Hair loss affects millions of men and women each year, and it is not a condition that goes away on its own. Rather than buy hairpieces or cover the condition with hats, we can restore your natural hair with both surgical and non-surgical hair restoration at MEDE Spa Aesthetic Institute.
Located in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania, MEDE Spa Aesthetic Institute is led by Dr. Franco Picofazzi. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and have thinning areas on your head examined to determine if hair restoration treatment is right for you.
What Causes Hair Loss?
Hair loss can affect both women and men and can be caused by a variety of factors such as heredity, hormonal changes, medications, or underlying medical reasons. There are several different types of hair loss, and during your consultation, Dr. Picofazzi and our medical team will thoroughly examine your condition to determine which course of treatment is best for you.
Surgical Hair Restoration
For a highly-noticeable receding hairline, hair restoration surgery may be recommended to provide extensive coverage to the areas that tend to lose hair the fastest. This is a simple, comfortable procedure that is performed in our office and utilizes the strips of donor tissue from areas such as the back of the head that are not genetically affected by baldness.
After the health and effectiveness of the graft is evaluated, Dr. Picofazzi will carefully graft the donor tissue onto the head, ensuring that the hair will grow in the correct direction and create a full, natural-looking head of hair.
Will There Be Any Scarring?
Hair restoration surgery almost always results in some visible scarring, but this will fade over time and is easily concealable at the back of the head with your new, transplanted hair. Doctor Picofazzi has extensive experience with this procedure and will take special care to make the surgical scarring as minimally-visible as possible.
Is There Any Recovery Time?
Although you should have someone drive you home after surgery, the recovery time after hair restoration surgery is typically minimal with simple, easy-to-follow post-surgical instructions to ensure the healthy growth of your transplanted hair.
Are There Non-Surgical Hair Restoration Options?
At MEDE, we also offer multiple non-surgical solutions to hair restoration with medications such as Rogaine®, Propecia, and Avodart. These options can be discussed during your consultation, and Dr. Picofazzi will help you decide on a treatment plan based on your individual condition and preferences.
