- Hair transplants involve removing hair from areas of the scalp that are not prone to hair loss and transplanting it to bald or thinning areas. The hair is placed in tiny groupings of approximately 1 to 5 hairs with special attention to the natural aesthetics of hair growth. This is an effective treatment option for both men and women.
- Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment is an all-natural, non-invasive hair restoration technique that utilizes the patient’s own biologic material, and helps to stimulate hair regrowth as well as reduce the effect of thinning. It is most commonly used to successfully treat a variety of hair loss conditions in both men and women. The procedure involves drawing blood, processing it to harvest the PRP, and finally injecting the scalp with the patient’s own PRP.
