    TLDR PRP shows promise for hair loss treatment, with three initial monthly injections and maintenance every 3-6 months.
    This document is a review of the literature on the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for androgenetic alopecia (AGA), a common form of hair loss. PRP is a promising treatment for AGA, as it contains growth factors that can stimulate hair growth. Several studies have shown positive results, but more research is needed to determine the optimal concentration and frequency of PRP injections. The proposed treatment protocol involves three initial monthly injections followed by maintenance injections every 3-6 months. The authors suggest that PRP can be used alone or in combination with other hair loss treatments.
