Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)
Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) therapy uses your own blood platelets to encourage natural, new hair growth. PRP has been particularly effective for those with alopecia who have not responded to minoxidil.
Platelets are the component in your blood that your body uses to promote healing. With the use of a centrifuge Dr. Doser separates the platelets from your own blood then injects the concentrated platelets into the areas of concern. PRP has proteins and growth factors that naturally promote healing and repair tissue damage.
A recent meta-analysis of research on PRP for hair loss found the PRP both reduced hair loss and increased the size and density of hair.
The results and the science speak for themselves. Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) therapy triggers new hair growth. A recent study in the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery states that though still in its infancy, "PRP has sufficient theoretical scientific basis to support its use in hair restoration...".
Study Results: A significant reduction in hair loss was observed between first and fourth injection. Hair count increased from average number of 71 hair follicular units to 93 hair follicular units. Therefore, average mean gain is 22.09 follicular units per cm2. After the fourth session, the pull test was negative in 9 patients.
