PRP involves drawing the blood from your arm and spinning it down in a centrifuge (which separates the blood components and helps plasms rise to the top). Your own PRP is collected and then injected into multiple areas or hair loss across your scalp. Most research on PRP for hair loss has focused on its use to treat androgenetic alopecia (AGA, also known as hormone-related baldness). The results are most noticeable after at least six months. Repeat treatments may be necessary to maintain the improvement in hair growth and texture. Through research it has been found that PRP works best in conjunction with other medical therapies. Please consult with Dr. Patel to see what treatment program is most appropriate for you.
