10 Feb Follicular Biologics: In Surgical Hair Transplantation and Non-Surgical Hair Restoration Therapy
The ability to safely heal damaged tissue and regenerate new tissue with one’s own cells is the future of Regenerative Medicine. It is now possible to restore damaged cells in humans and animals by simply taking their own blood, processing it to increase the bodies healing capable cells and when those undifferentiated healing cells are applied to an injured area, new cells proliferate and regenerate damaged tendons, ligaments, muscle, bone, skin and hair cells.
While in its infancy, follicular biologic therapy has many advantages in surgical hair transplantation as well as non-surgical hair restoration. It may be utilized in surgery to enhance donor scar healing, decrease donor scaring, increase tensile strength for donor wounds, used as a graft storage medium to enhance graft survival. Because it is bactericidal, it can be utilized to decrease the incidence of infection.
It may also be utilized as an adjunctive treatment, especially in younger patients, to reverse follicular miniaturization in conjunction with other approved FDA therapies or utilized when other therapies have failed or patients have side effects to traditional therapies.
The best way to evaluate a patient is to arrange a personal, in-depth consultation. However, this is impossible for many patients who fly in from other parts of the country or world. For this reason we have developed the remote consultation package, which is an acceptable alternative to the in-person personal consult.
Once your photos and questionnaire are reviewed, we will telephone you to discuss your questions or concerns regarding the procedure. You will also be given a suggested treatment plan and the costs involved. Click here for more complete information on our free on-line hair restoration consultation process.
