Hair loss is not easy to accept, and in this day and age, you don’t have to. It is recommended that men or women experiencing hair loss seek early medical intervention, especially if they want the best possible results from hair loss treatment. Earlier intervention may be more effective in slowing or stopping the progression of hair loss. Additionally, early treatment can help to preserve existing hair and potentially stimulate new growth. Lastly, it is important to seek professional advice to rule out any underlying medical conditions that may be causing hair loss.
Different hair loss treatments are usually combined to achieve the best results. Let’s talk about some of the solutions and treatments available at a hair restoration clinic.
Low-Level Laser Therapy
This treatment involves using low-level lasers to increase blood flow to the scalp, stimulating circulation and cell turnover in the scalp, which can lead to new hair growth and thicker, healthier hair over time. Low-level laser therapy is usually combined with other treatments, like minoxidil and finasteride, for better results.
ACell® injections are designed to help the body heal at a cellular level and activate stem cells in the hair follicles. ACell® injections reactivate the hair follicles through injections into the upper scalp layers, from the hairline to the crown, and stop hair loss, stimulate new hair growth, and strengthen weakened hair. ACell® is a regenerative medicine company that developed the ACell MatriStem® technology, which is often combined with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to achieve hair treatment goals.
Allograft involves the use of amniotic tissue, which contains bioactive mechanisms that assist with tissue repair and wound healing. Amniotic fluid and tissue contain amino acids, growth factors, and cytokines, which aid in the migration and proliferation of cells to the site of the injury, forming a scaffold for new tissue growth. Allograft can keep more hair on your head and prevent the miniaturization process. Allograft may be combined with PRP therapy (see below) and is commonly used to increase graft survival and accelerate wound healing after hair transplant surgery.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
PRP therapy is a revolutionary hair loss treatment that involves the use of the patient’s own blood and the growth factors that are contained within it. This treatment involves taking platelets from your blood and injecting them into the scalp to promote hair preservation and growth.
Hair Transplant Surgery
This surgical procedure involves taking healthy hairs from one area of the scalp and transplanting them into thinning or balding areas. Hair transplant surgery is a permanent solution for hair loss, and the results are often boosted using low-level laser therapy and regenerative methods, such as ACell®, Allograft, and PRP therapy.
