The science and research into PRP for hair regrowth
Some in the medical community think that PRP injections trigger natural hair growth and maintain it by increasing blood supply to the hair follicle and increasing the thickness of the hair shaft. This approach is often combined with other hair loss procedures or medications.
The internet has a frustrating lack regarding proof of the results of the effectiveness of PRP for hair growth. We advise you Google (other search engines are available) and research this hair loss treatment to fully understand its value. Currently there hasn’t been enough research to prove if PRP is an effective hair loss treatment. However, PRP therapy has been in use since the 1980s. It has shown positive results for problems such as healing injured tendons, ligaments, and muscles.
