Can Blood Plasma Injections treat hair loss and baldness

If you are suffering from mild hair loss or hair thinning condition and looking for the remedy that helps you regrow your lost hair without inducing any discomfort, then you must consider the blood plasma injections for that.

Our blood consists of white blood cells, red blood cells, platelets and plasma. Plasma is the fluid part of the blood which carries important nutrients and growth factors throughout the body. Platelets are smaller cells of the body that act as the repairing agents at the sites of injuries in the body. Platelets are also known as the providers of growth factors to the body’s cell to stimulate their growth. Therefore they can also be used for stimulating the growth of hair follicles or hair cells.

PRP solution is the fluid that is highly concentrated with the platelets while red and white blood cells have been removed. This fluid is obtained from the blood of the patient itself and injected into the thinning and balding parts of the scalp to stimulate the hair growth.


PRP is not a daylong and painful procedure. It takes about 60-90 minutes to complete a single session of a PRP treatment for hair loss. Most of the surgeons advise undergoing 4-5 sessions of the PRP treatment 4-6 weeks apart.

Initially, a clinician takes out a sample of blood from the body of the patient. That blood is then inserted into a special apparatus to separate the red and white blood cells to obtain pure plasma with a higher concentration of platelets in it. This plasma is then injected into the affected parts of the scalp to stimulate and enhance the growth of hair follicles.

Hair loss conditions that can be treated

Popularly known for dealing with male/female pattern baldness, blood plasma injections can be utilized for treating numerous hair loss conditions.

One can stimulate the growth of damaged hair follicles due to the trichotillomania or traction Alopecia. Since these are temporary hair loss conditions, the chances of regaining the hair with PRP therapy are high.

Blood plasma injection can stimulate the hair follicles that have been damaged due to autoimmune attacks. PRP hair loss treatment in Dubai is assumed as the best remedy for Alopecia Areata, an underlying hair loss condition.

Recovery process

Since the entire procedure of the PRP therapy takes only 60 to 90 minutes to complete, the recovery period is also typically shorter.

Due to the incisions created by the plasma injections, you may expect to have slight soreness and tenderness on your scalp for 2-3 days after the procedure. But these discomforts can be eased by taking medication that your surgeons have prescribed for you.

Do not wash your scalp for at least 12 hours after the procedure and deal the scalp gently, avoid scratching or rubbing unnecessarily.


For the mild cases, a single session of PRP is enough to produce results. But in the severe cases of hair loss and hair thinning, you may need to go for at least 3-4 sessions of PRP. The required number of sessions may vary depending upon the particular type of hair loss in different cases.
