Advanced Technology with CRP/Matrix

At the heart of our comprehensive hair restoration portfolio, CRP/Matrix stands strong, offering a diverse range of non-surgical and surgical solutions.

From Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to Cytokine Rich Plasma (CRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy has gained popularity among physicians as a powerful tool in regenerative medicine, hair restoration and dermatology.

However, at Greco Hair Restoration, we take PRP to the next level and utilize what we refer to as Cytokine Rich Plasma, or CRP.

For over a decade, we have been at the forefront of utilizing this valuable therapy in various non-surgical and surgical procedures for hair restoration, skin rejuvenation, and regenerative medicine.  It has evolved during this time using innovative and patented technology developed here at Greco Hair Restoration by Joseph F. Greco, Ph.D., PA-C, into what we have come to call CRP/Matrix.

CRP/Matrix is the cornerstone of our therapic portfolio of treatments for non-surgical and surgical hair restoration, skin rejuvenation, regenerative therapies, and ortho-biologic joint injections.

The cytokine-rich plasma comes from your blood—which is more powerful than you think.

What is Cytokine-Rich Plasma/Matrix?

CRP/Matrix contains optimal levels of growth factors and anti-inflammatory cytokines — essentially, this means a purer and more powerful grade of your own regenerative material (growth factors and bio-active molecules) is used to help hair re-growth, skin rejuvenation, joint pains, limitations in mobility, sports injuries and more. With CRP/Matrix, Greco Hair Restoration is continuing to advance the science of regenerative medicine.

Conditions Treated

CRP/Matrix is delivered to the target tissue using injectable, microneedling, topical, or intravenous techniques and may be combined with regenerative cells to treat a variety of conditions, including:

  • Hair Loss due to most causes, including alopecia related to male and female pattern loss, hormonal imbalances, inflammation, stress, medications, trauma, auto-immune disorders, reductions in blood supply, and more
  • Pain related to joint disease from age-related degeneration, overuse, or auto-immune conditions
  • Musculoskeletal and sports injuries
  • Skin rejuvenation

The Three Core Components of CRP/Matrix

The unique and natural CRP/Matrix contains three main components, all autologous and derived from each patient’s own blood: 

Growth factors with anabolic properties

The growth factors that are derived from the body’s platelets exert an anabolic and regenerative effect on the target tissue by stimulating enhanced growth and function of stem cells in addition to the repair of tissue-specific cells in the skin, hair, joints, muscle, and blood vessels.  This translates clinically into rejuvenated skin, hair regrowth, reduction in joint pain, improvements in mobility, enhanced wound healing, and much more.

Anti-inflammatory cytokines

Through their effects on cellular signaling, the anti-inflammatory cytokines can block the harmful inflammatory molecules that are linked to tissue damage that may result in hair loss, skin aging, joint pain, musculoskeletal limitations, and fatigue. The inflammatory blockade restores a more balanced, natural environment, stimulates cellular growth, and aids in wound healing. 

Natural protein matrix

This is the key differentiating factor with CRP/matrix. We use a proprietary technique to create a natural protein-rich matrix to serve as a biological scaffold to concentrate the growth factors and anti-inflammatory cytokines in the target tissue at far higher levels than can be achieved without it, as with traditional PRP. It provides an optimal environment for tissue remodeling and regeneration. The concentrated protein-rich matrix resides in the target tissue for long periods of time, which yields longer-lasting effects.

CRP/Matrix as the signature therapy at Greco Hair Restoration

Our patented and proprietary CRP/Matrix is the core component of our non-surgical, surgical, and regenerative treatments.  CRP/Matrix may be used alone or combined with regenerative cells, exosomes, and cytosomes for use in the following procedures:

  • Non-surgical BioScalp hair restoration
  • Non-surgical BioFacial skin rejuvenation
  • Surgical hair restoration with Bio-Enhanced FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)
  • Surgical hair restoration with Bio-Enhanced FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation)
  • Advanced IV Regenerative Therapy
  • Ortho-biologic joint injections of the shoulders, knees, lower back, hands, feet, wrists, and ankles
  • Personalized take-home growth factor serum for hair growth and skin rejuvenation
  • Photodynamic Therapy

How does CRP/Matrix differ from traditional PRP?

CRP/Matrix offers several advantages over standard PRP:

  • We utilize patented and proprietary techniques during processing to create optimal levels of growth factors and cytokines.
  • We eliminate the use of pro-inflammatory red blood cells in most treatments.
  • The natural protein matrix we create serves as a biological scaffold for concentrated therapy and longer-lasting results.
  • Higher-volume blood draws yield higher concentrations of bioactive molecules.
  • We incorporate Photobiomodulation to photoactivate regenerative cells and photoinhibit inflammatory cells immediately before treatment.

Crafting Your Treatment Plan

Your regenerative CRP/Matrix therapy will begin with an informative consultation. This appointment will give you and your practitioner a chance to get to know one another and explore the various treatments that might help you find relief and restore your quality of life.

We’ll explain the benefits of CRP therapy and go over the ways that it can help you accomplish your regenerative goals, whether they involve restoring you hair, healing an injury, restoring your full range of motion, or addressing some other type of regenerative goal.

Finally, you’ll get to explore every aspect of your upcoming treatment. Your practitioner will give you a clear idea of what you can expect during and after your regenerative appointment, and we’ll provide you with a clear set of aftercare instructions.
