If you are suffering from hair loss or notice your hair thinning, you may feel like you have tried everything, only to find that hair loss treatments don’t work for you. And frequently, if they do work, the results are short-lived or less than impressive.

What if we told you that there is a cutting-edge injectable treatment for hair loss that works beyond the scalp to re-grow your own hair naturally? Platelet-rich plasma therapy is that treatment, and we are here to show you just how impressive PRP for hair loss can be.

About Hair Loss

Androgenic alopecia, the form of hair loss more well known as “male pattern baldness,” is a common condition that impacts millions of men across the world.

To fully grasp the latest treatment options, it’s helpful to understand what drives male pattern baldness.


This condition largely stems from genetic predispositions. If hair loss runs in your family, you might be more prone to experiencing it.


The hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a derivative of testosterone, is closely linked to male pattern baldness. It has the potential to shorten the hair growth lifecycle and reduce the number of hair follicles, resulting in finer and shorter hairs and eventually leading to baldness.


Male pattern baldness can start in the teenage years but is more prevalent as men age. By the age of 50, about half of all men will show some signs of hair loss.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

PRP therapy is a process where a small sample of your blood is taken, processed with a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets, and then re-injected into the scalp. This solution is incredibly beneficial, containing bioactive molecules and growth factors that have regenerative properties, help promote healing, and restore tissues within the body.

Platelet-Rich Plasma is being used in regenerative medicine for a variety of applications. This includes treatment for wound healing and chronic joint pain to skin rejuvenation, just to name a few. In the scalp, PRP can stimulate dormant hair follicles and enhance hair growth.

This minimally invasive treatment has shown promising outcomes in reducing hair loss and promoting the regrowth of hair. The best results have been shown in those with thinning hair or who are exhibiting the early symptoms of male and female pattern baldness.

PRP vs. Topical Hair Loss Treatments

Topical medications for hair loss have been the go-to for many years. However, these treatments must be maintained over time with frequent long-term use. Some patients experience side effects such as dry or itchy scalp.

PRP stimulates your body’s natural restorative mechanisms. Although maintenance is still required with PRP therapy, results are better and last longer than topical treatments.

PRP vs. Hair Transplant

Hair transplant surgery involves removing donor skin and hair follicles from one area and transplanting them to the treatment area. Comparatively speaking, this surgical procedure is more invasive and carries more risks, a potential for scars, more recovery time, and a higher cost. In addition, not everyone is a candidate for hair transplant surgery.

PRP is potentially an excellent option for patients who may not be compatible with surgery or for those who want a chance for significant hair regrowth without such an invasive procedure.
