Hair restoration is a treatment for individuals losing their natural hair. Whether you’re going bald or simply thinning, hair restoration can restore the natural hair growth from your scalp.
The substance that your provider injects into the scalp during hair restoration comes from blood. It contains plasma as its liquid base, just like a normal blood sample, and a high concentration of platelets that clot the blood and release growth factors.
It stimulates inactive hair follicles, which may cause them to continue growing hair. The injections also improve blood flow to the scalp, which further nourishes dead and dying follicles.
For your treatment, it comes from your own blood. Using your blood makes the procedure highly safe, as there is no risk of transmitting any bloodborne illness to yourself. Your provider draws a blood sample from a vessel, usually in the arm.
Your Aesthetic Lab provider places the blood sample in a centrifuge, which is a device that spins rapidly and uses centrifugal force to separate cells in the blood by density. The platelets congregate in one section, which your provider extracts from the sample to use.
Once it is fresh from the centrifuge, it’s nearly time to begin your hair restoration treatment. Your provider at Aesthetic Lab explains what to expect in detail and discloses any possible risks and side effects before starting the procedure.
During the procedure, your provider:
Once your injections are complete, you receive aftercare instructions for managing side effects or possible complications. These include avoiding harsh hair treatments for at least 72 hours, like a perm.
For the best possible injections results, you should closely follow your treatment plan. It may include several initial rounds of injections and follow-up injections later on.
