In addition to restoring your hair through hair restoration surgery, and medications that are proven to assist in keeping your hair, we are now offering Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) to treat thinning, or the appearance of thinning hair!
Currently there are only two FDA approved options for treating hair loss: topical minoxidil and oral finasteride. However, for some patients these options may be either ineffective, undesirable, or they may simply prefer to avoid medication. A new option called high density PRP (platelet rich plasma) is now available! Doctors involved with regenerative medicine have proven the benefits of high density platelet rich plasma to concentrate the healing power and growth factors found in your own blood stream, to improve wound healing and rebuild damaged tissues. Mounting anecdotal evidence supports the use of PRP to help improve hair growth in areas of thinning hair.
Some doctors and clinics have been offering PRP to treat hair loss for several years, based on its proven use in regenerative medicine and the expectation it may work to treat thinning hair. Since its introduction, anecdotal response rates of >70% have been reported. The number of companies offering kits and devices to perform injectable high density PRP have also multiplied. While published evidence from clinical trials are not yet available, the volume of anecdotal results continues to increase. For this reason, and after researching the various alternatives, Dr. Keene decided to provide the option of high density PRP therapy using the reputable Emcyte system. Dr. Keene remains committed to offering established medical therapies to treat hair loss, alongside her surgical practice. For patients who are seeking an alternative to the already recognized treatments of topical minoxidil and oral finasteride, you may wish to consider PRP. Patients will benefit from an introductory low price of $389.00 per session through 2017. Compare this to $1500 being offered elsewhere in the area.
