PRP Hair Therapy

PLATELET-RICH PLASMA(PRP)

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a high concentration of platelets surrounded in its own plasma. A small amount of your own blood is drawn and the red cells are isolated from the platelet-rich plasma. This PRP is used to stimulate a variety of stem cell and growth factors in your own body – using your own PRP.

Blood-Derived Growth Factors

The internal essence of your blood contains life-giving fundamental protein growth factors and stem cells. PRP utilizes a leading-edge technology to stimulate your body to heal itself. Dr. Melamed uses a patented technique to derive a high concentration of tissue for hair restoration treatments.

GROWTH FACTOR PRODUCTION KNOWN EFFECTS

Epidermal Growth Factor (EFG)

Plays a significant role in the regulation of cell growth, proliferation and differentiation during the remodeling phase. Stimulates keratinocyte and fibroblast production.

Transforming Growth Factor (TFG)

Promotes angiogenesis which is the physiological process involving the growth of new blood vessels.

Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)

An important signaling protein involved in both vasculogenesis and angiogenesis that may help the growth of blood vessels from pre-existing vasculature.

Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF)

Promotes angiogenesis, granulation, and epithelialization for the intricate process of tissue repairing itself after injury.

Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF)

Attracts macrophages and fibroblasts to the zone of injury. Promotes collagen growth and proteoglycan synthesis.

Collagen Stimulating Growth Factor

Stimulates granulocyte and macrophage proliferation for the growth of healthy tissue and blood cells.

Keratinocyte Growth Factor (KGF)

Keratinocyte migration, differentiation, and proliferations may optimize conditions for healing and the generation of new skin.

Interleukins, Macrophages, Keratinocytes, Endothelial Cells, Lymphocytes, Fibroblasts, Osteoblasts, Basophils, Mast Cells

Activates fibroblast differentiation. Induces collagen and proteoglycan synthesis for healthy cell production and repair of damaged tissues.

The internal essence of your blood contains life-giving fundamental protein growth factors and stem cells. PRP utilizes a leading-edge technology to stimulate your body to heal itself. Dr. Melamed is able to derive a high concentration of tissue for a variety of treatments.
