Another Study Finds PRP Ineffective as Pattern Hair Loss Treatment

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has hit the headlines recently as a possible ‘wonder’ cure for multiple ailments including skin rejuvenation and hair loss.

But a new study has found that the technique in which a patient’s own blood is “enriched” before being re-injected into the body is not effective as a hair loss treatment.

According to health website Healio, the small scale trial involved 26 women with the genetic condition Female Pattern Hair Loss. Fifteen of them were assigned to treatment, with the remainder given a placebo.

The results showed that just 13.3 per cent of the patients who did receive the treatment (ie: two people) did see substantial improvements at the end of the 26 week study.
