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.

"I've been coming to Summerlin Dermatology for a couple of years for Botox and filler and have been very pleased with results. Trish is the doctor's knowledgeable coordinator, and she's wonderful. They've always succeeded in making me look better (not fake, or young, or expressionless). Better is what I was going for. I hate the "plastic look" that so many of these treatments produce. I highly recommend Dr. Aspacio and his staff."- S.R. / Yelp / Jan 24, 2020
"One of the best Dermatolgy offices in town. Dr Aspacio is a fantastic injector. He listens and addresses concerns along with his nurse Trish. They make a great team and I always leave feeling my best. I have never been anything but thrilled with my botox and filler results. I have referred over 15 family members and friends and they all have had a similar experience. Thank you Doc and team!!!!!!"- C.L. / Yelp / Jan 24, 2020
"I have been a patient/client of Dr. Aspacio's since 2009. I had been searching for a place to get Botox and start my whole anti-aging regimen and hadn't had much luck. I went to a few places that made me feel really bad about myself and I left there feeling awful. Then I found Summerlin Dermatology and Trish Hoffman the cosmetic coordinator is amazing. She's honest, won't try and sell you a bill of goods, and takes her position very seriously. She gets it! Dr. Aspacio is top notch. He is an expert injector, which means he is specially trained to inject neurotoxins in places that normally other injectors would not. He is sweet, professional, smart and well known for his practice in Las Vegas. My girlfriends come here from SF and LA just so they can see him! I have also had many treatments by the Aesthetician's. My favorite is their clear and brilliant but also their Venus Viva is a great treatment too. It's a relaxing office with a cool waiting area where you can buy products. I forgot to mention the fact that Dr. Aspacio is a great dermatologist. If you have any skin conditions, problem rashes etc he's your man!!"- T.J. / Yelp / Jan 24, 2020
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.
