Can PRP Help Women Regrow Receding Hair?

Written by Dr. Griffin

For those who are suffering from thinning hair, there is an effective non-surgical hair loss treatment for women. Our Philadelphia area-based team at Griffin Hair Restoration Center provides platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy as an innovative treatment option for those looking to improve their hairline and combat hair loss.

PRP therapy uses a patient’s own plasma—which is derived from the blood and naturally rich in platelets and growth factors—to stimulate hair growth and improve hair density. In recent years, PRP therapy has become an increasingly popular option for anyone looking for a natural, non-surgical solution for hair loss.

One of the primary ways PRP therapy can improve your hair is by stimulating new hair growth through injections of your own blood’s components. The growth factors and platelets in PRP therapy promote the health of hair follicles and encourage improvement in the quality of hair. The PRP itself provides plenty of growth factors for hair follicles, which can result in fuller, denser hair, improve the appearance of your hair, and make you look and feel younger.

In addition to stimulating hair growth, PRP therapy can also help to improve the thickness and texture of your existing hair. The growth factors in PRP therapy can strengthen hair follicles, increase the size of existing hair shafts, and reduce hair breakage. This can result in healthier, more vibrant hair that is less prone to hair loss. It may take several treatments to optimize results, and maintenance treatments are recommended several times a year. 

There are also other fixes and longer-lasting options to improve your hairline that you may want to consider. These can be done on their own or in combination with PRP to optimize results. You can conceal a receding hairline with root touch-up powder or spray, part your hair differently to disguise hair loss, try to avoid friction or pulling on your hair during styling or blow-drying it, or look into specialty shampoos, medications, supplements, or a surgical hair transplant.
