    July 2023 in “Aesthetic Plastic Surgery
    TLDR More research is needed to confirm if Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is effective for treating hair loss.
    The systematic review titled "Platelet-Rich Plasma for Treating Androgenic Alopecia" discusses the use of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) in treating androgenic alopecia. PRP contains growth factors that promote tissue repair, and a meta-analysis was conducted comparing PRP treatment to a control group. However, the authors express concerns about the lack of standardized protocols and specific details about PRP preparation. Factors such as platelet counts, leukocyte concentration, and the use of activated or non-activated platelets can affect treatment outcomes. The authors conclude that further analysis is needed to establish more reliable conclusions about the effectiveness of PRP for androgenic alopecia.
