What are the success rates of PRP hair growth treatment?

by Michael Willian Medical
Hair loss problems are often common among both males and females. Around 40% of the men population and 30-35% of women have to face hair loss problems. It becomes more common when reaching 50 years. Stress is one of the major symptoms causing hair loss or thinning of hair.

Today, there are numerous ways to treat hair loss conditions with varying levels of reliability and success. Some of them are artificial ways, and some of them are based on much more solid science than others.

One of these treatments that provides an almost 100% success rate is platelet-rich plasma (PRP). There will be a question arising in your mind that what is PRP? It is your blood drawn from your body and treated in labs make it rich in plasma and then injected back into your body. In the case of hair loss treatment, it is injected into your scalp that helps in healing bodily tissues, inducing follicles from which your hair grows.

PRP is extracted from blood using a centrifuge mechanism that helps to increase the concentration of specific proteins, which further promotes healing by separating other substances from the blood.

In this following article, we are going to discuss the success rate that PRP offers for hair loss treatment and side effects if there are any, so let us get into it:

Does PRP work efficiently for hair loss?

The short answer here is yes! The science claims that PRP can help regrow your hair or preserve the hair that you have. Here are some of of the promising results from the research on PRP that it works for hair loss:

A 2014 study through a trusted source of some people with androgenic alopecia found that injecting 2 to 3 cubic centimeters of PRP into the scalp for the next two weeks for three months prompts the average number of follicles from 68 to 89 units. Well, this study on PRP and hair loss is too small to be conclusive, but it shows that PRP can help in the increase of hair follicles, which further supports healthy hair.

A 2015 study on a trusted source of ten individuals having PRP shorts inti their scalp for every 2 to 3 wheels for three months showed improvements in the number of hair follicles, the thickness of those hairs, as well as the strength of the hair roots. Well, this study was pretty convincing and extra support to the findings of other PRP and hair loss studies. Yet, a group of 10 individuals is still too small as a sample size to be conclusive. More research and case-study need to support PRP work efficiently for hair loss problems.


Then finally, a 2019 study compares two groups of people using different hair treatments for six months. One group of twenty used minoxidil (Rogaine), and another twenty using PRP shorts. At the end of the experiment, the result was pretty convincing that PRP performed much better over the use of Rogaine for hair loss treatment. Also, the study concludes that your level of platelets can affect how well your own plasma works for hair loss. PRP hair growth specialist concludes that a lower level of blood platelets may result in less effective PRP treatment.  The best PRP for men and women only occurs if the blood platelets are rich with plasma. There are tones of the experiment which provides positive results in the hair loss treatment. There are numerous clinics of PRP for female hair loss in California to help regain the strength and the density of the hair like before.

Is PRP hair treatment a permanent solution?

Well, it takes a few visits for the first round of the treatment to see the initial results. Once the results start appearing, you will still need to have touch-ups at least twice a year to maintain the new hair growth.
