Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment for the scalp is an innovative, non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions. PRP is a concentration derived from your own blood that carries a large amount of bioactive proteins, including growth factors that are crucial to initiating and accelerating tissue repair and regeneration. During the procedure, your blood is drawn and then processed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets and plasma from the other components of the blood. The PRP is then injected into the areas of the scalp that need treatment. Dr. Arash Akhavan was one of the first physicians to offer PRP injections for the scalp to his patients in New York City.
AnteAGE is a newer procedure we offer to our patients. AnteAGE is a solution made of high concentrations of growth factors isolated from bone marrow cells grown in a lab. AnteAGE has a higher concentration of useful growth factors than PRP.
