Is PRP Better Than Hair Transplant?

Two of the arguably most effective hair restoration methods are PRP hair restoration and hair transplant surgery. Generally, the effectiveness of each of these treatments depends on the degree of hair loss and age. For patients who have tried many hair restoration techniques, or those who want to avoid surgery, they often ask, “Is PRP better than hair transplant?”

The answer to this question depends on a few factors. First off, PRP hair restoration is not effective if a patient is in the more advanced stages of hair loss. Usually, PRP hair restoration is best for younger patients who are beginning to experience the initial hair thinning and loss that comes with genetic hair loss. For these patients, PRP is often a better fit than hair transplant surgery. 

However, for patients who have lost large amounts of hair, or who have little hair left, hair transplant surgery may better serve their needs. This is usually true for older patients with more significant loss or thinning. Hair transplants will typically provide the best results to these patients. 

While both treatments cannot treat completely bald patients, the best hair restoration technique for you depends on the extent and specifics of your hair loss. Our hair restoration experts can determine whether PRP is better than hair transplant surgery for you or vice versa.
