Current Hair Loss Treatment

Do you know what the most commonly prescribed hair loss medications are? Minoxidil and Finasteride treatment, and with good reason. These drugs are great for tackling hair loss, with plenty of evidence to support them. Let’s look at how they work:


Minoxidil, while not fully understood, is believed to have a triple effect:

  • Researchers believe that the drug keeps your hair follicles in the anagen, or "growth", phase of their life cycle which promotes growth of thicker & healthier hair.

  • Hair follicles also enter the growth phase earlier, furthering this effect of increased hair growth.

  • Minoxidil also works as a vasodilator, which means it causes your blood vessels to expand and increase blood flow. The better the blood supply to a tissue the healthier the tissue, including your scalp and hair!

Finasteride works to increase levels of testosterone:

  • By blocking an enzyme called 5-alpha-reductase which breaks down testosterone to dihydrotestosterone, which can cause hair loss. A bonus effect is a reduced prostate growth in men, which has been shown to substantially reduce prostate cancer risk.

  • This treatment is currently only approved for men, post-menopausal women, and potentially women who have no plans to have children. This is because Finasteride can cause severe complications in pregnancy.

  • A topical formulation is currently in research and could possibly be suitable for pre-menopausal women.

Emerging Hair Loss Treatment: PRP

If you look a little further, you’ll find a hair loss remedy called “PRP”. This stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma, which other than being a mouthful is also a powerful tissue-regenerative treatment. This treatment has garnered a lot of attention recently, and scientific research is showing that it is a promising treatment for hair loss – potentially even more effective than Minoxidil. But how does it work?


PRP harnesses the power of platelets for a triple effect on hair loss:

  • Platelets contain many molecules called growth factors, which have a powerful effect on tissue regeneration.

  • PRP is shown to keep your hair follicles in the anagen phase of their life cycle for longer. This allows your hair more time to grow thicker and healthier.

  • Resting hair follicles are pushed into the growth phase earlier. This results in the growth of hair that has not grown for a long time, giving the appearance of new hair growth.

  • New blood vessels are produced in and around the hair follicles of your scalp. These new blood vessels mean a better blood supply, a better blood supply means healthier tissue, and a healthier tissue means healthier hair.

Combining PRP with Minoxidil

Did you notice any similarities between PRP therapy and Minoxidil? It appears that PRP and Minoxidil have the same effects, with different mechanisms of action. Could this mean they could work together for an even better hair regeneration effect? Logic would say yes, and it’s looking like that logic is backed by science.


The combination of PRP and Minoxidil has been found to be an excellent method of hair restoration in recent studies. The result is more hair, thicker hairs, and a greater proportion of hair follicles in the growth phase.
