NONSURGICAL HAIR RESTORATION
If a surgical hair transplant procedure is not right for you, MAXiM-affiliated doctors offer a number of nonsurgical hair restoration solutions, including PRP therapy, stem cell therapy (or a combination of the two), microneedling (with PRP or stem cell therapy), and scalp micropigmentation.
These procedures are an excellent choice for men or women in the early stages of hair loss or for those in poor health who are not candidates for surgery.
PRP Hair Restoration
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy involves taking a patient’s own blood and spinning it down in a centrifuge machine to separate out the growth-factor rich platelets. Your MAXiM surgeon will first numb your scalp with local anesthesia, and then inject the plasma, which contains a high concentration of platelets, into target areas in the scalp to promote hair growth. This is especially useful for patients in the early stages of hair loss.
PRP therapy may be used alone, or in combination with many other surgical and nonsurgical procedures such as hair transplants, stem cell therapy, and microneedling.
This nonsurgical, minimally invasive procedure only takes about an hour to perform. If done independently, patients will need from 3 to 5 treatments for maximum results. However, only one treatment is needed if combined with a hair transplant, microneedling, or stem cells.
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy involves using a patient’s own fat to harvest stem cells and inject into the scalp to reverse the shrinking of hair follicles and stimulate hair growth.
Your MAXiM surgeon will perform a mini-liposuction to obtain 1 to 2 ounces of fat tissue from the abdominal area. This procedure takes 30 minutes to an hour. The fat tissue is then processed at an FDA-registered lab, where the stem cells are extracted. Once we receive the stem cells back, the doctor will numb your scalp with local anesthesia and inject the stem cells into the targeted areas. These injections take about 30 minutes to complete.
This advanced hair restoration treatment can be combined with PRP therapy, microneedling, or a hair transplant for maximum results.
Microneedling involves the use of a skin roller to cause minor skin injuries on the scalp. The roller device contains hundreds of tiny needles that extend to the middle layer of the skin. The micro injuries to the skin encourage the growth of new collagen and elastin and may also help to regenerate hair follicles and stimulate new hair growth, especially when used in conjunction with PRP or stem cell therapy. In addition, the micro injuries improve the absorption of minoxidil (Rogaine®) and topical steroids and improve the health of existing hair.
Microneedling can help with alopecia (hereditary hair loss), lichen planis (patchy hair loss), and related disorders. You MAXiM practitioner will apply a topical anesthetic prior to the procedure and a soothing balm or serum after the treatment. Each session takes approximately 30 minutes to an hour.
Scalp micropigmentation is an affordable nonsurgical treatment for thinning hair, receding hairline, and male pattern baldness. It is also ideal for scar revision from a hair transplant or accident. During scalp micropigmentation, your MAXiM surgeon uses tiny needles to deposit pigment into an area of the scalp to provide the appearance of hair where there was none. It is similar to receiving a tattoo.
We use advanced medical-grade pigment that lasts several years and beyond and does not fade easily. Each treatment is tailored to match your skin color and type. You get immediate, long-lasting results and a natural appearance.
Each session takes 2-3 hours to complete and typically requires 2-4 sessions for optimal results.
