Hair loss can be one of the most difficult signs of aging because it can seem like there are few options when it comes to restoring hair growth. It can unfortunately affect men and women of all ages for many, many different reasons, leading to poor confidence and self-image. Although implant techniques can be effective, it may not be an option for everyone. Dr. Sarraga offers a few non-surgical techniques to suit your needs and goals for effective hair restoration.
PRP HAIR RESTORATION
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is one of the fastest-growing techniques in the cosmetic industry due to its effectiveness at rejuvenating the body’s restorative systems. PRP is created from the patient’s blood sample, which is spun in a special centrifuge to separate the two important aspects of blood— the blood cells and the plasma. This plasma contains rich and distilled growth factors that are invaluable in maintaining the body’s rejuvenating functions. This PRP can be injected into the scalp to jumpstart the follicles into a regular growth pattern again, leading to increased hair growth in patients experiencing the beginning signs of hair loss.
This well-rounded and holistic technique is preferable because it doesn’t require any substances other than the patient’s own blood, greatly reducing the chance of reaction or complication. Dr. Sarraga uses the top of the line PRP system by the Arthrex company called the ANGEL; it provides nearly 17 times (17 X) the platelet concentration found in most commercial PRP kits.

LASER LIGHT THERAPY
This treatment is a great option for patients experiencing shedding or decreased hair density by using laser light to increase blood flow to the scalp and stimulate the cells of the individual follicles. This can strengthen the hair and even reverse hair loss through easy, painless treatment. Laser light therapy comes in the form of a specialized device that can fit comfortably over the head and ensure maximum contact with the follicles. Treatment consists of 30-minute sessions at three times per week, which can decrease as hair loss begins to slow. Laser light therapy can be used in conjunction with other hair restoration treatments or medications, and can even increase their effectiveness.
It can seem like there are many medications that promise hair restoration, but Nutrafol is one with a functional approach and plenty of nutraceutical benefits. It offers a fully-rounded approach to hair restoration, following four key ideas:
- There are multiple triggers that cause hair follicles to become insufficient
- These triggers must be stopped with a holistic, nutraceutical approach
- These nutraceutical benefits must boost the body’s own healing and protective systems
- Long-term growth should be protected with proper vitamin, mineral, and nutritive intake
