Non-Surgical Hair Restoration
New York City Hair Restoration Doctor Roy B. Stoller, D.O offers three non-surgical Hair Restoration options designed to help you re-grow your own natural hair. Both male and female patients can benefit from these conservative treatment approaches if they wish to avoid surgery or do not have significant enough hair loss to warrant it. During your initial consultation with Doctor Stoller, he will diagnose the cause of your hair loss and consider your history before making a specific treatment recommendation. Dr. Stoller will examine your scalp and hair to determine follicle health as well. Lastly, you will have the opportunity to see the type of results you can expect with each procedure with the aid of a computer program.
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
LLLT is a form of phototherapy that emits red wavelengths that stimulate dormant hair follicles to produce new hairs again. Doctor Stoller places the device directly above your head when you come to his Madison Avenue clinic for treatment. You do not feel any discomfort during the procedure whatsoever. This solution is often preferable to taking medication because it does not produce any side effects. Additionally, Doctor Stoller may recommend LLLT after hair transplant surgery to speed up the process at which the transplanted hair follicles grow.
To achieve the desired results, it’s important to commit to three sessions per week for a period of four to six months. Each appointment is just 25 minutes long, giving you the opportunity to rest and relax while you wait for the time to expire. Doctor Stoller also offers LC PRO, which is a wireless device worn directly on the head. Patients who have used LC PRO report that it stopped the progression of hair loss in 90 percent of cases and produced new hair growth 50 percent of the time.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
PRP is rich with nutrients and blood platelets that promote self-healing. Sports medicine doctors and those who treat chronic pain have relied on PRP for many years to bring fast and natural healing to their patients. New York City Non-Surgical Hair Restoration Doctor Roy B. Stoller, D.O. began offering PRP several years ago because it has been proven to help stimulate the production of and repair of hair follicles.
Doctor Stoller obtains a blood sample from you at the start of each PRP session and the immediately places it in a centrifuge. The spinning action separates your whole blood from the PRP that he uses for treatment. After retrieving the PRP and mixing it with a filling solution, he places it in a needle and injects it into your scalp. Of course, you receive a numbing anesthetic before the PRP injection. The benefit of this procedure is that the PRP travels directly to the hair follicles to stimulate them to produce healthy hair once again.
Roy Stoller, D.O. may recommend PRP with LLLT or after a surgical hair restoration procedure in addition to making it available as a stand-alone treatment. He typically advises patients who receive PRP on its own to come in for one injection every three months. It is also suitable for eyebrow restoration and to treat non-hereditary hair loss.
Scalp Micro-Pigmentation (SMP)
Also known as scalp tattooing, Doctor Stoller uses SMP to place micro-dots of ink to your scalp in the same color as your remaining hair. The entire process takes three to four hours to complete over two to three sessions. This is to account for the different rates at which people’s scalps absorb the ink. SMP is ideal to cover bald spots and scars from other hair restoration procedures. It creates the appearance of hair in the density that you desire. You can also request SMP to restore or shape your eyebrows.
Roy B. Stoller, D.O. looks forward to helping you achieve your hair restoration goals through one of these non-surgical procedures.
