Platelet Rich Plasma Injections to Treat Hair Loss (like Alopecia)
There is new evidence showing the effectiveness of PRP Therapy as a non-surgical medical procedure to treat hair loss and thinning hair. Charles E. Crutchfield III M.D. has seen significant results in patients seeking treatment for hair loss.
How PRP Works
Using the patient’s own blood, we create a concentration of Platelet Rich Plasma to promote hair growth and rejuvenation. Charles E. Crutchfield III M.D. explains the treatment and its benefits: “PRP therapy uses the patient’s blood to create the ideal formula of Platelet Rich Plasma. We start by drawing a blood sample and spinning the blood to separate its components: red blood cells, plasma, and platelet rich plasma. Injecting the enriched platelet rich plasma, rich in cytokines and growth factors, into the treatment area stimulates the inactive hair follicles into an active growth phase.”
Years of Hair Loss Treament Experience
Dr. Crutchfield has years of experience treating hair loss (alopecia) with success. He is excited about new developments that have made platelet rich plasma therapy a viable option in treating Alopecia.
“When the platelet rich plasma is introduced into the area of hair loss, the cytokines and growth factors in the platelet rich plasma (PRP) initiate a series of physiologic events that promotes healthy and natural hair growth. This PRP treatment for androgenetic hair loss results in a reactivation of the body’s normal hair growth cycle. The results have been nothing short of remarkable.”
