PRP Treatment For Hair Loss
Androgenetic alopecia (AGA) generically known as male or female pattern hair loss is a very common disorder and can be improved via natural biological cell means in platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment. Two recent studies here looked into the effect of platelet rich plasma (PRP) the treatment of hair loss.
Out of these two studies, the first clinical trial in 2021 looked at the Effects of Lower vs Higher Cell Number of Platelet-Rich Plasma on Hair Density and Diameter in Androgenetic Alopecia (male and female pattern hair loss). A Randomised, Double-Blinded, Placebo, Parallel-Group Half-Scalp IRB-Approved Study.
The aim of this study was to compare safety, efficacy, and satisfaction following treatment with a lower or higher number of platelets over 6 months. This was a randomised, double-blinded, placebo, scalp IRB-approved study with moderate hair loss. Participants received intradermal PRP injections according to 2 treatment protocols (high vs low platelet numbers) to the frontal and crown portions. Phototrichoscans were recorded at start and at 6 months, and global photography and subject and investigator satisfaction questionnaires were obtained at baseline, 3, and 6 months.
At the end of 6-month, both groups demonstrated absolute increases in total hair density, follicle diameter, and terminal hair density, as well as absolute and percentage changes at the frontal and crown targeted sites. It was apparent that the best success rates were seen in individuals treated with a higher platelet concentration. This study further concluded that injections with 2 therapeutic quantities of platelets were equally safe and efficacious for treating men and women with hair loss related androgenetic alopecia. Higher numbers of platelets may have a greater effect than lower numbers of platelets in regard to hair density, follicle diameter, and terminal hair density.
The second analysis study was: Platelet-Rich Plasma Monotherapies for Androgenetic Alopecia: A Network Meta-Analysis and Meta-Regression Study (September 2022), which look to assess and analyse 25 different previous studies. They concluded that for the majority, rankings and relative effects support that the efficacy of PRP administration increases when: (i) the number of sessions increases and (ii) the time interval between sessions decreases. The authors of the study found that chemically-activated PRP (vs inactivated), double centrifugation (vs single), younger (vs older) age of treated patients, female (vs male) sex, and whole-head (vs split-scalp) administration is associated with improved PRP efficacy.
