March 20th is the first day of Spring! Let us rejuvenate you with this months special of PRP (Platelet rich Plasma). PRP is used to rejuvenate both your skin and hair. Four treatments for alopecia one month apart just $1900.00. Facial and Décolletage treatment just $1400. Face alone just $950.
PRP and Facial/Skin Rejuvenation
PRP therapy is combined with automated microneedling and can be performed on the face as well as the rest of the body. The use of the micropen is combined with PRP. Microneedling uses tiny needles in the to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the fibroblast cells in the dermal layers of the skin to produce new collagen and elastin. Microneedling, promotes wound healing with no scarring and the skin barrier is regenerated and rejuvenated with enhanced integrity.
Another benefit of combining PRP with the Micropen is that superficial micro-channels which are created from microneedling, allow for better, deeper absorption of PRP. So during the treatment, PRP and/or other active ingredients in medical grade serums can be applied to enhance the effect of collagen and elastin rejuvenation. 
PRP & Hair Loss
About 50 million American men and 30 million  women  have male- or female-pattern baldness. It can begin early in life, but is much more common after the age of 50, when more than 50 percent of men will experience some kind of hair loss. However, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy appears to help regrow lost hair. And, there are virtually no side effects from PRP. Dr Humble has been working with PRP for over ten years being one of the first physicians to use it in California. Platelets are your first line of defense in any injury. They release growth factors that let our bodies naturally heal wounds. In this treatment we isolate your platelets and then inject them into the area that needs to be rejuvenated with new hair growth. T he plasma, which helps repair blood vessels, promote cell growth, and stimulate collagen production helps bring new nutrients to the hair follicle. H igh concentrations of platelets in plasma cells (5 to 10 times normal) help promote hair growth by prolonging the growing phase of the hair cycle. Clinical results show an increase in thickness of a hair shaft and actually an increase in hairs per square inch. In a review of the literature, the overall increase in hair density is an average of up to 27 hairs/cm2. We typically administer injections monthly for four months, then spread them out over about three or four months for up to two years. The injection schedule will depend on your genetics, pattern and amount of hair loss, age and hormones. It takes about three months to see an improvement. PRP therapy works better if your hair loss is recent.
