Frequently Asked Questions
What is hair restoration?
We offer a number of treatments for men and women who are experiencing certain types of hair loss or thinning, known as male and female pattern baldness. These advanced treatments in regenerative medicine help regrow the hair follicles and help our patients look and feel their best. Depending on your specific condition, our providers may recommend topical medicine, laser light-therapy or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections, either alone or in combination with human tissue allografts.
Why do men and women lose hair?
There are many different factors that influence why men and women lose their hair or develop pattern baldness. These can factors include simple genetics, auto-immune disease, reduced blood flow to the hair follicles and/or inflammation. When inflammation occurs in the body, it can often reduce or stop natural hair growth.
How does PRP work?
Our bodies produce a number of natural elements and tissues that collectively make up the healing substances our bodies use when we are injured, get sick, or wear out our joints and other body parts. These healing substances are recruited when there’s major inflammation or overt damage. In a place like the scalp, where people suffer from chronic, long-term damage, or genetic loss, the body no longer engages to heal that area.
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is a concentrate of one’s own healing elements that trigger the body’s natural restoration and regeneration. These products are collected and processed into a concentrated solution that is then injected into the areas of the scalp where the thinning is occurring. Through this process, our professionals target damaged follicles, re-introducing the tissues needed to stimulate hair growth and allowing the healing particles to get to work on the repair.
How do human tissue allografts help hair restoration?
Certain human tissue allografts help rejuvenate and “wake up” those hair follicles that have slowed down their ability to grow hair. After the treatment, hair follicles are expected to restart their natural growing process.
What is the process?
We first begin by cleaning the area that will be treated and using an anesthetic to prepare the scalp for treatment. Next, we prepare the Platelet Rich Plasma by drawing your blood and using a centrifuge to separate the PRP from your red blood cells, leaving us a serum that has the concentrated PRP therapy. The PRP can be injected by itself or in combination with human tissue allografts to enhance their effectiveness. While the PRP will provide acceptable results for many, the combination of PRP and human tissue allografts may provide a far more effective means of stimulating the follicles.
