Vampire Hair Restoration

Vampire Hair™ Restoration helps to prevent or reduce hair loss. The restoration treatment has high potential to revitalize the growth of hair follicles. The growth factor in the platelets activates the follicles to create new growth.

PRP Therapy protects hair from additional shedding, renews miniaturizing hairs for improved growth, and restores hair quality and quantity for patients with thinning hair. Vampire Hair™ Restoration candidates include male and females with hereditary hair loss, Alopecia Areata, Hypotrichosis (decreased hair growth) of eyebrows — and patients who’ve had unsuccessful surgical hair restoration previously, and those who want to maintain hair without using medication like Propecia or Rogaine.

The physician, Kevin Smith, MD, will come in and look at the scalp to determine how much PRP will be needed for the procedure.  RMBI staff will then come in and clean the scalp and put a topical numbing cream over the area that will be treated. We will then draw your blood and begin the double spin PRP process. The numbing cream will need to sit for an approximately 30 minutes.

Kevin Smith, MD, will inject the PRP directly into the scalp using a grid pattern over the entire thinning or balding area. Using our micro-needling pen Dr. Smith will then apply a second layer of PRP. This will activate the dormant hair follicles from underneath the surface as well as on the surface of the scalp, assuring that the patient gets the best results.

Dr. Charles Runels inventor and genius mind behind this revolutionary treatment has changed the lives of so many with hair loss. Kevin Smith, MD has been trained by Dr. Runels and certified in all of the Vampire Procedures including Vampire Hair™ Restoration.

Vampire Hair™ Restoration is a safe procedure without any common side effects. PRP treatments are considered completely safe and natural as you are using growth factors from your own body with a sterile technique, so there is almost no chance of blood infection or an adverse immune response.

Vampire Hair™ Restoration comes with zero downtime. Patient’s must avoid washing hair until a day or two after treatment. After that period, you can style your hair as you usually do. You may experience some discomfort such as tightness of scalp, redness, and swelling from the micro needling for up to 48 hours. However, you can manage it with analgesic like Tylenol. Avoid drugs like Aspirin, Aleve, Advil, ibuprofen, and other NSAIDS.

Just like with all PRP procedures, the patient will see the full results between 8 and 12 weeks.  However, the patient should start to see a difference after the first 2-3 weeks. Each patient heals differently so the results are different for everyone.

You are Always Awesome!

Does Vampire Hair work?

A 2015 study of 10 people receiving PRP injections every 2 to 3 weeks for 3 months showed improvements in the number of hairs, the thickness of those hairs, and the strength of the hair roots. This study helps provide extra support to the findings of other PRP and hair loss studies.

How long does it last?

The effects of PRP are not permanent but effects can last up to 18 months in an average with a maximum of 2years as the longest reported effect.
