Platetet Rich Plasma and Regrowth of Hair

Thinning and loss of hair is very distressing for women. Hormonal balancing treatments, especially with anti-androgen treatments are often the solution to stop hair loss. But one of the issues when hair loss is stopped is how to replace the hairs that are lost. Hair restoration by the use of platelet rich plasma (PRP) is the newest and some would say the most dramatic treatment for regrowing one's own hair. In the New York Times on April 16th the technology of treating the scalp with the PRP for women is highlighted as an extremely effective treatment for women. PRP injections into the scalp is a treatment that actually involves the use of your own blood plasma. The plasma with the platelets is prepared by extraction from the red blood cell component and then concentrated to release growth factors. the Arteriocyte Magellan PRP machine is the leading PRP company on the market as ti provides the highest concentration of growth factors. Treatments with products that do not concentrate enough growth factors are less likely to produce successful results. For women with hair loss it is important to evaluate causes of treatable hair loss. Hair loss on the crown has been shown to respond the best to the PRP treatment. PRP can be combined with other therapies for hair loss. PRP has been successful for the treatment of other medical conditions, although not covered by most insurance companies, it would typically qualify for coverage under medical savings plans.
