Hair loss has various reasons for both women and men. Understanding what prevents your body from absorbing the nutrients it needs to grow healthy hair is essential.
It could be a result of an emotional, lifestyle or medical event. The pandemic and Covid triggered overwhelming stress on the body, and one of the fallouts (pardon the pun) was the hair loss.
Postpartum and menopause hormonal changes for women increase hair loss, and diet changes may also contribute to hair loss. It can affect all races, ethnicities, skin types, and hair textures.
For men and women who suffer from hair loss, platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP therapy) is an all-natural solution that could help you increase the growth and density of your hair. It is a relatively simple procedure with minimal side effects that do not involve transplants and other procedures that can be complicated and painful.
How it works
The plasma in your blood contains growth factors that initiate healing and stimulate collagen production. PRP injections for hair loss work by injecting regenerative plasma made from platelets derived from your own blood into the scalp to promote hair growth and thickness. Platelets are small cells vital to trigger tissue repair, cell renewal, and collagen production by releasing growth factors and cytokines into the scalp and increasing the blood supply for hair follicles.
A study from 2019 suggests that the effectiveness of PRP therapy may rely on the number of blood platelets in a given sample.
In the procedure, you take a small blood sample, spin it in a centrifuge to separate the plasma, and re-inject it to targeted areas. There is no risk of allergy reactions since you are using your body’s own platelet-rich plasma.
Benefits of PRP injections for Hair Loss
Safe for almost everyone
No one can tell you’re undergoing therapy
Addresses the root cause of your issues
Peace of mind and completely natural because it’s all your own hair that’s growing.
Zero downtime and no incisions
For the most part, there are no real risks with PRP. Just a little patience, as there are no instant results but seeing new hair growth will be worth it! After a few weeks, you’ll see a change in your hair texture and thickness. After a few months, you’ll experience new growth, which is pretty amazing!
Treatment for PRP Injections
For the best results, it is recommended you have a series of four to six treatments to see results, and you’ll be able to celebrate new hair growth for about 18 to 24 months. Because PRP is not permanent, touch-up treatments are recommended once a year.
