DiStefano Hair Restoration is now offering Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy with BioD. This is commonly referred to as a stem cell hair transplant. This innovative new therapy is based on research that has determined that platelets and plasma contain a number of hormones and growth factors that can stimulate hair follicles to grow.
BioD is a a stem-cell-containing Extra Cellular Matrix that is created from the human placenta.
Stem cell hair transplant therapy with BioD is ideal for men and women who have thinning hair, or men who are experiencing male pattern baldness. It is also regularly
The hair restoration surgeon begins the stem cell hair transplant therapy with BioD by drawing three or four vials of blood from the patient. It is then spun in a centrifuge which separates the blood from the platelets and plasma. After the platelets and plasma are prepared, it is mixed with BioD and they are injected just under the scalp in areas where hair growth is desired.
PRP is safe because the patient’s own blood products are used so there is no chance of rejection. And because BioD is made from a human placenta it is automatically protected from rejection.
PRP with stem cell therapy has long been used by orthopedists to promote growth and healing of tendons. It has also been used by opthalmologists, oral surgeons and other physicians to promote healing and generate new growth.
