Platelet-rich plasma therapy may be one of the best-kept secrets in dermatology for the treatment and prevention of hair loss. This non-surgical option encourages new hair growth, augments existing hair growth and stimulates stem cells around a follicle to get thicker which reverses the miniaturization of the follicle. Dr. Ende uses platelet-rich plasma in New York to help nearly all of his patients grow beautiful hair naturally and repair existing follicles.
What Does It Do?
Platelets have growth factors, which can stimulate cell growth. They are known for the way they assist healing wounds. Specialty procedures have used this platelet-rich plasma in New York for more than twenty years to promote positive outcomes treating sports injuries and in the fields of oral and cosmetic surgery. Platelet-Derived Growth Factors, which are specific cells within the platelet-rich plasma, improve blood vessel growth and cell replication in the treatment area.
How Does It Work?
The doctor takes patient blood and puts it into a centrifuge, separating the enriched cells and essential growth proteins from the rest of the blood’s properties. It is injected into the scalp with a microneedle. The result is a therapy that uses a patient’s own cells to stimulate hair, scalp and skin. This outpatient procedure lasts approximately 60 minutes per session. Multiple sessions may be recommended to achieve the desired results.
PRP therapy is appropriate for men and women. This state of the art, non-surgical procedure can be used to augment other protocols, such as the results of hair restoration surgery and use with DHT blockers. It can also be an alternative treatment for hair thinning or loss. As the patient’s blood is used, there is no concern about contamination, and the immune system will not reject it. Dr. Ende uses platelet-rich plasma in New York that is five to six times more concentrated than the plasma found in normal blood. The results have been shown to be reliable and the recovery period is fast. To schedule a complimentary consultation call (917) 678-5606 OR fill out the online form.
