Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. In this way, PRP injections use each individual patient’s own healing system to improve musculoskeletal problems.
PRP has also been demonstrated to improve function and reduce pain in people who have tendonitis or chronic tendinosis conditions such as tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow.
Some of the key advantages of PRP injections are that they can reduce the need for anti-inflammatories or stronger medications like opioids. In addition, the side effects of PRP injections are very limited because, since the injections are created from your own blood, your body will not reject or react negatively to them.

This platelet rich plasma is then injected into the scalp in areas of hair thinning.
Can PRP treatments be combined with other treatments for hair thinning and hair loss?

PRP is not recommended for advanced hair loss or hair loss associated with scarring. You should also not have PRP injections if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have a platelet or blood disorder or are taking immunosuppressive medications such as corticosteroids, or biologic medications.
