Description of treatment
Dr Zontos has been performing PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma )therapy as a proactive therapeutic option for male and female patients experiencing hair loss. PRP is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions.
Blood is removed in the clinic and then undergoes special preparation to activate the platelets. With a thin needle, your own (PRP) is injected into the scalp. Then the growth factors in your blood cells do their job and hair growth is naturally stimulated.
PRP contains many growth factors that stimulate the hair follicle’s growth. PRP can be used preoperatively, intraoperatively, or post operatively. Some patient’s chose to have PRP performed every month, three times in a row as early data suggests regular or semiannual PRP treatments that may stimulate hair growth.
