…and why no pictures…

Good news, it appears that more and more doctors are using it, it must be at least somewhat successful otherwise why would anyone bother to do it?

Dr. Choi’s been offering it for the last year or so. He also knows of the HT doc who has been using it, as well, during surgery.

Just because somebody offers a service, doesn’t mean it works. The main motive is $$$$$. So far, there really isn’t any evidence that this does much of anything. Not saying it doesn’t. I just haven’t seen anything that would make me spend money on it.

I wonder if it is the same method as Greco or Jones

The first picture has a round white spot over the crown area, looks like someone used a round brush from photoshop over it it

mmm it looks legit to me


#12

theres absolutely no change other than the patients hair is slightly longer and combed forward.

No difference. Why do these “doctors” keep posting simple photographs? The only evidence that is objective and honest is a hair count. None of them ever post that.

"How much science does this procedure have behind?

Although PRP has sufficient theoretical scientific basis to support its use in hair restoration, hair restoration using PRP is at its infancy. Clinical evidence in terms of randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled trials or meta-analysis is none existent or weak at best."

That’s all I need to read.

Rly, there is slight improvement, but for 450? ouch. Minox can do better, ketoconazole as well. Fin for sure.

We have to credit dr. Choi for legit pictures. They are under exact the same lighting and angle and the hair are ALMOST same length.

At first sight there seems to be little to no improvement but if you look carefully i think there is a slight improvement. Not something i would spend 450$ dollars for but i think that if this PRP has room for imporovement(adding growth factors and inhibitors) it could result in a viable hair loss treatment.

agree on both points…Although i think the improvement is actually better than minox, since the yield is 60% for PRP whereas it is about 30% for minox as i recall. Anyway, i’d be ok the spend 450$ for this if there is no risk at all. What is the time interval between the two photos btw ???
