413 Medical Aesthetics treats hair loss with injection therapy to restore hair follicles naturally.
This is a treatment during which the patient’s own blood gets drawn, processed, then injected into the scalp to trigger natural hair growth for hair loss or balding patients.
This procedure increases the blood supply to the hair follicle, increasing hair count and thickness, and extending the growth phase of the hair cycle. This procedure generally works best in a three-treatment package, spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
Your blood is drawn — typically from your arm — and put into a centrifuge (a machine that spins rapidly to separate fluids of different densities).
After about 10 minutes in the centrifuge, your blood will have separated into in three layers:
The platelet-rich plasma is drawn up into a syringe and then injected into areas of the scalp that need increased hair growth.
Regenerative Therapy can also be used as part of a facial routine (“Vampire Facial”) with micro needling to address fine lines, scars, sun damage and skin thickness and laxity. The plasma is re-introduced into the skin topically or by injection top encourage smoother, tighter and thicker skin
You may experience some swelling at the sites of injection on the first day. Some patients experience a very mild headache on injection day. The day after treatment you can resume the use of your normal hair care or topical scalp products.
Treatments may be administered anywhere from 1-3 months apart, and are most effective when administered in a series of three treatments. After that series, single treatments spaced 6-12 months apart will help to maintain your results.
Visible improvement can be noticed in about two to six months.
The procedure can be a little uncomfortable, but most report that it is relatively painless.
Additional tips to avoid are vigorous exercise routines, sun and heat exposure for 2 days post-treatment. Minimize alcohol consumption, caffeine, and cigarettes for 2 days before and after treatment.
