3 0 FIT 2014-2015 Special Advertising Section Surgical hair restoration, or hair transplant, is one of the most effective treatments for hair loss and can result in improved self- esteem and a more youthful and vigorous appearance. The Parsley Waldman Hair Center was one of the earliest clinics in the world to adopt the technique of grafting microscopically prepared follicular units. Today, this specifc technique is the "gold standard" of hair restoration surgery because it offers the most natural looking results. Previous hair transplant patients describe the procedure as "minimally painful" using local numbing medicine. Patients Have Non-Surgical Hair Loss Treatment Options at Parsley Waldman Hair Center Performed in the offce, in an outpatient setting, patients watch movies as the team performs the transplant. Hair growth is gradual over the next 12-18 months. Once transplanted, the hair should grow naturally for the rest of the person's life. Not everyone is a candidate for hair transplant. Thankfully, Parsley Waldman Hair Center patients have another option: PRP-ACell Treatment. The in-offce procedure is accomplished by drawing the patient's blood and spinning it out to separate the Protein Rich Plasma (PRP). This plasma contains growth factors proven promising in other medical areas. The plasma is then mixed with ACell Matristem, a product that is FDA approved for wound healing. Once combined, the PRP-ACell product is re-injected into the balding areas. The combination of the PRP and the ACell Matristem may stimulate thinning hair to regrow, helping hair loss in both men and women. The PRP-ACell hair renewal is performed in about an hour in the offce and under the supervision of Doctors William Parsley and Mark Waldman. There is little to no down time following the injections. Patients experience variable results, but may see growth as soon as 3-4 months following the injections. If new growth is noted, maintenance treatment may be required once or twice annually. Find out if surgical hair restoration or hair renewal treatment is right for you. Contact Parsley Waldman Hair Center to schedule a no obligation evaluation.
