Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been gaining popularity as a treatment option for hair loss. Women of all ages—especially those over 35—are increasingly turning to PRP treatments to help restore the look and feel of their hair. But what is PRP, exactly? And when should it be used for hair loss? Let’s explore.
Put simply, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a concentration of your own blood platelets that is injected into the scalp. The purpose of this injection is to promote hair growth by stimulating blood flow and healing in the area around the follicles. This can help boost the health and density of your existing hair, as well as promote new hair growth.
When Should I Use PRP for Hair Loss? The best candidates for PRP treatments are those who have started experiencing thinning or receding hairlines due to age-related or hereditary factors. For those with more severe cases of alopecia, or hair loss caused by medical conditions like autoimmune diseases, other treatments may be more effective. It’s important to note that while a single session can yield positive results, most individuals will require multiple sessions for optimal results. It takes about six months for newly regrown hairs to reach their full potential length and volume—so patience is key!
Additionally, regular maintenance sessions may be necessary to maintain your desired results over time. Your individual needs may vary depending on your specific condition, so it’s important to consult with a licensed specialist before beginning any treatment plan.
PRP treatments offer a safe and effective solution for those looking to address mild cases of age-related or hereditary hair loss in women over 35 years old. While one session can yield positive results, most individuals require multiple sessions—as well as regular maintenance visits—for optimal results. Before beginning any treatment plan, make sure you consult with an experienced provider who can guide you through the process and ensure you get the best outcome possible from your PRP treatment!
