REGROW is a procedure to stimulate growth of hair. This treatment is indicated for thinning hair and hair loss for both women and men.
In order to achieve this result, we will apply the PRP (platelets) harvested from your own blood in the treatment area. The procedure will last for about 1 hour.
First your blood will be drawn to extract the platelets (using an FDA approved centrifuge machine to concentrate the blood after the blood draw). Then topical or local anesthesia will be applied to minimize any discomfort you may feel during treatment.
The PRP will be injected using syringes into the areas with large hair loss. Then micro-needling device will be used to apply remaining PRP harvested to the rest of the scalp. Micro-needling of entire scalp with ACell MicroMatrix (serving as the ‘terrain’ for hair follicles to grow) will help stimulate hair follicles. We can also combine PRP with stem cells (from your own fat or from amniotic fluid/umbilical stem cells) for longer lasting results.
You may experience redness in the general treated area and there is possibility of bruising of the injection sites. DO NOT wash your hair for 24 hours.
1 to 3 treatments at 2 month intervals with maintenance treatments every 18 to 36 months would be required for this procedure depending on whether PRP alone is used or stem cell is also used.
All of this procedure takes place while you are under local anesthesia.
Every step of this procedure is NOT covered by any health insurance plan so you are responsible for the entire cost.
Pre and post procedure information will be given as well as nutritional information and a list of recommended supplements.
