Crutchfield Dermatology Announces a New Platelet Rich Plasma Combination Treatment for Hair Loss

Crutchfield Dermatology Announces the Successful Treatment of Hair Loss using a Novel combination of Platelet Rich Plasma, Prostaglandins, Botox, Lasers, Essential Oils, Minoxidil, Finasteride, and Scalp Conditioning Treatments.

Charles Crutchfield III M.D., a nationally recognized Board Certified Dermatologist and Clinical Professor of Dermatology, has developed a new and successful system to treat alopecia using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, in conjunction with several other leading-edge modalities for the treatment of hair loss and thinning hair.

As a non-surgical medical procedure to treat hair loss and thinning hair, PRP Therapy has been a well recognized successful treatment over the past several years. Charles E. Crutchfield III M.D. has seen significant results in patients seeking treatment for hair loss (Alopecia). “Using the patient’s own blood, we create a concentration of Platelet Rich Plasma to promote hair growth and rejuvenation.” Charles E. Crutchfield III M.D. explains the treatment and its benefits:

“PRP therapy uses the patient’s blood to create the ideal formula of Platelet Rich Plasma. We start by drawing a blood sample and spinning the blood to separate its components: red blood cells, plasma, and platelet-rich plasma. Injecting the enriched platelet-rich plasma (containing concentrated amounts of growth factors, cytokines, and platelets), into the treatment area. This PRP treatment stimulates the inactive hair follicles into an active growth phase.”

“In addition to using PRP, we also treat the hair loss with a combination of other modalities that work synergistically. It is not “one size fits all”. We have developed a custom design a program for the patient for their maximum hair growth programs.

Crutchfield uses a combination of the following for maximal hair growth:

  •     Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
  •     Crutchfield Dermatology Hair Tonic (containing prostaglandins, finasteride, and minoxidil)
  •     Botox injections
  •     Hair Growth Vitamins and minerals
  •     Essential Oils that promote hair growth
  •     Keravive scalp conditioning treatments
  •     Laser treatments for hair growth
  •     Anti-inflammatory Scalp Program

We find that this combination of treatments works better than anything that we have tried in the past and we are stull refining the components.

Dr. Crutchfield has seen a significant increase in the number of patients inquiring about this therapy. Estimates are that nearly 100 million Americans suffer from hair loss. PRP for Hair Loss Therapy and the additional program of other modalities developed at Crutchfield Dermatology is a breakthrough treatment option because it is a safe, reliable treatment that is short and non-surgical. The recovery period is fast, and the results are natural.

“In our experience, although PRP and some of the other components are not yet FDA approved for Alopecia, we have a success rate of approximately 75% with our designer hair growth program.

I recommend a series of injections to be done monthly, for 4-6 months and our other programs. Once patients achieve the level of hair regrowth they are happy with, we recommend a topical treatment program to maintain and extend the PRP treatment success and recommend a PRP treatment every 6 or 12 months for maintenance. ”

The hair loss and hair thinning treatment program with PRP and the other components works well for both men and women. It is primarily designed to treat androgenetic Alopecia, but we have had success in alopecia areata, scarring alopecia, and hair loss associated with stress (telogen effluvium), also.

As the testing continues and the components are adjusted, we will submit a report.
