Just because hair loss is common — one-third of women will see their hair thin and most men will lose hair throughout their lifetime — does not mean you have to accept it. The team at Facial Aesthetic Concepts has multiple methods of treating those emerging bald spots, both surgical and non-surgical.
Many people rightfully shy away from traditional hair surgery because it involves taking a whole strip off your scalp, leaving a good amount of scarring. That is why Facial Aesthetic Concepts offers NeoGraft, an update to this process. We promise this procedure is not your father’s hair restoration surgery.
Rather than a strip, NeoGraft takes individual follicles from the back of your head to implant elsewhere. Doing it in this way is less painful, leaves less scarring, and ultimately proves more effective. It is so easy that you can read or watch a movie while the surgery is happening.
Nevertheless, if surgery still sounds too intense for you, you may be interested in photomodulation. Here, patients put on an LED helmet which emits red light to stimulate the hair follicles. It is simple, it is safe and research shows it helps to grow your hair.
For PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy, the doctor takes your own blood and increases its platelet count. This blood is then put back into your head where the hair is missing and the boost of platelets should help to reactivate the hair follicles.
Surely you have seen commercials for Mioxidil and Finasteride (better known as Rogaine and Propecia, respectively,) though you may be uncertain whether they can work for you, not to mention which one is better. Our doctors are happy to take a look at your individual scalp to give their professional advice on whether you are a good candidate for either of these pharmaceutical options.
A Combination of Procedures
More often than not, the best treatment plan to restore the maximum amount of hair is some combination of the above treatments. Obviously, the precise combination depends largely on the amount of hair you currently have on your head, your price range and your expectations for the treatment.
As for whether you should pursue surgical or non-surgical options, the team at Facial Aesthetic Concepts is happy to examine your scalp and make an expert determination on the proper course of action for your head specifically. To schedule a free consultation, call (949) 313-2600.
