Stephanie was a previous patient of Medi Tresse in Boston, MA. Her hair loss started at the age of 10 years old, and she is currently 17 years old. Her hair loss started as a result of chemotherapy and radiation. She was previously taking a regimen of topical minoxidil and laser cap treatments for 2 years with moderate results until her results started to plateau.
The patient came to Medi Tresse to see if there was anything else that could be done for her hair loss due to cancer treatment. She booked another consultation with a Medi Tresse hair loss specialist for her hair loss from chemotherapy and radiation.
With all of our treatments, we have three main goals: stop further loss, make the hair you have thicker, healthier, and if possible regrow hair. We like to remind all of our patients that attaining any of these goals is a success.
Stephanie and the Medi Tresse Boston team decided that the best treatment plan for her would be to add Painless PRP therapy to her regimen.
Applied to the scalp, Painless PRP therapy utilizes a medical device that delivers powerful mist jet streams that infuse PRP into the scalp through hydroporation, turning the PRP into droplets and entering the scalp subdermally. Painless PRP treatments are 100% non-invasive and comfortable.
Studies have shown that utilizing two or more treatments provides a better result than the result from just one treatment on its own, as they target different aspects of the scalp and hair follicle, resulting in an effective, safe, and promising option for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia. Most treatments take approximately 6 to 12 months to see significant results.
The before and growing photos below are five months apart. Stephanie is happy with the current results and is excited to continue her treatment plan of Minoxidil, Painless PRP Therapy, and the laser cap device with the Medi Tresse Boston team.
