Blood was drawn to be processed in order to "create" PRP.  A total of 60cc of blood was drawn. Here is what PRP is. Numbing cream was placed on the front of the scalp. A scalp block was performed.

This is largely due to the effect of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) around the hair follicle.  Cytokines are signaling molecules that allows for cells to communicate. They can trigger cell movement towards injury as well as stimulate stem cells within the hair follicle. What is so unique about our hair program and why is it so effective? We:- Obtain the highest yield of platelets from superior processing of the blood. Stimulate injury within the scalp with micro-needling to allow for activation of PRP. Allow for regeneration... continue reading >
