Kerry Drew of Fox News shows us one treatment let’s a person use their own blood to regrow thinned hair. The treatment has been successful for many patients as an alternative to a hair transplant as it stops further hair loss and thickens existing hair for a more natural looking hair density than a hair transplant.
Paul noticed that every time he looks at the mirror, and especially looking at old photos that his hair was thinning and receding. He felt self-conscious about a section of thinning hair on the back of his head. Looking at his family, there are some people who don’t have any hair and realized it might happen to him slowly. Paul did some research and came across cosmetic surgeon Dr. Amiya Prasad who specializes in a procedure called Hair Regeneration.
Dr. Prasad says that he can’t bring back hairs that are gone, but he can take hairs that are thinning and make them thicker. The treatment is unique: through the use of the patient’s own blood and a material called extracellular matrix it generates growth and thickening of hair. Platelet-rich plasma is derived from the patient’s own blood. He customizes the formulation and injects it into the scalp. And what seems to occur is a wound-healing mechanism that results in reversal of hair thinning.
To begin, Dr. Prasad examines Paul’s head under a microscope, to figure out where the injections will go. Dr. Prasad chooses the area that will respond nicely to the treatment. Then Paul gets his blood drawn, and that same blood will be used for about 100 injections all over his scalp. Dr. Prasad said he has perfected this procedure over the past few years, and the results have been amazing.
Dr. Prasad says that if there is one solution for male pattern hair loss that’s almost close to 100 percent in his clinical experience over the past few years.
The Hair Regeneration treatment can restore hair volume better than a hair transplant since it thickens native hair. Native hair is much more densely packed than transplanted hair. To achieve natural looking density through a hair transplant, several sessions are needed.
Hair Regeneration can stop further hair loss, which a hair transplant can not. Hair Regeneration works as a stem cell therapy by activating adult stem cells to create the cells and signals necessary for hair growth.
Hair Regeneration has worked as an effective hair transplant alternative for people with thinning hair, and also for people who already had a hair transplant and want to avoid second or more successive hair transplants.
The one-time treatment is not as effective for men and women with significant hair loss or those who are totally bald. As for Paul, he should start to see results in about a month. In a year, it will be even better. Paul says that Dr. Prasad was very thorough and clear and made him feel very optimistic about this. So he’s looking forward to a few months from now.
