How PRP Helps With Hair Loss

As medical and aesthetic innovations have advanced, men and women have more options than ever before to deal with thinning hair. But none deliver proven results naturally with no side effects quite like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for hair loss.

At Zarreii Medical and Aesthetics in Delray Beach, Florida, Peymon Zarreii, MD, and our team offer PRP treatment to give people access to this groundbreaking, safe way to meet their goals. We often use it for skin rejuvenation and injury healing, but today, let’s focus on its ability to help you regrow a head of thick hair — naturally. 

What PRP is and how it works

PRP is a solution Dr. Zarreii derives by taking a very small sample of your own blood. He then places that sample in a centrifuge, separating the platelets from the other components of your blood. The resulting platelet-rich plasma is an effective tool for triggering regeneration in your body. 

This is due to the power of platelets. Naturally, your body directs platelets to any injury sites. These platelets come to the rescue when you get hurt, helping your blood clot, and delivering growth factors. These proteins signal to your cells to start the healing process while supplying them with what they need to do so.

So, there’s a reason top-tier athletes have turned to PRP to accelerate the healing of sports injuries. But PRP isn’t just for orthopedic injuries and skin rejuvenation. It’s also effective for hair regeneration

PRP for a head of healthy hair

Once Dr. Zarreii has your PRP, he can inject it into targeted locations on your scalp. There’s no downtime with this treatment. 

As the PRP goes to work, it helps to increase blood supply in your hair follicles and thicken your hair shafts. The growth factors in the PRP signal to your hair follicles, encouraging them to produce new shafts of healthy, thick hair.

Those growth factors work on both follicles that are producing thinning hair and those that have fallen dormant entirely. 

To give you the best head of hair possible, Dr. Zarreii usually recommends a series of PRP treatments, each spaced weeks or months apart, depending on what’s right for your scalp and your hair goals. 

Over time, as the PRP supports your hair follicles and rejuvenates your scalp, you regain the ability to grow a full head of hair. And because the PRP comes from your own blood, your risk for side effects is minimal. 

If you’ve ever wanted a way to get your hair back that’s safe, natural, and extremely effective, contact our team at Zarreii Medical and Aesthetics to learn more about PRP for hair loss. Call our office or schedule your hair regeneration consultation online today.
