Are you experiencing balding? Do you feel embarrassed and like there is no solution? Don’t worry; platelet-rich plasma may be the solution for you. The human scalp has 100,000 hair follicles, but their lifespan is not forever. The future is solution is right around the corner.

Platelet Rich Plasma

The big question for people with balding is, “how can I get my hair back?” The answer is not always an easy one. Doctors have always told people that there isn’t anything they can do. With continued research being revealed, the next big find could be right around the corner. 

The theory behind platelet-rich plasma is that new hair can grow instead of trying to regrow old hair. Cell therapy is the idea of using your cells so that the body doesn’t reject them, but they are new cells. 

Platelets are the main component of the blood. They contain red blood cells, white cells, and plasma. When you have a cut, platelets come to the rescue to help repair the area and create new skin cells. This is the same concept when trying to develop new hair. 

To be successful, there has to be five times the amount of platelets than normal blood. These platelets are going to promote growth and tissue regeneration. 

Gathering Platelet Rich Plasma

Once the platelets are injected deep into the scalp, the theory is the hair will begin to grow. You will have to have blood taken from your arm to start this process.

The blood is then placed into a centrifuge. The blood is spun at high speed to separate the blood and plasma from each other. 

Previous Hair Growth Solution

Before this new way of hair growth, if you were willing to spend a lot of money, you could get a hair transplant. This consisted of taking hair from your arms or back and move it onto your scalp.

A lot of doctors refused to do this because it does not produce good results. Many times the hair follicle does not take to the scalp, and it falls out. 

Treatment Plan

If you’re going to move forward with this plan, you will need to map out the next couple of months. You will need to make time at the beginning for three sessions. These sessions will need to be about a month apart. 

As a maintenance plan, you will need to have additional sessions every three to six months. This is going to ensure your results are going to last and keep the hair growing. 

This treatment is safe, but it is expensive. Some individuals have said that this treatment is painful, but it is proven to show promising results in male pattern balding. Of course, every company that offers this treatment is going to offer it at a different price. Some places start at $1,000 per session. 

There are currently many different ways the hair is harvested and placed. There needs to be more research completed to have a full write-up of pros and cons.
