Dr. Lawrence Jaeger, a leading New York City Dermatologist offers PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy for patients suffering from hair loss or thinning hair. Recent studies have provided new evidence indicating the effectiveness of PRP Therapy as a viable non-surgical medical procedure. By utilizing a patient's own blood to create an ideal concentration of Platelet Rich Plasma necessary for hair growth and rejuvenation, Lawrence Jaeger has seen great improvements and results for patients seeking treatment for Alopecia and other types of hair loss.
