    TLDR PRP injections improve hair density and thickness in women with hair loss.
    A 5-year-old study found that autologous activated platelet-rich plasma injection improved hair density and thickness in women with female pattern hair loss. The study involved 30 female participants and was randomized and placebo-controlled. The PRP injections were found to be safe and effective, with no major side effects reported. The treatment can be considered a low-cost and minimally invasive alternative for women who cannot take oral medication for hair loss. However, more research is needed to determine its efficacy and safety compared to existing treatments.
