FAQs

 WHAT IS PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)?

Platelets from your own blood contain growth factors, cytokines, and proteins that trigger cell repair and regeneration, rejuvenate skin tissue and stimulate hair follicles for enhanced growth. Those growth factors give instructions to your tissue to regenerate and multiply. All fields of medicine are now utilizing PRP for would healing to speed up recovery time and regrow healthier, stronger tissue.

WHY VAMPIRE HAIR RESTORATION®?

Options, like prescription drugs, are often partially effective and carry the potential for unwanted side effects. Surgical hair restoration can be expensive and does not treat the underlying medical problems.

Now there is an affordable way for you to improve your hair density without surgery or harmful side effects. Vampire Hair Restoration®, proprietary 3 treatment protocol of PRP, works well to stimulate inactive or newly aging follicles. It has become a popular treatment to prevent follicular decline, restore follicular health, minimize hair loss and improve hair thinning.

As PRP use in medicine has evolved through continuing research and studies, PRP is now recognized for its role as a natural method for skin, scalp, and hair stimulation.

WHAT IS VAMPIRE HAIR RESTORATION ®?

This 3 treatment protocol offers sub-dermal and intra-dermal therapy for preventing or reducing hair loss. It has great potential to stimulate the growth of hair follicles for both men and women. The growth factors in the platelets stimulate the follicles to grow hair. The hair follicles in the resting phase (telogen) may be pushed into growth, and this will appear as new hair growth. Treatment will not cause new hair follicles to grow where there were none before. Treatment will stimulate neo-vascularization and new cell growth.

Vampire Hair Restoration® is used to achieve natural looking results. During this patented, non-surgical procedure, your own PRP is injected with a small needle into your scalp and applied during micro- needling. The growth factors work to naturally stimulate the growth of your hair. This procedure helps take care of hair loss or hair thinning in both men and women and is an alternative or addition to medicines and surgical procedures.

THE PROCEDURE

This quick procedure involves the collection, concentration and application of your body’s own platelets using a very easy 6-step process.

Step 1
A small amount of blood is collected and is placed into a centrifuge.

Step 2
After 10 minutes of centrifugation, the platelets are concentrated and drawn up into a syringe.

Step 3
The scalp is numbed and cleansed lightly.

Step 4
Using a tiny needle, PRP is injected strategically into your scalp in the areas that need improvement.

Step 5
The scalp is micro-needled and PRP serum is now applied in the micro channels.

HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?

The entire session takes about 1 hour.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE RECOMMENDED?

Although results can be sufficient in 1 treatment, the treatment protocol involves 3 sessions in order to best restore the health of the hair follicles. To maintain optimal results, we usually recommend 1 treatment per year to maintain the health of the hair follicles.

WHAT IS TREATMENTS SPACING?

The 3 treatments are spaced 8-12 weeks apart.

IS THE PROCEDURE PAINFUL?

No. Local anesthetic is used. Treatment is comfortable and well tolerated by most.
Some patients may experience temporary mild discomfort during treatment for 10 minutes at most.

IS THE PROCEDURE SAFE?

Yes. It is a safe procedure without any common side effects. PRP treatments are considered completely safe and natural as you are using growth factors from your own body with a sterile technique, so there is almost no chance of blood infection or an adverse immune response.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM VAMPIRE HAIR RESTORATION?

The treatment not only promotes hair growth but also strengthens hair follicles. Treatment can stimulate hair follicles to produce longer, thicker and healthier hair fibers. While it doesn’t actually regrow new hair follicles, it works well to reverse the miniaturization of hair follicles that happens with male or female pattern baldness.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Patients may notice a fuzz appearance after one session. Results are becoming noticeable within eight weeks following treatment but may take 6-12 months for full improvement.

IS THERE ANY RECOVERY TIME?

No. There is no downtime or any long recovery process. You shouldn’t wash your hair until the day after treatment. Then you can wash and style it as your normally do. In addition, it is advised to avoid using any harsh dyes or chemicals on your hair for 48 hours. You may experience some discomfort, redness, tightness of the scalp, and light swelling from the injections/micro-needling for 1-2 days, which can be managed with an analgesic like Tylenol. This generally resolves within 48 hours. It is best to avoid ibuprofen, aspirin, Advil, Aleve and other NSAIDS, if possible.

HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST?

The results of this procedure typically last 1-2 years, but this varies based on many factors. Results have been maintained without additional injections for up 2 years in many patients Research on the effectiveness, safety and satisfaction of this procedure are positive. Research on the longevity of this treatment are ongoing.

WHO SHOULD OPT FOR VAMPIRE HAIR RESTORATION®?

People who seek to prevent hair loss, who have thinning hair, and men and woman with alopecia can all benefit from it.

WHO CAN’T OPT FOR VAMPIRE HAIR RESTORATION®?

Though treatment yields great results for people suffering from hair thinning, it’s not for everyone. People who have lost all hair cannot undergo this treatment as it does not help grow new hair follicles on a bald patch. It can only make the existing thinning hair thicker by strengthening the hair follicles.

IS THIS A CURE FOR BALDNESS?

Vampire Hair Restoration® is not a cure for baldness. The genetic medical problem will always remain. However, there is evidence that regular treatments can significantly slow down the effects of Androgenic Alopecia and works to increase hair density.

WHAT IS ALOPECIA AREATA AND DOES VAMPIRE HAIR RESTORATION® HELP GROW HAIR?

Alopecia areata is considered an autoimmune disease, in which the immune system mistakenly attacks the hair follicles, the structures from which hairs grow.

Although there is no cure for alopecia areata, treatment can help stimulate hair growth, however; PRP will not prevent new patches or actually cure the underlying disease.

DOES INSURANCE COVER TREATMENT?

No. Treatment is considered cosmetic and elective. Insurance companies do not cover the cost of this treatment.

COST OF PROCEDURE

The cost of the 3 treatment protocol is $1900.

HAIR LOSS

Many men and women experience hair loss as they age. And we are seeing more hair loss in women in their 20’s and 30’s than ever.

Thinning hair can be devastating for women and men of any age. Hair loss can cause depression and emotional issues, lead to low self-esteem, and inhibit quality of life.

Hair loss experienced with pregnancy, stress, and certain medications, is usually only temporary. It is normal to lose around 100 hairs a day, and this typically dose not result in thinning hair. When hair loss is not temporary, patients should have a thorough evaluation with a doctor. Possible causes of Alopecia (Hair Loss):

Hormone Imbalance:

  • Testosterone deficiency or excess
  • Thyroid deficiency or excess
  • Pregnancy

Prescription medications:

  • Birth control
  • Blood pressure medications (B-blockers)
  • H2 Blockers (Pepcid, Zantac)
  • Antidepressants

Over-processing hair:

  • Hair color
  • Chlorine from swimming pools
  • Harsh shampoo and products

Lifestyle factors including:

  • Poor diet-low protein or extreme calorie restriction
  • Excessive alcohol use
  • Iron deficiency
  • Dry scalp
  • Inflammation, which can be from physical and emotional stress, leaky gut, adrenal dysfunction, insulin resistance, obesity, toxin exposure. Inflammation leads to decreased blood flow, oxygenation, and nutrient delivery and absorption at the level of the hair follicle, causing hair loss.
  • Physical and emotional stress can result in shedding of hair a few months later

Androgenic Alopecia, which is a genetic condition, is the main type of hair loss in both women and men. In men, hair loss is characterized by a receding hairline. Women experience a thinning over the entire scalp and the crown.

We see significant hair loss in women who are testosterone deficient.
Many women with thinning hair report increased hair growth on testosterone pellet therapy.

Rarely, women with extremely high levels of androgens may experience hair loss if they genetically convert testosterone to DHT in the scalp/hair follicle. This side effect of testosterone replacement can be managed with the supplement Saw Palmetto (anti-inflammatory), or prescription medication Finasteride which decreases conversion to DHT (negative effect on libido can be a side effect).

Start treating your hair loss by making an appointment with one of our practitioners for a thorough consultation and appropriate lab work. After a discussion of your medical history and patient profile, your practitioner will determine if treatment is likely to be effective and, if so, will recommend the most effective treatment plan.
