We will take before and after pictures to follow your progress.
Scalp is cleaned and then anesthetized (numbed) with BLT (20% benzocaine/8%lidocaine/8% tetracaine). This sits on the scalp for 30-45 minutes. Further anesthesia (numbing) mixture of 1% lidocaine and sodium bicarbonate is injected under the scalp. Sodium bicarbonate reduces burning property of lidocaine.
Niacin and dexpanthenol, which are B vitamins, allow the hair follicles to receive more PRP.. These are mixed with PRP (platelet rich plasma), 2% lidocaine and calcium chloride. Please let us know if you have an allergy to any of these things. These B vitamins can cause a flushing response. You may feel warm and you may look red, but the response will resolve while you are in office with us. If we find that the flushing response is very intense, then at your next visit, we will cut back the dose of these B vitamins. Mixture of PRP with these B vitamins is injected into the anesthetized (numbed) areas of the scalp. PRP is then brushed onto the scalp using a sterile paint brush. A nano pen is used to penetrate the PRP into the scalp.
Don't get your hair done within the week prior to getting your hair restoration treatment. This will be a waste of your money. DO NOT WASH PRP FROM YOUR SCALP UNTIL 8 HOURS HAVE PAST SINCE YOUR PROCEDURE WITH US. Resist the urge to wash your scalp and hair before that 8 hour marker so that you do NOT lose the benefit of PRP treatments. Although your scalp may still be a little sore, you are okay to get your hair done within 24 hours following your hair restoration treatment.
Please be sure that you bring a hat with you to protect your head over the next eight hours following your hair restoration treatment.
