Hair Restoration

Younger men and women who start losing their hair may not want to jump right to hair transplantation surgeries. There are surgical hair restoration options that can help patients to have cosmetic improvements. Hair restoration can help patients to re-create the look and feel of their natural hair that can be cut and styled in any way.

Why should I choose a surgical hair loss treatment?

Many patients who are looking for treatment do not yet have significant hair loss. This may also be a good solution for patients who do not have enough donor hair to do a hair transplant. There are also a great number of patients who wish to achieve natural looking hair gradually, instead of having a full head of hair overnight after a hair transplant surgery.

Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa uses the following surgical hair restoration techniques:

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplant

After administering local anesthesia, using state-of-the-art technology, our experts extract small groupings of hair from the donor area and painlessly transplant the follicles one-by-one into the thinning or bald area. The procedure is precise and leaves no linear scar.

Strip Method

When the best approach is to transplant many hair follicles at once, your hair restoration surgeon will use the strip method. Using this technique, the doctor extracts strips of scalp tissue and grafts them into the balding areas.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections

PRP can stimulate the growth of new collagen when injected into the skin, softening damage caused by the sun and the aging process. It may also help promote hair growth in medical conditions such as alopecia areata.

Capillus Laser Cap

A non-surgical hair loss treatment for both men and women is the Capillus Laser Cap. This low-level light therapy stops hair loss, and patients may be able to regrow up to 20% of their hair volume.

Stem Cells for Hair Regeneration

The doctors at  Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa use stem cells taken from the patient’s body fat, making the procedure simple and safe. Since the base of the hair follicle mainly consists of connective tissue, the stem cells could play a role in the repair and renewal of the hair follicle papilla.

Topical Hair Loss Retail Items

We carry several different topic hair loss retail products our patients can use to treat hair loss. The Glytone and Viviscal products we recommend specifically address hair loss and scalp concerns.
