Hair Transplant Surgeon Dr. Alan Feller Shares Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Loss Treatment Update
Of all the new non-surgical hair loss treatments being researched, tested, and offered (in the preliminary phases) today, one frequently discussed by patients is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections.
Platelet Rich Plasma is a process where a patient’s blood is drawn, separated and concentrated through a process called centrifugation, and re-injected into desired areas of the body. In theory, the PRP process concentrates useful cellular components of the blood and injects them into areas where the body can utilize the additional resources. The practice has been used for many years in wound healing and sport injury therapies, but now its focus is shifting toward treating hair loss.
One of the proponents and practitioners of Platelet Rich Plasma injections for hair loss is Coalition hair transplant surgeon Dr. Alan Feller. For a number of years, Dr. Feller has offered PRP injections at his New York hair restoration practice and is pleased with the continual results.
Recently, Dr. Feller chose to share an interesting Platelet Rich Plasma case with our Hair Loss Social Community and Discussion Forums. In the case presentation, Dr. Feller displays the results of a 35 year old female patient who underwent PRP injections 9 months earlier. According to Dr. Feller:
My initial interest in PRP was based on the ability to offer a useful and practical treatment for patients who were not candiates for surgical hair restoration, ie: most woman and young men who are just beginning the miniaturization process … I’m a massive skeptic about everything in general, but some of these PRP results are quite impressive. This one is about as clear cut as you get and she is truly over the moon with it. She said her hair stylist noticed the obvious improvement without knowing she received PRP treatment; and that kind of confirmation is priceless.
