    Default Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

    This treatment recently seems to be getting a lot of media/news coverage, at least on my local news stations.
    It's being touted as the "cure for MPB"
    EDIT > > > Local news is doing another segment on it now!

    And another segment last night...what I don't understand > > > if DHT found in our blood is what causes MPB then how would injecting the blood/plasma under the scalp do anything, doesn't the plasma STILL contain the same DHT causing the problem in the first place???

    I guess it is another money making tool for doctors that's why it is getting lot of attention.

    Thing is, they're calming it as "a cure"!

    I think it's worth, PRP Therapy has been widely used since the 1990’s to aid in patient recovery after surgery. This emerging biotechnology continues to expand its reach in other areas of medicine, notably in orthopedics, rehabilitative and restorative medicine.

    Here's what I don't understand and maybe I'm not getting it but > > > if DHT is in your blood and the primary cause of MPB how would injecting the PRP into the scalp do anything, is the DHT no longer present?

    One of my supervisors underwent this treatment from Thailand. Imagine from no hair- it turns out to have a few hairs. Lol

    PRP is blood plasma that has been collected from the patientís body and enriched with concentrated platelets infused with a ****tail of bioactive proteins and human growth hormones. That's why it works very effectively.

    But again I ask...isn't the DHT still present in the "blood plasma"...and why would you want to inject that back into your scalp?

    That's an interesting question. Here is Gail's response (CEO of Histogen, and a doctor as well). We don't want to test anti DHT. Histogen will last the time of the hair growth cycle, which is usually two to five years.

    So in other words, after your hair falls out again, you're screwed. You have to keep getting Histogen injected into your scalp.
