Although platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been used for many years in other medical specialties, including orthopedics,  it has only recently become popular in hair clinics.  It is becoming more popular and may patients are asking for it for help with their hair loss disorders. PRP is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions.

Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP, is the latest treatment to hit the hair loss market and is showing impressive results.  Dr. Bishara uses this therapy in his office for his hair transplant patients.

While PRP is in the early stages of scientific research in hair restoration, PRP is not meant to replace current FDA approved therapies such as DHT blockers and Minoxidil. but it is a promising non-surgical therapeutic option for those patients with hair loss.

There are many points of agreement on PRP including the ideal candidate for PRP: Most agree that patients with thinning but not fully balding are the best candidates.  Most everyone also agrees that about 70%-90% of patients will see a degree of improvement of hair mass/density.  The time that it takes for patients to see improvement in their hair growth varied from 2-6 months.

Differences in approaches:  In Dr. Bishara's office, we customize each PRP treatment to each patients needs.  Blood is drawn in our office, and then the blood is spun in a centrifuge.   The PRP is separated and removed from the rest of the blood and then injected into the recipient site before implantation.  This plasma rich in platelets and growth factors is very useful in tissue regeneration and healing  Dr. Bishara does not bathe graphs in PRP before because it would increase metabolic demand in a low oxygen environment, which would kill the graft.

For more information on PRP please call our office at (817) 473-2120.  This would be explained more in detail during a hair transplants consultation in our office(s) located in Mansfield and Southlake.
