Longtime WHLP member, Lina, shares her experience having PRP with Dr. Joseph Greco in Sarasota, Florida.
I thought I was at a place of “acceptance”, or as I like to rephrase it, “realization” as I’m not sure if I will ever completely accept my hair loss. I’m a full-time wig wearer. I threw out all my snake oil and promise pills, my 25+ years dealing with hair loss and the ups and down down downs it brings has exhaustipated me.
I’m at a point where I am done with pills and chemicals, Lord knows what kind of lethal cocktail I was ingesting with everything I was putting into my body…
Hi Dr. Greco,
I just wanted to send you a note to thank you so much for all the help with my hair transplant. I cannot believe how well I did through it. This was by far the best result and recovery I have ever had. The hair never did seem to fall out at all! It just started growing like crazy and is still growing like crazy! I have been able to wear it in ways that I haven’t been able to for a long time. I received so many compliments on New Year’s Eve it was amazing!! Now I do use a few tricks……but I must have heard ten times how thick and beautiful my hair was!! I think I will be sending one of my girlfriends your way if she is open to it. I think just your treatments would help her quite a bit.. Again, thank you, thank you, thank you from a very grateful me!!!! See you in the spring for a treatment before I go back to Michigan for the summer.

I wanted to say how much I have loved the treatment on my scalp. It’s the 2nd time I have had it done and I really saw major results! I saw hair growth and thickening results within 2 months. I will continue to do the procedure once a year! Everyone is super nice as well. The staff and dr Greco is wonderful. It doesn’t hurt at all and is a fast procedure! I’m thrilled with the results!!!!!!!
Hey Dr. Greco,
Just thought I’d say hello and let you know my hair is kicking butt my man. I saw you April 3rd so it’s been like 80 days and my hair is fuller then it’s been in 10yrs.
If you recall I went ahead and stopped taking the finasteride about 60days ago, I then did begin Rogaine to help off set and then about 3 weeks ago the laser cap.
I attribute the treatment you gave me to my current success! The other two items certainly are going to start helping as well but just began the laser cap. I believe my scalp is as healthy as it’s been in decades.
Thought you’d be pleased to hear my update, you know your Hair Joe…glad I know you!
Hi Dr. Greco,
Here I am, following up about 5 months later! I don’t know why I waited so long – because I’ve had such GREAT results from my PRP treatment in May! I’ve kept telling myself that I needed to email you to let you know how happy I am with the procedure, but never got around to actually doing it. If you remember, I’ve been struggling with thin hair since 15, so the crown area is still a problem area, but I cant believe how much growth I’ve had (especially in the sides/top of my head) I’ve even had friends and family members giving me lots of compliments that my hair looks much thicker too. I also noticed a lot of “peach fuzz” type hairs coming in. The best part is that I no longer have to wear that DermMatch scalp concealer – it feels great.
Back in June (the month after I had PRP), I noticed a LOT of drastic hair color changes, in fact my friends kept asking me if I was dying my hair (which I never did). My hair color did get richer and darker (like we discussed), and it even looks reddish in some lights, so I definitely achieved much richer hair color, but I also got a gray hair (my first one lol), and I don’t even know if it was related to the PRP, but it’s interesting to note that the single hair started turning gray from the bottom-up, like I dipped it in bleach or something. Anyways, not sure if that’s something you ever heard of, and I don’t mind the color changes, I actually think it’s neat and wanted to share that with you.
Just thought I’d send you a quick note on the subjective results of my last visit. I believe I see a clear difference in the amount of shedding that occurred after the previous 3 visits that I had.
As you may recall I’ve only done PRP therapy for the first 3 visits, and I noticed reduced shedding after those visits. My initial thoughts are that this visit, using the matrix, has produced even less shedding since the procedure.
I think I can subjectively conclude that this version of the procedure has improved the shedding loss after the visit.
It appears that these visits are all slowing down the loss of hair, but that the matrix is slowing down the loss even more. If there is regrowth, then that would be pretty amazing…
I’m definitely motivated to have another visit with you in 6 months to investigate the results.
Dr. Greco, just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the PRP treatment I received 5 months ago. My hair has been thinning for about 20 years. Since the treatment, I have had no further hair loss and my crown is thicker. Thank you so much for offering this treatment to me and others losing their hair. What an exciting journey this has been. Thanks again.
