What Causes Hair Loss? Hair loss is extremely common, affection some 40 million women and 60 million men in this country. While hair loss occurs in men and women, it is usually more dramatic in men. There are numerous causes for hair loss, ranging from Various medications to illness and infections, to chemicals, pregnancy, and even stress. However, the biggest cause of hair loss in both genders is simply the result of predetermined genetic factors and the overall aging process. Many adults may experience the beginning of thinning of hair starting as early as their 30s and 40s. What Is Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix? Platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) therapy is the next generation of platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP). PRP is a breakthrough procedure in which a patient’s own blood is processed into a substance that contains a 3 to 5 times higher than normal of healing platelets. The substance - PRP - is then injected back into a treatment area, to stimulate regeneration. PRFM utilizes a more advanced method of obtaining the concentrated formula, and in addition, processes your blood with a precise amount of calcium chloride. This enables the platelets to stay longer in the treatment area so the release of growth factors is sustained over a longer period of time for longer-lasting results. What Does Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix Therapy for Hair Rejuvenation Entail? The PRFM is injected into the thinning or bald area of the scalp, stimulating cell proliferation and hair regrowth. The entire procedure takes only 20 minutes, versus about an hour for traditional PRP. There is no downtime. Patients can shampoo and condition their hair and go about their normal daily activities immediately following treatment. Best results are typically observed with just 4 sessions. Individual results vary, but hair has been seen to double in thickness and density in a 6 month period.

Dermal Fillers Q & A

How Can Sagging Skin and Loss of Volume Be Corrected?

Achieving the most youthful look may first require the restoration of lost volume. To fill out the depressions in the skin, dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane, Sculptra, Volbella, and Voluma may be used. Once sufficient volume has been added, sagging skin can be corrected with treatments like ZO Glow. An Oxygen Mist treatment is another option. This treatment is sprayed directly onto the face, which provides quick absorption of ingredients that help firm and hydrate at the same time. By firming the skin naturally, the overall appearance can be greatly enhanced.

What Is Kybella?

Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin by physically destroying fat cells.

What Is ArqueDerma?

ArqueDerma redirects descended facial volume and stabilizes it upward using the dermal filler as a liquid glue instead of a volumizer. The results create a more natural and lifted appearance to restore your face to where it was years ago. ArqueDerma stimulates your own collagen, providing results lasting years, a more natural, yet dramatic effect than conventional filler methods. As we age, we lose 1 percent of our collagen a year. This lost collagen leads to sagging and draping of our skin. ArqueDerma creatively lifts, sculpts, and restores the structural support of your face back to its point of origin. ArqueDerma is the only patented dermal filler technique.
