ISHRS 1st Place Award Winners for Poster on PRP for Hair Restoration

Home/Blog / ISHRS 1st Place Award Winners for Poster on PRP for Hair Restoration

Our plastic surgeons, James Vogel, MD and Carrie Houssock, MD, along with our nurse practitioner Lindsay, won the first place poster at the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) 27th annual World Congress meeting in Bangkok, Thailand! The award-winning poster presented the successful results of our work with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) injection therapy for hair restoration. The findings outlined in the poster support the claim that patients with androgenic alopecia can continue to benefit from a protocol of PRP/ACell injection therapy over a 24 month period. An impressive 92% of patients in our study who have received the PRP/ACell injection treatment protocol (some with additional treatment supplements of minoxidil and finasteride) have achieved good or excellent improvement in hair shaft diameter. 

Our team is grateful to the ISHRS for the recognition they received for their work at the conference, and for the opportunity to share their findings with top medical hair restoration professionals from around the world. The ISHRS proudly includes members from 70 different countries and is committed to supporting excellence in patient outcomes through high-quality medical treatment strategies, the pursuit of innovative hair restoration research, and adherence to established ethical guidelines. Dr. Vogel is not only an active member of the ISHRS, he is also a founding member and past president of the prestigious organization. In 2016 he was presented with The Golden Follicle Award, one of the organization’s top honors. This award is given annually to highlight an individual who has made significant clinical contributions to the medical hair restoration industry. 

If you are experiencing hair loss and want to explore effective treatments to restore a more youthful, natural-looking hairline along with enhanced hair thickness and coverage, we welcome you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Vogel or Dr. Houssock. Their experience in a wide range of hair restoration techniques and track record of successful results make our practice a great choice for achieving the thicker, fuller hair you desire.
