PRP VS AAPE FOR HAIR LOSS, WHICH IS BETTER?
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy for hair loss is a three-step medical treatment in which a patient’s blood is drawn, processed, and then injected into the scalp. … Sometimes this approach is combined with other hair loss procedures or medications.
According to Wikipedia “Platelet-rich plasma, also known as autologous conditioned plasma, is a concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein derived from whole blood, centrifuged to remove red blood cells. Evidence for benefit is poor.”
Because PRP therapy involves injecting your own blood into your scalp, there carries a risk of side effects such as
injury to blood vessels or nerves, infection, calcification at the injection points, and scar tissue. There is also the chance that you could have a negative reaction to the anesthetic used in the therapy.
The AAPE procedure is safer, easier, cleaner, non-invasive, and painless. AAPE does not require any blood to be taken from you like PRP. There is no anestetic required for the treatment. PRP in the best condition, contain 10-15 growth factors. AAPE in comparison, contains more than 150 growth factors.
