PRP Therapy Hair Loss in Algonquin IL Area
Hair loss can occur in both men and women. At Dermatology Specialists of Illinois, we understand that hair loss can be embarrassing and distressing. We are proud to offer a revolutionary new treatment called Selphyl® platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) therapy for alopecia patients in the Algonquin, Woodstock, and Barrington, Illinois areas. This treatment harnesses the power of platelet-rich plasma, also called PRP, which uses your body’s own healing and regenerative capabilities to stimulate the hair follicles and generate new hair.

Platelet-rich plasma explained

PRP treatment is used in a wide variety of medical applications, including treatment for hair loss. The treatment involves taking a small blood sample, similar to the one you would get at your annual medical checkup, and then spinning the blood extremely fast in a centrifuge machine to separate the platelets from the other materials in the blood. Platelets are small cells that contain growth factors and help stimulate healing and regeneration in the body. We then inject the PRP into your scalp, where it stimulates new hair growth using your body’s own healing powers – no chemicals, medications, lasers, or surgery needed!

The Selphyl® PRP fibrin matrix technique

At Dermatology Specialists of Illinois, we have chosen to use the Selphyl PRP fibrin matrix technique for hair loss treatment because it is backed by sound scientific research. It offers patients many benefits:
  • The risk of contamination is virtually eliminated.
  • The potential for user error is also greatly minimized.
  • It preserves the largest number of viable platelets for the best end results.
  • The technique creates a multi-dimensional scaffold that helps protect the platelets while releasing growth factors so that patients can benefit from sustained hair regeneration.
  • It is effective – patients receiving PRP treatment have an average improvement of 31% in hair follicles per square centimeter.
  • The treatment is safe for patients because it uses each person’s own blood, thereby reducing the risk of allergic reactions or your body rejecting the treatment.
  • Since there are no incisions or sutures, patients are at much lower risk of infection after treatment.
