Non-Surgical Hair Restoration
If you have thinning of the hair with loss of fullness and growth of the hair, a new remarkable non-surgical treatment is now available at the Plastic SurgeryCenter of Baton Rouge.. PRP(Platelet Rich Plasma) that is processed from your own blood is injected into the scalp to regenerate the hair. PRP contains your own growth factors the activates dormant hair follicles. this stimulates hair growth that results in healthier and fuller hair and decreases further hair loss.
The PRP is injected with a series of injections over the entire scalp or to the localized areas.
Depending upon the areas treated the procedure takes about 90 minutes in office. There is minimal downtime. You can wash your hair after the treatment. Four to six treatment spaced two weeks apart are required for best results. Treatment is effective for both men and women. This treatment will not grow new hair. PRP will not work if you are bald and do not have hair.
Micro Hair Grafts
If you have hair loss with no growth, new hair growth can only be accomplished with hair grafting. For men with loss of hair there is a hereditary susceptibility of the receptors in the hair follicles of the temple,med and crown of the scalp to a hormone DHT(Dihydrotestosterone) that causes hair not to grow. The hair of the lower back scalp however is not affected by this hormone. A ribbon of hair is therefore removed from this area for the hair grafts. The donor scalp is closed in a fine line and concealed with the overlying hair.The strip of hair is divided into individual grafts with 1-3 hair each. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is added to the grafts to increase viability and growth. The hair grafts are then inserted without sutures into the previously selected areas of baldness. This provides your own continued hair growth in a natural looking appearance.
