Robotic Hair Restoration with the ARTAS system will allow you to gain much
more hair, however, there are other procedures/products which will help
you maintain the the hair you have (slow down future hair loss), as well
as speed up recovery and results after robotic hair restoration.
Low Level Laser (LLL). While there are many forms of LLL currently available, most are over
the counter and have very few (4-10) laser diodes. We recommend the
Capillus 272 Pro system since this prescription strength device has more diodes than any other
competing device on the market, and has the clinical and FDA evidence
to back its claims. The Capillus 272 Pro is great for men and women to
thicken up thinning hair as well as to use right after hair restoration
to speed up recovery and results.
2. Propecia (aka finasteride or proscar) is an oral DHT-blocker. While
it works well to reverse miniaturization, it is not without side effects.
Approximately 1 in 100 will have sexual side effects including ED. In
addition it can reduce sperm count, promote gynecomastia (formation of
breast tissue), as well as make it difficult to screen for prostate cancer
using the PSA blood test. This said it is a very effective treatment,
but its adverse effects must be taken seriously. We do prescribe this
medicine regularly, but knowing about its pros and cons and alternatives
are key in making the right decision for yourself.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy: PRP is isolated from your own blood and processed to isolate platelets
and their growth factors. It has found many uses including injection into
joints for arthritis, but more recently its use in hair restoration has
been well documented. While it cannot replace a procedure, it does help
reverse the miniaturization process of thinning hair as well as speed
up growth of new hair.
ACell is a regenerative medicine therapy used to promote wound healing and speed up recovery. It has recently found
use in hair restoration in combination with PRP, to speed up healing of
donor area after transplant, as well as promote quicker recovery of transplanted
are after hair restoration
