Beverly Hills, Calif.-based hair transplant specialist John Kahen, MD, announces the issuance of U.S. patent No.10,456,422b2 for Smart PRP (platelet-rich plasma), a healing technology for hair restoration surgeryThis patented remedy incorporates mending the surgical wound from the transferred hair follicles, which should ensure a high survival rate for the hair follicle graft. The SmartPRP therapy uses the body’s own tissue to stimulate fresh follicles.

In addition, the treatment should promote the hair’s own color and density while also improving the scarring, which can allow the healing to appear more organic, Kahen says.

“I have been exclusively implementing SmartPRP during my hair transplant procedures for more than 10 years,” says Kahen. “The infusion of the platelet-rich plasma during the hair transplant process has increased the survival rate of the follicles and expedited the healing process. Patients can expect to see thicker, more voluminous, and most importantly, stronger and healthier hair.”

Smart PRP therapy is a 30-minute inpatient procedure, performed onsite, at Kahen’s practice facility in Beverly Hills, Calif. Patients experience no downtime and can get back to their regular routine upon completion of the treatment.
