Is PRP Recommended After an FUE Hair Transplant
1. Does PRP work when used to treat hair loss in men and women?
In male pattern baldness, I don't think using PRP has any logic, as it does nothing to prevent the cause. In some female hair loss situations it may have some benefits however scientific studies are limited and data are difficult to quantify.
2. Does PRP enhance hair growth at the recipient and healing at the donor area in FUE?
There are no clear scientific data proving this. I don't think PRP with hair transplant is much more than a marketing tool and a way to make extra money for hair clinics.
Patients have to decide on one thing:
Do they want a treatment that their doctor thinks may be beneficial, but no visible effect when done on most people. Or do they want a treatment that has proven effect in numerous studies and the effect can be clearly seen on most patients that it has been used on.
PRP and hair loss - does it help?
It reviewed results of 64 patients treated with PRP. Overall, about 40 % had significant results. The main issue with PRP in the world at the present time is there is no standard protocol. The concentration of platelets, the method of PRP activation, volume injected all seem to matter. There's little doubt that different clinics will get different results. The field is evolving, but there is little doubt to the benefits of PRP.
