HAIR LOSS TREATMENT WITH PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) INJECTIONS TREATMENT BY DR. ZUCKERMAN IN NEW YORK CITY


For this treatment, Dr. Zukcerman will inject platelet rich plasma (PRP), a component of the blood, into the scalp and is most commonly performed on men who would like to address male pattern baldness. Platelet Rich Plasma is generated by drawing blood from the patient and centrifuging it to remove red blood cells. It has a greater concentration of growth factors than whole blood, and has been used to encourage a brisk healing response in several medical specialties and for rejuvenation in plastic surgery and dermatology. Initially, PRP hair loss treatment requires monthly applications for six months, and aftewards a maintenance treatment once per quarter.
