STEM CELLS AND PRP FOR HAIR RESTORATION
AND HAIR GROWTH IMPROVEMENT
PRP has been used for some years to improve the thickness of hair after hair transplant, reduce shedding, reverse miniaturization of hairs that occurs for several years in male and female pattern hair loss, and generally enhance the overall recovery after a hair transplant.
In men and particularly women with fine miniaturization and thinning hair, a series of PRP treatments at one-month intervals, usually three, followed by a booster treatment at one year, can have amazing hair thickening effects.
Mesenchymal stem cells, which have just recently become available, can be added to the PRP for an incredible boost in hair growth. In this situation, a hair may be expected to grow at approximately one month after a transplant, or 1-2 months after a treatment of stem cells and PRP. In this case, usually one treatment is sufficient, although a second may be necessary at the 6-12-month level.
Stem cell/PRP treatments are available at the Pacific Hair Institute offices in Costa Mesa, Beverly Hills and La Qunita.
The doctors at Pacific Hair Institute sometimes also add ACELL to further quicken the growth of transplanted hairs or miniaturized hairs. For more information, contact the office for an in-person consultation.
