Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy for Hair Restoration
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy, an innovative technique that is already being used for non-surgical cosmetic treatment and facial rejuvenation, is now also available for the treatment of pattern hair loss. Using the Eclipse MicroPen™ to stimulate the body’s healing capabilities, PRP therapy can harness the power of stem cells to reactivate inactive hair follicles. The process of PRP therapy begins by isolating the stem cells found within your own blood, making this particular technique of hair restoration a natural alternative to more invasive surgical procedures. In addition, PRP therapy can be combined with other non-surgical methods of hair restoration – including Formula 82M – to increase the likelihood of achieving significant and dramatic hair regrowth.
Formula 82M for Hair Re-Growth
Since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Minoxidil to treat androgenetic alopecia, this effective treatment has been one of the most popular therapy options to treat pattern baldness. Recently, scientists have discovered that Minoxidil combined with other substances, such as tretinoin (a dermatological cream commonly used to treat acne), a topical steroid, oleanolic acid, and other ingredients, can provide even more effective and long-lasting results than Minoxidil alone. Formula 82M is one of the most recent formulations of other solutions in addition to Minoxidil that can stimulate the growth of new hair with significant and long-lasting results.
A higher concentration of Minoxidil combined with other topical agents, such as that in Formula 82M, has shown to be very effective, even after only three months of treatment and in patients with advanced cases of androgenetic alopecia. Formula 82M can serve as an alternative to ROGAINE® and Propecia®, and may even be effective enough for some patients to avoid hair transplantation surgery.
Formula 82M is available at our practice and is easily applied with a spray applicator. Patients typically use Formula 82M twice each day over a three-month period.
