Hair loss got you down? Dr. Arocha and his expert team have treatment options and procedures that will help you restore your hair and your self-confidence. Put hair loss on hold with advanced hair restoration treatments and procedures from Arocha Hair Restoration & Transplant Center.

Hair Restoration Surgery

If you have tried medicated products and treatment options and have not seen success, or your hair loss is more extensive, hair transplantation surgery can restore your lost hair by harvesting healthy follicles from healthy portions of the scalp. Common donor sites are found on the back and sides of the scalp, and Dr. Arocha can transplant these active follicles using either the follicular unit extraction (FUE) or follicular unit transplantation (FUT) method of hair restoration surgery for natural-looking hair that blends in unnoticeably with the rest of the scalp.

Depending on the nature of your hair loss, Dr. Arocha will decide if you are a better candidate for FUE or FUT during your initial hair loss consultation. Dr. Arocha stays at the forefront of hair restoration technology by utilizing the ARTAS® Robotic System during his FUE procedures to ensure a level of precision that is unmatched.

Medicated Products and Treatment Options

Hair restoration surgery can be advantageous for those wishing to fill in areas of the scalp that have noticeably thinned out, but it may not be necessary for all people experiencing hair loss. If you are interested in medicated treatments and products but not quite ready for surgery, or would like to supplement surgery with additional treatments for the most well-rounded approach, Dr. Arocha provides a wide variety of treatment options for all of his patients.

Rogaine and Propecia, containing the medications minoxidil and finasteride respectively, are the only two products currently on the market that are FDA-approved for effectively treating hair loss. When used regularly, Rogaine is capable of slowing down hair loss, while Propecia has been shown to increase hair regrowth. Using these two medicated products can have a noticeable impact on thinning hair, while also speeding up the growth from freshly-transplanted follicles after surgery.

Medical treatment options also exist, including platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy and low-Level laser therapy (LLLT) for boosting hair growth. PRP therapy uses nutrient-rich plasma developed from your own blood to provide a fresh and direct source of growth factors straight to the scalp. PPR can rejuvenate hair follicles that have begun to age and jumpstart their growth cycle, leading to a noticeable increase in hair growth. LLLT uses visible red-light lasers to promote increased blood flow to the scalp and can be administered at the office or in the comfort of your home using laser combs or caps.
