How Does PRP Work?
PRP is a very promising non-surgical treatment option for patients suffering with hair loss. PRP Therapy works on the basis of restoring growth factors within the blood. Human blood contains mesenchymal stem cells and autologous blood products that contain essential and specific growth factors that assist in tissue regeneration and healing. Once the scalp tissue is regenerated, the hair follicles are able to produce the necessary hair growth and in some cases the hair will grow back darker and thicker than before.
In terms of the safety of this product, PRP has been the topic of medical literature form both the United States and Europe. Not only is the product heralded as a revolutionary way to stimulate and restore hair growth, but it is also one safest cosmetic hair growth options on the market today. While there is a prevalent opinion of PRP and its benefits within medical literature, you should also keep in mind that publications within literature do not mean that the product has gained FDA approval.
PRP has been used for over 20 years for skin and wound healing. Doctors have been getting positive and successful outcomes in the areas of oral surgery, neurosurgery, plastic and cosmetic surgery, sports medicine and orthopedics. PRP is in it’s early stages of scientific research and subsequent FDA approval for hair restoration. It is not meant to replace the current FDA approved options such as DHT blockers (example: Propecia) and Minoxidil.
