In this article, we will explain what PRP therapy is, how it works, the benefits you could experience over time, and the results of past cases.

You may be feeling apprehensive about pursuing PRP therapy for hair loss. The after effects have not been discussed as thoroughly as they probably should be on mainstream sites because the procedure is relatively new.

It is understandable that you feel a little nervous, but PRP therapy to promote hair regrowth has produced positive results in the past, and you should consider giving it a try!

The PRP Procedure

PRP stands for “platelet-rich plasma.” The procedure consists of drawing your own blood, usually from your arm, spinning it down into three layers in a centrifuge, and injecting only the best plasma rich in platelets into your scalp through micro needling. If you can get routine blood tests done by your doctor and you are immunized regularly, PRP treatment won’t be too different from what you are already used to.

How PRP Therapy Works

The platelet-rich plasma that is injected into your scalp works to heal affected areas and stimulate reparative cells through the use of growth factors. Growth factors promote the formation of substances like collagen, which is also used in anti-aging serums. This, in turn, will likely show signs of the regrow of your hair. It’s an all-natural formula, so you don’t have to worry about harsh chemicals.

The Benefits of PRP Therapy Over Time

The PRP procedure comes in more than one dose. It is a series of injections carried out over a period of weeks and redone over several months, so you will begin to see changes as you progress through the treatment. What you may notice are as follows:

Though this may all sound too good to be true, you had better start believing it! The results have indicated that PRP therapy could, in fact, achieve everything it states. Let’s go over some of those cases to ease your worries.

PRP Case Studies

PRP therapy is a fairly new hair loss remedy on the market. However, it has a long history of case studies and trials that have been proven to produce beneficial results from those suffering from this hair loss issue. Here are a few examples and what they may mean for PRP patients in the future.


As you can see, several trials have proven that it is very likely that PRP treatments can help you regrow stronger and thicker hair. This successful trend is on the rise, and we at Coastal Medical and Cosmetic Dermatology are very excited about it!

Who do these treatments work best for, though?
