Hair restoration is a service available at Avanity Advanced Aesthetics that helps improve hair thickness and growth. Hair loss is a common problem that affects all types of people.
There are many causes of hair loss; however, androgenic alopecia is one of the most common. Also known as male- or female-pattern baldness, androgenic alopecia affects the hair follicle, causing a shorter hair growth cycle and a delay in new hair growth.
At Avanity Advanced Aesthetics, Ms. Salarda offers hair restoration treatments using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to improve hair growth and slow down hair loss.
Ms. Salarda determines if you’re a candidate for hair restoration treatments after an initial consultation. She is an experienced nurse practitioner and certified aesthetic nurse specialist that conducts a comprehensive exam to understand the root cause of your hair loss to provide the right treatment.
No single treatment works for all types of hair loss. However, PRP is an effective treatment for many types, including androgenic alopecia.
Hair restoration at Avanity Advanced Aesthetics works by providing your hair follicles with the specialized proteins and growth factors needed to improve function.
PRP is a form of regenerative medicine made from a sample of your blood. It contains a high concentration of platelets, specialized proteins, and growth factors, which are the healing properties in your blood.
When injected into the scalp at the areas where you have hair loss or hair thinning, the healing properties in the PRP stimulate hair follicle activity and lengthen the hair growth cycle.
Ms. Salarda customizes your hair restoration treatment plan to match your needs and reviews the details at your initial consultation. She first draws a sample of blood to create your PRP and then injects the PRP into your scalp.
Hair restoration treatments only take a few minutes and require no downtime.
You need to repeat the injections once a month for three months and then once every three to six months.
You may start to see improvements in your hair about two or three months after starting your hair restoration treatments. Improvements in hair growth and thickness continue over the next several months.
