Hair Loss Treatment
PRP Therapy for Hair Loss
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are gaining popularity for a variety of conditions, including the treatment of hair loss. The treatment uses a patient’s own blood cells to accelerate healing in a specific area.
PRP injections can be effective in treating male pattern baldness, both in preventing hair loss and promoting new hair growth. PRP can also aid in the stimulation of hair growth after hair transplants. A PRP injection is a low-risk procedure and does not usually cause major side effects.
Exosome Therapy for Hair Loss
Exosome therapy is a safe and effective way to restore hair follicles. It also helps to prevent hair loss or thinning hair. It uses the same concept of using growth factors to produce collagen growth that PRP uses. The main difference, however, is that these growth factors are not derived from the patient’s own blood; they are lab derived. The serum, which includes growth factors, messenger RNA, micro RNA, and cytokines contains a higher concentration of growth factors and proves very successful for many patients. Additionally, because Exosomes are lab derived, it does not have debris of unnecessary ingredients in the serum that patient-extracted PRP serums will have. With these unnecessary ingredients, the body has to clear them. For this reason, many consider Exosome therapy to be one step above PRP therapy as it can provide more effective results.
As with PRP therapy, there is not much downtime necessary for this procedure, which makes it a great choice for many men and women.
