PRP treatments now offer a non-surgical option to fight balding. PRP uses your own blood to stimulate hair growth. It also thickens your existing hair. PRP promotes hair growth when follicles are present. People with extreme hair loss or non-existent follicles do not generally benefit from this treatment.
The growth factors play the role of the messengers signaling skin cells to function. Growth factors can help invigorate the activity of the hair follicles and stimulate new hair growth. The use of PRP for hair loss is a great treatment option because scientific articles show its efficacy increasing hair count, hair thickness and the growth phase of the hair follicle.
Anyone experiencing hair loss is essentially a good candidate but those with early hair loss tend to respond best. For best results consistency is key. Treatments are typically performed once a month for the first three to four months and then every three to six months thereafter depending on the individual response. Following this protocol, results can first be seen within 2 to 3 months. Receiving treatments every 3-6 months on a long-term basis are optimal for continuing to stimulate the growth factors and stem cell associated with regrowth.
PRP treatments are not an easy or quick fix but they are medically and scientifically backed options for those struggling to find a solution for their hair loss.
