hair loss treatmentPlatelet Rich Plasma Stimulates Hair Growth

It’s been dubbed “the vampire cure for baldness” – PRP therapy has hit the headlines this week after results of scientific trials proved the potential of platelet rich plasma in stimulating hair growth.

PRP treatment involves use of a highly purified and concentrated version of the patient’s own blood, injected back to release natural healing powers and stimulate new cells below the skin.

The treatment has applications from effective anti-ageing treatment and sports therapy to hair loss.

The latest study on a group of volunteers with hair loss showed significant hair regrowth on bald spots in the group having plasma injections compared to placebo.

Nina Goad, of the British Association of Dermatologists, said:

‘Alopecia is known to lead to overwhelming effects on the patient’s quality of life and self-esteem. This could offer hope to thousands.’
