Alopecia Areata - PRP Results


#1

This female patient presented to Dr. Cole with alopecia areata, nearly in totalis. She began experiencing hair loss as an infant and her condition worsened as she grew older and, particularly, when she became pregnant. She had some past success in re-growing hair with kenalog injections, but her hair loss accelerated seven or eight months before she came to see Dr. Cole.

In February of this year, Dr. Cole administered Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy on this patient. This involved drawing the patient’s blood, which was then placed in a centrifuge to separate out the platelet-rich portion. The platelet rich plasma, rich in a variety of growth factors, was then administered via injections into the scalp. The second set of photos were taken at a follow-up appointment 6 months after her initial PRP treatment. The patient reported that this is the best response that she has ever had to treatment for her alopecia areata, and we are hopeful that we will see further progress in the future.

This is the first i’ve ever heard of this method. Does not a copious amount of blood already flow to the scalp ?

I wonder if it could help people with MPB to kick start growth with propecia + minoxidil.

PRP is not just blood, it is autologous blood platelets, including several different growth hormones, thought to stimulate regrowth.

This method was discussed extensively in the past and was even attempted in a self-trail by Dr. Jones. As his transparently documented the results which showed to be hardly impressive, the topic was then soon dismissed from the general discussion. I have little hope that PRP is anything far from a cure.
