According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), it’s normal to lose 50 to 100 hairs per day. This amount of hairs lost per day does not usually cause noticeable thinning because new hair is growing in at the same time. But, if you are losing more hair than that, it means that you are shedding more than you should be. According to a 2014 survey by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, approximately 35 million men in the United States suffer some type of hair loss, while approximately 21 million women are affected.

At the New England Stem Cell Institute, we offer thinning hair treatments including Vampire Hair Restoration®. For this, PRP is injected directly into the scalp in order to stimulate hair growth. PRP is a substance derived from a patient’s own blood that is made by taking a small sample and spinning it in a centrifuge.
To add rocket fuel to this treatment and ensure it delivers the best result possible in the shortest amount of time, Dr. Tortland utilizes Supershot® Complete PRP, which has a higher concentration of growth factors compared to regular PRP. Dr. Tortland is one of the first doctors using Supershot®, and right now, he is the ONLY doctor incorporating it into Vampire Hair Restoration®.
