Mesotherapy with PRP for hair loss is a three-step medical treatment in which a person’s blood is drawn, processed, and then injected into the scalp. PRP injections trigger natural hair growth and maintain it by increasing blood supply to the hair follicle and increasing the thickness of the hair shaft. Sometimes this approach is combined with other hair loss procedures or medications.
PRP is a non-surgical therapy in the treatment of hair loss. Highly concentrated growth factors in the form of platelets have been shown to stimulate new hair growth, thicken thinned out hair, and make hair transplants grow thicker and healthier.
Researchers are able to regrow hair in balding patients with a series of injections known as Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (PRP). In the case of hair loss, the injected platelets prompt inactive or newly implanted hair follicles to enter an active growth phase, causing the hair to start growing again.
PRP therapy involves drawing a person’s own blood and putting it into a centrifuge that separates red blood cells from the plasma. The plasma, which contains growth factors, is then injected back into the person.
When PRP therapy is used for hair loss treatment, the plasma is injected into the person’s hair follicles. It involves only minimal discomfort and can take about 10 minutes after the treatment.
After the first treatment, people have injections monthly for three months, then once every three to six months. Within a few months of treatment, they can notice less hair loss. Soon after, they may experience an increase in thickness and regrowth.
Studies have found that people with hereditary hair loss or male or female pattern baldness can potentially curb or even regrow some hair after PRP injections.
PRP therapy has worked well for the most common type of hair loss, which is known as androgenetic alopecia or male pattern baldness.
PRP requires maintenance treatment, and it’s extremely safe and natural because it uses your own blood
PRP is best for people who have mild to moderate hair thinning. It won’t regrow a full head of hair if you’re already bald. If that's your case, you might need hair transplant first to consider PRP treatment.
