Hair restoration is any type of treatment that encourages the natural hair growth process. Unlike a surgical hair transplant, which takes hair from one part of your scalp and implants it into an area where you have thinning hair, restoration techniques promote natural hair growth.
Hair loss is a common complaint in aging adults. While most people experience some level of thinning hair and balding as they age, genetics can cause you to lose more hair earlier than you might expect. Other common reasons for hair loss include:
Pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, and andropause are all conditions that cause hormonal changes that can lead to either temporary or permanent hair loss.
Certain medications, including those prescribed for depression, arthritis, cancer, and high blood pressure, may lead to premature balding and thinning hair.
Chronic stress or a sudden emotional event can cause you to lose your hair temporarily. If you’re feeling stressed, you may notice more hair in your hairbrush or shower than ever before.
Many tight hairstyles and chemical treatments can eventually cause hair loss. If you experience scalp scarring from these treatments, your hair loss may become permanent.
A nutritional deficiency may also cause hair loss.
ANU Medspa offers several different types of hair restoration, including:
Amniotic fluid contains plenty of cellular signal markers and growth factors that can stimulate localized tissue to promote natural hair growth.
Exosomes contain DNA, RNA, and protein that can signal nearby cells to promote healing. This response triggers the growth of new cells and tissues, which can encourage hair follicles to produce new growth.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a substance ANU Medspa derives from your blood that contains growth factors. When injected into or applied to the scalp, PRP can promote healthy hair growth.
The umbilical cord contains a variety of stem cells that can promote cell regeneration and repair damaged tissues to stimulate new growth in your hair follicles.
The Sunetics hair lamp cold laser energy to stimulate your hair follicles so they produce new hair growth. The Sunetics Laser is FDA-cleared for individuals who experience thinning hair and hair loss. It’s a noninvasive, pain-free procedure that can help you get a fuller, thicker head of hair.
Regardless of the treatment you choose, hair restoration treatments contain growth factors that the team either injects or massages directly into your scalp to generate new growth. These treatments are non-surgical and minimally invasive so that you can return to your normal activities immediately after each visit.
Most people need at least one treatment a month for three months to see maximum results. You should notice new hair growth after 4-6 weeks, but the most visible results occur about 6-12 months after treatment.
