Dr.Calabria in Beverly hills...

hiclub2, I read Dr. Calabria only does the stem cells at his office in Italy. Is he now doing this in California? Have you been in to talk to him?

hi, i live in italy..where can i find some reference , web site or telephone number of the doctor?

thx!!

Hi Ghet, If you decide to go to him please come back and share your experience with the board. You can't put links on this site. Italy call Anna Marie: + 39.349.4662323. do a search for Dr. Calabria

Let me know if you aren't able to find this.

He is in Milan.

There is a new procedure here in the United States. It is called Selphyl (PRFM). Would like to know the difference between PRP and PRFM. PRFM uses Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix. The PRP in Japan has a platelet / white blood cell combo. I would like to know the dif. I wish BRD was on here to explain.

For the person that said we should only talk about stem cells on here, I do not think that is the case because this PRP / PRFM should be used in combo with the Stem Cells. I believe this is how BRD explained it.

BRD if you read this and don't want to post on the board please send me a private message.

I'm still researching. Have you met with either of the doctors? I'm concerned because they don't seem to specialize in scarring. Dr. Khan does, but I hate going that far. Keep me posted and let me know if you meet with either and I'll do the same.

No, I have the money now. I like to research and tend to overthink everything.

Damn.... I know your are slightly(?) doubting about this treatment but the treatment will help you not just your scars but your damaged(?) skin tone. This treatment is way different from Laser treatments that you are thinking about!!! It will help you skin no matter what!!!

If I had the money I would do it tomorrow :)

I know I should just do it. I hate needles and stuff like this. I'm afraid it could go wrong. I wonder if Dr. Newman and Calabria are doing this for scars. I will call the offices tomorrow.

Hi Ghet,

I am going to call his office in CA and let you know. It is expensive. They remove the fat from your own body. That is where the stem cells come from.

yah...Dr.Calabria does not do PRP injection. He only does stemcell treatment. This is his webstie

http://www.drcalabriablog.com/contact-us/

Prague- I already called both of the offices and they told me that they do stemcell treatment for scar treatment.

Thanks, I didn't know. It isn't advertised on their websites. Do you think they are as good as Dr. Khan. It is easier for me to go to CA than London.

I mean you should get talk to Dr.Calabria & Dr.Newman and they will tell you how confident they are with scars... Their offices are pretty close so you should visit both. I am going to visit both of them when I get my money.

Do you know anyone on this site or just anyone that has gone to either for scars? What kind of reputation do they have?

Unfortunately, I do not know anyone who went to see both of the doctors... On the website as you can see they are on the news and magazines so they seem pretty reputable.

The price ranges from 5000-9500bucks depends how severe is your scar and how many areas are you treating..

Do the stem cells add volume or is it all just healing? Seems the PRP Therapy should be used with the stem cells from what BRD said on here. Where is BRD?

You should ask those question when you see the doctor. I do not know where is BRD. Also, I am currently getting PRP injection.

Are the PRP injections working? How often do you get them? Do they call it Selphyl?

I never heard of Selphyl... I only got PRP injection once... So it's not a miracle but I do see some improvement so far.

Where is the improvement? Is it skin tone? or actual scar healing?
