Photobiomodulation (light therapy) using the LaserCap® improves mitochondrial function, releases growth factors, and decreases inflammation, resulting in decreased hair shedding, increased growth, and improving hair characteristics. The LaserCap® is used 30 minutes every other day.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma is a growth factor-rich blood fraction, concentrated from a patient’s own blood, and injected into an area of hair loss. PRP may work by enhancing stem cell activity, and may decrease shedding and increase hair growth. After three monthly treatments, additional treatments will be performed every six months.
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)
Scalp Micropigmentation is a permanent form of camouflage whereby tiny pigment dots are placed into the upper dermal layer, producing the appearance of stubble and creating the illusion of hair density. SMP can be used to hide scars, add apparent density to an operative area, and add apparent density to a non-operative area. Three treatments are required, separated by two weeks.
Topical camouflage (Dermatch®) is a temporary form of camouflage, in which a special make-up product is applied to the scalp, decreasing the visible contrast between scalp and hair, and creating the illusion of greater density.
Hair transplant surgery involves moving healthy, permanently growing hairs from the back of the head to areas of hair loss. Large sessions can be performed in a single day, often producing a dramatic change in appearance.
Hair loss management requires regular follow-up visits to monitor progress and make necessary changes to your treatment program. Please make sure you keep your next appointment, and call us at 216-932-5200 if you are unsure about your treatment plan.
