Hair Loss Treatments

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) as a Stand-Alone Treatment for Hair Loss?

Question:

Has PRP been used at times other than at the time of hair restoration surgery to treat crown hair loss? Is that even possible?

Answer:

Yes, we use Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and ACell without surgical hair restoration to try and thicken hair.

The degree of improvement will depend on whether the patient is on Propecia (finasteride), how much miniaturizing hair there is, and individual variation.
