Dr. Gregory Pistone, and the rest of his team at Pistone Hair Restoration, offer a multi-modal range of surgical and non-surgical solutions (such as Neograft hair transplant in the Philadelphia area) for patients who are experiencing varying degrees of hair loss.
Men and women who are not yet entirely bald, but are experiencing androgenic alopecia (thinning hair) and want to treat their condition without surgery, can come to Pistone Hair Restoration for standalone treatment with platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
PRP is a blood serum comprised of plasma enriched with platelets, which results in a high concentration of healing and growth factors that stimulate tissue repair and regeneration.
The technology originated in sports medicine to facilitate the healing of injured tissue, and has been used in other fields like neurosurgery, cosmetic surgery and orthopedics.
Recently, studies have suggested that PRP can be used to stimulate hair growth in patients with thinning hair.
During PRP treatment at Pistone Hair Restoration, the patient’s own blood is drawn and centrifuged using the AutoloGel system.
Then, after topically numbing the scalp to make sure that the patient is comfortable, Dr. Pistone will use a microneedling device to make small incisions in the scalp. PRP is then sprayed over the scalp in order to stimulate hair growth. Research suggests that returning for PRP treatment every three to four months yields the most effective results.
PRP is a safe, non-surgical method of hair loss treatment, with no extensive downtime, stitches or scarring. Since the procedure uses the patient’s own PRP, there is no risk of rejection.
Dr. Pistone attends to every patient personally, and will consult with them first in order to determine that PRP is the correct treatment and answer any questions that the patient may have.
