Q: What is the optimal concentration of platelets in PRP for hair regrowth?
A: Research suggests that a concentration of ~1.5M platelets/microliter is the “sweet spot” for stem cell proliferation & migration (Haynesworth 2002) and new blood vessel formation (Giusti 2009) and the addition of ECMs like ACell or BioD provide a stronger and longer response to treatment than PRP alone.*
In other words, “not all PRP for hair growth is created equal.” Skill, knowledge, equipment and experience all need to come together to provide a substantial result, instead of just “hope” for your hair loss. In this photo you can see the ‘before’ and ‘after’ results of Dr. Bauman’s centrifugation and separation protocol which delivered 7.5ml of more than 1.5M platelets/microliter for this PRP patient who started with a baseline platelet concentration of 246,000 platelets/microliter. 1ml of BioD placental extracellular matrix ECM was added to the final PRP before application.
Dr. Bauman has taught hundreds of medical professionals how to properly prepare and apply PRP for hair regrowth using his proprietary protocols and measure results using the HairCheck cross sectional hair bundle measurement device through his HairCoach™ certification program.
