    film Dr. Lindsey discussing PRFM

    Here is my philosophy and rationale for the use of platelet rich fibrin matrix in hair transplantation. To date, I've used it only with surgery, as a "fertilizer" to help grafts. I recognize that there may be some reason for doing a followup treatment at 3 or 6 months out...but have not performed that yet. And I do not believe that PRFM or any other non DHT blocking chemical will halt or reverse MPB. There are plenty of platelets and plasma/blood components all over balding guys' heads....putting more in will not reverse hairloss due to DHT, and will result in a transfer of hard earned currency without significant benefit. I suspect there are anecdotal responses to a variety of treatments, but as to the consistent and significant support of hair growth without transplantation, I don't think we currently have options other than Rogaine/Propecia and surgery.
