Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is by far the most exciting advancement in the treatment of female hair loss in the last five years.  The studies have proved how effective it can be, and the results truly speak for themselves.  As one of the first medical practices to offer this treatment for hair loss in New England, we have started to see more practices offer PRP Therapy leading to this common question from patients, how is the PRP Therapy at Medi Tresse different from the PRP Therapy at other practices?

The truth is, because we do not know how these practices are performing the PRP Therapy, we are unable to directly compare our treatments to theirs. However, there are a couple important points to consider when comparing PRP Therapy at different practices.

First, the main process of PRP Therapy is separating the platelet rich plasma portion of the blood from the other parts of the blood.  Not only do we want to isolate the platelet rich plasma, but we want the concentration of platelets to be significantly increased as compared to your normal blood.  In order to do this, we use a special PRP kit that assists in the process, and these kits vary by practice. We truly believe that our PRP kits are the best in the industry and provide us with the highest possible concentration and highest quality preparation of the PRP.

Secondly, it is important to consider the practice’s knowledge of female hair loss.  PRP Therapy should only be given to those patients that are the best candidates for success, as it is not the best treatment option for all types of hair loss.  At Medi Tresse we are the female hair loss experts, and this knowledge and experience cannot be duplicated.  We only recommend PRP Therapy to patients that we believe will see results. We feel this is important so that our patients can trust our recommendations while we still keep their goals in mind.
