While bald looks good on Dwayne Johnson and Michael Jordan, it’s not the look every man wants. Most male-pattern baldness historically has been viewed as a symptom of getting older without much opportunity to reverse it. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), however, is a relatively new approach, and there is scientific evidence to suggest that it can promote hair growth.
For hair loss, PRP is injected into the patient’s scalp, helping to stimulate the hair follicle to aid in hair regrowth with minimal discomfort. The treatment course consists of multiple treatments over a 6 month period with the potential for a booster treatment yearly. Typically improvement can be seen after the first treatment and can continue to improve throughout the course of therapy. The overall effects can last for more than a year. Talk to the doctors at Windsor Dermatology about how platelet-rich plasma therapy might be right for you.
