Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy for Hair Loss- PRP Therapy

At Chesapeake Skin Solutions our medical providers have been performing PRP therapy as a proactive therapeutic option for male and female patients experiencing hair loss. PRP therapy is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions.

Recent scientific research and technology provides the medical community with new understandings of wound and tissue healing. As a result of these scientific studies, we recognize PRP is an all-natural medical procedure performed for scalp, skin, and hair stimulation.

Human blood contains stem cells and blood products that contain essential and specific growth factors that assist in tissue regeneration and healing. Published medical literature from the United States and Europe confirms the safety and use of PRP therapy. It has been used an adjunct therapy for over two decades for skin and wound healing. PRP therapy has 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 has been used extensively in these specialties for the last twenty years with generally positive outcomes and success. In the field of hair restoration, evidence supports PRP therapy as a promising treatment option to promote hair growth. At Chesapeake Skin Solutions, we have seen some great results in women and men who notice hair thinning, often restoring a more youthful look as soon as 4-6 weeks after the first treatment.  

Who is a candidate for PRP therapy?

  • PRP therapy will thicken existing hair and density in many women and men with androgenic alopecia. Androgenic alopecia is a genetic form of hair loss often seen in aging men and women, known as male or female pattern baldness.
  • Note that PRP will not regrow hair in completely bald areas of the scalp. We recommend a full work-up by your primary care provider prior to being treated with PRP therapy to rule out other sources of hair loss, including anemia and thyroid disorders.
  • PRP therapy is a great treatment for those who are not candidates yet for full hair transplant surgery or who do not want to have surgery. PRP therapy also may be preferred for patients who want more gradual results, versus a sudden change in appearance.

How is it performed?

Blood is drawn in our office as though you are having routine blood testing. The blood is spun in a centrifuge and the PRP is separated and removed from the rest of the blood. An application of numbing cream is applied to the scalp and we inject the PRP with a very small needle into areas where hair loss is present. No sedation or any medication is given during the procedure to inhibit the ability to drive or use machinery.

PRP contains many growth factors that stimulate the hair follicle’s growth. Some patients choose to have PRP performed every three to four months as early data suggests regular or semiannual PRP treatments may stimulate hair growth.
