Is Hairline Restoration a Thing?
Hair restoration has come a long way since the days of unsightly hair plugs. New procedures result in hair that looks natural and is indistinguishable from surrounding hair, making hair restoration more accessible than ever before. If you are concerned with your thinning or balding hair and would like to pursue all options available, visit Arocha Hair Restoration and Transplant Center to schedule an appointment with Dr. Arocha.
Hair Restoration History
Evidence of hair restoration dates back to the 1800s. Hair loss is a far-reaching affliction that has affected both men and women for all of history, and hair restoration is finally achievable through modern techniques. Prior generations of people who suffered from hair loss received outdated hair transplant procedures that resulted in the unsightly and unnatural “pluggy” look that is often associated with hair restoration. Hair loss treatment has advanced greatly since those days and resulted in procedures and treatments that can effectively restore your hairline.
Hair Transplantation Surgery
Two modern methods of hair restoration surgery exist: follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE). The difference in these two procedures is the way Dr. Arocha and his team harvest the healthy follicles, while the method of transplantation is the same. Using either of these procedures, expert hair loss doctors like Dr. Arocha are able to rebuild hairlines while keeping results natural and seamless.
Hair Loss Treatments
On top of modern hair restoration surgery, medical products and treatments have also developed that can thicken hair and even prompt regrowth in aging follicles. Rogaine, containing minoxidil, and Propecia, containing finasteride, are the only two medicated products on the market that are FDA-approved for improving hair thickness and growth. When used together, these products can thicken fading hairlines and create a fuller appearance.
Medical treatments like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy and low-level laser treatment (LLLT) have shown promising results in regrowing hair. PRP is separated from the patient’s own blood at the start of the procedure to create a serum that is rich in growth factors. The PRP is then injected directly into the scalp to provide the aging follicles with a fresh source of nutrients that encourage hair growth. LLLT works by targeting the scalp with red-light lasers that increase blood flow to the area and promote healthier follicles.
