HAIR RESTORATION TREATMENTS
Hair restoration can combat hair loss by encouraging the growth of thick, natural-looking hair. Hair loss can affect both male and female patients. Over time, areas of the scalp may begin to thin due to pattern baldness. Thinning hair can take away from the hairline and affect one’s self-image. Hair restoration can achieve a fuller head of hair using your natural hair follicles. Our specialistd provide a variety of different hair transplant techniques to improve thinning hair, including NeoGraft hair restoration, platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP) for hair loss, the LaserCap LCPRO device, and the HRS-10 Hair Regrowth System. Each of these options can bring about long-lasting improvements to your hairline.
What Causes Hair Loss?
There are many causes of hair loss that have been discovered. Hormonal imbalances, stress, illness, trauma, and more can contribute to the loss of hair. The most common cause of hair loss is pattern baldness. This condition affects both men and women. Over time, pattern baldness can result in a complete loss of hair around certain areas of the scalp, including the crown of the head and the frontal hairline.
WHO IS CONSIDERED AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR HAIR REPLACEMENT?
Platelet Rich Plasma
Tis approach involves our drawing a small amount of blood from the patient and then centrifuging it with specific medicines to concentrate the growth hormones and anti-inflammatory components of the blood. This “PRP” is then placed into a Dermapen, a device that gently and painlessly injects the liquid into hair loss area of the scalp. This process takes less than one hour, and demands no recovery time. With several PRP treatments and the continued application of prescribed topical treatments many women notice their hair loss stops within a month. Soon after, the treated patient’s hair often begins to grow thicker and denser. It is this “lunchtime” treatment approach that has the most potential to help women patients with hair loss. However, it is also important to know that treating female hair loss is challenging and frustrating. At times, the responses to treatment can be less than hoped for and some patient’s grow disappointed with their outcomes. However, all patient’s coming through our center feel comforted they have done everything possible to improve the health and thickness of their hair. Additionally, many women with hair loss are candidates for hair transplantation, but this does not fall into the “lunchtime” treatment category.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER UNDERGOING HAIR RESTORATION?
Patients undergoing NeoGraft® hair restoration can typically return to their daily activities in less than 1 week. Some swelling may be present for a few days, depending on your procedure. Platelet rich plasma patients can usually resume daily activities immediately following treatment. Slight bruising may last for a few days. LaserCap LCPRO and the HRS-10 Hair Regrowth System do not require any healing time. There may be certain restrictions on showering and cleaning your hair following any form of hair restoration. Our hair specialists can discuss these specifics in more detail during your hair restoration consultation.
