It is quite an exciting time to be in involved in the field of Cosmetic Dermatology! New uses of existing treatments and procedures are constantly being invented. One of these new uses happens to involve Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy, or PRP. While originally its main purpose was to reverse joint degeneration, it has most recently been used to successfully reduce hair thinning and hair loss.
WebMD reached out to Dr. Jegasothy to discuss the science behind PRP’s effectiveness in treating hair loss. Dr. Jegasothy, who is also an Clinical Associate Professor of Dermatology at the University of Miami’s Miller school of Medicine, explains that the process of using Platelet-Rich Plasma in the scalp is the same as how your own body would heal any type of wound. She goes on to state that “platelets are the first cells that start the healing process” because “they contain growth factors that stimulate the creation of proteins which also work on the hair follicle to create fuller and healthier hair growth.”
As always, we would like to thank WebMD and Liesa Goins for featuring Dr. Jegasothy in their October 2018 issue!
