Amniotic Fluid for Hair Restoration
Depending on the amount of hair loss, the pattern, and the desire to restore hair, there are a number of effective non-surgical treatment options available utilizing new advancements.
AMNIOTIC FLUID-DERVIVED GROWTH FACTOR INJECTIONS
The first involves the use of amniotic fluid- derived growth factors. There are several companies on the market that now manufacture growth products from amniotic fluid. The product we have selected is manufactured by a company that has proven to us that they have obtained their amniotic fluid ethically, from women who have chosen to donate their umbilical cords. These donated umbilical cords are initially screened for the presence of any diseases, and the extraction process is such that only the growth factors are harvested. The finished product is tested to confirm safety.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING TREATMENT?
A numbing agent is applied to the treatment area and you relax for about 15-30 min for the numbing effect to take place.
While you are numbing we prepare the recommended product that will be used for the injections by adding either normal saline or platelet rich plasma (PRP) Learn more about PRP here.
The product is strategically injected into the affected area(s) using very small needles while cool air is directed onto the scalp for your comfort.
After the procedure, which takes 15-30 minutes depending on the treatment area(s), the scalp is cleaned and dried.
DEPENDING on the underlying reason for the hair loss, this treatment may require more than one session.
For optimal results, the injection treatment is followed with the Hair Growing Laser for 30 minutes. The patient sits under the low-level light while relaxing. Learn more about the Hair Growing Laser here.
