Castellano Health Institute, the premier wellness center in Orange County, California, announced it is now performing PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Procedure for hair loss (androgenic alopecia). Dr. Castellano, who is known for optimizing patients with hormone deficiencies and helping his patients look and feel better while performing at their best is now able to help you grow your hair back.

It's known that by age 50, half of all men and women will experience significant hair loss. Up until recently, the only viable options were expensive hair transplants procedures or the use of chronic medication. Fortunately, science marches on, and now we have a better option for those with mild to moderate hair loss. Scientific proof is aplenty as recently discussed in the Journal Stem Cell Investigation, 2017. In this article, like in many others, they conclude that PRP is a simple, cost-effective and feasible treatment option with high patient satisfaction for Androgenic Alopecia (male pattern baldness).

They went on to say that for male pattern baldness there were no potential side effects compared to pre-existing therapeutic modalities. Simply put, PRP can help you regrow your hair. You no longer need to undergo a hair expensive hair transplants or take daily medications that can have significant side effects.

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) for hair loss is a procedure whereby a person’s own platelets are used to stimulate new hair growth. Platelets are small cells in your blood that contain up to 20 different types of growth factors that can help promote new hair growth. Blood is drawn from the patient and spun down in a special centrifuge to separate its components. We use a “double-centrifuge” technique that allows for the optimal concentration of growth factors in PRP. The PRP is then injected into the scalp where you have areas of hair loss. PRP has been shown to grow new hair as well as increase hair thickness and darkening of existing hair.
PRP for hair loss is safe and without any significant downtime. The PRP procedure is performed monthly for three months and then once a year for maintenance. Results are generally seen at one month and continue to improve over the next 3-6 months.

Dr. Castellano, Chief Medical Officer of Castellano Health Institute, had this to say, “I was in denial regarding how much hair I had lost in the last few years. The stress of running a business really took its toll on my hair. I was at the point of considering shaving my head. Fortunately, I researched PRP and was so impressed with the research results documented that I underwent the PRP procedure myself. So far the results I have seen are nothing short of impressive.”
