After care matters! Learn how vitamin intake can help with hair loss.

Is your hair thinning?  Do you wish there was something that could increase the density of your hair?  Well, now there is! Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is now being used to promote hair growth in areas where the hair is thinning. Human blood contains stem cells and other growth factors that help in tissue healing and regeneration. Our procedure Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix (PFRM) is an advancement in PRP and extends the activation time for maximum results.  It is a non-surgical procedure that utilizes your own blood to stimulate the hair follicle, increase hair growth and increased density.

 

After treatment/care is always an important step in aesthetic medicine.  You should always ensure you understand the post procedure process to provide for the best aesthetic outcome.  For this treatment, it has been found that taking a supplement can complement the PRFM procedure. The vitamin supplement is called Vivsiscal® Professional.  These supplements nourish hair follicles from within, strengthen and promote the growth of existing hair, and promote the growth of hair that has slowed or stopped growing.  Using these supplements will leave the hair stronger, healthier and more vibrant. The Viviscal Professional supplements contain the exclusive and clinically proven marine complex AminoMar® which is derived from key marine sources that promote hair growth and thickness.  It also contains Biotin, Vitamin C, Apple Extract and L-Cystine and L-Methionine. All these are ingredients aid in increasing hair density, diameter and growth. A study by Viviscal Professionals showed that 92% of women noticed an increase in their hair thickness by using these vitamins.

Suffering from Hair Loss? There is Hope!

For the last 3 years I have been experiencing thinning hair and hair loss. After purchasing several types of shampoo’s, topicals and vitamins, I did not see any change. Finally, I went to a dermatologist who performed a biopsy. I was diagnosed with age related thinning and alopecia. With this diagnosis I was left with little hope and began to look for wigs although, I refused to give up entirely.

At this same time Dr Schenden purchased a new system that specifically targets thinning hair and hair loss. The treatment is called PRFM (Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix) is an advancement to PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatment. Your blood is drawn and placed into a centrifuge that separates out the PRP.  Calcium Chloride is then added to the PRP building a fibrin matrix to increase the activation time of the PRP. The PRFM is injected into the scalp where the loss is occurring. Injecting into the scalp promotes new hair growth and stimulates your existing hair.

I was excited to try this and completed my first treatment in September 2017. Three treatments are recommended. I received my second treatment received 6 weeks later.  By December the hair loss had stopped and I am seeing small spikes of new hair growth. I went to my hair stylist in February 2018 and she couldn’t believe the change in my hair! I am so happy with my results. I just received my third treatment.

If you suffer from hair loss, call Dr. Michael J. Schenden’s office in Troy, Michigan to schedule your free consultation.

Are you suffering from thinning hair and hair loss? There is a new treatment that
may be right for you.

PRFM for Hair loss (The next generation of PRP).

Many practices use PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) as a hair growth treatment. Injecting your own
platelet rich plasma into the scalp promotes new hair growth and stimulates existing hair.
Research has shown positive results utilizing this technique. What if we could take it one step
further? The world of medicine is constantly improving and PRFM is proof. We now have the
ability to prolong the life of the PRP to help obtain better results. Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix
(PRFM) follows the same process of drawing your own blood and centrifuging it to obtain the
PRP. The difference is it doesn’t stop there. We then complete a second step which enhances
the PRP to form a matrix. This matrix extends the PRP activation time by a number of days.
Thus giving your hair more time to successfully absorb the growth factors to achieve maximum
results.
The procedure is an easy 30 minute procedure with no downtime. Three treatments are
suggested spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart for optimum results. As an aesthetic practice we are
solution based and we understand the emotional stress that can occur with hair loss. Call
today for your free consultation and let us help you. 248-524- 0620.
