We have more than 30 years of collective experience and use a combination of Western medicine and successful holistic practices for the best possible outcome.

Hair loss

Most people lose approximately 50-100 hairs on their scalp each day, which is nothing to worry about. Anyone who finds unexpectedly large amounts of hair on their clothes, in brushes, or in the sink, tub, or shower drain may be experiencing excessive hair loss. 

Other signs may include a wider part in the hair, a change in the hairline, one or more bald patches, and/or hair that is thinner in general. There are a number of possible causes from certain medical issues to side effects of some medications.

Treatment options

The good news is there are multiple treatment options, including platelet-rich plasma and NeoGraft® hair restoration.

Platelet-rich plasma

Also known as PRP, platelet-rich plasma is a cutting-edge therapy used in a variety of medical and aesthetic treatments. In the case of hair loss, PRP injections can encourage natural hair growth and maintain it by improving the supply of blood to the hair follicle as well as making the shaft of the hair thicker.

The procedure uses the patient's own blood, which is drawn and then put in a centrifuge to separate and obtain the platelet-rich plasma. Then the solution is administered into the scalp to encourage hair growth that is both natural and healthy.

NeoGraft hair restoration

Approved by the FDA, NeoGraft is a treatment that can help treat hair loss with less invasiveness than other types of hair restoration procedures — and with no staples, stitches, or scarring.

This treatment uses the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method, which is an advanced technique that works by harvesting groups of one to four hairs and then carefully implanting them on scalp areas that have experienced hair loss.

Benefits include natural-looking results along with a procedure that involves no incisions and minimal loss of blood. Recovery is typically fast with fewer restrictions than more invasive hair restoration surgeries.
