What are PRP INJECTIONS?
PRP Injections – Platelet-rich plasma PRP injections can be effective in treating pattern baldness, both in preventing hair loss and promoting new hair growth. It may also help restore hair growth. Doctors typically use this treatment when hair loss results from androgenetic alopecia, a common condition that causes hair follicles to shrink.
PRP can also aid in the stimulation of hair growth after hair transplants.
STEM CELLS – Mesenchymal stem cells, which have just recently become available, can be added to the plasma for an incredible boost in hair growth. In this situation, hair may be expected to grow approximately one month after a transplant, or 1-2 months after treatment of stem cells and plasma. In this case, usually, one treatment is sufficient, although a second may be necessary at the 6-12-month level.
Stem cell/plasma treatments are available at our Newport Hair Transplant Clinic.
