Both men and women can experience hair loss at any time. While it is commonly associated with growing older, it is also common for younger people to seek out hair restoration treatments for a receding hairline or thinning hair.
Hair restoration treatments such as RF microneedling and platelet-rich plasma therapy can help your body to naturally produce more hair through the stimulation of natural healing responses. Based in Concord, Ontario, Aesthetics Now is a leading provider of these treatments, offering personalized services that are overseen by Dr. Monique Mazzuca to ensure optimal results.
What Causes Thinning Hair?
Hair loss often results from a combination of factors, including genetics, hormonal imbalances, stress, poor diet, and certain health conditions. The most common form of hair loss, androgenetic alopecia, is a genetic condition that affects both men and women, leading to progressively thinning hair. In some cases, external factors such as excessive heat styling or harsh chemical treatments can also contribute to hair thinning. The first step of any treatment is to understand these causes so that we can find the right hair-thinning solutions that effectively address the root cause and promote healthier hair growth.
Our Hair Restoration Treatments
PRP for Hair Restoration
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is an innovative hair restoration treatment that uses your body’s own healing potential to stimulate hair growth. PRP, a concentrated form of your blood plasma rich in growth factors, is carefully injected into the scalp at the site of hair thinning. These growth factors work to rejuvenate inactive hair follicles, encouraging new hair growth.
This can be a good hair-thinning treatment for men and women experiencing hair loss. The use of the patient’s own blood in PRP therapy makes it an autologous and natural solution. The result is healthier, thicker hair without surgery, making PRP a sought-after hair-thinning solution.
What Are the Benefits of This Option?
- Natural and Non-Invasive: PRP for hair restoration uses the patient’s own blood, almost eliminating the risk of allergic reactions.
- Targets Root Causes: This thinning-hair treatment targets inactive hair follicles, offering a more permanent solution by stimulating the growth of new hair and strengthening existing hair.
- Minimal Downtime: Patients can return to their regular activities almost immediately after treatment.
- Versatility: PRP treatment is a suitable thinning treatment for both women and men who are experiencing many different types of hair loss.
FAQs About PRP for Hair Restoration
A typical PRP treatment session lasts approximately 60 to 90 minutes, including the time required to prepare the PRP and the application process.
There may be some mild discomfort during the injections, but a topical numbing cream is applied to minimize this. Most patients tolerate the treatment well.
Typically, a series of three to four treatments spaced one month apart is recommended for optimal results. The number of treatments can vary depending on the individual’s hair loss condition.
Results can typically be seen after three to six months or more. The timeline can vary depending on the individual’s rate of hair growth.
RF Microneedling Treatments
RF Microneedling is a groundbreaking hair restoration treatment that combines the power of radiofrequency energy with microneedling technology. This treatment works on thinning hair by creating controlled micro-injuries on the scalp, stimulating the body’s natural healing process. As part of this response, the body boosts collagen and elastin production, essential proteins that contribute to hair health and growth.
The RF energy delivered through the microneedles penetrates the deeper layers of the scalp, promoting circulation and nutrient delivery to the hair follicles. This process rejuvenates the follicles, encouraging the growth of stronger, healthier hair.
What Are the Benefits of This Option?
- Enhances Overall Hair Health: By promoting collagen and elastin production, RF microneedling helps improve the overall health and thickness of your hair as well as the health of your scalp.
- Stimulates New Hair Growth: The RF energy revitalizes dormant hair follicles, encouraging the growth of new hair and serving as a great hair-thinning solution.
- Non-Surgical: This hair restoration treatment is non-surgical, making it a less invasive alternative to hair transplant surgeries.
- Minimal Downtime: Similar to PRP, RF microneedling allows patients to resume their daily activities almost immediately after treatment.
FAQs About Microneedling Treatments
During an RF Microneedling treatment, the area is prepped, and then the device treats one small section of the scalp at a time until the whole area is treated. You may feel a comfortable warmth along with a scratching or prickling sensation, which is typically well tolerated.
Typically, a series of three to five hair restoration treatments are recommended for optimal results. However, the exact number can vary based on the individual’s specific hair condition.
