Minimal – No Downtime
DE|RIVE is a Professional grade Plant Based Stem Cell Exosome product applied to the scalp using a low hertz ultrasound device to drive the exosomes into the vascular layer of the scalp where they increase communication between the follicles and stimulate growth.
DE|RIVE is a 10 minute, pain free, in-office treatment done once per month for 3-6 months.
DE|RIVE hair restoration works best when combined with at-home use of DE|RIVE serum. Applied once daily to the scalp. This topical does not leave hair looking oily. Hair can be styled as normal after use.
Why use DE|RIVE?
Unlike PRP, which requires an adequate platelet count and nutrient status of the blood, DE|RIVE uses plant based stem cell factors. Those with platelet counts lower than recommended level for PRP can utilize DE|RIVE for similar results. DE|RIVE hair restoration is completely needleless – it does not require a blood draw and is not injected. For those with a fear of needles or low pain tolerance, DE|RIVE is recommended.
Platelet-Rich-Plasma – Hair Restoration
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for hair restoration involves a series of tiny injections of your own platelets into the vascular layer of your scalp.
PRP for Hair Regrowth
• Increases blood supply to the follicle
• Increases shaft size (thickness)
• Triggers and maintains the growth phase
• Controls hair growth cycle
• Decreases hair loss
How PRP Works
Platelets contain healing growth factors. Those growth factors are like signal callers that give instructions to your tissue to regenerate and multiply. This has lead different fields of medicine to utilize PRP for wound healing to speed up recovery time and regrow healthier, stronger tissue.
With PRP for hair, your growth factors and stem cells work together to reverse the miniaturization of the hair follicle and jumpstarting dormant hair back into the growth stage.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if I am a good candidate for PRP?
You must have some hair remaining and a healthy platelet count (tested in a CBC blood test). Your physician will use our screening tools to ensure this is the best action for you.
How many treatments are required?
Typically a series of 6 treatments spaced one month apart are recommended, as this has been shown to produce the best results.
Are the results permanent?
It is difficult to predict if PRP or DE|RIVE hair restoration results will be permanent because it does not slow down aging or reverse genetics. Living a healthy lifestyle and receiving maintenance as needed can help you see a long lasting result.
Is the PRP for hair restoration process time consuming?
No, appointments are 30 or less minutes, with the actual injections taking about 5 minutes. We use top quality PRP kits with a high platelet yield. PRP should be used as quickly as possible.
Does the procedure hurt?
There may be some sensitivity. However, we offer effective anesthetic solutions, such as a topical analgesic to minimize any potential discomfort. Talk to your physicians about the right option for you.
Is there any recovery time?
There is no downtime or a long recovery process. You can go back to work. Avoid swimming, saunas, and tight fitting headwear for the remainder of the treatment day. It is safe to take a warm shower and be active 4 hours after the treatment. It is advised to avoid using any harsh dyes or chemicals on your hair for 48 hours.
