What is Platelet-Rich Plasma PRP?
Platelet-Rich Plasma is defined as a high concentration of platelets in a small volume of plasma, having as a measure 1,000,000 platelets per microliter of blood. It means at least 2 times the natural concentration of blood.
The PRP is derived from the bloodstream. For many years, this treatment has been used for years to musculoskeletal conditions, and more recently, skin conditions.
Colloquially termed “vampire treatments», the Platelet-Rich Plasma injected into the skin or used after micro needling. This is a technique that uses small needles to make microscopic skin wounds, and it may help to improve the skin texture and appearance.
Nowadays, the PRP has garnered some attention and popularity because it looks as a promising solution for one of the most challenging problems in dermatology: hair loss.
What’s the connection between platelets and the health hair growth?
Platelet-Rich Plasma has a very suggestive name. Platelets, with red and white blood cells, and plasma are the four main components of blood. Platelets promote cell growth and regeneration. Platelets generally have a concentration five times higher in PRP than in normal blood. This concentration is very useful in terms of hair growth, because platelets secrete growth factors, and this is thought to greatly assist in the wound healing process as well as tissue regeneration.
The theory is that platelets should be injected deep into the scalp so that it reaches the bottom of the hair follicle. In this way, platelets will be able to stimulate a specific population of cells, called «dermal papilla cells», which have a critical role in healthy hair growth.
It works with all the types of hair loss?
Most research on the effects of PRP on hair loss has focused on its use in the treatment of Androgenetic Alopecia, also known as AGA, which can affect both men and women.
Men with AGA often have hair loss at the top and front, while in women thinning hair occurs at the top and the crown of the head, usually starting in the center. hair related. PRP is effective in this type of hair loss, but works best when combined with other treatments, such as topical minoxidil or oral finasteride.
Furthermore, there is insufficient evidence to conclude about the effectiveness of PRP in other types of hair loss, such as stress-related (telogen effluvium), hair loss without scarring, related to autoimmunity, called alopecia areata, or forms of scarring hair loss.
