles, encouraging them to enter the growth phase, and potentially reverse hair thinning and loss.

When injected into the scalp, these factors can stimulate the dormant hair follicles, encouraging them to enter the growth phase, and potentially reverse hair thinning and loss. The improved blood circulation at the site of the injection can bring more nutrients and oxygen to the hair follicles, supporting their growth and overall health. As a result, the hair shaft diameter increases, leading to thicker and stronger hair strands.

The effectiveness of PRP for hair loss

Numerous studies have been conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of PRP therapy for baldness, and the results have been largely positive. A study published in the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery (2014) found that PRP therapy led to a significant increase in hair density and thickness, as well as a reduction in hair loss, for patients with androgenetic alopecia (male and female pattern hair loss).

Another study, published in Stem Cell Investig from 2017, showed that PRP injections resulted in a significant increase in hair density and an improvement in overall hair quality, with no significant side effects. The study concluded that PRP therapy is a safe, effective, and promising treatment for hair loss. It also helps people struggling with alopecia.

In a systematic review published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology (2019), researchers analysed the results of multiple clinical trials on PRP therapy for hair loss. The review concluded that PRP therapy is a promising treatment for hair loss, particularly for patients with androgenetic alopecia, with minimal side effects and high patient satisfaction.

Aside – what is PRP?

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy involves using a patient’s own blood to promote healing and regeneration in various parts of the body. PRP is obtained by drawing a small amount of blood from the patient and then processing it in a centrifuge to separate the plasma, which contains a high concentration of platelets, growth factors, and other bioactive proteins. This platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the area of concern, such as the scalp, in the case of hair loss.

Can PRP be effective for sudden and chromatic hair loss?

We have seen firsthand the benefits of PRP for hair loss. Many of our clients have experienced significant improvements in hair density, thickness, and overall appearance after undergoing PRP treatments. Our clients have also reported high satisfaction with the treatment and minimal side effects.

However, it is essential to consult with a qualified professional before embarking on any hair loss treatment, as individual results may vary, and it is crucial to ensure that the treatment is appropriate for your specific needs.
