PRP Hair Treatment for Androgenetic Alopecia
PRP or Platelet-Rich Plasma, is a safe, non-invasive treatment for androgenetic alopecia. It uses your own blood to harvest the platelet rich plasma which has many growth factors to stimulate hair regrowth.
Clinical studies have shown that PRP can promote hair growth by prolonging the growing phase of the hair cycle. During the PRP treatment, your blood is taken and spun in a centrifuge machine to separate out the platelets and plasma.
Using a microneedling device or injection gun (seen in video), the PRP is injected into the scalp. It takes a minimum of 3 months post treatment to see a visible improvement to your hair loss.

Hormones – hormones like abnormal levels of androgens can cause hair loss
Autoimmune disease – a misguided immune system can cause alopecia areata
Stress – a traumatic event or chronic stress can cause sudden hair loss called telogen effluvium
Drugs – drugs like chemotherapy can cause your hair to fall out, called anagen effluvium
Diet and nutrition – an imbalanced diet poor in protein or deficiencies in certain vitamins and minerals can cause hair loss
Cosmetic procedures – beaching, straightening, dyeing, over shampooing, all can cause hair loss
Medical conditions – lupus, thyroid disease, eating disorders, anemia, and other medical conditions can cause hair loss
Illness, injury and childbirth – illness like ringworm caused by a fungal infection and pregnancy can cause hair loss
Mental disorder – trichotillomania is a hair pulling disorder which is an irresistible urge to pull out your own hair

Referral to a medical specialist
A trichologist may refer you to another medical specialist to help diagnose the problem. Sometimes blood work is required to help determine if there are deficiencies or imbalances in your daily nutritional intake. A scalp biopsy is may be needed to confirm the presence of alopecia conditions like cicatricial alopecia. Other times an endocrinologist is referred to diagnose thyroid and hormonal imbalance that may be causing the hair loss. If hair loss was due to a traumatic event or stress, or caused by habitual pulling of the hair, then a psychologist may also be referred.
