PRP For Hair Restoration


PRP For Hair Restoration

Growth factors in Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) have been used to facilitate wound healing. PRP is a safe and effective treatment option for male and female pattern hair loss.

Human blood is comprised primarily of red blood cells (RBC), as well as white blood cells (WBC), platelets, and plasma. Its effects on promoting hair growth make it useful for the medical treatment of hair loss. PRP can actually stimulate the stem cells (dermal papilla). PRP can be injected into the balding scalp to potentially stimulate thin (miniaturized) hair to grow into thicker (terminal) hairs. Patients with thinning, but not totally bald, areas would be the best candidates.

The injections may be uncomfortable. For those patients, we offer local anesthesia prior to the injections which helps to reduce the discomfort. Patients are monitored photographically to assess the benefits of therapy. Some improvement (in reversing miniaturization) can be expected in the first 2-6 months. The treatments must be continued periodically to maintain any improvement.

At Fountain of You MD, we use the highest quality “double spin “ centrifuge to obtain the highest yield PRP. We believe a multi-modal approach is best, combining multiple proven treatments to increase the odds of regrowth. Topical application of Finasteride (for men), Biotin, Minoxidil and Retinoids can dramatically increase the odds of healthy and safe follicle stimulation. Red light therapy is an additional option, and we offer a lower cost option for home use. Low level light therapy for just 6-8 minutes a night is a proven modality for follicle regeneration. “The shotgun approach” is the best way to increase the odds of regrowth.

Growth Hormone & Libido

Sexual dysfunction leads to rocky relationships. For thousands upon thousands of couples, lack of romance and sexual dissatisfaction have attributed to needless complications which often lead to divorce. Even perfectly happy couples can find sexual desire lacking from time to time.

The sad fact is that too many couples blame their problems in the bedroom on each other’s minds and hearts when the issue is the result of hormone imbalance. One major contributor to lack of libido and inhibited sexual function in both sexes is Human Growth Hormone Deficiency.

For most people, elevations in Human Growth Hormone levels cause a noticeable difference and increase in sex drive. There have been several studies on growth hormone’s effects on libido.

The reason why healthy human growth hormone (HGH) levels are so intrinsically connected to a healthy libido is primarily the result of the impact of circulation and exercise capacity. In both sexes, the sex organs require unimpeded blood flow to support and sustain sexual desire and ability. Low HGH levels also inhibit the pleasure associated with sexual activity, making it more problematic to achieve orgasm, and causing the resulting physical satisfaction to be lackluster.

In females, HGH promotes lubrication, making the vagina ready for sex. Blood flow also makes the clitoris and the millions of nerves throughout the vagina significantly more sensitive, increasing the pleasure and increasing the likelihood of satisfaction. HGH Deficiency not only reduces the desire for sex and the pleasure associated with the romantic activity, but it also creates discomfort, inhibiting an enjoyable love life.

At Fountain of You MD, we specialize in returning your HGH levels to that of a 20-30 year old. Specific blood tests and monitoring can help guide our team in promoting HGH secretion in a safe and effective manner. Sermorelin & Ipamorelin Therapy can help you recover your libido and feel young again.
