Independent Study

Hair line picture A newly published independent study, Oct. 2013, in the Journal of Dermatologic Surgery,  “Promotional Effect of Platelet Rich Plasma on Hair Follicle Reconstitution in vivo” concluded that “there is a considerable effect of PRP on the time of hair formation and the yield of HF reconstitution” when compared to controls with no PRP.

Additionally, higher levels of PRP concentrations “grew hair sooner and denser than no PRP.”

While there are some growth factors that are negative for hair, this study confirms our position since 2007 that the “combination of all the growth factors in PRP are positive for hair” and higher levels of growth factors or concentrations of PRP are more effective.

In 2007, Greco Medical Group was the first to incorporate the use of biologics in all phases of hair transplant surgery called “Bio Enhanced Hair Restoration” and the first to use “Non-surgical PRP” for hair improvement. New independent studies like this verify the effectiveness of our Bio-Enhanced hair procedures. 

The best way to evaluate a patient is to arrange a personal, in-depth consultation. However, this is impossible for many patients who fly in from other parts of the country or world. For this reason, we have developed the remote consultation package, which is an acceptable alternative to the in-person personal consult.

Once your photos and questionnaire are reviewed, we will telephone you to discuss your questions or concerns regarding the procedure. You will also be given a suggested treatment plan and the costs involved. Click here for more complete information on our free online hair restoration consultation process.
