Regenerative Hair Restoration - TLC The Littleton Clinic

Regenerative Hair Restoration

Hair loss can be a difficult and embarrassing thing for many people and is a very common issue. In fact, 35 million men and 21 million women in the United States are currently experiencing some type of hair loss. Conventional approaches use prescription medications or creams that have varying efficacy and may have side effects. Surgery can be an option for some, but this option can be quite expensive.

TLC now offers Regenerative Hair Restoration treatment using the technology of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). Harnessing the healing properties of your own body, we can inject your platelets back into your scalp and help you regrow healthier, stronger hair.

Benefits of Treatment

With many options available to try and address hair loss and thinning, why Platelet Rich Plasma? The difference is in what the treatment looks to address. Other treatments will attempt to address the symptoms, without identifying the root cause and treating that. Using PRP will help to stimulate new, healthier hair instead of just “covering up.” Here are some of the benefits of this type of treatment:

  • Increased blood supply to hair follicles
  • Increased thickness of hair
  • Controls growth cycle of hair
  • Decreases hair loss
  • Very quick treatment
  • Fast and virtually painless
  • Little to no down time

Regenerative Hair Restoration at TLC is simple, quick, effective and safe. With thicker, fuller hair many patients report increased confidence – smiling more for pictures and going out without a hat! We have seen the wonderful results this treatment has to offer, and think it may be able to help you too.

It should be noted, this treatment is most effective for preventing hair loss and addressing hair thinning – it does not work well for complete baldness. There is evidence to suggest that regular treatment can slow down the effects of Androgenic Alopecia (baldness) and can increase hair density.

The Process

  • The process begins with our trained medical staff drawing your blood. Utilizing on-site, state-of-the-art equipment the healing elements and growth factors of your blood are isolated (the PRP). All PRP treatments performed at TLC use FDA-approved kits.
  • While this process is being performed, a numbing cream and local anesthetic injections can be used to minimize pain as much as possible.
  • Using a series of injections with a small needle, the PRP is injected strategically into the scalp into the areas requiring treatment.

The process lasts approximately an hour, with the procedure itself lasting only 10-15 minutes. All procedures are performed by Dr. Maria Hopp, who is trained and certified to administer Regenerative Hair Restoration treatments.
