Regrow thicker, fuller hair—naturally
Have you been noticing more hair in the shower drain or on the floor than in your head lately? Hair loss and thinning is an extremely common issue that affects millions of men and women. The good news is, there are options to restore your thick, full head of hair! Medical Aesthetics & Laser offers hair restoration in The Woodlands using growth factor-abundant platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from your own blood.
Recent advances in PRP therapy allow us to stimulate the regeneration of hair follicles, naturally. There is no invasive method, strange looking hair plugs, or downtime to worry about with our PRP hair restoration in The Woodlands. The growth factors in your PRP send messages to the hair follicles to function properly, promoting new activity and hair growth on your scalp.

How it Works
If you suffer from male-pattern baldness or female-pattern baldness, a condition that affects 80 million Americans, come to Medical Aesthetics & Laser for PRP hair restoration in The Woodlands. We help our patients recover from the loss in self-confidence that comes with thinning hair or the appearance of bald spots with the power of their own natural PRP.
We gently draw your blood and spin it in a centrifuge to extract the platelet-rich plasma. The PRP is then re-delivered below the skin of the scalp with thin needle injections to stimulate follicles and hair regrowth at the source. With a single treatment, and consistently following our post-treatment instructions and recommendations, patients will see increased follicular growth and activity within 2 weeks.

Any men or women experiencing hair loss are good candidates for PRP treatments. Those who respond best to treatments tend to be those in the earlier stages of hair loss with functioning hair follicles.
Hair thinning and loss is a problem that affects millions of American men and women. The main cause of hair loss is heredity and can be strongly influenced by other factors like age, nutrition, stress, surgery, medications, illness, hair care, and more.
We can measure improvements on your scalp months before results are visible to the naked eye, looking for new and increased follicular activity at the scalp. It usually takes six to twelve months to judge the visual results of PRP hair restoration in the mirror or with standard photos.
Most patients find that after the desired results are achieved, they will see results they are satisfied with for up to 18 months. We recommend having a yearly PRP treatment to ensure the results are maintained.
Treatment costs can vary depending on your unique needs. Your Medical Aesthetics & Laser specialist will provide you with the exact cost of your PRP hair restoration procedure up front in your initial consultation. We can also accept CareCredit to cover the cost of your treatment.
