Summerlin Dermatology's board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Reuel Aspacio, is proud to announce that his practice now offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections for hair loss using your own blood. Hair loss is a major concern for many patients, whether it is caused by age, genetics, hormones, medical conditions, or from styling practices, and/or products. A sample of your blood will be drawn and processed to isolate the healthy platelet-rich plasma cells, which will be injected back into your face, hairline, or eyebrows to encourage and stimulate regenerative growth.
If you have male or female pattern baldness (open areas on the back of the head, frontal, and mid-scalp), this may be the treatment for you. Combined with medications like Propecia or Minoxidil, PRP could be your solution for hair regrowth. If you’re in the Las Vegas, NV area and are looking for a dermatologist to boost hair growth, we suggest that you call us today. Schedule an appointment to see if you are a candidate for this revolutionary process! By combining a powerful solution of growth factors and bioactive proteins, Dr. Aspacio can help to strengthen the function of your hair, leading to longer, thicker, and healthier locks.
"Finding a new doctor you love of any specialty is like finding the best pair of jeans. I saw Ms Eriko NP and she was sooo great! She truly cares about my skincare issues. She engages in conversation and isn't in and out of a room in 2 mins! I highly recommend Summerlin Dermatology!"- M.R. / Yelp / Dec 26, 2018

"Summerlin Dermatology is the best Dermatology office in Las Vegas! If I could give this office 100 stars I would in a heartbeat. My grandparents have been patients of his for over 10 years. My papa had skin cancer that Dr. Aspacio removed successfully. My grandma is a Filipino woman who loves to garden and she developed Melasma, Dr. Aspacio knew the best way to help her. I personally started going to Dr. Aspacio In 2008, I had surgery on my arm and I ended up finding out that I develop keloids. I was very self conscious about my scar, my grandparents recommended that I see Dr. Aspacio and I'm so thankful that I did. Years later in 2017, my boyfriend has a consistent rash that he couldn't get rid of, then he started having fast unexpected hair loss. He went to numerous dermatology offices in Las Vegas and never found anything that helped. I finally convinced him to see my dermatologist he made an appointment to see Alice at Summerlin Dermatology. He said she was very professional and was very direct and to the point. Due to his Alopecia, Alice did injections at the site where he had hair loss and thankfully the hair grew back perfect. You'd never know he had hair loss! She prescribed a few things for the rash and he finally had results. He was happy and that made me happy! I couldn't be more thankful for this office in taking care of my family. I currently get my botox from Dr. Aspacio & I love my results, all thanks to Trish, she is their cosmetic coordinator and office manager. She has the most awesome personality. Every time I get to see her it's like catching up with family, I feel right at home. I work for another surgeon in Las Vegas and our patients can't say enough great things about Trish and everyone else at Summerlin Dermatology. I only trust Dr. Aspacio with my face! I highly HIGHLY recommend this office for any medical dermatology or cosmetic needs. (:"- T.W. / Yelp / Dec 10, 2018

Any patient experiencing hair loss is essentially a good candidate for PRP treatments, but those with early hair loss tend to respond best. PRP treatments are best used for patients with androgenic alopecia, which is a genetically determined type of hair thinning that mostly occurs at the top of the head. In women, this can look like a widening part with normal hair thickness at the back of the head. Patients with areas of "weak quality” hair growth on the scalp with still-functioning hair follicles usually have the greatest success with PRP hair regrowth treatments.
A minimally invasive procedure, PRP therapy is a short 60-minute in-office visit. The process begins with acquiring a small amount of your blood and placing it in a special machine, which spins the blood at high speed to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood components. Next, a local anesthetic is applied to your scalp and the concentrated platelet-rich plasma is reintroduced into areas of your scalp that are thinning or bald. Our protocol for nonsurgical management of hair loss consists of an initial treatment and maintenance treatments approximately every nine months to one year.
What to Expect
There is no downtime, no limitations, nor restrictions following this procedure. If anything, patients may develop some redness, minimal swelling, and mild tenderness to the treated areas. These symptoms may last up to 48 hours. While results differ for each patient, cosmetic results are commonly seen around 4 – 6 months after the first treatment and will continue to improve up to a full year. As PRP is not a permanent solution for hair loss, repeat treatments are recommended. It is essential to note that PRP does not grow new hair follicles in areas that are bald. It is used to help reverse the miniaturization of hair follicles so they will produce healthier, thicker, longer hair fibers.
