PRP Injections for Hair Loss What You Need to Know

Platelet rich plasma is a natural therapy that uses the healing and regenerative properties of platelets to induce tissue repair and new tissue regeneration of the area surrounding the hair bulb. It promotes blood supply to the hair bulb and follicles resulting in stronger hairs and new growth. A small sample of your blood is taken and centrifuged to concentrate the platelets and this is then injected through a thin needle into the skin of the scalp. As the product is prepared from your own blood, there is no risk of allergic reactions or infections.

What is PRP treatment?

PRP consists of platelets, which are a type of blood cell that slow bleeding helps to heal, and plasma, which is the liquid part of the blood. Platelet-rich plasma is blood with a higher concentration of platelets than normal. Platelets help to form blood clots which help with healing, and they are also capable of causing cell reproduction, stimulating tissue regeneration in a targeted area.

How the Procedure Is Done

PRP injections are done in three steps:

To carry out the therapy, your own blood is drawn, likely from your arm.That blood is then placed into a centrifuge to spin down into three layers: plasma rich in platelets, platelet-poor plasma, and red blood cells. The PRP will be used, and the rest will be tossed.

That PRP or “blood injection” is then injected into your scalp with a syringe after a local anesthetic has been applied.

The advantages of PRP treatment include:

  1. Safety –Since the patient’s own blood is used to formulate the PRP and is then injected into the scalp the chances of allergies and other inadvertent reactions are minimal.
  2. Minimal chances of infection –A specific amount of white blood cells (known as natural defenders against infections) make up the portion of PRP which eliminates the chances of infections.
  3. No surgery, no downtime –patient goes out walking from the clinic within half an hour and can get back instantly to normal routine.
  4. Minimal pain –the procedure is well tolerated by most patients and done under local anaesthesia.
  5. Quick results –the results are seen from the 1st sessions onward. The hair fall stalls, the quality and texture of the hair improves and eventually with subsequent sessions new hair growth is evident.
  6. What are the plasma and platelets in PRP hair regrowth treatment?


    Simply put, platelets are the band aid of our body. As soon as you get cut or have wound the first thing that reaches the site are the platelets. Their job is to promote healing and stop the bleeding. When injected in the scalp, the rick concentrated doses of platelets repair the damaged follicles and speed up the healing.


    PRP injections can benefit a wider range of people than you may have initially thought. These plasma injections are platelet rich and can potentially help the following groups:

    • Both men and women. Male balding and hair thinning is talked about extensively, but women do not often get the same benefit of widespread information. The fact is that women can lose hair, too, due to several different factors.
    • Those suffering from androgenic alopecia or other forms of alopecia. This is also known as male/female pattern baldness.
    • Those suffering from hair loss due to high stress levels. Since this condition is not chronic, it can be treated rather easily.
    • Those who have recently experienced hair loss. The more recent the hair loss occurred, the better your chances are of fixing it before it is too late for PRP injections.
    • Those with thinning or balding hair, but not completely bald people. PRP injections are meant to thicken, strengthen, and grow hair from follicles that are still functioning, however weakly this may seem.
