Now medical research supports PRP’s use as an alternative intervention to slow down hair loss and even promote new growth of hair.
Blood is drawn from the patients arm, spun in an FDA-cleared centrifuge, where PRP is isolated in a concentrated form. PRP is a component of blood that has healing and growth factors. When injected into an anesthetized part of the scalp, it can promote hair follicles to grow. Typically, patients will notice new hair or thicker, existing hair in 3-6 weeks following the treatment. Depending on the size of the area of loss, the patient and physician will discuss expected number of treatments and realistic outcomes. The procedure does not replace hair transplantation, but may help delay its need, as new modalities come to market. Larger clinical studies are pending but current medical literature exists which contains numerous optimistic results. We cannot make claims of efficacy for all patients. We will help patients optimize a plan. Since PRP is your own blood, there are no allergic reactions expected from its use. .
Also ask us about the use of ACell along with the PRP. This material has been used in wound care for nearly a decade. It has been found to act as a matrix to attract the PRP to the hair follicle, which aids in additional promotion of growth.
