TLDR Platelet-rich plasma treatment could potentially be an effective way to treat chronic alopecia areata with minimal side effects.
In 2014, a study at Kamal Hospital, Kaushambi, India, involving 20 patients aged 25-35 years with a history of chronic alopecia areata (AA), evaluated the efficacy of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment. After six sessions of PRP treatment, only one patient experienced a relapse and no side effects were reported. The study concluded that PRP could potentially be an effective treatment for AA, but emphasized the need for further long-term studies to validate these results.View this study on doi.org →
