In October 2017, it was concluded that PRP promotes hair growth and increases the number of hair follicles by inducing angiogenesis.(6) The Functional Medicine Center’s Non-Surgical Hair Restoration can actually cause the growth of new blood supply to hair follicles.
Earlier research in the Journal of Dermatologic Surgery found PRP also causes angiogenesis but also encourages hair follicles to enter and extend the duration of the anagen phase (the most active growth portion of the hair growth cycle).(7)
In Barcelona, six years of clinical experience was documented and published regarding PRP for androgenetic alopecia. Men with with androgenetic alopecia had a success rate of 71.4% (more hair) with 21.4% staying the same (stopped further hair loss). Women had success rate of 73.4% with 16.3% staying the same.(9)
