PRP to reverse hair loss
Androgenetic alopecia (AGA) or ‘male-pattern baldness’ is a common form of hair loss affecting up to 50% of men by age 50 and nearly 50% of women (female-pattern hair loss) over the course of their lifetime.
The causes for hair loss are complex, and review by a GP or Dermatologist to exclude metabolic causes is the best first step. Once nutritional deficiencies and metabolic function have been checked, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has been proven by numerous high level research studies to reverse hair loss and improve hair number and overall skin and hair health. PRP involves collection of a small volume of the patient’s blood, processing of the blood at the time of the procedure at the patient’s side to collect a high concentration of platelets in aa small volume of plasma (platelet rich plasma), and then injection of the PRP into the patient’s scalp where hair rejuvenation is needed using superfine needles.
The basic science behind PRP injections is that the patient’s own platelets deliver an abundance of growth factors to the skin on the scalp to stimulate hair regrowth. PRP therapy has shown remarkable beneficial effects with no major adverse reactions or harmful side effects, and is considered to be a very safe medical procedure.
Not all PRP hair rejuvenation protocols provide the same patient outcomes though. Choose an Alocuro PRP medical practitioner for the latest PRP technology and best chance of reversing your hair loss.
