From Johns Hopkins Medicine:
If you live in Fort Myers or Naples Florida, you now have a very powerful treatment for hair loss. Platelet-rich-plasma or PRP for hair loss consists of two elements: plasma, or the liquid portion of blood and platelets. (a type of blood cell that plays an important role in rejuvenation, healing and promotes growth). Platelets are well-known for their clotting abilities, but they also contain growth factors that can trigger stem cells and stimulate new tissue regeneration in the treated area. Platelet-rich-plasma is simply blood that contains more platelets than normal.
After creating platelet-rich-plasma (PRP for hair loss) from a patient’s blood sample, that solution has been processed to a highly concentrated plasma, full of healthy platelets that are injected into the target area, such as the scalp for new hair growth. The idea is to increase the concentration of specific bioproteins or hormones, called growth factors in the skin of the head to promote new hair growth. This methodology has proven to be a reliable protocol and one of the best methods for hair restoration through out the world. The largest men’s hair restoration company (Bosley) focuses most of their treatments using PRP hair restoration rather than hair plugs.
At Hair Loss Heroes, our Naples hair restoration doctors started treating patients two decades ago with PRP.
Through the years they have found small modifications in the protocol that produced better hair growth.
15 years later and many adaptations to the protocol resulted in an enhanced PRP we call Protein Biologic Concentrate (PBC).
Your hair restoration journey will start with an evaluation. We will evaluate your hair thinning and determine if you are a prime candidate for our treatment. Because we want the best outcome, we will determining whether this treatment is right for you. 90% of women will get positive results from PBC. We strive for results that outperform the national average.
Platelet Rich Protein is very fragile and mistakes can be made easily in both the processing and the PBC injection process. There are literally hundreds of variable that can enhance or hinder the outcome in this revolutionary hair restoration procedure. Hair Loss Heroes are better than others because we are experts in PBC and have been mastering hair restoration since 2008. Our hair loss doctor is a pioneer in developing and improving this hair restoration treatment.
If you have had PRP in the past, chances are pretty good that a nurse or lab technician was doing the procedure. We are a group of doctors that make sure all treatments are as good as they can be. A doctor will be present at all treatments.
The treatment is most effective by processing extra concentrated platelets and to administer healthy cells without damaging the cells in the treatment. The more growth hormones the better the results. The more active and healthy platelets in the plasma the better the outcome. The Protein Biologic Concentrate is different from others and we stand by that fact. There is a proprietary protocol in the processing, growth factors and administering the injections.
