Regenerative hair growth offers patients a safe, effective, non-surgical method of hair restoration.

“At Docere Clinics, we employ Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), stem cells derived from your own fat or blood (ie: VSELS), exosomes, and other growth factors to stimulate hair to move from the dormant Telogen hair growth phase to the active Anagen hair growth phase.  More time spent in the Anagen phase means thicker, healthier hair in both men and women.”

This simple, “lunchtime” procedure can dramatically improve hair density and health in both men and women. While it will not grow new hair where there is no growth at all, it can strengthen waning follicles to turn thinning hair shafts into thick ones.

WHAT IS PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)?

PRP is essentially blood that has been centrifuged and has had the red and white blood cells removed.

Produced in just a few minutes from a normal venous blood draw, PRP contains a powerful mix of growth factors that can enhance tissue regeneration, healing and hair follicle growth. PRP has been studied widely and has established itself to be effective and safe as a medical treatment in the fields of oral surgery, orthopedics, cosmetic surgery and wound healing. Its use in hair restoration is relatively new but several studies have shown it to be an exciting non-chemical, non-pharmaceutical alternative to surgery.

HOW ARE STEM CELLS FROM YOUR FAT, EXOSOMES AND GROWTH FACTORS BENEFICIAL IN HAIR RESTORATION?

Docere Clinics is one of the early regenerative medicine clinics to offer you the option of using stem cells derived from your own fat tissue.

After performing a lipoaspiration procedure (miniature liposuction), the stem cell-rich, Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) is extracted from the whole adipose and these stem cells can be used in addition to PRP to further boost the regenerative process on a cellular level. Research has shown that adipose-derived stem cells (ADSC’s) have proteins that exert diverse skin rejuvenating effects, such as the stimulation of collagen synthesis, triggering the growth of new blood vessels, as well as hair growth stimulating effects. Exosomes and Growth Factors used topically are also getting a lot of buzz in the hair restoration space. Although relatively new, these biologics have become an important additional tool in the toolbox for restoring hair.

Blood is drawn in the office and spun in a special centrifuge. The PRP is separated from the blood.

A lipoaspiration is performed, usually on the flanks (love-handles), and the fat is processed over the course of 45 minutes to isolate the SVF.

The scalp is cleaned then local anesthesia is administered to numb the treatment area. The highly concentrated platelet-rich plasma is then injected (alone or in combination with your own stem cells).

The patient may drive home. Usually, no sedation or medication is required. The procedure takes about 1 hour for PRP alone and 2 hours for PRP with SVF.

WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS?

Improvements in hair growth typically become most evident between 4-8 months in conjunction with the typical hair growth cycle, although results may vary based upon patient age, medical history and other factors, including the possibility of no improvement. Any results shared on this website and the videos found on it do not reflect the results or experiences of every patient. We are in the process of phasing out the use of adipose-derived stem cells and plan to totally discontinue the use of fat by December 2021.
