PRE- HAIR TRANSPLANT PATIENTS

PRP is recommended to prime the scalp prior to hair restoration. PRP generates tiny new blood vessels prior to transplantation that will help supply nutrients to the transplanted follicles, enhancing their survival.blood vessel hair follicle

POST- HAIR TRANSPLANT PATIENTS

Lifelong PRP treatments will be required after a hair transplant in order to maintain follicle health and maximize hair density. Without PRP, the inflammatory and genetic conditions that originally led to your hair loss will continue to manifest themselves, leading to slow damage of the transplanted follicles over time.

MEN

Male pattern baldness (male androgenetic alopecia) has a profound psychological effect on the 70%-90% of men it will affect in their lifetime. PRP should be a primary treatment in conjunction with minoxidil (Rogaine), and oral therapies like finasteride and Nutrafol.

WOMEN

Female pattern hair loss (female androgenetic alopecia) is estimated to occur in 19%-32% of women, with some estimates reaching as high as 54%.  As with male pattern hair loss, time is of the essence, and PRP treatments should be commenced as soon as possible to prevent worsening and/or permanent hair follicle loss.

BEFORE AND AFTER PHOTOS

Since there is no permanent cure for hair loss- even with a transplant- all SLK patients should be committed to 6 PRP treatments. 3 PRP treatments is the minimum treatment series performed at SLK:

before and after prp for front scalp man

male prp before and after crown of head

ACELL

What is ACell Micromatrix? ACell Micromatrix is a wound-healing product sold by the company, ACell, that is formulated from porcine (pig) urinary bladder. To date, no studies have been able to prove the efficacy of ACell Micromatrix in hair regeneration as compared to PRP alone. We do not offer ACell due to 1. it's high cost to the patient, 2. the lack of efficacy data and 3. higher risk of allergic reaction because it is derived from an animal product. Only in the case that a patient fails 6 PRP treatments do we recommend trying ACell. However, at SLK we do believe there exists a strong scientific argument for providing matrix scaffolding support for PRP, and thus we do supply another type of matrix for all of our hair PRP patients.
