First Time Getting PRP, and I Knew More About It Than the Doctor Who Did It.... - Metairie, LA

First let me say, always follow your first mind. I was going to book an appointment initially with Dr. Prasad in New York (which I should have done because he was my first choice.) However, I choose a local doctor. I went to the consultation appointment and Dr. Rogers was nice, but did not have any patient photos to show of patients that she had done PRP/ a cell treatments on. She gave me a paper explaining the PRP, and stated that it would be a total of 3 services for the PRP/acell (once every two months) I asked if I would see results after one service and she said it takes about 6 months and the 3 services are recommended to see results. I mentioned to her about Dr. Prasad stating his PRP hair restoration service is a one time injection with a booster maybe in 4 years. She didn't really say much except repeat about her 3 services. Well.....I made the appointment to get the PRP/acell done ( she only does PRP on Thursdays only in her practice.) The day of my appointment, Inshowed up. I was taken in one room to draw my blood for the PRP. They took my blood to another room to spin it down, then move me to another room to do the service. This was my first time getting the service done (and after watching Doctors videos injecting PRP/ acell into their patients scalp) I knew when I felt her just shooting the PRP out of the syringe onto my scalp ( no injection) I knew it was not being done right, the nurse who was assisting her was holding gauze to the sides of my face as the PRP ran down, she then begin to do micro-needling in the top of my scalp and used a dermaroller on my temporal areas. The procedure wasn't even 20 minutes. I think I just wasted $700, and I definitely won't be returning for the second or third session as recommend. It's been a few weeks and my hair still looks like the photos shown. No changes what so ever. Next time I'll just have to get an appointment with a more experienced PRP Doctor, even if that means traveling out of town by airplane..... Not happy at all :(

Still No Progress After PRP/ with Acell

All details were explained in my previous post, so this post is just to show my front edges are still thin like I never had anything done. I braided my hair to show my parting areas are also still wide no difference post PRP/ acell..... I wish I would have went to a Doctor more experienced in PRP with acell :(
New Orleans Dermatologist

Dr. Rogers was very nice and polite. In my opinion, she's just not that experienced in PRP/ Acell. She has only been doing PRP since 2016. This service was not offered when I called her office last year in September 2015. I noticed it was on her website in May 2016.
