Platelet-Rich Plasma in the Treatment of Androgenetic Alopecia: An Equation with Many Unknowns


Elena E. Pakhomova

The article deals with the use of platelet-rich plasma in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia: effectiveness, problems and prospects. Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA) is one of the most common types of non-scarring hair loss. Baldness affects the psycho-emotional state of a person, which significantly reduces the quality of life. An opinion deviating from generally accepted standards exists that with a normal level of androgens in the blood, AGA in men is a normal biological phenomenon, and not a disease. Regardless of how their condition is classified, people with AGA perceive it as a deviation from the norm, unacceptable from a psychosocial point of view, and turn to a doctor for treatment.
