Hair Restoration Treatments
Hair restoration can combat hair loss by encouraging the growth of thick, natural-looking hair. Hair loss can affect both male and female patients. Over time, areas of the scalp may begin to thin due to pattern baldness. Thinning hair can take away from the hairline and affect one’s self-image. Hair restoration can achieve a fuller head of hair using your natural hair follicles. Our hair dermatologists at Dermatology, Laser and Surgery of Flatiron provide a variety of different hair replacement techniques to improve thinning hair, including NeoGraft® hair restoration, platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP) for hair loss, the LaserCap LCPRO device, and the HRS-10 Hair Regrowth System. Each of these options can bring about long-lasting improvements to your hairline.

What Causes Hair Loss?
There are many causes of hair loss that have been discovered. Hormonal imbalances, stress, illness, trauma, and more can contribute to the loss of hair. The most common cause of hair loss is pattern baldness. This condition affects both men and women. Over time, pattern baldness can result in a complete loss of hair around certain areas of the scalp, including the crown of the head and the frontal hairline.
Hair Replacement At A Glance:
Hair restoration is designed to encourage the growth of your natural hair follicles to thicken hair volume and improve thinning hair. Our hair loss surgeons and hair dermatologists provide a variety of different hair replacement techniques, depending on your individual needs.
NeoGraft® Hair Restoration
NeoGraft® hair replacement can transplant healthy hair follicles from areas of the scalp with ample amounts of hair, such as the back of your head, to areas that have thinned. During NeoGraft® hair restoration, hair follicles are carefully extracted from the donor location using pneumatic pressure. This technique ensures a high survival rate among the extracted hair follicles. Your hair is then implanted into the desired area. NeoGraft® is a minimally invasive hair restoration option that can reshape a receding hairline and offers natural-looking results.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) For Hair Loss
PRP for hair loss uses your body’s own platelet rich plasma to encourage the regrowth of your natural hair. PRP is just one of the components found within your blood. During PRP hair loss treatment, our dermatologists will take a blood sample that is then spun through a centrifuge. This allows the platelet rich plasma to isolate from the other components of your blood. This PRP is then injected into your scalp to encourage the growth of your hair follicles. Because PRP contains essential proteins, it can regrow hair in areas of thinning or be used alongside other hair restoration methods for its healing properties.
LaserCap LCPRO is a non-surgical hair loss solution that uses lower level laser therapy (LLLT) to improve the ability of your hair follicles to properly function. The LaserCap device can fit comfortably on your head and can be covered underneath a hat or cap to remain unnoticeable. This device helps extend the growth cycles of your hair follicles while enhancing cellular respiration, which can stimulate hair growth. Patients simply wear the LaserCap LCPRO device for 36 minutes every other day while going about their daily activities. LaserCap for hair loss is discreet and offers patients a non-surgical solution to treat areas of thinning hair.
HRS-10 Hair Regrowth System
The HRS-10 Hair Regrowth System is a 3 step solution to restore volume and enhance the appearance of your hair. HRS-10 hair restoration incorporates a volumizing shampoo, replenishing conditioner, and specialized hair growth serum. The shampoo can improve fullness and shine, the conditioner can reinforce the roots of your hair, and the serum encourages proper hair growth by slowing DHT, a hormone that can interfere with the growth of hair follicles.
