PRP treatment for hair loss | Dr Benouaiche


The treatment of hair loss with platelet-rich plasma is non-invasive and biocompatible. It is also free from the risk of rejection since the injected product comes from the patient’s own body.

PRP is indicated to treat temporary hair loss or early-stage baldness.

Why do we lose hair?

Several factors can contribute to hair loss. Heredity, stress, poor diet, the use of aggressive hair products and especially hormones. Our hair mass gradually seems thinner and more sparse. Baldness is quite frequent for men and women and it quickly leads to complexes and a lack of self-confidence.

PRP boosts hair regrowth

Considered as a drug as it requires a marketing authorization, platelet-rich plasma is based on 2 compounds naturally present in the human body: the blood cells called platelets and the plasma. These cells are particularly rich in growth factors. When applied to the hair follicle, they’ll regenerate the hair and boost its regrowth.

How does this treatment work?

The PRP-based hair loss treatment is a non-invasive and biocompatible technique, and it’s reject-free as the injected compound comes from one’s own body. It does not require the use of any medication or chemical products, and the procedure is non-surgical and very simple.

After the first session, patients can notice a decrease in hair loss. The final result looks natural.

Procedure for a PRP session

When the patient arrives at the clinic, I take a blood sample which I then place in a centrifuge to retrieve the platelet-rich plasma. After administering a local anesthesia, I inject the plasma at several points with a single use microneedle. I focus on areas where hair loss is most pronounced.

Following the procedure, the patient can experience a slight inflammatory reaction (possible swelling and redness for a few hours), but they can resume their work or activities right away.

Platelet-rich plasma makes it possible to improve our appearance using our own body. PRP is non-invasive and biocompatible. There is no risk of rejection, because the injected product directly comes from the patient’s body. To obtain the product, the doctor takes a blood sample and centrifuges it to extract the plasma. Then they reinject it.This treatment is recommended as an alternative to medicines like Minoxidil, and it does not have the same side effects. It is approved by the FDA and got its marketing authorization.After the first session, the patient can notice a visible decrease in hair loss and between sessions 2 and 3, their hair can regrow and become denser.

Indications and contraindications of PRP hair treatment

PRP is indicated to treat temporary hair loss or early stage baldness. If the patient has undergone a hair transplant, this technique can accelerate regrowth, as transplanted grafts tend to have slower growth, especially in women. Within a few weeks, a naturally denser head of hair can be observed.
