The Platelet Rich Plasma Hair Restoration Project

“Give me a head with hair, long beautiful hair, shining, gleaming, streaming, axen, waxen. Give me down to there, hair, shoulder length or longer. Here baby, there, momma, everywhere, daddy, daddy. Hair, flow it, show it. Long as God can grow it, my hair.1”

Who doesn’t admire a ne head of hair? We covet it, envy it and even worship it. My late mother, on the day before she passed, woke from her morphine-induced “sleep,” looked around at all of us sitting by her bedside, and asked, “How’s my hair?” Her final words –true story. To be fair, Mom was always a Jackie Kennedy, never an Onassis, wannabe.

Millions of us aren’t so lucky. Hair loss is due to genetics, hormones, stresses and/or disease processes. No matter the cause, restoring a full head of hair is truly a “growth” industry.

Now, thanks to Platelet Rich Plasma technology, the same technology we use for the Vampire Facelift®, the Vampire Breastlift®, O-Shot®, P-Shot® and Joint Restoration®, we can, in combination with an FDA approved biomatrix that repairs and remodels damaged tissue, treat male and female pattern hair loss, alopecia areata and eyebrow hypotrichosis.

The Hair Restoration Project is a 90-minute procedure, and recovery time is minimal (usually being managed with over-the-counter ibuprofen or homeopathic remedies such as Arnica Montana and/or Boswellia). New hair sprouts as early as 2 months. Hair thickens and becomes noticeable at 4-to-8 months.

Who Responds to The Hair Restoration Project?

Each patient’s experience varies, but the most common conditions responsive to The Hair Restoration Project include:

  • Male Pattern Hair Loss: Especially early stage or any time hair thins on the scalp. We need at least a little natural “peach fuzz” for kindling or we won’t be successful.
  • Female Pattern Hair Loss: All stages of hair loss.
  • Hypotrichosis (fine/thinned hairs) of the eyebrows and beard.
  • Alopecia Areata and Alopecia Totalis.
  • Metabolic Etiology of Hair Loss: Medication induced, thyroid induced, iron deficiency.

Reviews in the scientific literature using our proprietary technique were uniformly positive.

“A mean increase of 33.6 hairs in the target area and a mean increase in total hair density of 45.9 hairs per cm2 compared with baseline values. No side effects were noted during treatment. The data clearly highlight the positive effects of PRP injections on male pattern hair loss 
and absence of major side effects.3”

“PRP was found to increase hair regrowth significantly and to decrease hair dystrophy 
and burning or itching sensation compared with TrA or placebo. Ki-67 
levels, which served as markers for cell proliferation, were 
significantly higher with PRP. No side-effects were noted during 
treatment.4”

Dr. Clearfield is one of a handful of select physicians 
trained, certified and licensed to administer 
these innovative 
methods. His proprietary Hormone Replacement Program was presented to more than 3,000 physicians at the May 2016 Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine’s 24th World Congress in Hollywood, Fla.
