My dermatologists prescribed a PRP treatment for my hair loss, does PRP work for hair loss in men?


First of all, I would like to appreciate you that you consulted a dermatologist for your hair loss problem. as your dermatologists have prescribed you a PRP treatment may be along with some medications like minoxidil or finasteride, you might be suffering from the androgenic alopecia.

To answer your question is a straightforward ” YES, IT DOES WORK FOR HAIR LOSS IN MEN.” but to answer your question I need to go in bit details.

PRP is a minimally invasive, completely autologous and natural day care procedure performed by a dermatologist in their clinic for hair loss. it has other utilities in skin rejuvenation and joint problems, neurosurgery, oral surgery too.

In PRP your own blood is taken and centrifuged to separate plasma from blood cell this plasma contains various growth factors mentioned below which have different functionalities which in synchronization causes hair growth and prevents hair loss

  1. Platelet-derived growth factor: help in skin formation and new blood vessel formation and cell replication.
  2. TGF-B: promotes matrix between cells
  3. VEGF: promotes blood vessel formation.
  4. IGF: maintains the normal physiological cycle of all type of cells

In androgenic alopecia DHT hormone act on your hair follicle and dermal papilla to accelerate its normal cycle causing more hair loss than more maturation, on the other hand, PRP stops that as it has various growth factors.

There are not many numbers of studies conducted on this but it seems to be very effective at HairMD India, Pune. But it alone doesn’t work it should be coupled with other treatments like Mesotherapy, medicinal therapy.

We at HairMD Pune provide comprehensive treatment for hair loss in men in Pune which we call as cocktail management of hair loss.

If you have any further doubts then I request you to book a consultation at HairMD Pune.

Male Hair Loss

There are many reasons for hair loss in male ranging from genetics or family history of hair loss, daily or work life stress etc. Hair loss may be genetic or non-genetic. The following section briefs you about few top causes of hair loss and treatment for it.

The most important type of hair loss in males is male pattern baldness or Androgenetic Alopecia. Almost 70% to 80 % of males suffer from male pattern baldness. The main causes of hair loss in men are usually changing in eating habits or crash dieting, change in environment or stress induced due to work or personal reasons. HairMD- hair loss clinic in Pune, provides our patients with proven hair loss treatment which are based on 28+ years of successful clinical experience Dr Dhananjay Chavan, MBBS, DDV & proven medical research. The mainstay of treatment for male pattern hair loss is finasteride and minoxidil. Finasteride blocks the hormones i.e. 5 alpha reductase in the body which are responsible for hair loss. Minoxidil increases blood flow to the scalp and promotes hair growth in bald patches or spots. Apart from finasteride and minoxidil various procedures like platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP), mesotherapy, micro-needling (derma roller), low-level laser light therapy (LLLT) are some of the ways to treat hair loss.

In PRP for hair loss, concentrated growth factors are extracted from the blood of the patient and then transferred back to the scalp of the patient. In micro-needling (derma roller for hair loss treatment) thousands of micro punctures are created in patient’s scalp with the help of derma roller. These micro punctures result in the release of intrinsic growth factors at that site stimulate hair growth.

In low-level laser light therapy (LLLT), light from a cold laser (red laser waves) is delivered to the hair, this laser light stimulates the hair follicles for faster growth. This treatment is US FDA approved for hair loss problem. In mesotherapy growth peptides, plane stem cell extract and various other growth factors are delivered locally to our hair. All these treatment procedures along with medicine are responsible for the great results. We are able to give to our patients suffering from hair loss.
