At Imber, multiple treatment modalities are available to stimulates hair follicles including injectables, microneedling, topicals and light therapy. After the follicle is “woken up”, hair growth starts and results are typically seen in 3 months as it takes that amount of time for the new hair to reach the surface and be seen. Your thicker, fuller hair growth will be the envy of all your buddies at the locker room bar!
Platelet Rich Plasma
PRP uses your body’s own blood. Roughly 60ml of blood is drawn and centrifuged by Imber’s dual spin centrifuge to concentrate the platelets 5-9 times which are then injected into the scalp (Note: Single spin devices produce only 2.5-3 times platelet concentration). Once injected, platelets release numerous growth factors that in turn lead to the migration of your body’s own stem cells. These cells are thought to promote regeneration and growth of the hair follicle and improve surrounding blood supply through angiogenesis. This repair may continue for 3 months! Combined with microneedling, results are maximized. PRP treatments are usually 1 time a month for 3 months then every 6-12 months.
Extra Cellular matrix (ECM)
Works by recruiting and effectively changing adult stem cells into progenitor cells. Increasing blood flow to the hair follicles is also seen with this treatment. Because of their regenerative properties, these products have been FDA approved for use of wound healing. Off label use has shown promising results when combined with PRP for hair on head, eyebrows, and beard. Hair growth can continue to improve for up to one year after 3 treatments that are each 1 month apart.
