We are excited to announce that after a year of research and development we are going to begin rolling out the newest and most advanced treatment for female hair loss, Optimal Platelet Concentration™ Therapy.  Optimal Platelet Concentration™ Therapy combines the power of the strongest Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy tools with the precision of an in-office platelet counter, to provide customized treatments for every patient at the optimal platelet concentration for blood vessel repair and hair restoration.

As PRP Therapy has become more popular over the past two years, patients have been lead to believe that all PRP is the same.  We spent the last 12 months researching and testing the top PRP systems available and it was extremely surprising how different the systems performed.  There was significant variability in platelet concentrations and platelet recovery.  In short, all PRP is definitely not the same.  However, Optimal Platelet Concentration™ Therapy is not just about using the top available system, as the next step is the most important in the treatment.  Recent research has shown the importance of delivering 1.4 billion to 1.6 billion platelets per ML in the final platelet solution.  This concentration range is conducive to angiogenesis, which leads to blood vessel regeneration and hair follicle rejuvenation, and it is important to not be below or above the range.  With Optimal Platelet Concentration™ Therapy, we can ensure that the final platelet solution is within this ideal range.  Based on our testing, many PRP systems are unable to even reach this threshold.  With Optimal Platelet Concentration™ Therapy we will run a platelet count of your blood during your treatment, which will allow us to optimize your final platelet solution and ensure it is in the optimal platelet concentration range.

Over the coming weeks you will hear more about this innovative treatment as we continue to roll it out.  To learn more, schedule an appointment with our staff and find out if Optimal Platelet Concentration™ Therapy is right for you.
