PRP HairGro Plus

What is HairGro Plus Therapy?

PRP with HairGro Plus Therapy uses a patient’s own PRP mixed with a dual layer human amnion and chorion dehydrated (powder) allograft (AMA) of human amnion and chorion membranes that comprise the innermost layer of the placenta and line the amniotic cavity. Donors of amniotic membranes, used to produce the allograft used with PRP with HairGro Plus Therapy, have passed all applicable donor eligibility requirements and infectious disease testing. The AMA used in West Houston Dermatology’s PRP with HairGro Plus Therapy is processed with the MiMedx proprietary Purion® process to preserve the growth factors and is also terminally sterilized to reduce the risk of infection.

PRP with HairGro Plus Therapy has promising application

Human amniotic membrane allografts (AMA) have been used for a variety of reconstructive surgical procedures since the early 1900’s, and have promising applications in medicine and have been used successfully in ophthalmology, plastic surgery, orthopedics and dermatology. Amniotic membranes are a robust source of pluripotent/stem cells, growth factors, highly organized collagen, matrix proteins, and anti-inflammatory cytokines. AMAs are non-immunogenic, antibacterial, enhancers of the wound healing process, reducers of inflammation and scar formation, and recruiters of stem cells to wound sites. These properties can be beneficial when applied to Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) by improving tissue organization in healing and recruiting stem cells and other growth factors to the hair follicle complex.
