Male and female hair loss occurs in many of the human population. Though there are many over-the-counter and prescription treatments out there, there is little consensus over what actually works. While most of these questionable treatments rely on chemicals to promote hair growth, natural hair loss solutions are on the rise. Illuminate Plastic Surgery is happy to provide natural hair restoration solutions to those struggling with hair loss.
The appearance of thinning hair can be triggered by a number of different factors. For most, the onset of hair loss is likely due to a hormonal imbalance such as an abnormal amount of androgens in men. Other issues that contribute to hair loss are genetics, stress, autoimmune diseases, and diets. While some contributors can be controlled, factors like genetic predisposition to balding cannot be altered. Taking certain medications or undergoing a treatment procedure can help most people manage their thinning hair symptoms.
In the treatment of hair loss, growth factors have been proven to show promising regeneration properties. This minimally invasive option works by using your own blood and/or growth factors to stimulate hair follicle growth in thinning areas. When applied to the scalp, the concentrated growth factors extracted from your blood stimulate hair follicles, promoting continual hair regeneration, even well after the treatment is done. This treatment is safe to use for most patients. However, patients with active scalp infections or histories of shingles on the scalp, diabetes, and coagulation disease may not be good candidates. Similarly, those on blood thinning and/or immunosuppressive medications may not be candidates.
Alma TED therapy is a non-invasive and successful hair restoration technique that is proven to work! The technology employs acoustic sound waves and air pressure to transmit hair signal molecules past the protective layer of skin and into the dermis. By nourishing the scalp, the TED system fortifies hair follicles, promoting optimal regrowth without the need for surgery or needles. In the past, hair restoration treatments have been associated with discomfort and messiness. Alma TED, on the other hand, is painless, has a brief recovery time, and avoids the need for needles, scalpels, or leave-in creams. According to reports from patients, Alma TED has resulted in fuller, shinier hair with no bald spots.
Typically, three or four Hair Growth Factor Therapy treatments at 4 to 6 week intervals are recommended for best results. Additional maintenance treatments can be done after 6 months or a year if needed.
The recovery process may involve some soreness and swelling of the scalp. However, these symptoms usually only last 6 hours and should be completely resolved in 2 days. During this time, avoiding vigorous physical activity and sweating is advised to prevent additional irritation. Results vary from patient to patient, but most usually see changes in as early as 1 to 2 months. Optimal results can be seen roughly 3 to 6 months after the procedure.
After undergoing the Alma TED procedure, there is no downtime required, except that we recommend refraining from washing the scalp for one to two days to let the serums continue to work. While some patients may experience a reduction in hair shedding after their first session, we advise undergoing at least three complete initial treatments to attain the best outcome. Following the initial sessions, we will schedule a consultation to evaluate the results.
