    TLDR Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) shows promise in skin and hair treatments but results vary with preparation methods.
    Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a treatment derived from a patient's own blood that promotes wound healing, angiogenesis, and rejuvenation of skin and hair follicles. It has been used to treat various skin conditions, including scars, stretch marks, and chronic ulcers, and has shown promise in skin rejuvenation and the treatment of conditions like melasma and vitiligo. In trichology, PRP has been effective in treating androgenetic alopecia (AGA), with studies showing significant improvements in hair density, hair count, terminal hair density, hair shedding, and hair diameter. PRP has also been used in combination with other treatments, such as microneedling and hair transplantation. However, the effectiveness of PRP can vary depending on the method of preparation and the concentration of growth factors.
