“I was so upset by my thinning hair. Treatment with PRP has really made a difference and I’m so glad I gave it a try.” ”—AB, Norwood
“PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is a nonsurgical hair-loss treatment that involves injecting platelets, extracted from your own blood, into your scalp to restore thinning hair. Research shows that PRP can stimulate the follicles and slow the rate of hair loss. In some cases, it may even help regrow hair. ” —Dr. Michele Grodberg
“The blood draw takes a couple of minutes, followed immediately by a 10-minute centrifugation. Application time varies based on the procedure.”
"Since the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is produced from a patient’s own blood, there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or rejection."
“The process of PRP extraction and certain treatments using PRP have been approved by the FDA. PRP treatments for hair regrowth, acne scarring, and facial rejuvenation have not yet been specifically approved by the FDA and are currently the subject of numerous scientific studies and research with very promising early results.”
Dr. Grodberg brings her extensive experience and deep physicians’s knowledge to follow-up care and has designed standard guidelines as a starting point for most common procedures. If you are planning to add PRP to your skin rejuvenation procedure make sure to drink plenty of water the day before and the day of our procedure since hydration facilitates blood drawing and the amount of plasma available
