Hair loss and hair thinning can be a frustrating aesthetic problem for any man or woman. However, the good news is that it is possible to fight hair loss and hair thinning, provided the patient seeks professional help at a reputable hair restoration med spa.
A number of treatment options are available today for hair restoration. The treatment provider will determine the appropriate option or a combination of treatments based on the underlying cause and extent of hair loss.
Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides hair restoration treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and surrounding locations.
A wide range of nutraceuticals and other dietary supplements are now available for supporting hair re-growth. These supplements are formulated with minerals and vitamins to promote the hair growth cycle and support the scalp.
Some of these supplements have shown to maintain hair in their growth phase or extend the hair growth cycle (which could have become shorter due to aging or other factors.)
Certain men’s supplements focus on reducing male pattern hair loss by blocking targeted hormones, while women’s supplements may be designed to reduce stress and inflammation that could be causing hair loss.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
Human cells require WBCs, growth factors and other proteins to maximize their functional capacity. These elements are present in abundance in the bloodstream.
PRP therapy involves separating these vital components from the blood, and injecting them directly into the balding areas of the scalp to stimulate and rejuvenate the hair follicles.
The med spa treatment provider may recommend three monthly treatments initially. Additional PRP therapy sessions may be scheduled every quarter, but this will depend on the patient’s hair loss pattern and their individual response to the treatment.
Traditional hair transplant surgery leaves a significant scar in the back of the scalp, and also involves extended downtime. SmartGraft hair restoration is an advanced and automated follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique that enables discreet moving of donor hair to the balding sites of the scalp without any scarring.
SmartGraft procedure ensures that the hair grafts remain sufficiently cooled and hydrated in order to improve their preservation rate during transplantation.
The result is thicker and more natural looking hair in a minimally invasive way. Patients can start experiencing new hair growth in about three months, and will obtain full results in 12 to 14 months.
Laser Therapy for Hair Re-growth
Advanced low-level laser therapy may be used individually or in combination with other treatments to promote hair re-growth. The low level laser device will deliver focused beams of laser energy to the scalp in a precise manner.
The laser heat will gently activate proteins and encourage scalp oxygenation to stimulate blood supply and deliver nutrition to the thinning or weak hair follicles.
Topical and Oral Medications
Over the counter Minoxidil (Rogaine) medication and prescription-based Finasteride (Propecia) may be recommended for hair loss and hair thinning for appropriate male and female candidates.
However, the limitation with these oral and topical treatments is that the hair re-growth is not permanent and the hair begins to fall again once the treatment is stopped. The patient should discuss with their treatment provider for the best options in their case.
Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and nearby areas for hair restoration treatments.
