Everything You Need to Know About Hair Restoration

Hair loss is something that we all dread will happen at some point, but we have little control over it. In fact, 42 percent of men go through extensive hair loss by the time they are 49, and the percentage only increases as they get older. 

When your hair refuses to stay on your scalp through natural means, a good option is a hair restoration procedure. Whether you wish to awaken your dormant follicles or add hair where it is lacking, there are plenty of options for you. In this blog, you will learn more about the types of hair treatments you can choose from at Park Avenue Medical Spa.

What Is Hair Restoration?

Hair restoration is the process of improving your hair density using various treatment options. It can be performed surgically or non-surgically, awakening your roots and allowing more hair to grow in the long run. 

Hair restoration can be used by patients who lost their hair due to thinning, whether genetic or environmental. Patients with alopecia are often the best candidates for the procedure, but hair loss due to stress could also be addressed. Hair restoration works best if the treatment is applied in the early stages of hair loss. 

Types of Hair Restoration Treatments

There are several types of hair restoration we offer at Park Avenue Medical Spa, including:

1. Fotona HAIRestart®

When your hair begins to thin, it is often a sign that your follicles are becoming weaker and no longer able to grow. Fotona has been used for treating skin issues and reducing imperfections, but it can also restart your hair growth when applied in the right setting.

Aa a non-ablative laser, this procedure gently stimulates your hair follicles using Er: YAG technology. This improves blood flow through your scalp, nourishing the follicles and encouraging them to grow thick, healthy hair strands. Since the procedure is non-invasive, you can enjoy the results without the worry of downtime. 

2. NeoGraft®

About one in thirteen men undergo hair transplant surgery to restore their hair. Transplants take the follicles from a specific part of your scalp where you have plenty of hair and transfer it to the areas where it is lacking. 

NeoGraft® is a procedure Dr. Tchelebi uses to perform follicular unit extraction, transplanting the hair follicle by follicle. The method uses automated technology, taking away the need for incisions and stitches. This way, you can see notable results with minimal recovery. 

3. Microneedling

For those who do not wish to undergo a transplant or use a laser on their scalp, microneedling has proven to be a good alternative. Microneedling creates multiple micro-channels in your skin, which activates your skin’s healing response. This starts an accelerated cell renewal process to heal the micro-injuries you just created on your scalp. 

As cell activity starts due to the cell renewal process, the follicles become stronger. When combined with the proper nutrients, the treatment goes deep inside the scalp, protecting it. The procedure is generally recommended for those with thin hair but still enough follicles in their scalp to grow hair. 

When to Expect Results?

Hair restoration results often take some time to make themselves noticeable, regardless of whether you choose a transplant or a scalp treatment. For instance, after procedures like microneedling or laser, it might take two to three months for the root to be awakened and more for the hair to grow visibly. 

For transplants, it can take several months for hair to grow from the hair follicle. While you can enjoy a fuller hairline in five to six months, it can take up to 18 months to see the final results.
