PRP treatment for hair loss is a 3-step process. PRP therapy requires 3 treatments four to six weeks apart. Maintenance treatments are needed every four to six months. 

The following are the 3 steps of the PRP procedure- 

1st Step 

Blood is drawn from your arm and is put into a centrifuge. A centrifuge is a machine that spins rapidly to separate fluids of various densities.

After ten minutes, you will notice that the blood in the centrifuge separates into 3 layers which are as follows-

  • Platelet-rich plasma
  • Platelet-poor plasma
  • Red blood cells

3rd Step

This is the last and the Final Step. In this Step, the platelet-rich plasma is drawn up into a syringe. It is then injected into regions of the scalp that require increased growth of hair.

• In a 2017 study, fifty men with androgenic alopecia (male pattern hair loss) took part in a trial to see if PRP treatments were effective. A PRP injection was given to them on the left side of their scalps. They were solely injected with saline on the right side. According to the results, the hair on the left side thickened, and new hair began to develop.

• 10 males with androgenic alopecia were tested in a 2015 study. These males received PRP injections for 3 months, and the results demonstrate that towards the end of the trial, they had denser, thicker hair with stronger roots.
