Subdermal Depo PRP

A new PRP injection technique may improve outcomes for patients with androgenic alopecia.
Subdermal Depo PRP

Androgenic alopecia (AA) is one of the most prevalent aesthetic concerns, affecting an estimated 30% of men over the age of 40. Building on the potential promise of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to reduce hair loss, I have developed a new technique that involves injecting a bolus of PRP into the subcutis to reverse the effects of AA. The technique—which I refer to as Rapaport Subdermal Depo PRP Injection—has become one of my favorite and most gratifying cosmetic procedures, as I see immediate changes in my patients’ emotional states once their hair is improved.

Hair Regeneration Method Induces New Human Hair Growth

Hair Regeneration Method Induces New Human Hair Growth

Researchers at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) have devised a hair restoration method that can generate new human hair growth, rather than simply redistribute hair from one part of the scalp to another. The approach could significantly expand the use of hair transplantation to women with hair loss, who tend to have insufficient donor hair, as well as to men in early stages of baldness. The study was published online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (October 21, 2013).

A dearth of new research highlights a range of potential solutions to androgenic alopecia.

Research on hair regrowth in patients with androgenic alopecia (AGA) has spiked since 2010. Most recently, a group of researchers from Tokyo University of Science in Chiba, Japan, bioengineered hair follicle germs using adult epithelial stem cells and dermal papilla cells replicated in the lab. They then implanted the bioengineered follicles into the back skin of hairless mice. The result was fully functional hair follicles and normal hair growth. (Nature Communications, April 2012).

The ARTAS System Gains Support

Restoration Robotics, a privately held medical device company, has raised $41 million in Series C financing to support its ARTAS System for hair follicle harvesting. Clarus Ventures led the financing and was joined by investors Sutter Hill Ventures, Alloy Ventures and Interwest Partners. The ARTAS System is a physician-controlled, computer-assisted technology that enables harvesting of hair follicles during hair restoration procedures, including follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique.
