Dr. Cappuccino is proud to offer PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy for hair loss as an exciting new non-surgical therapeutic option for men and women who suffer from thinning hair.
Efficacy of PRP
PRP is a potential emerging non-surgical based therapy for natural hair follicle stimulation for thinning hair. Larger clinical studies are pending but the current medical literature contains numerous optimistic results. One recent study of 100 patients undergoing PRP hair restoration showed an increase in hair density of 30% at 3 months following treatment.
The life cycle of a hair follicle can last from 2-8 years and has 4 stages: anagen (growth phase), catagen (regression phase), telogen (resting phase), and exogen (shedding phase). New hair only grows in the anagen phase so it may take a few months to see new hair growth after your PRP treatment.
