Hair Building Fibers
These color-matched hair building fibers help give your hair the appearance of fullness by making the hairs look thicker. There are many brands on the market. When used in combination with other hair products, they will give your hair a boost of thickness while still looking very natural. This product is safe for use every day. Most patients use it during the growth phase of their hair transplant procedure while they wait for the new hairs to grow to their full potential.
Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) Therapy
Many hair restoration practices are offering this treatment modality to patients. It involves drawing blood from the patient and putting it into a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets in the plasma. This platelet concentrate is then injected into the areas where the hair is thinning. Platelets are responsible for the coagulation of blood after an injury, and they release a number of growth factors when needed. The thought process is that these growth factors, once released into the scalp near the thinning hairs, will promote hair growth.
This treatment modality for hair loss is still being studied. Although many practices offer it, there is not enough solid research data and evidence that supports its use. At Tempus Hair Restoration, we do not offer it at this time. We advise patients to exercise caution when signing up for this treatment because there is no guarantee of results and no data that allows for an accurate prediction of success.
We offer a variety of hair regrowth treatment options to restore your lost hair.
