Dr. Louis Citarelli
Louis J. Citarelli, M.D., C.A.c, has been providing patients in New Jersey with exceptional Internal Medicine care for nearly 30 years. Dr. Citarelli has expanded his medical interests beyond traditional medicine and is Certified in Accupuncture through New York Medical College. He has also trained extensively in the use of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatments for both Hair and Facial Rejuvenation.
After suffering an injury to his shoulder, Dr. Citarelli was told his only course of action to repair the injury was surgery. Having an interest in holistic medicine, Dr. Citarelli researched non-traditional options to repairing his shoulder and discovered PRP Therapy. Following his series of injections, the pain he had been experiencing greatly subsided and his daily functions returned to normal. Dr. Citarelli now enjoys squash games several times a week without pain.
Fascinated by his own healing process, he began to learn more about the process of PRP Therapy and its properties. Not only had PRP been used for decades in orthopedic medicine, but it had shown amazing results for rejuvenating hair follicles with thinning hair becoming thicker and generating new hair growth. It was additionally shown to stimulate natural collagen when used on the skin, thus reduce the signs of aging and treating problem areas such as cheeks and smile lines, crinkling around the eyes and wrinkling to the back of the hands.
Dr. Citarelli has recently expanded his PRP Therapy expertise to our practice. PRP therapy can be used for patients who want to safely and naturally treat hair loss either as a standalone treatment or, in more advanced cases of hair loss, in conjunction with a hair transplant. PRP therapy for the skin is offered to naturally improve the overall quality, tightness, and texture of the skin. PRP can also be combined with other procedures offered in the practice such as facelifts, injectables, laser treatments, and facials to produce optimal results.
