Hair Restoration Q & A
What is hair restoration?
Hair restoration is a treatment option to improve the natural growth and thickness of your hair. The goal of treatment is to reverse the signs of premature hair loss and address underlying issues that may affect new hair growth.
Dr. Baron offers full scalp hair restoration services using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to improve the health and appearance of thinning hair and stimulate new growth when treating hair loss.
PRP contains special growth factors that stimulate your hair follicles to produce new hair. Dr. Baron takes your blood and prepares it in a centrifuge to isolate the high concentration of PRP that she uses for injection into precise areas of your scalp.
Am I a candidate for hair restoration?
To determine if PRP hair restoration is right for you, Dr. Baron takes the time to review your personal and family medical history.
She works to identify the potential cause of your hair loss in your family history and also discusses possible medical or environmental factors that can contribute to the loss of hair, including the use of certain medications or supplements.
Dr. Baron may also request blood tests to further assess the underlying reason for hair thinning and loss before recommending PRP hair restoration. If you’re a candidate for the procedure, Dr. Baron customizes a treatment plan to your specific needs and cosmetic goals.
Hair restoration requires no downtime, and Dr. Baron prioritizes your comfort and safety throughout your treatment.
How long does it take to see the results of PRP hair restoration?
Following the injections of PRP into your scalp, you should notice increased hair growth within two months. New hair may be initially noticeable at your crown and hairline. Within four to six months of treatment, you can expect your hair to appear fuller and thicker.
Because PRP hair restoration stimulates the growth of hair, your results always look and feel natural.
To maintain your hair restoration results, Dr. Baron may recommend annual or semi-annual PRP injections. She also recommends treatment with certain medications (spironolactone or finasteride) and topical serum to maintain and promote healthy hair. Routine PRP injections optimize the volume of your hair and help you retain your overall results.
