About the Procedure
Bosley has been a major name in hair restoration for decades, from hair transplants to topical products. TriGen+ is a combination of treatments designed to reduce hair thinning, strengthen existing hairs, and regrow hair. Treatment consists of three procedures: PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections, at-home low level laser therapy (LLLT), and Bosley products which include shampoos, supplements, and Minoxidil. First, the patient will receive PRP injections. Blood will be collected from the patient, placed in a centrifuge, and the components of the blood will be separated. Once the PRP is isolated, the serum can then be injected into parts of the scalp that are experiencing hair thinning. At home, patients will use LLLT therapy either daily or every other day for a period of 6-30 minutes. The patient will also be directed to use specific products on a consistent, daily basis as well including shampoos, supplements, and topical Rogaine.
TriGen+ treatment seeks to reverse the early stages of hair loss by treating thinning hair, bald spots, and receding hairlines with a combination treatment of PRP, low level laser therapy, and additional hair restoration products.
What to Expect
TriGen+ is a hair restoration system by Bosley that uses a combination of PRP injections, low level laser therapy, and Bosley products. Here is a quick guide for what to expect before, during, and after TriGen+ treatment.
Prior to PRP injection:
- Avoid blood thinning medications
- Stop consuming alcohol 3 days prior
- Quit smoking at least 1 week before
- Wash hair the morning of a PRP session
- Other hair loss treatments may be continued before the procedure
- Patients are allowed to color hair up to 3 days prior
- A small amount of blood is collected from the patient
- Blood is placed into a centrifuge to separate the PRP
- PRP is injected into the scalp
No recovery is needed after TriGen+ treatment. The scalp may feel tight or full after PRP injections however minimal to no side effects are associated with LLT or topical hair restoration products. If swelling occurs, sleep in an inclined position.
The ideal candidate for TriGen+ is in the early stages of hair loss and is willing to commit to a consistent treatment plan of LLLT and topical product application.
Not Recommended For
TriGen+ is not recommended for patients with critical low platelet count, hypofibrinogenemia, hemodynamic instability, infection, chronic liver disease, anticoagulation therapy, scarring alopecia, and incidence of excessive drinking or smoking.
Side effects of TriGen+ are minimal and are mostly associated with the PRP injections. Side effects may include minimal pain, pinpoint bleeding, and redness, tightness in the scalp, or allergic reaction to topical hair restoration products.
