Shanthala MD Medspa and Laser Center
I am so grateful that I found Dr. Shanthala. From the moment you enter her practice, you instantly feel calm and comfortable. The office staff are so friendly and informative regarding the process to put you at ease during your first visit. Dr. Shanthala took the time to sit with me and discuss my current aging concerns and goals without ever making me feel rushed or pressured. She thoroughly explained the anatomy of my face in a way that no other doctor has before and explained the important roles that each muscles plays in my facial expressions. It was obvious from the start that Dr. Shanthala is truly passionate about helping her clients look and feel their best. One of the most unique aspects of Dr. Shanthala’s practice is the fact that she takes the time to consult and educate you prior to completing any treatments or cosmetic procedures. She then takes before and after photos to track your progress and allow you to visually compare your results. Let me tell you, I was BLOWN away. After one Botox treatment with Dr. Shanthala, my face had a more youthful and wrinkle free glow without looking fake or frozen. I can’t tell you how many people came up to me within the first week of my treatment to tell me how healthy and well rested I looked. 5 stars are not enough for this amazing doctor. She treats each person as an individual and helps you to feel beautiful and confident. If you are considering trying Botox or any type of cosmetic treatment for the first time do not hesitate to book your consultation now. I promise, you will not regret it. I walked into Dr. Shanthala’s office looking to do something and ended up doing things totally different then what was planned. And I’m glad I went with her recommendation. She truly thinks about her clients and wants you to spend on your most needed improvement. Your money will be wisely spent if you listen to her.... Dr. Shanthala is truly amazing at what she does! She’s thoughtful and caring. Listens to your wants and needs and advises what she thinks is best. I don’t know if you’re anything like me, but I’m an instant gratification kinda gal. Who thinks more is always better! She cares about her patients and would never do anything that wasn't in their best interest just because that’s what we wanted and were willing to pay. The atmosphere is welcoming and everyone is friendly and kind. I always feel comfortable from the beginning of the procedure, to the end. She talks you through and makes sure you know exactly what’s happening and when. I joked with Marciel as I was booking my next appointment that I will always come to Dr. Shanthala until she stops practicing and even then I may beg her to treat me from home! My lips have never felt fuller and I’ve never had such confidence as I do now!... Ever since I was seven, my left labia has always been a bit bigger than the right side, and to be honest, I was going to perform labiaplasty on myself because it bothered me too much. And I didn't even know that this existed until I spontaneously search for other women with the same problem. I was hesitant on paying $2K+ on this surgery because I am only 19, full-time college student, and... Words can’t express my gratitude! 100% satisfied. Wonderful doctor with great bedside manner. Highly recommend! Five star service.

PRP for Hair loss at ShanthalaMD

What are the main causes of hair loss?

The etiology of hair loss is multifactorial. Hair loss can be seen in both men and women, young and older age group patients.

The studies have shown that there is a significant role of testosterone, the role of chronic inflammation, perifollicular fibrosis, lack of immunity plays a role in androgenic alopecia. Also genetics, stress, lack of nutrition and other underlying medical conditions such as lupus, infection, and malignancy can lead to hair loss.

Hair loss can be attributed to many factors, including spot baldness or alopecia, hypotrichosis of the eyebrows or hair loss due to various metabolic conditions. Premature baldness becomes a big issue for both males and females who are suffering from it because it is difficult to hide, and it affects your self-esteem.

How does PRP work for Hair loss?

Platelet Rich Plasma for hair restoration is based on regenerative medicine theory. The PRP treatments are used in various applications in the fields of dentistry, ophthalmology and a number of surgical specializations. Patients blood is drawn and the plasma is separated by using a centrifuge system, this plasma is highly concentrated with platelets.

These platelets are activated with calcium chloride to release many potent growth factors, such as VGEF, TGF, FDGF, PRP upregulates the cytokines and enhances the tricho-stimulatory effect on hair stem cells, increases the anagen phase of the hair cycle, improves the blood circulation by inducing angiogenesis to the hair bulb, remodeling and neovascularization.

What is Clinical Platelet Rich Plasma (C-PRP)

Clinical platelet-rich plasma (C-PRP)  is concentrated platelets, with a 5mL treatment sample of C-PRP should contain at least 5 billion deliverable platelets, for clinical efficacy, by using PURE PRP system

Why Choose ShanthalaMD for Hair loss therapy?

At ShanthalaMD we use The Gold Standard System Pure PRP  to obtain potent Supra physiologic Clinical PRP  Platelets cell membrane contains alpha granules that are full of growth factors.  There are several growth factors which are key to the proliferative repair of damaged tissue. All these Growth factors stimulate cellular growth, differentiation, proliferation and healing. Highest quality and the quantity of Growth factors are the most important components of C-PRP when used as a regenerative biologic.  These growth factors derived by EmCyte system are much more potent and concentrated than any other systems.

How do you inject the PRP for hair loss?

To apply PRP as a hair regrowth strategy, the patient’s blood is processed as required. Anesthesia is given and the injections administered into the areas of reduced hair in the scalp. The procedure takes about 15 to 20 minutes and performed by a physician, and the most common side effect is soreness of the scalp, which will fade in 24 to 48 hours.

How many sessions of PRP  for hair loss is needed?

We recommend aggressive initial PRP treatment sessions of 3 to 4 each month and then maintenance therapy of 3 treatments every3  months  is needed with PRP injections. Follow up visits with Dr.Shantala are important to determine if more PRP treatments are needed to sustain hair growth.

What is the Cost of PRP for Hair loss?

We believe in initial aggressive management and then strategic maintenance PRP plan to maintain the hair growth and prevent further hair loss. The savings are usually based on the package or series purchased.

Is it safe to get PRP for your hair loss?

PRP is naturally occurring in your body, no side effects, no downtime like after having a hair transplant, no scar, no bleeding and it is anti-inflammatory and causes a tremendous amount of dermal remodeling.

What other treatments are offered at ShanthalaMD to enhance the hair growth other than PRP?

We highly recommend our patients to start with daily antioxidants and hair vitamins such as VIVISCAL  and  NUTRAFOL. We also combine PRP with Low-Level Laser Therapy which is known to enhance the trichostimulation.

When should I start my PRP for hair loss?

Dr. Shanthala highly recommends that one should consider starting the PRP treatment process at an early stage of hair loss along with Viviscal and LLLT.
