Eleven patients suffering from hair loss due to androgenic alopecia and not responding to 6 months treatment with minoxidil and finasteride were included in this study. The hair pull test was performed before every treatment session.
A total volume of cc PRP was injected in the scalp by using an insulin syringe. The treatment was repeated every two weeks, for a total of four times. A significant reduction in hair loss was observed between first and fourth injection.
Hair count increased from average number of 71 hair follicular units to 93 hair follicular units.
Therefore, average mean gain is After the fourth session, the pull test was negative in 9 patients. PRP injection is a simple, cost effective and feasible treatment option for androgenic alopecia, with high overall patient satisfaction.
Platelet-rich plasma PRP is an autologous preparation of platelets in concentrated plasma. Written informed consent was obtained.
Exclusion criteria were haematological disorders, thyroid dysfunction, malnutrition and other dermatological disorders contributing to hair loss.Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein derived from whole blood, centrifuged to remove red blood cells.
It has a greater concentration of growth factors than whole blood, and has been used to encourage a brisk healing response across several specialties.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an autologous concentration of human platelets contained in a small volume of plasma characterized by haemostatic and tissue repairing effects. Tissue repairing effects and being enriched by various kind of growth factors, has made them the focus of attention for different procedures.
The overall purpose of this thesis was to evaluate the effectiveness of platelet rich plasma (PRP) as a treatment for musculoskeletal pathologies. PRP was introduced in the late ’s in the oral.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is defined as a portion of the plasma fraction of autologous blood having a platelet concentration above baseline [1,2].PRP also has been referred to as platelet-enriched plasma, platelet-rich concentrate, autologous platelet gel, and platelet releasate .Platelet releasates have been used to treat wounds since .
