What Is PRP and How Can It Be Used to Restore Hair?

Hair loss and thinning affects many men and women, typically in the later adult years. Sometimes it is male pattern baldness, while other times alopecia may be linked to health conditions. Whatever the reason, men and women of the Danvers, MA community who are struggling with the thickness and presence of their hair are welcome to book a consultation visit with Dr. Anna Petropoulos to discuss solutions such as PRP therapy.

Understanding how PRP therapy works in hair restoration

PRP stands for Platelet-rich plasma. Plasma is already present in each patient’s blood and can be extracted by removing samples of blood and placing them in a centrifuge. This is a specialized device that spins and separates the elements of blood to extract the platelet-rich plasma. The PRP extracted is then administered into the scalp of the patient to help in stimulating hair follicle growth. Dr. Anna Petropoulos and her patients have seen amazing results with PRP therapy, and she continues to tout the benefits to those who are interested in hair restoration without surgical hair transplants.

Are the results of PRP therapy permanent?

When patients undergo PRP therapy, they will notice an improved thickness in their hair as it is restored. With continued treatments, the results of the hair restoration will become more noticeable—and permanent. Patients can also combine PRP therapy with topical products for improved results or shampoo their hair with medication intended to stimulate hair restoration.

What other options are available to patients for treating hair loss?
