Why do I need hair restoration?
Hair restoration includes several procedures to regrow hair in thinning and balding areas. You can lose hair for many reasons, including:
- Emotional stress
- Fungal infections
- Hormonal imbalances
- Alopecia areata (an autoimmune disease)
- Traction alopecia (hair loss due to tight braids or ponytails)
- Androgenetic alopecia (inherited hair loss)
Androgenetic alopecia is the most common cause of hair loss. Also called male-pattern and female-pattern baldness, this condition occurs when your hair follicles are sensitive to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT makes the follicles shrink and stop growing hair.
How does hair restoration work?
Your provider at Garcia Weight Loss Aesthetics & Hormone Therapy offers three hair restoration options:
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
PRP is made from a sample of your blood, then using a centrifuge to separate platelets and plasma. When PRP reaches the follicle, it releases growth factors that reduce inflammation, stimulates healing, and restore healthy follicles. As a result, you experience new hair growth and increased hair thickness.
The Sunetics laser uses low-level laser therapy (LLLT) to increase blood flow, stimulating healing in the hair follicle with a boost of nutrients, oxygen, and your body’s natural regenerative cells. LLLT treatments also reduce inflammation and help remove harmful DHT.
PhytoTress is a line of hair care products containing TrichoTech™ technology, a phytocomplex that balances and restores the follicle and your scalp. The phytocomplex consists of gentle, natural plant extracts.
The PhytoTress products come in different forms, including a solution, foam, and hair cleansers and conditioners. You can also get a cream for restoring eyelashes and eyebrows.
What should I expect during hair restoration?
For PRP treatments, your provider takes a sample of your blood and processes it. Then they inject PRP into thinning and balding areas or use a microneedle device to create small wounds and place PRP into the tiny openings.
If you decide to use LLLT, you sit in a comfortable chair, and your provider places the device above your head. During the 20-minute procedure, you can read, use a smartphone or tablet, or just relax.
When using PhytoTress products, your provider explains how to use them and then prescribes them so you can use them at home.
