This informational presentation is about hair regeneration.
Are you of someone you know is suffering from Hair loss or thinning hair? The search for curing hair loss has challenged physicians and research scientists for decades. In this presentation, you will learn about the pioneering application of a remarkable wound healing technology to help people suffering from hair loss. This presentation is for informational purposes and is not a substitute for proper medical examination.
Did you know that men can start losing their hair as early as their teen years? And that it’s been estimated that 30% of women suffer from hair loss under the age of 50 and that percentage rises up to 50% over the age of 50. For men, traditional medical therapy has included Minoxidil and finasteride. For women, the medical treatment has been limited to minoxidil. Although medical therapy has helped many people, there has been a need for more options to help people suffering from thinning hair.
Dr. Amiya Prasad, a highly respected cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon, has worked for several years developing a medical treatment for thinning hair using a material called extracellular matrix. As a multispecialty surgeon, Dr. Amiya Prasad has applied extracellular matrix technology in surgical procedures for eyes, ears, facelifts, reconstructive surgeries, body procedures and hair transplant surgery. Focused in helping men and women with thinning hair, Dr. Prasad developed his own combination of extracellular matrix, platelet-rich plasma, Vitamin D and other materials to help people with thinning hair.
How does it work? In the past few years, advancements in wound healing technology such extracellular matrix or ECM has helped surgeon like Dr. Prasad help patients with complex problems. When this material was used in hair transplant surgery, it was observed that thinning hair actually became thicker. Dr. Prasad combined his surgical knowledge using ECM from top universities such as the University of Pennsylvania, Yale University and the University of Tokyo to create his own formulation and delivery methods to help men and women with thinning hair.
Based on recent scientific studies, the cells and signals between the cells that produce the hair, stop working resulting in hair thinning and eventually hair loss. The clinical evidence indicates that this advanced wound healing technology combined with Dr. Prasad’s techniques restarts the cells and necessary signals to restore the hair growth cycle.
Dr. Prasad has helped people who have come from all over the world.
The work I’ve done has helped people think differently about hair thinning. For decade after decade, the hair transplanters seem committed to sell surgical procedures and not managing patients. These so-called hair specialists focus on patients to come back for more surgery knowing that the patients will continue to lose hair and need more procedures to keep up with their appearance. We now have an opportunity to change the conversation about hair thinning and apply hair regeneration as a way to restore your hair without surgery. This doesn’t mean that hair transplantation is obsolete but a significant percentage of people with thinning hair can benefit from hair regeneration.
So what is the treatment?
For you will meet our staff and have detailed medical examination including medical photography and microscopic examination. Your treatment options and suggested plan will be explained and discussed thoroughly. Once it has been determined that you are a suitable candidate, the clinical team will begin the process. You will have a simple blood draw like when you have a routine laboratory test. As your platelet-rich plasma is being prepared and mixed with the extracellular matrix and other materials customized for you, a topical anesthetic cream is applied to your scalp. The area to be treated is made numb and then you have your treatment. Most clients go back to their work and normal activities the next day.
After your treatment, you will receive instructions. The staff, including your doctor, is always available to you 24 hours a day. You will be scheduled for follow-up examinations but you will be welcomed to come back as often as you like if you have any concerns.
