Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that removes hair follicles from one part of the body, called the 'donor site', to a bald or balding part of the body known as the 'recipient site'. The technique is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness.
We will shave the back of your scalp. Then we will remove hair follicles one by one from there. The area heals with small dots, which your existing hair will cover. We will delicately place each graft the recipient site.
After the surgery, your scalp may be very tender. You need to wear bandages over your scalp for at least two days. You may also need to take an antibiotic and/or an anti-inflammatory drug for you to take for several days. Most people are able to return to work 2 to 5 days after the operation.
Possible side effect
Within 2 to 3 weeks after the transplant, the transplanted hair will fall out, but you should start to notice new growth within a few months. Most people will see 60% of new hair growth after 6 to 9 months.
We also suggest patient to get PRP injection to the donor site and recipient site along with hair transplant, which will help the donor site hair stay healthy or become healthier, and will help the recipient site hair grow successful rate increase significantly.
Most people are surprised there is virtually no pain during an FUE hair transplant procedure done under a local anesthetic except mild discomfort may occur as a local anesthetic is injected into the scalp. After the FUE surgery, patients will typically feel some minor discomfort.
Introducing PRO-NOX™ to the Practice
During the past few years, some of Dr. Davis’ patients have said that they want to have the office procedures Dr. Davis offered done, but they are so afraid of even minor pain. That is why Dr. Davis has made the decision to bring PRO-NOX™ into her practice.
What is PRO-NOX™?
PRO-NOX™ is a pneumatically driven gas system designed to deliver a 50% oxygen and 50% nitrous oxide mixture to adult and pediatric patients for the relief of pain and anxiety during their office procedures. (Dentists have been using it for dental procedures for many years). It is patient-controlled Inhaled Analgesia for In-Office Use and takes effect in seconds, offering immediate relief of pain and anxiety. It is ideal for aesthetic effort for office procedures.
Portable, and easy to use while decreasing the risk of infection, many doctor practices in the United States are choosing the PRO-NOX™ Nitrous Oxide System.
This device will allow more patients to undergo office procedures under local anesthesia with minimal awareness. The purpose of the device is to make local office procedures more comfortable and safer, while allowing the patient to see optimal results.
How Does It Work?
PRO-NOX™ is administered by the patient, and works to decrease pain, anxiety, and awareness during the procedure. Following the procedure, the patient will be able to drive themselves home, and will be fully aware. This device will allow for more office procedures under local anesthesia and will allow for increased patient comfort.
PRO-NOX™ can be used for many office treatments and procedures, including P Shot, O shot, Vampire Face, Vampire Face Lift, Vampire Breast Lift, Vampire Hair, Vampire hair, Hair restoration, permanent makeup, tattoo removal, Botox and fillers, Thread Lift for Face and Body, lasers, and more.
Hair Restoration for Men and Women
-most common type is androgenic alopecia
-it is a health and psychological problems, can increase incidence of depression
-many products on the markets for hair loss are ineffective.
Vampire Hair at Texas Anti-Aging Center;
-we use high concentration of PRP
-activated platelets release granular contests
-granular contests contain many growth factors, which stimulate hair follicle
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is essentially an increased concentration of autologous (your own) platelets suspended in a small amount of plasma after centrifugation. Patient’s blood is collected and centrifuged until it is separated into 3 layers: platelet poor plasma (PPP), PRP, and red blood cells.
In our center we use 2 spins method (which is one of the best methods to obtain PRP) by separating PRP (Plasma Rich Plasma) from PPP (Plasma Poor Plasma). 1st spin separates PPP from red fraction and PRP. 2nd spin separates the red fraction from PRP.
Platelets play a fundamental role in hemostasis and are a natural source of growth factors (GF). GF include: platelet derived growth factor (PDGF), insulin like growth factor (IGF), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), platelet derived angiogenic factor (PDAF), and transforming growth factor beta (TGF), etc. In addition to growth factors, platelets release numerous other substances, e.g.: fibronectin, vitronectin, sphingosine, 1-phosphate, etc.
PRP stimulates wound healing and tissue regeneration, decreases scar formation, and shortens healing time by involving in key stages including chemotaxis, migration, proliferation, differentiation, angiogenesis, osteogenesis, and collagen synthesis, etc.
Biopsy studies show that when PRP is injected, stem cells multiply and grow new, younger tissue.
PRP has been used for more than 20 years by professional athletes and has been used clinically by orthopedic surgeons, dentists, and wound care centers, etc. There has never even been one serious reaction to PRP prepared by an FDA approved kit in any part of the body.
