Have you been struggling with hair loss for years? Have you done everything in your power to regrow it but failed? If so, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy might be the answer you've always been searching for.
More than 95 percent of men's hair loss is a result of Androgenetic Alopecia or male pattern baldness. By the age of 35, two thirds of American men will suffer from this condition. That number grows to 85 percent by the time these men hit the age of 50. While men headline most of the stories revolving around baldness, 40 percent of American women also experience hair loss.
PRP therapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive, speedy procedure that uses a person's own blood to regrow hair. Blood plasma contains growth factors that, when injected into the scalp, stimulates hair growth.
In one study, 20 patients took part in a randomized, evaluator-blinded, placebo-controlled, half-head group study to research whether PRP helped increase hair count. Half of the patients were a placebo group while the other half were given three treatments of PRP injections at 30-day intervals. Researchers followed patients for two years, and, upon the study's conclusion, noticed that patients who used PRP increased their amount of hairs by an average of roughly 33 percent in the target area. Hair density increased to roughly 46 hairs per cm(2). There were also no side effects during treatment which has always been one of PRP's biggest selling points.
If you're looking for a new way to treat hair loss and want to avoid painful surgery, ask your doctor about PRP therapy.
