Hair Restoration Q&A
What is hair restoration?
Hair restoration is a blanket term used to describe a series of cosmetic and regenerative medicine treatments that encourage hair growth or the appearance of thicker, fuller hair.
About one in five Americans suffer from hair loss. Though common, hair loss can negatively affect your confidence, self-esteem, and overall quality of life. If you’ve tried various over-the-counter treatments without a significant improvement in the thickness or appearance of your hair, hair restoration treatments can help.
What are some common causes of hair loss?
Hair loss affects both men and women. Common underlying causes include:
- Genetics or family history
- Hormonal changes
- Taking certain prescription medications
- Radiation therapy
- Medical conditions like alopecia
- Experiencing a stressful event
You might also experience hair loss as a result of excessive hairstyling, excessive hair dying, or hairstyles that pull your hair tight, such as pigtails or cornrows.
Are there different types of hair restoration treatment?
At European Wellness Cosmedical, Britta offers several types of hair restoration treatment, including:
Exosomes are micro-vesicles that play a crucial role in cell communication. They contain a high volume of growth factors that encourage your body’s natural healing response. At European Wellness Cosmedical, Britta uses XoFlo exosomes isolated from mesenchymal stem cells. They activate and recruit cells in your scalp to encourage circulation, stimulating new hair growth.
Scalp micropigmentation (SMP)
Scalp micropigmentation uses specialized tattoo ink to provide the appearance of thicker, fuller hair. During this type of treatment, Britta uses an electric tattoo device to create tiny layered dots that replicate the look of hair on your scalp. The technique that Britta uses provides natural-looking depth and definition. It’s also an excellent treatment option for men experiencing premature balding.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is similar to treatment with exosomes. However, instead of using stem cells, PRP uses your body’s own platelets, or growth factors, to promote healing. It’s thought that injecting a solution of platelets into areas of thinning hair reawakens dormant follicles and encourages hair growth.
What type of hair restoration treatment is right for me?
Only a qualified aesthetic professional like Britta can determine the type of hair restoration option that will most benefit you.
Following an in-office consultation, review of your medical history, and a discussion of your goals for treatment, Britta can make recommendations that align with your budget and individual goals.
