Did You Know? PRP is only as efficacious as the youth of the patient! Most adults receiving these treatments are forty and older, and blood drawn from that age group may not have rich enough concentrations of platelets to be fully effective for restoring your hair through PRP injection therapy.

A lower level of blood platelets may mean that PRP isn't as effective for you. Aside from treating male pattern baldness, there isn't a ton of research on PRP for hair growth, and it isn't entirely conclusive. So why all the hype? It's thought that PRP contains proteins that serve several main functions that are thought to help hair regrow. But unfortunately, that theory only applies to younger patients that have a higher concentration rich platelets in their blood.
