Hair loss can be an embracing condition affecting your self-esteem. Hair restoration involves reinstating lost hair in an area on your head with thinning or balding. Genetic factors, hormonal changes, medical issues, radiation therapy, specific hair treatments, and extreme stress can lead to hair loss. The professionals at Prime MediSpa can recommend medications, surgical methods, or minimally invasive techniques to treat your hair loss. The treatment procedure your doctor uses depends on the cause of your hair loss. There are many hair restoration techniques, which include:
1. Hair transplants
Hair transplant mainly involves two surgical techniques; Follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE). FUT involves your surgeon removing some skin from the back of your scalp where hair is abundant. The surgeon removes follicles from that skin strap and reinserts them into the area you have hair loss. FUE involves your surgeon extracting hair follicles from a scalp with abundant hair and transplanting them directly to the section where you are experiencing hair loss.
Minoxidil and finasteride are the primary medications doctors recommend to treat hair loss. Minoxidil is an over-the-counter drug and can be in the form of a foam or liquid that you apply to your scalp. It may take several months before your hair starts thickening. Finasteride is an oral pill; you may have to take it for several months before seeing outcomes. You will lose regrown hair if you stop taking these medications.
3. Laser treatments
Laser therapy involves using a device that directs concentrated beams of light into the affected scalp to promote new hair growth. This treatment uses low heat levels, so you will not feel any pain or damage to the surrounding tissues. You do not have any preparations and recovery period, and you may require several treatment sessions to get effective results. Laser therapy can be effective if you have alopecia areata or chemotherapy causes hair loss.
Microneedling is an aesthetic treatment that can help restore lost hair. The procedure involves your specialist using a unique device covered in tiny sterile needles to create punctures in your deeper skin layers. Your body will respond with a strong healing reaction and create new blood vessels. These new blood vessels boost blood circulation and cell growth, promoting hair regrowth. Microneedling treatment gives better results if used alongside other hair loss treatments.
5. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy
Platelet-rich plasma treatment is a safe hair restoration procedure that uses your blood components. The process involves your doctor drawing your blood sample and centrifuging it to isolate platelets. The doctor injects the extracted platelets into the affected scalp, promoting hair growth. Platelets contain particular proteins known as growth factors that cause new cell growth to treat hair loss effectively. PRP also promoted better blood circulation, reducing inflammation.
Hair restoration techniques improve blood circulation, reduce inflammation and stimulate the growth of new cells, promoting hair regrowth. The period your hair takes to grow will depend on your health and the treatment option used.
