Press Release: Leonard Hair Transplant Associates Adds Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy to Combat Hair Loss
Newton Centre, MA – (February 27, 2019) – Leonard Hair Transplant Associates (LHTA), a trusted leader in providing hair restoration services across New England for nearly 30 years, proudly announces the addition of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy as its latest treatment option. This blood-based procedure is medically proven, fast and safe.
“From its foundation, Leonard Hair has proven itself to be a leader in the science of hair loss prevention and treatment, and we pride ourselves on being diligent in evaluating all emerging treatment options,” said Dr. Matthew Lopresti, Chief Surgeon of Leonard Hair Transplant Associates. “After careful study, platelet rich plasma treatments are medically and scientifically proven to provide growth factors , which stimulate hair follicles and promote stabilization and regrowth.”
The PRP process begins with drawing blood from a patient. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge, which spins the blood, separating the plasma from the red and white blood cells. The trained medical staff at LHTA then injects the plasma, combined with a stem cell generating additive called ACell, into the patient’s scalp.
“The injection goes into the base of the hair follicles, providing stimulation, which promotes restoration of healthy follicles and hair growth,” said Lacey Sellati, a Physician’s Assistant at Leonard Hair Transplant Associates who specializes in PRP treatments. “At LHTA, we add ACell to our treatment protocol which creates a more stable scaffolding for the PRP to effectively do its job. This is a huge point of differentiation between our methodology and other practices.”
“PRP is an outpatient treatment, and patients can expect to be in and out in about 60 minutes,” said Dr. Robert Leonard, Founder of Leonard Hair Transplant Associates. “As with all of our treatment options, early detection and action is key. PRP and ACell injections work best when combined with other restorative treatments, including Rogaine Foam®, Propecia®, and the CapillusRX™ laser therapy cap. Patients are also able to combine treatments for a multifaceted approach to achieve optimal results.”
LHTA maintains offices in Warwick, Rhode Island; Boston, Worcester, Braintree, and Newton Centre, Massachusetts; and Salem, New Hampshire. For further information, please contact LHTA at 617-965-7400 or visit www.hairdr.com
