Hair Restoration

Home » Dermatology » Hair Restoration

Hair restoration refers to procedures that help you achieve dense and luscious hair. The loss of hair can be devastating, especially since many of us view hair as a central sign of health and beauty. Most people suffer from hair loss, such as thinning hair, receding hairline, bald patches, or male/female pattern baldness. We use growth factor-rich PRP solutions or exosomes to activate your dormant hair follicles and provide dense and luscious hair.

What are the side effects of hair restoration?

Hair restoration with PRP or exosomes leads to minimal side effects, such as redness, swelling, tenderness, and mild bruising around the injection points. The side effects are similar to all other injectable treatments, and they dissipate within a few days.

What does hair restoration treat?

  • Male pattern baldness
  • Female pattern baldness
  • Receding hairline
  • Bald patches on the scalp
  • Thinning hair
  • Poor quality of hair

Is there any downtime after hair restoration?

Hair restoration doesn’t lead to any downtime. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately after the treatment, but you should avoid strenuous workouts for a day.

How many hair restoration sessions do I need?

The number of hair restoration sessions you need depends on your specific goals and concerns. Each session leads to improved results, so the benefits will build upon each other. Most patients opt for 3 to 6 sessions spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart for optimal results. Our medical providers will recommend the ideal hair restoration frequency for you.

How do you perform hair restoration?

Hair loss affects everyone differently. But most people suffer from various degrees of hair loss because of insufficient blood circulation to the scalp, which leads to insufficient nutrients and growth factors. Without proper nutrients, your hair follicles may become dormant, leading to thinning and receding hair. We use autologous, regenerative solutions, such as PRP and Exosomes to improve blood circulation and activate your dormant hair follicles.


Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a component of the human blood with a high concentration of the growth factors responsible for most of your body’s healing and growth processes. We draw a small sample of your blood, isolate the PRPs, and inject the serum into targeted areas on your scalp. The growth factors in the PRP serum improve blood circulation to the scalp and activate the dormant hair follicles, helping you achieve dense and luscious hair.


Exosome-rich solution is a special compound drawn from umbilical cord and bone marrow tissues with a high concentration of growth factors. The exosome-rich solution undergoes minimal chemical manipulation, so it contains thousands of active growth factors, 28 types of collagen, lipids, hyaluronic acid, glycosaminoglycans, proteins, nucleic acids, and other biological materials that stimulate cellular regeneration and tissue healing. The exosome-rich solution encourages your body to heal itself, leading to thicker, denser, and more luscious hair.

Oral Treatments

In addition to procedures, there are oral treatments available to help you achieve your desired hair restoration goal. It is best to schedule a consultation with a medical provider at Premier Aesthetic Dermatology to review the best oral treatments for you.

When will I see the results of hair restoration?

The results of hair restoration with PRP and Exosomes will gradually appear over several months. You should start noticing improvements in the density and lusciousness of your hair after a few weeks, but the final results will appear a few weeks after your final session. So the final results will appear several months after your first session.

How long do the hair restoration results last?

Hair restoration with PRP and Exosomes activates the dormant hair follicles to stimulate hair regrowth, but the results aren’t permanent. After the first round of 3 to 6 sessions, you may need to undergo 1 or 2 sessions per year to maintain the results.
