Non-surgical Hair Restoration: A New Results-Based Innovation – Boston, MA

July 29, 2015

Dream Spa Medical uses an innovative technology called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Microneedling in order to non-surgically implant your body’s own growth factors to areas of hair loss and stimulate hair growth in these regions. Microneedling with PRP is able to restore hair growth for clients who have the following conditions:

  1. Male Pattern Hair Loss – especially in the early stages of balding, or anytime there is a lot of thinning hair on the scalp
  2. Female Pattern Hair Loss – at all stages of hair loss
  3. Hypotrichosis (fine/reduced hairs) of the eyebrows or beard
  4. Alopecia Areata (bald patches on the head or beard)
  5. Metabolic causes of hair loss – iron deficiency and medication induced hair loss
  6. Chemotherapy induced hair loss

How PRP Works For Non-Surgical Hair Restoration

PRP is a nutrient rich substance produce by the body and can be extracted by drawing a small amount of blood (a blood sample equivalent to approximately the amount required to a basic lab test) and putting it into a special centrifuge that spins the blood at the necessary speed to separate out the PRP.

The PRP is then used in combination with an FDA approved medical grade device  which is used to create superficial micro-channels in the areas of hair loss through which PRP enters the deeper layers of the skin and infuses nutrients and growth factors into hair follicles.  The application of PRP causes miniaturized hair follicles to become healthier and larger, producing more robust hair growth.  If used in combination with specialized RevivogenMD homecare products (Shampoo, Conditioner and Serum), incredible results can be achieved.  Take a look at some before and after photos below.

The recovery from PRP requires very minimal downtime. Some mild redness of the treated area(s) is occasionally seen 4-6 hours after the treatment. This is normal and will resolve in 48 hours.

Two treatments are recommended 4- 6 months apart and annual maintenance once per year will help re-stimulate growth and maintain results.

New hair growth can be seen as early as 2 weeks (if using homecare products in conjunction with treatment), but is typically evident between 5-8 months and will continue to improve up to a year after treatment.
