3 Treatments to Boost Hair Transplant Results

hair tranplant resultsHair transplant surgery is an effective hair restoration method that increases your confidence and sense of well-being. But, even successful hair restoration procedures can benefit from an extra push. To help each patient achieve optimal hair transplant results, we offer technologies and medications to reinforce and encourage hair growth long after you’ve left our offices.

Here are three treatments, all available at the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, to consider alongside your hair transplant:

Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

Low-level laser therapy, also called LLLT, has been widely adopted as a productive complement to hair restoration surgeries for improved hair transplant results. A non-invasive treatment involving the use of specialized combs and caps, LLLT nourishes hair follicles by sending pulses of energy into inactive follicles. These pulses “spark” the follicles back into a phase of regrowth by promoting proper circulation and cellular respiration.

After a hair transplant procedure, LLLT draws blood, oxygen, and nutrients to balding areas, promoting stronger effects. It is not uncommon for some hair follicles to be resistant to regrowth after an otherwise successful transplant. For these stubborn outliers, LLLT can provide the push follicles need to get with the hair growth program. Since hair loss is a progressive, long-term condition, undergoing long-term treatment after a hair restoration surgery can limit additional thinning as well.

LLLT treatments are delivered through specialized domes, combs, or caps. Laser domes are professional pieces of equipment that require a visit to the doctor to receive treatment. Laser combs have limitations since treatment is performed primarily at-home and the application is cumbersome. Laser caps, on the other hand, are portable, hands-free, and effective.

The Hair Transplant Institute of Miami offers the Capillus272 laser cap, a device cleared by the FDA for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia. Capillus272 caps have 272 professional-strength lasers to make it the most powerful at-home device for thinning hair.

Rogaine® (Minoxidil)

While most often used as a stand-alone treatment for hair loss, Rogaine® (Minoxidil) can also be constructive in driving optimal hair transplant results. Minoxidil is effective at stopping or slowing down hair loss and can lead to the growth of new hair in some patients. Post-transplant, Rogaine can strengthen and help you retain follicles which were not transplanted and may accelerate the growth of transplanted hair. Some patients may start using Rogaine a week or two after their surgery and continue to do so for five to seven months to boost hair growth. You should consult with your physician before using Rogaine, which is now available over-the-counter.

Stem Cells

Hair follicles are constantly regenerating, largely because of stem cells. But stem cells shrink, deteriorate, and stop renewing as we get older, leading to hair loss. Research has shown that re-introducing a patient’s own stem cells to their hair follicles creates a nourishing environment to foster regrowth and minimize hair loss.

The minimally invasive stem cell procedure has shown its ability to encourage successful hair transplant results. Performed at our state-of-the-art facility, the procedure involves a mild oral sedative and local anesthesia, making the process quick with little if any discomfort. Using a liposuction tool, we derive fat cells from the belly, flanks or love handles and extract the stem cells that will later foster hair growth. We then inject this concentrated stem cell sample onto the scalp.

If you are considering your options for addressing hair loss, or are looking for ways to promote and maintain a healthy, vibrant head of hair after undergoing a hair transplant procedure, we welcome the opportunity to assist you.

The Benefits of ARTAS® Hair Transplants

Long gone are the days of hair “plugs” – at least among prominent surgeons who employ the most advanced technologies and systems. Today, surgeons use cutting-edge techniques like the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) or Follicular Isolation (FIT) to harvest healthy follicles and remove the tell-tale signs of transplants. Facilitated by ARTAS® technology, a 3d physician-guided robotic system that sustains donor graft quality and eliminates linear scars, hair transplants are a natural-looking solution for hereditary hair loss conditions like androgenic alopecia.

During ARTAS hair transplants, the donor area from which follicular units are harvested is trimmed down to allow for proper digital imaging. After administering a local anesthetic, the doctor activates a robotic arm that pinpoints which follicular units to target, regularly re-positioning itself to extract only the most powerful grafts. Rather than harvest large patches that look unnatural when implanted, the machine collects donor hair in a random pattern to preserve the patient’s original appearance at the donor site. After adequate hair is gathered, the grafts are transplanted in a planned and personalized pattern. The entire process takes around four to eight hours and most patients can return to their normal activities after a few days. The transplanted grafts then grow as permanent hairs with substantial growth appearing around six to nine months following the procedure.

Consider the following reasons ARTAS hair transplants deliver optimal hair restoration results:

  • Because ARTAS hair transplants are minimally-invasive, both the donor and recipient areas heal quickly. The transplant “takes” in about three days. Small scabs are normal and can be gently rubbed off after a few days. In about a week, your scalp’s appearance returns to normal.
  • Transplanted hair grows gradually and naturally to prevent a sudden or obvious change in appearance. Optimal growth usually materializes around nine months after surgery.
  • ARTAS hair transplants are outpatient procedures that require only a local anesthetic. Numbing eliminates any pain during the procedure, and mild swelling or discomfort afterwards typically subsides in one to three days.
  • ARTAS harvesting eliminates linear scars, which means patients can wear their hair in practically any style or length.
  • After extraction, digital imaging is used to analyze distinct growth patterns and construct the most natural-looking design for implantation. Developed by Dr. Paul Rose and Dr. Bernard Nusbaum, the Mosaic® Hair Restoration technique delivers remarkably tailored results.
  • Previous hair transplants with obvious linear scars can be disguised using the ARTAS system.
  • ARTAS hair transplants offer unparalleled precision, uniformity, accuracy and personalization during FUE procedures. There’s no room for human fatigue or error; every graft is as qualified as the first.
  • Results are designed to last a lifetime.
