Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Transplant
Dr. Ben Talei of Beverly Hills Hair Group is proud to offer platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy for men and women suffering from hair loss. This advanced and FDA-cleared hair restoration technique uses a patient’s own blood to effectively prevent hair loss, stimulate new hair growth, and enhance the recovery and results of hair transplant surgery.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a highly concentrated blood plasma that contains growth factors and other bioactive proteins that are known for facilitating wound and tissue healing. Research suggests that this same scientific process may also serve as a safe and effective treatment option for male and female pattern hair loss. Patients benefit from this treatment by experiencing a considerable slowdown in hair loss to no further hair loss, and 50 percent of patients can see their existing follicles regrow thicker, stronger and faster for amazing results.
Dr. Talei, a dual board certified plastic surgeon uses PRP therapy as a beneficial adjuvant therapy in hair transplantation. It not only promotes wound healing at the surgical site, but it also stimulates hair growth immediately following hair transplant surgery. PRP injections can be used in many ways during and after hair transplant surgery. Often the extracted hair grafts are soaked in this concentrated platelet rich plasma or sprayed onto the donor and recipient areas of the scalp.
PRP Hair Loss Injections
For the medical treatment of hair loss or as maintenance therapy after hair transplant surgery, Dr. Talei uses PRP injections to reverse the shrinkage of hair follicles that occurs during androgenetic alopecia (or common baldness). Traditional PRP treatments at other hair loss clinics require patients to come in for 6 sessions the first year, which means getting local anesthetic administered 6 times, and six times the risk for increased swelling in the scalp.
While most hair loss clinics go the conservative route for PRP treatments utilizing single vials of 5-6 cc of PRP, Beverly Hills Hair Group takes it to another level. Beverly Hills Hair Group has perfected a new method that only requires 2 sessions the first year by utilizing 2-3 times the amount of traditional PRP combined with either ACell, a MicroMatrix, or micronized fat extracted from the patient. The results speak for themselves as they deliver unparalleled results with less inconvenience and discomfort for the patient.
- PRP + ACell
- ACell is a MicroMatrix and is an animal derivative. It has regenerative cell properties, comparable to the abilities of stem cells. We mix 100mg of ACell and 15-16cc of super-concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma and do approximately 2,000 injections all over the scalp. ACell has 20,000 cells per 100mg.
- PRP + Micronized Fat
- For this procedure, we liposuction 15cc of fat from your abdomen area using minimally-invasive methods. This micronized fat is liquefied and mixed with 15-16cc of super-concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma, to do approximately 2,000 injections all over the scalp. Micronized fat has approximately 2,000,000 cells.
