Platelet Rich Plasma for Hair Loss
It’s important to keep in mind that PRP can, and should, be a part of a multifaceted program to treat hair thinning and loss. Your physician may prescribe you other oral or topical medications as well.
When you see our board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Carley Fowler, she will first ask about the details of your hair loss and do a thorough examination of your scalp. If needed, bloodwork might be checked to rule out underlying conditions. In addition, in certain situations a scalp biopsy may be necessary.
Once Dr. Fowner has determined which type or types of hair loss you have, a tailored treatment plan will be made for you. This plan may include topical medications, oral medications, steroid injections, or platelet rich plasma therapy or PRP.
