U034 - Emerging Non-transplant Procedures and Drug Delivery for the Management of Complex Alopecias

Saturday, March 2; 7:30 AM - 8:30 AM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Describe the available evidence for the use of platelet rich plasma, microneedling and laser-assisted drug delivery for the management of alopecia.
  • Describe platelet rich plasma preparation techniques.


This session will focus on the rise of emerging minimally invasive procedures for the management of alopecia. The use of platelet rich plasma for hair disease will be reviewed in detail including evidence in the literature, product preparation, centrifuge characteristics, and current research. Microneedling will be reviewed along with available evidence. Evidence based literature and research trends in laser assisted drug delivery for the management of refractory alopecia will also be defined.
