Mens Journal PRP Hair Treatment Case Study Features Dr. Green
Mens Journal talks PRP for Hair Loss with Dr. Green in the article titled “PRP for Hair Loss: How Your Own Plasma Can Help Regrow Thinning Hair” – where Adam Hurly writes about what he did for his hair as it started thinning in his late 20’s and 30’s.
He notes that to keep his hair, he wanted to treat it as it was thinning since “once a follicle stops growing hair, you only have a year or less to restore it before it’s totally dried up and irreversible.”
Dr. Michele Green recommended Adam try an approach that combined the use of Finasteride and Minoxidil with three rounds of PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatment. He talks about how the PRP treatments felt and discusses the process with Dr. Green, who mentions that “PRP contains special cells called platelets, which can theoretically cause growth of the hair follicles by stimulating the stem cells and other cells around the hair follicle. This platelet-rich plasma promotes healing, accelerates the rate and degree of tissue healing and regeneration, and promotes new cellular growth. It stimulates the hair follicles to grow and cause both the growth of new hair and the thickening of existing hairs.” In short, it does the work of both finasteride and minoxidil, or bolsters their efforts.
Are you a candidate for PRP?
Yes, if you have early-onset hair loss and want to prevent future hair loss. If you’re already bald or are hoping to treat an area that has no hair follicles, then PRP is not going to help your cause. PRP can only restore and strengthen active follicles.
