HAIR RESTORATION

Hair Restoration with Laser Treatment, Laser Treatment with PRP or Laser Treatment with PRP and PDO

Laser Hair Restoration 

Androgenetic Alopecia is the most common type of hair loss pattern, affecting 50% of women and up to 96% of Caucasian men.

In this condition, due to hormonal effects usually controlled by genetics and other factors, the hair follicle normal function is subdued resulting in a gradually increasing time between the follicle “resting time” (telogen phase)  and the active growth time (anagen phase). The anagen or growth phase is also subdued and, since hair growth stops, hair loss is experienced.

Androgenetic Alopecia is “non-scarring”, meaning there is no permanent destruction of the hair follicle; herein lies the potential to reactivate the dormant hair follicle.

There are many modalities that can be used to restore and maintain our hair. Hair transplants are expensive, and not everyone is a suitable candidate. Then, after the hair transplant you still have to struggle to maintain the hair you got. Of course, we have medications that may help us maintain the hair, but they have to used consistently, or the effects will stop.

LASER TREATMENT

At MLA we have the X-Restart for the Fotona Dynamis SP. This hand piece is the safest and most efficient way of stimulating the hair cycle but improving the blood supply to the hair follicles and increasing the hair shaft density and thickness.

The X-Restart handpiece administers laser energy to the scalp area without causing breakage of the existing hair shafts, a side effect of most hand held handpieces. The X-Restart is designed like a hair brush, and it glides in direct contact with the scalp during the treatment.

This is a non-ablative process, which means there is no damage to the scalp, and no downtime. No anesthesia is necessary, and the treatment is tolerated very well.

 

Once a month treatment over several months (4-6 visits) are usually required to see results.

Laser and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Adding PRP to the baseline laser treatment enhances the effectiveness of the treatment. The X-Restart handpiece creates microchannels in the scalp that facilitate the diffusion of the active platelet growth factors that, together with the laser energy, activate the hair follicle into action.

In order to do the treatment, we draw a small amount of your blood and process it to separate the platelets from the blood, then concentrate their growth factors. This can be injected into the scalp or applied to it; we usually do both.

The procedure is tolerated well and we use local anesthesia for the injectable part of the protocol.

The treatment with PRP can be repeated at 1–2-month intervals, and laser radiation can be used in conjunction with the PRP sessions. This treatment can be beneficial for both – women and men.

Laser, PRP and PDOs

PDO threads or polydioxanone monofilament threads are used in aesthetic procedures, such as non-surgical face lifting. The materials used in their manufacture, however, have a long history as absorbable suture materials. Skin tissue responds to the threads by promoting the release of
