What if I am Completely Bald? Can Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatments Help?


Today we’re talking about platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments for hair loss. What about if you’re completely bald? The results we can expect in about 60 to 80 percent of our patients is an improvement in the density of the hair by about 25 percent.

If a person has been completely bald, however, we’re not going to completely regrow a full head of hair. It would be looking relatively sparse.

The platelet-rich plasma treatment is much more suitable for early stages of hair thinning rather than complete baldness. What makes a difference is for how long the hair has been missing. If it’s been missing for 20 years, it’s not very likely that we’re going to be waking up the hair follicles. Whereas if your hair has been thinning for just two or three years, that’s the time that we could intervene and hope for a reasonably successful outcome.
