I just recently started noticing a thinner patch of hair at the crown of my head. It was hard for me to accept this because my hair has always been so full. But Dr. Anna Paré assured me this was a normal occurrence for men my age and really helped put me at ease.
Before starting the procedure, Dr. Paré numbed up my scalp and drew blood from my arm to create the platelet rich plasma they would be using for the treatment. The blood is drawn and put into a centrifuge, which helps to create a liquid gold plasma. The plasma aids with stimulating hair growth in the designated areas. Although the actual needle sticks were a little uncomfortable, the speed of the procedure and the idea of using my own platelets to encourage growth was appealing.
I felt comfortable during the entire process. The doctor and assistants were very approachable and answered any questions I had. At each step they let me know what to expect and I felt good in their hands. I have received one out of three treatments and I am still in the “after” part, but there is no discomfort and I am hopeful to see results.
