In 2007, Joseph Greco published our Preliminary Experience and Extended Applications for the Use of Platelet Rich Plasma in Hair Restoration Surgery 1 then, in 2009, he published The Effects of Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma on Non-Transplanted Miniaturized Hair 2 and the use of PRP as a non-surgical treatment for hair restoration was introduced.
In 2009, he received a Research Grant to Study the Effects of Autologous Growth Factors in Alopecia Areata and reported the results in Amsterdam, The Netherlands3 2010. A patent was then granted for a Skin Treatment for Promoting Hair Growth utilizing PRP for hair regeneration on Jan 5th, 2016.
Dr. Greco has trained physicians from 20 countries in the use of PRP and continues in advanced biologics treatments for hair restoration as well as pain and orthopedic injuries with GMG proprietary methods. These proprietary hair restoration treatments have evolved over the past 12 years and 8,000 treatments.
While other hair Restoration and Cosmetic clinics claim to have similar technology GMG set the standard and has gone far beyond traditional PRP treatments utilizing biologic technology. Today, PRP treatments have gone mainstream because of the early research done by Greco Medical Group.
Frontal hair recession is the most difficult area to treat non-surgically. This patient results are one session 6 months later.
