Hair loss is incredibly common. In fact, one form of hair loss called androgenetic alopecia affects 30 million women and 50 million men in the United States.
Despite the prominence of hair loss, most people don’t know that there are effective hair restoration options that don’t require surgery. , Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments have demonstrated incredible efficacy in increasing the number of hairs and density in the treated area. Results may be maintained for an extended period and could even prevent further hair loss.

The Science Supports PRP for Hair Loss
PRP treatments have been extensively studied. One study, published in Stem Cells Translational Medicine, compared PRP application to placebo in participants with hair loss.
The researchers found PRP treatments to effectively combat hair loss by increasing both the number and density of hairs. The study also reported no side effects for its participants and found results to maintain for 12 months after the last treatment. Of the 20 participants who received hair loss treatment, at the 12-month mark, only four had reported hair loss, which was addressed with re-treatment.
How Does PRP Treatment Support Hair Growth?
Research indicates that PRP treatments likely support follicular health and create an environment of growth. The injected serum leads to various growth factor signals in the body, which promote increased blood flow and new cell growth, and establish natural hair follicle protection measures.
In essence, PRP treatments establish an environment that is conducive to both the growth of new hair and the maintenance of your current hair.
