What is hair restoration?

The team at Regenerative Medical Spa offers SmartGraft® for hair restoration, which uses follicular unit extraction (FUE) technology to restore your hairline quickly and naturally.

The innovative hair restoration system allows the team at Regenerative Medical Spa to extract individual micro hair grafts from the back of your head and transplant them into the areas of the scalp you’re experiencing thinning or balding.

What are the benefits of hair restoration?

In-office hair restoration at Regenerative Medical Spa offers many benefits compared to traditional hair restoration procedures like the strip method. The benefits include:

  • Natural-looking results
  • Minimal scarring
  • Only need one in-office treatment
  • Little downtime

Additionally, with hair restoration at Regenerative Medical Spa, the aesthetic specialists place the hair grafts in the most aesthetically pleasing areas of your scalp so you get the best possible results.

What can I expect during hair restoration?

Hair restoration at Regenerative Medical Spa is an in-office treatment that takes about five hours to complete. To ease discomfort, your provider performs your hair restoration under local anesthesia.

First, using the SmartGraft device, your provider extracts hair follicles from the back of your head and then implants them into the balding areas of your scalp.

The team provides specific instructions on how to take care of your scalp after your procedure, but you should be able to resume most of your usual activities within two days of your hair restoration treatment.

How long does it take to see results after hair restoration?

You may notice an improvement in your hairline within three months of your hair restoration treatment, but you may not see the full effects of your treatment until about 12-14 months because of hair’s cyclical nature. The results are permanent.

Is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) used for hair restoration?

Yes, PRP is also a hair restoration option. PRP is a form of regenerative medicine made from a sample of your own blood that contains a high concentration of platelets and growth factors.

When injected into your scalp, the healing properties in PRP prolong the growing phase of the hair cycle to improve hair thickness and health. To get the best results from PRP hair restoration, you need to start treatment early.

With PRP hair restoration, the team provides monthly PRP injections for three months, and then injections every 3-4 months for up to two years.

The team at Regenerative Medical Spa can review all your hair restoration options during your consultation and help you determine the method best suited to meet your needs.
