Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a powerful tool for helping reduce hair loss and even reverse it. PRP can be used to help thicken hair, and it even works with hair transplants. It is injected around hair follicles to release growth factors and recruit stem cells, which is believed to stimulate follicular growth. By increasing collagen and keratin production, building blocks of the hair cuticle, hair grows thicker. PRP even helps activate follicles that have gone dormant and stopped producing hair. While outcomes differ for every individual, results are typically noticed approximately 6 months after the initial treatment. Typically three treatments, about 4-6 weeks apart are recommended. Follow-up sessions are recommended every 6-12 months. This non-surgical procedure uses your own blood, with minimal risk, no downtime and natural looking results.
Allograft Cellular Therapy
For optimal results, Allograft Cellular Therapy (ACT) is often used in conjunction with PRP. ACT triggers abundant new blood vessel formation and attracts stem cells and growth factors to the treatment site. Stem cells have the potential to differentiate into numerous types of tissues. In the hair restoration process stem cells convert to epithelial stem cells, which are normally found at the bulge of hair follicles. Epithelial stem cells regenerate the different cell types of human skin and hair follicles. ACT is believed to provide the body with a scaffold containing a collection of proteins and collagens that allow the body’s cells to integrate naturally into the tissue.
