We are pleased to announce that we are currently using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy to treat hair loss in men and women.
PRP is made from your own blood. PRP for hair loss starts with taking a small blood sample. The PRP is made by using a centrifuge to separate platelets and growth factors from your red and white blood cells.
Platelets promote healing. The stem cells and growth factors in PRP improve blood flow to the areas it is injected. That is why we use PRP in a number of regenerative, or aesthetic procedures. PRP has been used for facial rejuvenation, for joint health, and even for sexual wellness.
Hair Loss and PRP
In the case of preventing, or reversing hair loss, PRP therapy increases the blood supply to the scalp and hair follicles. The renewed blood flow boosts nutrients and oxygen to the cells of the hair follicles.
This makes the follicles stronger and more vital, which in turn leads to growth of thicker, stronger hair.
When used as a treatment for typical “male pattern baldness,” PRP injections have been shown to do a better job of restoring hair, and preventing additional hair loss than drugs such as minoxidil.
Other Uses for Platelet Rich Plasma
Those of us in the age-management field have been successfully using PRP for years. Since it is so safe and side-effect free, we continue to experiment with new and innovative procedures. It seems the more we work with PRP, the more we find out what it can do!
In our own clinics in Aventura and our latest location in Miami Beach, we are using PRP for baldness and many other age-reversing procedures.
In addition to a treatment for hair restoration, we use PRP for:
- Joint health
- Back pain
- Facial Rejuvenation – The Vampire Facelift®
PRP is also used as a sexual enhancement treatment for both men and women.
PRP is the basis of the O-shot, or Orgasm shot for women, and my own proprietary erectile dysfunction treatment – the Gains Enhancement for Men.
Both the Orgasm shot and the Gains Enhancement use the growth factors and power of stem cells in PRP to improve sexual function and satisfaction.
In the O-shot the increased blood flow helps women obtain deeper, longer and more satisfying orgasms. It also promotes increased lubrication and sensitivity.
For men, the Gains Enhancement also provides a cure for erectile dysfunction, (ED). Additionally, it is also the only pain free, non-surgical ED treatment that also produces measurable increases in the length and width of your penis!
Have you or anyone you know tried any “age management” treatments? What were the results?
