Dr. Chilukuri’s Hair Treatment Protocol

Is there an ideal protocol available for hair loss treatment? Dr. Suneel Chilukuri says PRP + Nutrafol seem to work better together.

Is there an ideal protocol available for hair loss treatment? At this year’s South Beach Symposium, Suneel Chilukuri, M.D., suggested that PRP + Nutrafol seem to work better together and shared his current treatment protocol with us:

INITIAL VISIT

Pre-treatment photos. Nutrafol (Woman’s Balance vs. Woman’s vs. Men’s) — provide the patient with 3 to 6 months of tablets. If the patient is not willing to commit to their scalp health and wants only a 1-month supply, I do not partner with her or him.

SCHEDULE A 1-MONTH FOLLOW UP

VISIT 2

Take scalp photos (1-month follow up photos). Patient must bring back the bottle of Nutrafol (this is encouraged by offering a small amount off towards their next Nutrafol purchase).

Add Revian Red cap. Our team will download the app at the time of purchase and start the patient on their first cap treatment in the office. Review how to use the cap and the app.

SCHEDULE A 1-MONTH FOLLOW UP

VISIT 3

Take scalp photos (2-month follow-up photos). Review Revian app data with patient. Screenshot the app data and upload to patient’s medical records. Collect second month of empty Nutrafol bottle from the patient. Add topical Kerafactor at this visit.

SCHEDULE A 1-MONTH FOLLOW UP

VISIT 4

Take scalp photos (3-month follow up photos). Compare pre-treatment and 3-month photos. Download and electronically send to patient’s phone (Air Drop or USB stick). Review Revian app data with patient. Screenshot the app data and upload to patient’s medical records. At this time, consider in-office scalp/hair treatment (PRP vs. Keralase vs. other) if appropriate. Collect third month of empty Nutrafol bottle from the patient. Refill Nutrafol (provide 10% “recycling” discount if patient returned all three empty Nutrafol bottles).
