PRP works well on all cases, some better than others.  It is most effective for miniaturized hairs.  

Its efficacy depends on the amount used, the techniques used, the activation of platelets in the PRP, and whether autologous platelet concentrates are also used in conjunction.

PRP treatment increasing hair density

Platelet Rich Plasma injections will definitely increase the density of your hair along with thickening your hair if done correctly by an expert.

Does PRP increase hair density?

Thank you for your question. PRP has been shown to increase the density of the hair and stimulate existing hair follicles in both men and woman. I would recommend an in person exam with an expert to determine what is causing your hair loss as well as the best solutions based on individual need. Best wishes.

PRP and hair density; ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS NJ

Hair density is a combination of the diameter of the hair shaft as well as the hair count in a specific area. PRP will usually increase the diameter of the hair shaft anywhere from 30 to 80%. The hair count  is another issue. For most people that have dormant hair for less than 5 years, hair regrowth is possible. With hair regrowth as well as increase fiber diameter, the density greatly increases. If either one of the two factors improves, the hair density will also improve. Hope this helps. Good luck.
