Jupiter, FL Cosmetic Facial Surgeon Offers Various Hair Regrowth Options for Patients
Dr. Mardirossian and his team at Palm Beach Plastics offer these and more to help patients enjoy a full head of thick, luxurious hair.
Scalp micropigmentation does not stimulate the regrowth of hair, but it can help to reduce the appearance of thinning hair in a non-surgical manner. It is ideal for patients who are not suitable candidates for follicle transplant surgery and for those who simply prefer a non-surgical treatment option. Scalp micropigmentation involves utilizing needles, much like tattooing, to create the appearance of hair. Though it is not real hair, it can significantly reduce the amount of contrast between a patient's hair color and his or her scalp, this reducing the appearance of thin spots. Scalp micropigmentation is also ideal for patients who want to cover scars on their scalps from previous injuries or hair transplant procedures, as well.
Follicular Regener-8 (FR-8)
Follicular Regener-8 is another non-surgical treatment that can tremendously boost hair restoration. It is a quick, simple, and virtually painless treatment option that involves using patients' very own platelet-rich plasma to stimulate hair follicles. The staff takes each patient's blood and separates the plasma in a centrifuge. Then, the plasma is injected directly into the patient's scalp in the areas that are noticeably thinning. Over time, this can help to stimulate the follicles in such a way that they begin to produce hair. The treatment is ideal for patients who have alopecia, and it works best when it is performed with other procedures like hair transplants. It takes about an hour to complete the procedure and there is no recovery time.
Hair Transplantation Surgery
Hair transplantation surgery is a surgical outpatient procedure. Most patients will require one or two different sessions to provide the expected results. Local anesthetic is used to numb both the donor areas and the recipient areas on the scalp. Then, the surgeon removes areas of hair-bearing scalp from the sides and back of the patient's head. Afterward, the donor sites are sutured closed. The donor hair is then split into grafts consisting of only two or three hairs, and these grafts are placed in small incisions in the recipient areas of the scalp. Maximum results may not be realized for anywhere from eight to 12 months, but unlike the other options, hair transplantation surgery gives patients the opportunity to grow and manage their very own hair.
