Alopecia impacts millions of people. From hair loss on your head to your eyebrows and arms, alopecia can affect any part of the body. Treating the genetic disease, which mostly begins during childhood, hasn’t always been easy. While hair loss cannot be cured, several treatment options that can help. Which is the best on the market? Platelet-Rich Plasma hair restoration.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) hair restoration treatment is a simple treatment that improves hair density without surgery or any side effects. A simple injection of your platelets into the scalp is all it takes.
PRP helps increase hair density, as it:
Platelets contain healing growth factors that signal your tissue to regenerate and multiply. With PRP, your platelets and stem cells work to reverse the shrinking of the hair follicle. Then, they trigger the dormant hair back into the growth stage.
No. PRP is a simple procedure that only takes 20-30 minutes. Collecting the platelets only takes 10-15 minutes, and the PRP treatment itself is even faster. The treatment takes as little as 3-5 minutes.

Most physicians who perform PRP treatments utilize anesthetic solutions to minimize discomfort. However, there may be some sensitivity. If you’re worried about the potential discomfort, talk about the options with your doctor.
This procedure is different from other hair loss treatments because it is non-surgical, with little to no side effects. Medications and other options often come with harmful side effects. Alternatively, surgical options can be expensive and don’t treat the underlying issue.
Luckily, there is no downtime or recovery period. You can even take a warm shower the same evening of your treatment. However, it is advised to avoid any harsh chemicals or dyes for at least 48 hours.
