Hair Regrowth - PRP Cell Therapy
Step 1 Clinic Visit
Receive your first session of PRP along with Micro-needling instructions in the clinic. The process takes approximately 45 minutes.
Step 2 In-home Maintenance
Return home with a micro-needling device and micro-needle the scalp in the area of hair loss once per week until returning to clinic in 30-days.
Step 3 Repeat Process
In 30-days you return to the clinic for another PRP session and evaluation. At this time topical medications may be adjusted.

Hair Regrowth with Platelet-rich Plasma & Micro-needling
It’s said that hair loss effects 80% of men and up to 50% of women. Get help here.
Evidenced-based Cellular Therapy for Hair Follicle Regeneration
For many years researchers have known that specific cellular protocols combined with micro-needling stimulation and medications like Minoxidil improve male and female pattern hair loss. Our procedures can also improve overall follicle health, and the thickness and richness of the epidermis, slow or stop hair loss, and stimulate new hair growth.
Note: Once follicles are completely destroyed, hair growth cannot occur. However, when you are in the transition stages of male or female pattern hair loss (baldness), there is a very good chance that this protocol can slow significantly your hair-loss, or stop it completely, and encourage fuller hair growth for 12-24 months beyond treatment. Continuous “at home” maintenance can continue the process much longer.
Louisville Hair Regrowth: Why & How does it Work?
Our protocol was developed following three key research studies which observed efficacy is stimulating hair rejuvenation. In addition, our protocol follows knowledge gained from years of human and animal studies using cellular therapies like Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cells.
Stem Cell Proliferation Stimulated by Microneedles (HIPR Protocol)
Stimulation and mobilization of stem cells was observed in a 2013 research study with micro-needling. It works based on the principle of wound healing. Micro-injury induced by micro-needling creates a cascade of events that mimic natural cell regeneration.
This happens in stages. First is a homeostasis process (reaction), then comes an inflammatory response (inflammation), followed by cell proliferation (stimulation), and finished with remolding (formation). In essence, the regenerative effect from micro-needling is widely known among research experts in cellular therapy based on these stages of natural healing. It stimulates your own stem cells in a regenerative process.
This whole process is known as Homeostasis, Inflammation, Proliferation (of cells), and Remodeling (HIPR). The remodeling stage is known to last for 1 year or longer. Micro-needling promotes the rejuvenation of skin and hair follicles without scarring or permanent damage.
The micro-injury from micro-needling isn’t deep enough to do any long term damage, it’s just deep enough to wake up the cells in that area so they can activate regenerative resources.
This is a great way to keep the cells surrounding your skin and hair follicles stimulated and fresh.

Platelet-rich Plasma PRP: The Effect of PRP in Hair Regrowth
The results of a randomized trial on the effects of PRP in hair regrowth were published in September 2015. The study looked at the safety and efficacy of using autologous (self-derived) platelet-rich plasma for the stimulation of hair regrowth. The PRP treatment was administered at 30-day intervals.
The results were:
- measurable hair regrowth
- proliferation of cells
Following three (3) treatments, patients noticed a measurable improvement in hair regrowth. Hair density increased by 45.9 hairs per cm² compared to baseline values. No negative side effects were reported or observed. Microscopic analysis showed an increase in epidermis thickness and the number of hair follicles 2 weeks following the last Platelet-rich Plasma PRP treatment.
Relapse of adrogenic alopecia did occur in 4 out of the 23 patients in the study after 12 months.
Note: Relapse is best avoided with proper nutrition, nutrient supplementation and at home weekly maintenance-micro-needling based on the HIPR Protocol discussed above. The HIPR Protocol is the micro-needling of the area approximately once per week following initial PRP therapy.
All processing of platelet-rich plasma done at our treatment centers is achieved with the Harvest SmartPrep Technology. This technology has demonstrated superiority and consistency over other leading models. This Multicellular Processing System delivers the highest concentration and yield of platelets when compared to 12 other systems, as shown by the data here.

Prescribed Medications for Hair Loss / Hair Regrowth
In addition, we also prescribe specific compounded topical blends consisting of Minoxidil, Finasteride, Latanoprost, Ketoconazole among others. Below is a list and description of old and new prescription based compounded pharmacy therapies for hair loss.
Minoxidil for Hair Loss Treatment
Minoxidil has been sold over the counter to treat hair loss for men and women since the 1990s. It’s believed to create new hair growth by increasing cutaneous blood flow to shrinking hair follicles. Sometimes this causes short term shedding, with new and thicker hairs being replaced in the anagen phase of hair growth. It is best used during the early phase of alopecia.
Finasteride combined Minoxidil for Hair Loss Treatment
Finasteride acts by reducing DHT levels which inhibits miniaturization of hair follicles. Oral Finasteride can have side-effects like decreased libido. We generally avoid oral Finasteride. However, scalp-applied (topical) Finasteride can be considered to help improve hair density without sexual side-effects. Combined with Minoxidil, the two make a solid one-two punch at stalling hair loss and fostering new hair regrowth.
Latanoprost for Hair Loss Treatment
In the May 2012 issue of the American Academy of Dermatology, it was reported that Latanoprost mimics naturally-derived molecules known as prostaglandins. This was shown to significantly increase hair density on the scalp after 24 weeks of treatment.
Ketoconazole for Hair Loss Treatment
Ketoconazole is an anti-fungal medication. It is also believed to be effective at stimulating new hair growth. It is helpful at countering the effects of DHT, which causes hair follicles to shrink.
Besides these treatments, there are other options the physician may try for time-to-time based on the specific issues surrounding the patient’s hair loss. That said, these are known to be the most commonly used and effective treatment for male and female pattern hair loss. Combined with micro-needling for stem cell proliferation, and Platelet-rich Plasma, for direct concentrated growth factors, our protocol is the best we know of for practical evidence-based therapy for hair regrowth.
Treatment at our Louisville Downtown Hair Loss Regrowth Facility usually takes 4 clinical visits over a 3-6 month period. One three of those visits PRP will be applied to the scalp area where hair-loss exists. Follow up PRP is generally done 21-30 days following the last treatment.
Additional Information – Causes of Hair-Loss
More than 95% of hair loss in men is associated with Adrogenic Alopecia (AGA). Women can also be effected to AGA hair loss as well, but generally to a lessor degree.
Poor Nutrition – Research shows that poor nutrition, limited food intake, and nutrient deficiencies can cause hair thinning and hair loss. The may include nutrient deficiencies of:
- Amino-Acids (protein)
Consuming a diet too high in animal fat (saturated fats) such as fast food, dairy, etc., can negatively effect hair growth.
Stress – Stress has been shown to restrict blood flow to small capillaries which prevents oxygen and nutrients from reaching the hair follicle.
Medications – Some medications can influence hormone levels leading to hair loss, especially if not monitored closely by a physician. Some of these include:
- Contraceptive Pills
- Acne Medications
- Some Blood pressure medications
- Some Diabetes medications
- Some Cholesterol medications
