PRP Platelet Rich Plasma Hair Growth Research

PRP- Hair-Growth-PPW
At the 2013 7th Annual World Congress for Hair Research held in Edinburgh Scotland UK, information was presented on several occasions which supported the current theories about why PRP platelet rich plasma offers improvement in hair growth in many patients. Cytokines and growth factors locked within the platelets can be concentrated and released, then injected into the areas of alopecia (hair loss), stimulating hair regrowth. Dr. Alan J. Bauman attended the 7th WCHR meeting specifically to bring back valuable information like this for his colleagues and patients in the U.S.

What is PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma and How is it used in Hair Regrowth?

What is PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma? PRP Platelet Rich Plasma is the use of a person’s own blood platelets to enhance hair growth as a stand-alone treatment or to improve the recovery and results of hair transplant surgery. In the field of cell therapy and tissue regeneration, research is continuing to progress regarding the use of PRP’s ability to stimulate stem cells, improve wound healing, and rejuvenate skin and hair follicles.How is PRP performed as a stand-alone treatment for hair growth? A small sample of blood is obtained from the patient. This sample is processed in an FDA-cleared device to separate the platelets and plasma from other components like red blood cells. Platelets may then be ‘activated,’ releasing powerful molecules which have profound biologic effects on hair follicles and skin. In some cases Extracellular Matrix or ECM (like ACell or BioD) may be added to the PRP. Under comfortable local anesthesia, this powerful cocktail of growth factors, cytokines and other proteins is painlessly injected into the area of scalp under local anesthesia where weak hair follicles exist. MicroPen microneedling of the skin is performed immediately following the injection to activate the platelets. The comfortable, outpatient procedure takes less than one hour to perform and patients may resume all activities, including workouts, shampooing, etc. immediately afterwards as there is no recovery phase. Mild soreness and redness of the scalp, if any, resolves in less than a day and improved hair growth can be measured in a matter of weeks.Is all PRP the same? Unfortunately not, and this is where it can get confusing for patients (and physicians!). At Bauman Medical Group, we use either the FDA-approved Autologel PRP process or YesPRP system to separate and activate Platelet Rich Plasma for use as a stand-alone therapy or in conjunction with hair transplantation. Bauman Medical Group was proud to be the first completely certified hair transplant team to be fully certified by Cytomedix to produce Autologel (2011). That means that every member of our medical team has passed certification for the preparation and application of Autologel PRP. At Bauman Medical Group, we know that our PRP/ECM protocols are providing significant stimulation of hair regrowth and hair follicle rejuvenation, measurable with HairCheck trichometry in just weeks.
Does PRP need to be repeated? Unfortunately, the results of PRP treatment for hair regrowth is not permanent. Most patients who undergo PRP, require repeat treatment in about 12-24 months. It typically takes another three months to measure the improvements via the scientific HairCheck cross-sectional hair bundle trichometry measurements. Over time, PRP may need to be repeated depending on the patient’s response to therapy, hair loss condition, adjunctive treatments and goals. By monitoring the hair growth effect with the HairCheck device over time, we can determine when the improvement in hair growth from PRP slows down, eliminating guesswork. At that time, additional treatment with PRP may be necessary in order to maintain the desired results. What is ACell Extracellular Matrix (ECM)? ACell is an animal-derived Extracellular Matrix (ECM) tissue-regenerating technology that has been used extensively in the fields of medicine and surgery to stimulate stem cells and enhance wound healing. It’s rise in popular culture was accelerated as people with partial finger amputations were able to actually grow back their fingertips (often with the fingernail bed) by using this product. It has also been noted that the use of ACell in wound healing dramatically decreases the appearance of scar tissue in a wound. ACell is a “bio-scaffold” that helps the body heal without excessive scarring. How are ACell and other ECM’s used in Hair Restoration? ACell or BioD ECMs can be used in hair restoration treatments when combined with PRP to stimulate stem cells and rejuvenate and repair the skin and hair follicles. ACell and BioD have also been shown to improve wound healing whenever a cut or incision is made in the skin by reducing the amount of scar tissue formation. BioD has been used for bone regeneration in oral maxillofacial surgery and as an alternative to human cadaver corneal transplants in ophthalmology. What is BioD/Amniogenix? BioD/Amniogenix is a human-derived ECM allograft produced from medically-screened, sterile-harvested, healthy cryopreserved donor placenta tissue. Immunoprivileged, placenta tissue is an ECM that is protected from rejection. Used in hundreds of thousands of procedures in orthopedics, ophthalmology and oral maxillofacial surgery, BioD is a non-animal derived ECM–a proven tissue-regenerating technology that contains powerful proteins, bioscaffold, stem cells and other benefits. Dr. Bauman was the first Hair Restoration Physician world-wide to use BioD/Amniogenix routinely in his PRP hair regrowth treatments and has presented his technique and results at the esteemed Stem Cell Practical Workshop hosted by renowned stem cell expert, Dr. Dipnarine Maharaj–medical director of South Florida Stem Cell & Bone Marrow Transplant Center located in Boynton Beach, FL. Is PRP Platelet Rich Plasma safe? Yes. PRP is immunologically neutral and poses no danger of allergic, hypersensitivity or foreign-body reactions. Sterile technique is used in every stage to prevent infection. A brief period of inflammation/redness at the site of application is normal and expected, indicating the action of the PRP. In order to determine if you are a good candidate for PRP Hair Regrowth, a medical consultation with Dr. Alan Bauman is recommended. Out-of-town or local patients can click here to start a consultation.

PRP Offers Hope for Baldness with a “Vampire Cure”

Jasper Copping, The Sunday TelegraphResearchers found they were able to regrow hair on the bald patches on people’s heads by injecting them with a solution derived from their own blood. The so-called “vampire” treatment involves taking blood from the patient and processing it in a machine that extracts “platelet-rich plasma” (PRP), which is then injected back into the head. Scientists believe the solution then stimulates new stem cells below the skin which can aid the regrowth of hair. Such “vampire” treatments are already used in some cosmetic procedures, where injections of PRP are used in an effort to reduce the effects of aging on the face and hands. The research, published in the latest edition of the British Journal of Dermatology, was conducted among a group of people suffering from alopecia areata, an autoimmune condition that causes hair loss on the scalp and other parts of the body. However, the scientists believe the treatment also could help those suffering more common hair loss conditions, such as male pattern baldness.

PRP Platelet Rich Plasma A Treatment for Hair Growth

How is PRP Performedl?

What are the steps involved with PRP Hair Regrowth Treatment at Bauman Medical Group?1) A mechanical antiseptic scalp wash is performed. 2) The area of thinning hair is identified, photographed, measured with HairCheck and marked. 3) A small blood sample containing a few tablespoons is obtained. 4) The blood sample is processed into PRP using the FDA-approved Autologel system or YesPRP and then ACell, BioD or another Extracellular Matrix (ECM) product may be added. 5) Ouchless™ local anesthesia is applied to the treatment area. 6) The PRP (w/ ACell or other ECM) is injected into the area by Dr. Bauman. 7) Microneedling with a mechanical MicroPen™ is used to create microtrauma in the skin which initiates platelet growth factor activity. 8) 15 minutes of Low Level Laser Therapy using an in-office clinical laser is applied to the scalp following a post-treatment scalp wash. 9) Follow-up HairCheck measurements are scheduled as appropriate to allow for hair growth improvement to be measured, monitored and photographed.Find out more about PRP Hair Regrowth Treatment by contacting Dr. Alan J. Bauman directly by requesting a consultation.How long does a PRP Hair Regrowth Treatment take? A PRP hair regrowth treatment takes less than one hour and may be performed as a “lunchtime” procedure, as there is no recovery or downtime.
