Hair loss is a common issue among both women and men. People who aren’t happy with this will find they have numerous treatment options available to combat the problem. Two of these procedures are PRP Therapy and FUE hair transplantation offered by Dr. Bradford Patt in Houston.
PRP Hair Loss Therapy is the latest and most innovative hair restoration treatment option available today that is proving to be effective for both men and women who are struggling with hair loss. This non-surgical method of natural hair regrowth involves stimulating hair follicles with your own blood. After blood is drawn from your arm, it’s spun in a centrifuge. During this process, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is separated from the red blood cells and removed. Then Dr. Patt skillfully injects the PRP serum directly into the scalp areas where there is thinning or hair loss. The beauty of PRP Therapy is that it stimulates the growth of the hair follicles, so you see a fuller head of hair within a few months. Once initial results start to appear, most patients have to go through a few repeated treatments to experience full results.
PRP Therapy works because it promotes regeneration of the hair follicles. Tissue healing and regeneration are accelerated, and new cells begin to grow. It’s been proven effective with no downtime or side-effects as the plasma comes from the patient’s own body.
FUE Hair Transplantation
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplants involve the harvesting of individual hair grafts one by one. A tool is used during the extraction process to remove the grafts from the chosen donor area before placing them in the desired location. Men often choose this option as it offers a permanent solution, doesn’t result in a linear scaring, offers subtle or natural-looking results, and allows them to wear their hair naturally short. The recovery time is very short, making it an excellent choice for those who engage in strenuous activities and don't want to recover over a prolonged period of time. In addition, those who have undergone strip harvesting of hair grafts may find this allows them to hide the scar from the previous procedure.
If you live in the greater Houston area and are dealing with hair loss, it’s important to connect with Dr. Patt of Houston Center for Facial Plastic Surgery. Both men and women have also benefited from NeoGraft®, a technically advanced procedure option for FUE hair transplantation and restoration.
There are quite a few innovative hair restoration options available today; therefore, when it comes to hair loss or thinning hair, patients no longer have to suffer. Consulting with Dr. Patt is the first step to learning which options will work best for your particular condition and type of hair loss. Besides PRP Therapy and FUE hair transplantation, there are also other available treatment options, along with supplemental hair care products and vitamins, that help promote regrowth and get you the best results possible.
