What is Hair Restoration?
Hair restoration is a treatment for men and women who experience certain types of hair loss and thinning, known as male and female pattern baldness. Dr. Coley and his staff offer hair restoration that helps prevent further hair loss through surgical and non-surgical treatments.
What are the Benefits of Hair Restoration?
If you have researched hair restoration or hair transplantation, you may have found that most solutions require strips of the scalp to be surgically removed. This technique results in linear scars that are visible because hair does not grow along the scar line. At Coley Cosmetic & Hand Surgery Center, P.A., we offer three types of hair restoration:
- NeoGraft® FUE system that harvests individual hair grafts and produces no linear scarring
- PRP (platlet rich plasma) for hair loss in men and women that capitalizes on growth factors in your blood
- Viviscal Professional supplements and hair products to help slow hair loss
Am I a Good Hair Restoration Candidate?
If you are experiencing hair loss or hair thinning, the first step is to be evaluated to determine the reason(s) why. This involves a thorough medical history, blood work and even a biopsy. Once the reason for hair loss is confirmed, then treatment options can be tailored to the individual patient. The average age of hair restoration patients is 30-49 years old.
What is the Procedure for Hair Restoration?
NeoGraft® is often recommended in cases of visible hair loss as characterized by the “Ludwig Scale.” Prior to the treatment, the back of your hair is trimmed to allow access to the area where the grafts are harvested. The procedure is performed in the office and only requires an oral sedative and local anesthetic. The NeoGraft® system removes small grafts of donor hairs that are separated and implanted into the treatment area.
PRP therapy can be performed as part of the NeoGraft® procedure or as a standalone treatment. Here a small amount of blood is taken, then processed, giving a high concentration of platlet rich plasma, which can be injected into the scalp or placed topically on the graft harvest or donor site. PRP has been shown to aid in healing during the NeoGraft® procedure, and as a viable option for those who are not receiving NeoGraft® hair restoration.
PRP treatment usually involves several injections to receive maximal results.
Dr. Coley has a very high success rate with these techniques.
What is the Recovery Time for Hair Restoration?
The recovery for each of our hair restoration treatments varies from none, to a few days, to a week or two, depending on your occupation. Dr. Coley discusses the details of your procedure and recovery during the consultation.
Hair restoration and regrowth take time because of the hair growth cycle, and at times may take several months to see new growth. With NeoGraft®, new growth is seen in several months and may take up to a year to see the final results.
