HAIR RESTORATION PROGRAM

Most people will experience some sort of hair loss or hair thinning throughout their life. There are many different reasons why hair loss and hair thinning may occur including genetics, hormonal changes, a poor diet, an underlying medical condition, stress and/or lifestyle. Hair thinning and hair loss can be upsetting, but it’s not always permanent.

Here at PUR Skin Clinic, we now offer a Hair Restoration Program, a comprehensive treatment program that includes an advanced, non-surgical treatment, non-drug oral supplements and a custom-formulated, topical preparation designed specifically for your needs and treatment goals. When completed together, this comprehensive program works to promote natural hair growth and restore a fuller, younger-looking head of hair without the need for invasive surgery or the discomfort of other hair restoration methods.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is the PUR Skin Hair Restoration Program?

To understand how the PUR Skin Hair Restoration Program works, we first have to understand how hair grows on the body. There are three stages in which hair grows on the body: Anagen, Catagen and Telogen. The average scalp has about 100,000 follicles and each of these follicles are usually in a different stage of this cycle:

The Three Stages

Anagen is the active growing stage that lasts anywhere from two to eight years. On average, the scalp will have 90 to 95 percent of the hair follicles in this stage.

Catagen is the transition stage where hair stops growing and can last anywhere from four to six weeks.

Telogen is the resting stage of the hair growth cycle where hair falls out. Hair can last in this stage anywhere from two to three months. On average, the scalp will have about five to ten percent of the hair follicles in this stage, which means anywhere from 100 to 150 hairs can fall out every day.

The PUR Skin Hair Restoration Program includes PRP (platelet-rich plasma) Hair Restoration Therapy, which is a safe and effective way of slowing and reversing hair loss and helps stimulate new hair growth for both men and women. Studies have shown that PRP treatments can be a great option to help increase hair count, hair thickness and promote the growth phase of the hair cycle.

PRP uses the platelet-rich plasma found in the blood to help promote natural hair growth in the scalp. Our blood is made up of two main components: red blood cells and plasma. Plasma is made up of white blood cells and platelets, which also contain growth factors. Growth factors act as messengers by telling the skin cells how to function. When it comes to thinning hair and hair loss, growth factors work to “wake up” the hair follicles and as a result, help new hair grow and help maintain the new hair growth.

PRP treatments have been used for years in traditional medicine to heal wounds, injuries and treat orthopedic complaints. In the cosmetic space, PRP is used effectively in the face for collagen stimulation, the hair for scalp healing and hair regrowth, and is an additional component for more invasive procedures to facilitate quicker healing.

How Does the PUR Skin Hair Restoration Program Work?

Our Hair Restoration Program is a multiple step, comprehensive treatment that includes:

  • Multiple PRP hair injection treatments
  • Nutrafol, a non-drug oral supplement
  • Hair Restoration Max Rx, a custom-formulated, topical preparation prescribed by your provider 

When completed together, the entire Hair Restoration Program works to restore a fuller, younger-looking head of hair without invasive surgery.

Our 3 Hair Restoration Treatment Steps

Step 1

A patient is scheduled for a consultation, prior to treatment, to meet with one of our medical providers who will determine if the patient is a good candidate for the Hair Restoration Program. During the initial consultation, the provider will discuss potential causes of hair loss and work with the patient to develop a personalized treatment plan that’s specifically focused on their goals and desired outcome.

Step 2

After the initial consultation, a patient is scheduled for their first PRP injection. During this treatment, a patient’s blood is drawn from the arm and then put into a centrifuge, a machine that spins the blood tube to separate out the red blood cells from the plasma. After the blood tubes have been in the centrifuge for 10 minutes, the blood will have separated into three layers: platelet-poor plasma, platelet-rich plasma and red blood cells.

Once separated, the platelet-rich plasma is then injected directly into the scalp at the level of the hair follicle, in areas where hair thinning occurs or hair growth is desired. The injections are made across the scalp, approximately at every half inch over the area of thinning hair or hair loss. Treatment time for a PRP treatment can take less than 30 minutes.

Step 3

After the first PRP treatment, the provider will prescribe Nutrafol (a non-drug oral supplement) and Hair Restoration Max Rx (a custom-formulated, topical preparation that’s designed specifically for the patient’s needs.) Going forward, the patient will be scheduled for future PRP treatments, one month apart while completing their oral supplements and topical preparation at home, in-between treatments.

How Many PRP Treatments Are Needed?

The amount of PRP treatments depend on the patient’s condition they’re focusing on along with their specific goals and concerns. For optimal results, we recommended six treatments, one month apart. If you are a patient who would like to continue to grow hair or thicken your current hair, one maintenance treatment every 6-12 months may be beneficial to you. During the initial consultation, the medical provider will work with the patient to develop a personalized treatment plan, specifically designed for their goals and concerns.

Who Is A Good Candidate For the PUR Skin Hair Restoration Program?

The great part about the PUR Skin Hair Restoration Program is almost anyone is a candidate. This includes anyone experiencing thinning hair or hair loss. Early prevention is key when it comes to treating hair loss. In general, patients with early hair loss tend to have the best results.

What is the Success Rate of the PUR Skin Hair Restoration Program?

Our Hair Restoration Program is most successful and effective on patients who are experiencing hair loss and thinning, as opposed to those with severe hair loss who have a completely smoothed scalp. This comprehensive treatment program includes an advanced, non-surgical treatment, non-drug oral supplements and a custom-formulated topical preparation, that when all completed together, work to promote natural hair growth and restore a fuller, younger-looking head of hair without invasive surgery or the discomfort of other hair restoration methods.

For optimal results, we recommended six PRP treatments, one month apart. Anticipated results can be seen within two to three months of receiving the first treatment. The first sign of results from this treatment include a decrease in hair shedding, followed by regrowth and increased hair length. If you are a patient who would like to continue to grow hair or thicken your current hair, one maintenance PRP treatment every 6-12 months may be beneficial to you.

Is the PUR Hair Restoration Program Safe?

Besides the blood draw and injections, there’s very limited risk with the Hair Restoration Program. PRP Treatments are considered safe and “autologous”, meaning that the cells and tissues come from the patient’s own body. This naturally occurring procedure utilizes the body’s own components, making it safe. There’s no risk of added ingredients, or foreign material.

Are There Any Side Effects With the PUR Hair Restoration Program?

Most patients who receive PRP Treatments experience minimal downtime, if any, and very few side effects. Patients can resume normal activity after treatments. Numbing cream, cool air and ice packs are available for any patients who experience discomfort during their treatment. 

After treatment, if a patient still experiences discomfort, we recommend taking a Tylenol. Bruising may occur for some patients, but this often goes away within a week or two. Some patients with bleeding or clotting disorders, or patients who take blood thinning medications will want to discuss bleeding or bruising risks with their provider during the consultation, prior to treatment.

For all of our patients, we recommend taking a warm shower after treatment because the warm temperature helps enhance blood flow and circulation throughout the scalp. We also recommend going a day or two with any typical hair maintenance. This includes coloring, processing, blow drying, etc.

Nutrafol is considered a 100% drug-free oral supplement. This supplement does not come with side effects that other pharmaceutical-based treatments do.

The Hair Restoration Rx is a custom-formulated topical preparation that is prescribed to you by your provider after your first PRP treatment. This prescribed formulation is specific to both women and men. 

For the Hair Restoration Max Rx for Women, the active ingredients in this formulation include: Minoxidil, Progesterone and Tretinoin (a topical retinoid.) For the Hair Restoration Max Rx for Men, the active ingredients in this formulation include: Finasteride (used topically to treat male pattern hair loss in men only), Minoxidil and Tretinoin (a topical retinoid.)

A common side effect for either one of the Hair Restoration Max Rx formulations can be a slight scalp dryness/irritation that resolves over time. This side effect is common whenever introducing any type of retinol to the skin. The irritation is generally minimal and varies by the dose of the topical treatment.

How Much Does the PUR Skin Hair Restoration Program Cost?

This treatment program can range in cost due to the size of the area being treated and the variability in treatments, supplements and topical preparation a patient may need during the program. During the initial consultation, the medical provider will determine if the patient is a good candidate for the program, work with the patient to develop a personalized treatment plan and provide package pricing based off of the specific recommendations made for the patient for their goals and desired outcome with the program.

Love this place! I have had the best Botox treatment ever administered by Denice and I’ve had microdermabrasion that was perfect for my sensitive skin. I’ve sent two of my friends there. I highly recommend PUR.

C.R.

Denice was highly recommended by a friend 10 years older than me. My friend looks beautiful while also natural and not like she’s “trying” to look younger. Denice listens to my priorities each time I see her and works very carefully to fulfill them. I consider Denice a tool in my beauty toolbox, like workouts and eating well. With her help, I feel more beautiful than ever!
