What Is an Allograft?
An allograft is one of several nonsurgical hair restoration treatments we offer here at Darling Hair Restoration in Liberty, Missouri. The allograft product we use is derived from natural amniotic tissues and has been used clinically for over 100 years. The human amniotic tissues in the allograft contain growth factor proteins, cytokines, collagen, hyaluronic acid, secretomes, and are naturally rich in anti-inflammatory factors.
The allograft decreases the number of treatments needed to maintain your hair. For optimal results, hair restoration specialist Dr. Scott Darling usually administers it in conjunction with PRP therapy.
What Is PRP?
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a concentration derived from your own blood – a rich source of specialized proteins called growth factors that stimulate stem cell activity in dormant hair follicles for up to 3-4 months.
Why Allograft + PRP for Hair Loss?
Early intervention is best. Men and women over the age of 18 who are early in the progression of hair loss benefit the most from Allograft + PRP therapy. Regular treatments with Allograft + PRP keep more hair on your head by protecting targeted hair follicles from starting the miniaturization process and renewing those that have already started to decline.
Combined therapy. Individuals with more advanced hair loss considering surgical hair restoration will benefit from combining Allograft + PRP with surgery. Allograft + PRP technology improves the outcome of a hair transplant procedure, yielding increased graft survival, improved donor scar healing, and faster recovery. Allograft + PRP is indicated for all surgical restorations as the optimal solution for healing.
Male and Female Hair Loss
Allograft + PRP therapy protects hair from additional shedding, renews miniaturizing hairs for improved growth, and restores hair quality and quantity for patients with thinning hair. Allograft + PRP is applicable for:
- Male and female hereditary hair loss
- Alopecia areata
- Hypotrichosis (decreased hair growth) of the eyebrows
An allograft treatment is an option for patients who’ve had surgical hair restoration previously and want to:
- Increase hair density without more surgery
- Maintain their hair without using medication like Propecia or Rogaine
New hair growth becomes visible in most cases within 4-6 months after Allograft + PRP injection procedure. Hair continues to thicken over a period of 12-15 months. These results last for months, and even years, before regression may begin to occur. However, maintaining an active follow-up relationship with Dr. Darling will ensure an up-to-date comprehensive plan to know when it is ideal for another procedure to keep hair growth thriving.
