Nothing says youth and health like a full head of luscious hair. Unfortunately, as we age our hair can thin and become dry and brittle. A number of medical conditions and prescription drugs can also negatively affect our hair, leading to embarrassing hair loss for men and women alike that lowers our self-esteem and has us reaching for beanies and baseball hats. At Refined Dermatology in Los Gatos, regaining your youthful appearance isn’t just about the quality of your skin (but that’s a biggie). Great skin can only get you so far when your hair is subpar. Want to find out how you can restore your hair to a luscious sheen? We invite you to meet Dr. Steven Swengel, learn about other services for men, and get in touch with our office today by calling 408-384-3845.
Utilize your body’s own natural means of re-starting hair growth with platelets your blood already produces, concentrated, for an instant jolt of hair restoration magic. When you inject platelet-rich plasma into the scalp, it reactivates “sleeping” hair follicles. Everyone is born with an average amount of hairs per follicle, usually ranging from one to five. Thinning hair is often a decrease in hairs per follicle. This hair growth can be reactivated as long as the follicle isn’t “dead,” or at zero hairs per follicle.
Need a little more help? Smart Grafts are minor surgical procedures that use state of the art tech, no scalpels, for a permanent* solution. FUE, or follicular unit extraction, is a process that transplants hair follicles from one place to another. Make use of the thick parts of your hair (most of us have them), and move that fullness to the places you need it most. No overnight stays or hospital Jell-O required.
Smart Graft is coupled with PRP to encourage transplanted hair to root into the scalp forever*. These follicles can fall out in the first few months after treatment, but PRP can prevent excessive fallout. Refined Dermatology can create new hairlines, restore bald spots, and even place hair follicles in the eyebrows! Who needs microblading when you can have your real hair perfectly shaped as you wish?
Maybe your biggest complaint isn’t lack of hair, but too much of it. We’ve got you covered with the latest laser hair removal procedures. An average woman spends 72 days of her life shaving just her legs. Men spend an average of 45 days of their life shaving their face and neck. Get your time back with laser hair removal, one of the most popular services for men.
A lot of patients ask us what the difference is between hair loss and hair restoration. For hair loss, medical treatments may include medication, supplements, and topical solutions like Minoxidil (largely for alopecia patients). However, PRP and Smart Graft are cosmetic treatments designed for hair restoration. Not sure if you need hair restoration treatments or hair loss treatments? Schedule a consultation and find out by calling 408-384-3845.
