Why Does Platelet-Rich Plasma Hair Growth Treatment Work?

Platelet Rich Plasma Hair Restoration: An OverView To How PRP Can Help ReGrow Hair.

At NovaGenix, we’ve been providing patients PRP therapy as
a proactive therapeutic option for men and women experiencing hair loss. PRP is
an exciting non-surgical hair restoration option for patients who need
stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions.

Recent scientific studies within the medical
community and advancements in technology have provided medical professionals
with new understandings of wound and tissue healing. Because of this recent
scientific research, we can recognize PRP as an all-natural autologous medical
procedure conducted by physicians offices and clinics for hair stimulation as
well as that of the scalp and skin. The results have been amazing and both men
and women in the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s are seeing results that they never
imagined possible.
Contained within the human blood is
mesenchymal stem cells, and autologous blood products which has essential and
specific growth factors that assist in tissue regeneration and healing. Medical
literature and published studies from both Europe and the United States confirm
the overall safety and effectiveness of PRP therapy. PRP has been used as a
medial adjunct therapy for over twenty years for skin and wound healing. It’s
established itself to be effective as a medical treatment modality in the
specialty fields of oral surgery, neurosurgery, plastic and cosmetic surgery,
sports medicine and orthopedics. It’s been used extensively in these
specialties for the last twenty years with universally positive success rates
and outcomes. For PRP use in hair restoration, evidence has supported the
therapy as a very promising treatment option for the promotion of hair growth.
It should be noted that PRP is in the initial stages of scientific research in
hair restoration, and not meant to replace current FDA approved, however it is
a promising non-surgical therapeutic option for those patients with hair loss
and has shown some amazing results thus far.
Blood is drawn in our office the same way as
when you’re getting routine blood work at your primary care provider. The blood
is then spun in a high-speed centrifuge and the Platelet Rich Plasma is
separated into a high concentration. The PRP is then separated and removed from
the rest of the blood sample. In PRP, the platelets are concentrated to 3X
their normal blood values. The system eliminates granulocytes which are cells
that impede in the process of tissue regeneration and wound healing. The highly
concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP) is then injected into the scalp. The
patient feels no pain during the injections due to a local anesthesia being
utilized on the scalp. Afterwards, the patient’s hair is cleaned and the
patient can drive home with no side effects. PRP contains several growth
factors which stimulate hair follicle growth. PRP can be used preoperatively,
intraoperatively, or post operatively. Many patients have chosen to have PRP
performed every three (3) to four (4) months as early data suggests regular or
semiannual PRP treatments that may stimulate hair growth.

Platelets which are contained in the PRP, are
what scientists believe to theoretically cause growth of the hair follicles
through the stimulation of stem cells and other cells within the
microenvironment of the hair follicles. These cells promote healing, and often
accelerates the rate and total degree of tissue healing and regeneration,
response to injury, and the formation of new growth on a cellular level. The
primary purpose of using PRP in hair restoration is to stimulate inactive or
newly implanted hair follicles into an active growth phase.
Inside the Platelets there’s several
intracellular structures like glycogen, lysosomes and alpha granules. These
granules within the PRP contain clotting and growth factors that are eventually
released during the healing and repair process.

  •          Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF)—promotes blood vessel growth, cell
    replication, skin formation;
  •         Transforming Growth-Factor-Beta (TGF-b)—promotes growth of matrix between
    cells, bone metabolism;
  •         Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)—promotes blood vessel formation;
  •         Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)—promotes cell growth and
    differentiation, blood vessel formation, collagen formation;
  •         Fibroblast Growth Factor-2 (FGF-2)—promotes growth of specialized cells
    and blood vessel formation; 
  •      Insulin Like Growth Factor – (IGF)—a regulator of normal physiology in
    nearly every type of cell in the body

At the end of the day, PRP for hair
restoration offers the best chance for hair growth for patients who aren’t good
candidates for surgery or those men and women who want a more aggressive
nonsurgical approach to treatment for their hair loss. If you need hair
stimulation, NovaGenix will be able to meet your needs. Results will sometimes
vary from patient to patients, but thus far, PRP has been shown to offer a real
solution and hope to men who wish to restore their hair and youthful

  1. PRP Therapy is followed by the extraction of the patient’s blood, usually from the arm area. The blood is made to undergo centrifugation which results in the platelet-rich blood being separated from the platelet poor blood. This platelet-rich blood has excellent hair growth inducing properties and is injected into the affected area. Satyam Hair Transplant Centre is a successful clinic for providing PRP therapy in Ludhiana.

  2. It is not good to see tens of hairs go every single day because abnormal hair loss can result in baldness. The hair care experts often suggest platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment if a person is suffering from extreme hair loss.
    If you lose around 100 or more than 100 hairs every day, you should be concerned about the future of your head. Take action timely and retain the maximum number of hair.
