Does PRP Hair Restoration Work?

PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) therapy has gained popularity in recent years as a treatment for various medical conditions, including hair loss. At Florida Medical Pain Management, PRP hair restoration is offered as a non-surgical solution to help patients regrow hair naturally. But does PRP hair restoration really work? Let’s delve into the science behind it and explore its effectiveness.

What is  PRP Hair Restoration

PRP therapy involves using the patient’s own blood to extract platelet-rich plasma, which is then injected into the scalp. Platelets are rich in growth factors and proteins that promote tissue repair, cell growth, and collagen production. When injected into the scalp, PRP is believed to stimulate hair follicles, improve blood circulation to the hair roots, and prolong the growth phase of the hair cycle.

Scientific Evidence and Research

Numerous studies have explored the efficacy of PRP therapy for hair restoration, albeit results can vary. A systematic review published in the  Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology analyzed several clinical trials and found that PRP injections significantly improved hair density and thickness in patients with androgenetic alopecia, a common type of hair loss. The review suggested that PRP can be a promising treatment option for hair regrowth.

Another study published in the Dermatologic Surgery journal concluded that PRP injections were effective in promoting hair growth in patients with male and female pattern hair loss, attributing the improvement to increased hair density and diameter after treatment.

How PRP Works for Hair Restoration

PRP works by stimulating dormant or weakened hair follicles, triggering them to enter an active growth phase. The growth factors present in PRP promote angiogenesis (formation of new blood vessels), reduce inflammation in the scalp, and enhance the survival of hair follicles. This process can lead to thicker, healthier hair over time with repeated sessions of PRP therapy.

What to Expect During Treatment

During a PRP hair restoration session at Florida Medical Pain Management, the process typically involves several steps:

  1. Blood Collection: A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient, usually from the arm.


  1. Centrifugation: The blood is then placed in a centrifuge machine to separate the platelet-rich plasma from other blood components.


  1. Injection: The concentrated PRP is carefully injected into the areas of the scalp experiencing hair thinning or loss. Local anesthesia may be used to minimize discomfort during the procedure.


  1. Post-Treatment Care: Patients are usually advised to avoid washing their hair for a day or two after the treatment and to avoid vigorous activity that may increase scalp sweating.

Results and Timeline

Patients undergoing PRP hair restoration may start noticing initial results within a few months of treatment. However, optimal results often require multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart. The exact number of sessions needed can vary depending on the severity of hair loss and individual response to treatment.

Benefits of PRP Hair Restoration

  • Non-surgical: PRP therapy is non-invasive and does not require downtime, making it a convenient option for individuals with busy lifestyles.
  • Natural Results: Since PRP uses the patient’s own blood, there is minimal risk of allergic reactions or rejection.
  • Complementary Therapy: PRP can be used in conjunction with other hair restoration treatments for enhanced results.

Considerations and Potential Side Effects

While PRP therapy is generally considered safe, like any medical procedure, it may carry some risks and side effects. These can include temporary mild pain or swelling at the injection site, minimal bleeding, or infection. However, serious complications are rare when performed by experienced professionals.
