Dr. Jones met with Dr. Greco in Florida last week to discuss the potential of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) as a hair loss treatment.
Dr. Jones announced today that he will start treating patients with PRP some time this month, on a small scale trial basis. The process is fairly straight forward and non-invasive. It will be performed in his Toronto/Oakville clinic in Canada.
Please note that the use of Platelet Rich Plasma for hair regeneration is a new concept. Dr. Greco seems to have some success in this area. However, there is no guarantee what kind of results (or side effects) one may expect from the treatment.
The process involves using the patient’s own blood as growth factors. It is a not a surgery. Dr Jones will be using the exact same technique and protocol used by Dr. Greco. At this point, he has ordered enough supplies to treat 15 patients on a trial basis. There will be a small fee for the procedure, but it is strictly to cover the cost of the supplies and overhead required to administer the treatment. Pictures and results will be posted on Dr. Jones’ website as well as on Hairsite so that everyone will be able to follow the progress. Dr. Jones has no financial interest in the trial.
Dr. Jones has agreed to do a small Q&A with everyone in the forum. Please post your questions in this thread. Be respectful. No bickering.
Anyone who is interested in this treatment at Dr. Jones’ clinic, please email email@example.com or visit Dr. Jones’ website.
