Why transplant hair when you can regrow it?
There has never been a more exciting time for patients who are losing their hair, both men and women!
For years people suffering from hair loss have used daily medication like Minoxidil and Finasteride. Others have undergone long and expensive sessions of hair transplantation, moving the hair from a thicker area of the head to a thinning area. Obviously, this has its limitations and is certainly not suitable for everyone.
FINALLY, A RELIABLE AND EFFECTIVE SOLUTION!
Patients who are thinning can now regrow their hair. This is done with state-of-the-art techniques at Hubbard Plastic Surgery using the patient’s own tissues, either with one’s own blood that is spun to make PRF or with one’s own fat prepared to isolate the stromal cells.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
A patient’s own blood is processed to separate the platelets and white cells which contain growth factors. Injecting these growth factors into the scalp stimulate the hair follicles and increase blood flow to the area. This has been proven to regrow hair that is thinning, not completely gone.
Another valuable method uses one’s own processed fat. After harvesting a small amount of fat from the patient with local anesthetic, it is processed into nanofat. This valuable substance contains stromal cells which have been shown to stimulate hair follicle regrowth and have positive effects on the hair cycle. In one study it was more powerful than PRP.
WHAT IS BEST FOR ME?
Having 2 proven options for regrowing hair is exciting for men and women who are losing their hair. Using computer analysis of highly magnified photos, we can actually measure your hair shaft diameter and hair density, allowing us to treat more effectively and document results. With a consultation, we can help you decide if you are a candidate and which option is best for you.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTERWARDS?
There is no down-time with this procedure. It is done while you are awake, often in less than an hour. Results can often be noticed one month after treatment in some cases, but in general, three treatments are recommended 30 days apart. Fewer treatments may be necessary with nanofat. With either technique, maintenance therapy will be necessary, likely one session twice a year.
