Microneedling and PRP/PRF for Hair restoration

Regain & Retain YOUR YOUTHFUL LOOK

Hair loss can be an embarrassing issue. Male and female pattern hair loss is a genetic problem that can leave you feeling helpless. Options, like prescription drugs, are often partially effective and carry the potential for unwanted side effects. Surgical hair restoration can be expensive and does not treat the underlying medical problems. Now there is an affordable way for you to regain your hair density back without surgery or harmful side effects. We have 2 options for you to explore on this web page: Microneedling/Microchanneling with infusion of donor growth factors and hair loss inhibitors. And, in the second section, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for hair restoration which involves a simple injection of your own platelets into the vascular layer of your scalp. PRP for Hair Regrowth

  • Increases blood supply to the follicle
  • Increases shaft size (thickness)
  • Triggers and maintains the growth phase
  • Controls hair growth cycle
  • Decreases hair loss

Microneedling (also known as microchanneling) and Procell serum infusion

PROCELL THERAPIES’ HAIR REGROWTH SERUM

How it Works

As we age increased levels of Dihydrotestoterone (DHT) can effectively put the dermal papilla/hair follicles into a telogen, “sleeping” phase. If hair remains in a telogen phase long enough the follicle cannot be reactivated and balding occurs. Procell Therapies Hair Regrowth Serum (HRS) disrupts the occupation of receptors on the dermal papilla prone to DHT contamination, re-awakening dormant follicles to grow hair once again. Treatment works best on younger patients who have just begun balding, but impressive results have been seen even in older patients.

Additionally, thinning hair may be caused by a scalp damaged by a dry climate, nutrition, stress, certain drugs, chlorine, and/or environmental exposure. Over many years, the skin of the scalp produces less growth factors and becomes less efficient at repairing damage. Because of this, the condition of the scalp can eventually deteriorate to the point where the connective tissue hardens (fibrosis) or hair follicles become miniaturized. In the case of fibrosis, hair is unable to grow through the hardened scalp. Miniaturization renders the hair follicles unable to perform their normal growth cycle. Both conditions can lead to a cessation of hair production and the death of hair follicles. Stem cells lining the hair follicles are crucial for production of hair, and the GF-technology ingredients in this concentrated serum are selected to provide support to these stem cells, so hair can re-grow. HRS improves the overall condition of the scalp, rejuvenating damaged hair follicles and increasing circulation of nutrients for healthy hair. HRS incorporates recent advances in hair follicle science. Specialized techniques influence bone marrow mesenchymal stem cell cultures to produce conditioned media focused on hair growth (Wnt-1a pathway) while twelve bio-identical growth factors and cytokines, each with proven efficacy in hair follicle stimulation, are added to make this the most scientifically advanced product of its type.

PRP/PRF (Platelet Rich Plasma)

How PRP Works

Platelets contain healing growth factors. Those growth factors are like signal callers that give instructions to your tissue to regenerate and multiply. This has lead different fields of medicine to utilize PRP for wound healing to speed up recovery time and regrow healthier, stronger tissue. Now doctors have discovered new benefits for hair thickening and regrowth. With PRP for Hair, your growth factors and stem cells work together to reverse the miniaturization of the hair follicle and jumpstarting dormant hair back into the growth stage.

Procedure:

  • Blood Draw: A small amount of the patient's blood is drawn.
  • Centrifugation: The blood is processed in a centrifuge to separate and concentrate the platelets.
  • Application: The PRP is then applied or injected into the targeted area.
