With thousands of men and women in Northeast Ohio experiencing hair loss, hair replacement “solutions” are easy to find. 

The problem, says Dr. Laurel Matthews, a board certified physician with more than 35 years of practice experience and the owner of Dr. Laurel’s PRP Bar, is that most treatments touted to cure hair loss are the modern equivalent of snake oil.

“There are only a few safe treatment methods that have been medically proven to regrow hair,” she explains.

“Hair transplant surgery is one option, but it’s extremely painful and it’s costly. Minoxidil works, but only as long as you keep using it. And PRP, a medically-proven way to regrow hair using the body’s own platelet-rich plasma, which works naturally—without drugs or surgery.”

Dr. Laurel meets with each patient to personally identify the cause of hair loss. The best candidates for her Hair Regrow treatment are men with male-pattern baldness, women with perimenopausal hair loss or thinning and people with certain types of alopecia.

Following the consultation she does a blood draw, spins out the platelet-rich plasma and injects it into the patient’s scalp where it can begin to regenerate the area and regrow hair. A series of three treatments is required to see measurable results at nine months. 

Before deciding to undergo a PRP hair procedure, Dr. Laurel recommends you ask the following questions:

  1. Is the person performing the PRP injection competent? Dr. Laurel possesses expert-level knowledge about PRP and its clinical use as a treatment for everything from aging skin and incontinence to hair loss and sexual dysfunction.
  2. Is the person administering the treatment utilizing FDA approved methodology for collection? Dr. Laurel only uses a scientifically proven, FDA-approved method of collecting PRP.
  3. Is your doctor doing everything she can to minimize discomfort? Dr. Laurel applies a topical local anesthetic, uses the smallest needles and employs a cryo machine to numb pain fibers prior to injecting. 

Dr. Laurel is proud of the fact that her prices are among the lowest in the area, at $750 per treatment with a discount offered on package purchases.
