Platelet-Rich Plasma nurtures hair follicles with critical growth factors that take them from a dormant state to an active state.
In certain instances, we use trichometric analysis, a sophisticated computerized measurement tool, to analyze characteristics of the scalp and hair. Dr. Darling uses a digital assessment system which consists of a small handheld device containing a high definition, microscopic camera.
Dr. Darling uses this camera to take pictures of the scalp and hair, and the images are displayed on a computer monitor. The microscopic camera can magnify these images by up to 100 times, giving a detailed look at hair, hair follicles, and the scalp.
This provides information about hair coverage, including hair density, hair width and degree of alopecia. These details are used to monitor the progression of new hair growth after treatment begins.
