If you are among the 80 million men and women in America experiencing abnormal hair loss, then you don’t need to worry. Statistics reveal that up to 95 percent of the hair loss cases are passed down from both parents. However, most of the genes resulting in hair loss come from the mother. The remaining five percent of hair loss cases result from other factors such as diet inadequacies, medications, illnesses, and stress. At the New England Center for Hair Restoration we offer hair restoration treatments to help you regain not only your hair, but your confidence and self-image as well.
Hair Restoration Treatments
Not every individual experiencing abnormal hair loss qualifies for hair restoration treatment. Hair loss resulting from pregnancy, medical condition, or even stress will grow back once you have recovered. There are several hair restoration options you can try if the situation is causing you distress.
Laser Hair Therapy
This non-surgical treatment addresses hair loss and thinning hair. If you’ve ever noticed that your hair grows faster during the summer, you already understand the basic principle behind laser hair therapy. The red light in sunlight stimulates hair growth, which scientists have been able to utilize in an artificial setting. This treatment is ideal for patients in the early stages of hair loss.
PRP for Hair Restoration
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is one of those amazing treatments science has recently discovered. Did you know that your own blood is all you need to heal, rejuvenate, and restore certain areas of your body? When PRP is used for hair restoration, your blood is first extracted, spun through in a centrifuge, and then injected back into the scalp. This blood is now full of platelets that stimulate collagen production and cause your hair to grow back.
Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT)
This procedure can be used in conjunction with laser hair therapy for optimal results. Follicular unit transplant (FUT), is the process of taking a strip of hair from the back of the head and transplanting it where the hair is gone or thin. The follicles taken from the back of the head reattach themselves to wherever they are placed, which allows you to regain a full head of hair.
These are just a few of the treatments we offer. Contact the New England Center for Hair Restoration today to schedule your consultation and find out which treatment may be right for you! We are conveniently located in North Attleborough and Westwood, MA.
