  • Alopecia areata (AA) is a common autoimmune condition, causing inflammation‐induced hair loss. This disease has very limited treatment possibilities, and no treatment is either curative or preventive. Platelet‐rich plasma (PRP) has emerged as a new treatment modality in dermatology, and preliminary evidence has suggested that it might have a beneficial role in hair growth.
