Besides Hair Transplantation, Cheng Plastic Surgery offers an additional minimally invasive Hair Rejuvenation procedure using PRP, which stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma. Recently, PRP has been shown to promote hair growth in thinning scalp hair, and we are excited to offer this therapy to our patients with hair loss.


By drawing your blood, we are able to isolate the rich and valuable growth factors and proteins contained in your platelets. Injecting the purified PRP into your scalp, hair follicles are stimulated to grow. Most patients receive a second, and possibly a third, treatment three months after the first. New hair growth is apparent within six months after the treatment, and improvement continues for more than a year.

Your Hair Rejuvenation with PRP Procedure

After we take a sample of your blood, the blood is placed in a purification tube which disrupts the platelet membranes. A high speed centrifuge concentrates the contents of the platelet’s growth factors and proteins, and this “liquid gold” is then injected into the regions that need hair growth.

Once the blood has been treated, we numb the areas of the scalp to be treated and inject the PRP into the scalp using a tiny needle. Multiple injections are needed during each treatment.

Recovering from Hair Rejuvenation with PRP

One of the advantages of PRP is that the platelets also help to speed healing. That said, you may experience some minor soreness and swelling after a treatment. You can take pain medication, if necessary. Usually, non-prescription medications are sufficient.

We will give you instructions for caring for the treated areas, including when and how to wash your hair. Follow-up treatments may be necessary in the future to re-stimulate hair growth, but patients are very happy with the results of hair rejuvenation with PRP.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Friday, May 22, 2020:

We are officially back!

It’s been a long 9 weeks and we cannot wait to see all of our loyal and supportive patients back in our office! We are currently working with a more limited schedule than before, so please be patient as we navigate through this, together.

There are a few key changes we’ve made to our appointment protocol to ensure we are maintaining social distancing and following strict COVID-19 health and safety protocols - for you AND for us.

  1. Call from your car once you’ve arrived at the office for your appointment. A staff member will come out to greet you, take your temperature and conduct a short COVID-19 health screening to make sure you are in good health prior to entering the building. Our doors will remain locked during normal business hours to ensure only those who have been screened can enter.
  2. Please arrive at your appointment wearing a mask or protective face covering. We will not be able to bring you inside the office without one.
  3. We will then bring you inside, offer you hand sanitizer and bring you straight back into your designated room. We will at no point have any patients waiting in the lobby!
  4. You will be greeted by Dr. Elbert or Dr. Jacqueline wearing their Personal Protective Equipment deemed necessary by your specific treatment. (N95 mask, gloves, face shield or protective eyewear, etc.) We ask that you leave your mask on during the procedure, and only take it off if necessary to complete the treatment.
  5. All necessary transactions will be done in the room your treatment is being performed. This will avoid unnecessary back ups in the lobby.
  6. You will then be walked out through the back door of the office. This is the best way to keep all staff and patients socially distanced while maintaining one steady flow of traffic throughout the building.

And of course, all rooms will be heavily disinfected immediately after you leave just as we have always done prior to the pandemic. We will place a major focus on high-contact areas such as chairs, doorknobs, counter tops, mirrors and more.

 

Watch us take you through what your next appointment will look like:

We are still continuing to conduct Virtual Consultations if you prefer a quicker and no-contact experience.

Thank you for your continued support and we can't wait to see you again!

Kindest Regards,,

Dr. Elbert, Dr. Jacqueline and staff at Cheng Plastic Surgery
