Young Men Are Turning to PRP for Hair Loss

One of the things that we use platelets (PRP) for quite routinely is for helping to thicken the hair on the scalp. I often get young men coming into the office here that are saying that their hair is thinning and perhaps their dad or their grandfather was bald at an early age.

It’s not too early to get started with some treatments of PRP to help preserve the hair on your scalp.

The way the platelets work is they stimulate any dormant hair follicles to wake up and start producing hair. This can have the benefit of increasing the hair density by as much as 25%, which is really quite noticeable. If we can get ahead of the hair loss then you can help to keep a nice, thick head of hair for a substantial period of time.

The benefits from a round of platelets (PRP) lasts for about 18 to 24 months, so you might think of having a top up every couple of years to maintain the hair growth and help to stay ahead of the hair loss. This is a very effective way at improving the thickness and quality of your hair.

If you would like to have a discussion with us about having a treatment of PRP for hair loss, please give the office a call at 250-717-3200
