Revitalize Your Hair with PRP Treatment – Safe and Effective Solution

Trichology Centre Toronto


Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a proven method for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia. Hair Loss patients have benefited with this in-clinic PRP for hair loss therapy.  Androgenic alopecia, also known as Male Pattern Hair Loss (MPHL) and Female Pattern Hair Loss (FPHL) are common, chronic hair loss disorder affecting both men and women. Androgenic alopecia is characterized by progressive hair loss and affects up to 80% of men and 40% of women.

PRP is an autologous preparation of platelets in concentrated plasma using your own blood.  The current methods by which PRP is prepared report 300-700% enrichment, with platelet concentrations consequently increasing to more than 1,000,000 platelets/L.

Clinics began using PRP in dermatology after researchers found that high concentrations of platelets in plasma cells can promote hair growth by prolonging the growing phase of the hair cycle. In the PRP hair treatment procedure, your blood is harvested and spun in a centrifuge machine to separate out the platelets and plasma. Using a micro needling device, the hair loss area is applied with the plasma and massaged into the scalp. The tiny holes created with the micro needling device easily absorbs the serum into the skin.  It usually takes minimum of 3 months to see a visible improvement to your hair loss.  Over time, most clients, both male and female, can expect to see a 25% to 40% increase in hair that they have lost.  PRP for hair loss works best if your alopecia occurred within 5 years or so.  It is more challenging to wake up hair follicles that have been dormant for a long time.

In a recent study, a significant reduction in hair loss was observed between first and fourth treatments. Hair count increased from average number of 71 hair follicular units to 93 hair follicular units. Therefore, average mean gain is 22.09 follicular units per cm2.

Both men and women suffering from androgenic alopecia can be good candidates for PRP injection.  It is a very safe procedure and effective therapy for hair loss.  However, if you have underlying health issues, such as lupus or thyroid disease, then PRP is not recommended.  Patients taking blood thinners should also avoid PRP.

Our hair loss patients were pleasantly surprised that the treatment was not painful. The initial blood work may be unpleasant to some, but the PRP treatment is applied topically using a micro needling device and massaged into the scalp.  There is no down time post treatment, and patients can return to their regular scheduled day afterwards.  The whole procedure takes approximately 45 minutes for the blood work, centrifugation, and micro needling.

Doctors and medical professionals across various fields frequently utilize PRP therapy as a common treatment for hair loss. PRP therapy is commonly used in these fields, short for Platelet-rich plasma therapy. This treatment plan involves using the person’s blood, which is drawn through a routine blood test and then processed to increase the concentration of platelets and growth factors, such as platelet-derived and vascular endothelial growth factors.

The process involves several steps, including blood draws, PRP injections, and sessions promoting cell growth and wound healing. The main reasons for using PRP therapy in hair restoration are to repair inactive hair follicles, reverse hair loss, and encourage new hair growth for optimal results. PRP therapy has shown to be effective for male patients with male pattern baldness or people suffering from alopecia areata.

The high concentration of platelets and growth factors in PRP therapy has additional benefits beyond hair regrowth, including wound healing and increased blood supply. Board-certified dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and nurses are part of the team delivering PRP therapies. The use of PRP in sports medicine is also gaining popularity due to the relationship between PRP and the healing process.

However, it is important to note that PRP therapy may not be a stand-alone treatment for hair loss, and prescription medications and other hair loss treatments may help to achieve the best results. As with any medical treatment, there may be some mild side effects. Discuss PRP therapy with a medical professional to determine if it is the right solution for your hair loss and self-image.

Platelet-rich plasma for androgenetic alopecia: A review of the literature and proposed treatment protocol

Androgenic alopecia (AGA) is a hair loss condition that results from both genetic and hormonal factors, leading to progressive thinning of scalp hair in a patterned manner. AGA affects 45% of men and 35% of women by the age of 60. The current FDA-approved treatments for AGA include oral finasteride and topical minoxidil.

However, due to the limited number of effective therapies for AGA, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has become a popular alternative treatment. Platelet-rich plasma is a plasma that has a high concentration of platelets that contains growth factors, which stimulate hair regeneration.

The growth factors in platelets act on stem cells in the hair follicles, promoting the development of new follicles and neovascularization. PRP has shown to be a promising treatment option for AGA, but standard protocols for PRP preparation and administration, as well as methods to evaluate results, are yet to be established.

This literature review aims to evaluate the effectiveness of PRP for AGA and discuss the various treatment protocols proposed.
