What Is Hair Restoration Injection For Hair Loss?
For many people, hair is thought of as their “crown”. Given the association of hair with beauty and attractiveness, the loss of hair can be quite devastating. Finally, there is an effective, non-invasive procedure to help restore hair fullness. Hair Restoration Injection is a procedure in which growth factors from one’s own blood are used to stimulate hair regrowth and increased thickness. This process reverses miniaturization of the hair follicle and drives hair back into the growth phase. The result is less shedding and the growth of larger and healthier hair shafts.
Candidates For Hair Restoration Injections
The most common type of hair loss treated by Hair Restoration Injection is androgenetic alopecia, also known as male or female pattern baldness. In men, this may present as the recession of the hairline, and in women as a widened part at the top of the scalp. The cause of hair loss is thought to be a combination of hormonal and genetic factors. It is important to have a consultation with a physician for proper diagnosis and treatment because there are many different types of hair loss, some even caused by medical conditions.
The Hair Restoration Procedure
Hair Restoration Injection treatment involves a quick injection to draw the blood. Next, the blood is processed to collect a maximum number of platelets. Lastly, a small needle is used to inject the platelets into the scalp in areas that require improvement.

"Dr. A. Brown was knowledgeable, attentive, and empathetic to my concerns. She was very thorough in her explanation of what she assessed my issues to be and what treatment plan she thought would be the best fit.
