What is the success rate of PRP, where they inject your scalp with your blood plasma to stimulate growth?

I recently watched a video where a Dr was injecting a patients scalp with his own plasma. What is the success rate of that procedure ?

Success rate for PRP or any other treatment depends on what you are treating and understanding that there is no 100% cure.

Success rate for PRP or any other treatment depends on what you are treating and understanding that there is no 100% cure.  In other words, you have to have a diagnosis before seeking treatment options.  There is no permanent cure for genetic hair loss.

Blood plasma

Plasma  injection success has been under investigation  for several years. The results can be unpredictable.

The success rate of PRP

The success rate of PRP depends largely on the cause of your hair loss and the system of PRP used. There at least 7+ types of PRP systems out there, and some work better than others for hair loss.  Using our system, the results of one woman is shown in the video (see the video).  PRP can be combined with other treatments for an even better result.


Best of luck from Manhattan.

Hair loss treatment

I appreciate your question.
PRP has good success depending on the reason and timing of the hair loss.
I have had it done myself

The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.

best of luck!
