Samson Hair Restoration Announces Study of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Los Angeles, CA, March 30, 2012 --( Samson Hair Restoration announced today a study of the use of platelet rich plasma (PRP) in hair transplant procedures. The study will be conducted in Samson’s Los Angeles and San Diego offices in conjunction with Cytomedix, Inc. of Gaithersburg, MD, a leader in the field of regenerative medicine. Cytomedix will supply the equipment and supplies to conduct the study. Samson will perform the procedures and follow the patients for several months afterward to record the results.

Platelet rich plasma hair transplant procedures involve drawing blood from the patient, separating and concentrating the platelets through the use of a centrifuge, and then reintroducing the platelets to the patient in both the donor and recipient areas. Platelets contain growth factors that have been shown to significantly aid in healing.

The study, to be conducted by Samson’s Senior Surgeon, Dr. Carl Powell, is designed to investigate the specific benefits for hair transplant patients. “PRP has been used for a number of years in cosmetic surgery to reduce swelling, redness and speed healing. We’re hoping to see those benefits and others,” explained Dr. Powell. “With hair transplant procedures, the hair typically begins to grow around three months after the procedure. Hopefully, PRP will reduce that interval and get the hair growing much sooner, perhaps even right away,” continued Powell.

“Some studies suggest that PRP can reduce or eliminate the shock loss that some patients experience following a hair transplant procedure. This can be a big issue for those concerned about it. This is but one more of the many benefits this technology promises,” commented William McCullough, President of Samson Hair Restoration.
