You will not get treatment to the entire area of hair loss and you may get a placebo plus microneedling rather than PRP. You will not know which you receive, PRP or saline.

    Patient follow-up is every 6 weeks for 52 weeks. we will measure hair density and hair mass at the beginning, 36 weeks, six months, and one year. Hair density will be measured by trimming hair.

    Here are the inclusion criteria and exclusion criteria. This is an IRB multicenter study to evaluate not activated neutrophile poor PRP at 5-6 times concentration of platelets.

    If you would like to participate in this study, please contact us at

    "Inclusion Criteria."
