State-Of-The-Art Hair Restoration Technology At Avalon Laser
At Avalon Laser, we understand that thinning and balding hair is an aesthetic concern for many. That’s why we offer a state-of-the-art medical treatment to address this issue. Led by Dr. Reza Tirgari, we offer the Avalon Hair ReStore treatment to help restore the remaining hair you have and stimulate the growth of hair. By using the Selphyl® PRFM System, we can address your concerns about thinning hair and help to restore you self-confidence how you look.
What Is The Selphyl PRFM System For Hair Restoration?
At Avalon Laser, we stay ahead of the curve on the latest developments in aesthetic technology and use the Selphyl PRFM system to help our patients restore healthy hair growth. This advanced PRP treatment coverts PRP to “platelet rich fibrin matrix,” or PRFM, with a precise quantity of calcium chloride added which initiates the formation of a three dimensional scaffold that holds the PRP in place at the injection site to achieve superior results, so the growth factors in the PRP work longer and better to restore hair follicles.
We have chosen the Selphyl® PRFM system as we believe our clients deserve the latest developments in hair restoration. This revolutionary new system takes conventional platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment to a new level.
PRP has been in use in various medical treatments for nearly a decade as it’s shown to have restorative properties. PRP has generally been used in areas of medicine such as orthopedic medicine and reconstructive surgery to aid in the healing process after procedures.
Regenerative Treatment For Hair Restoration: Selphyl
The system Selphyl® uses creates a platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM), which enables the platelets to be maintained longer at the injection site. This means that the benefits of PRP are experienced for longer periods, helping the regenerative, restoration, and growth factor processes to work more for you over a longer period of time.
How Does It Work?
This prolonged-release stimulates the stem cells, dermal cellular survival, and angiogenesis, which is a physiological process where new blood vessels form from pre-existing vessels. It’s these factors that help hair increase in thickness and the survival of hair follicles. This treatment has shown to be a viable alternative to hair transplant surgery for those who suffer from mild to moderate hair loss and thinning. However, for more severe cases of hair loss, surgery may need to be considered.
The benefits of this system for hair restoration include:
- Non-surgical treatment
- No scarring
- Pain-free treatment
- No recovery time needed
- Much less cost compared to surgery
- Quicker results (surgical hair restoration often suggests one year for final results)
- No temporary hair loss post-surgery
Because the PRFM used is taken from your own blood, there is virtually no risk of side-effects or allergic reaction to treatment.
However, as with any injectable treatment, there are some minor effects that individuals may experience at the site of injection. This may include:
- Temporary, mild irritation
- Temporary discoloration
- Minor swelling, itching, and/or bruising
Because there is no risk for health side-effects, Avalon Hair ReStore treatment with the Selphyl® PRFM System can be used for nearly anyone experienced thinning and balding, although, it’s recommended to have a thorough consultation with our doctor to determine if this treatment is right for your type and severity of hair loss.
What Is The Avalon
Hair ReStore Procedure?
Our San Diego hair restoration is relatively quick, with each session generally only taking up to one hour. Once it’s been decided that the Avalon Hair ReStore treatment is right for you, your appointment will begin with the doctor drawing a small amount of your own blood which is placed in a collection tube with separating gel.
This is then placed in a centrifuge to extract the platelet-rich plasma from the red and white blood cells. Once this occurs, the PRP then sits for a short period with a solution of calcium chloride to create the PRFM.
- After the PRFM is ready, the doctor will use a topical anesthetic on your scalp to temporarily numb the area being injected. The PRFM is then injected into the target areas.
- Depending on the level of hair thinning and loss, a series of three treatment sessions roughly four to six weeks apart may be needed to complete the restoration process. After the final injection, it may take anywhere from three to six months to see visible results.
- After the procedure, it’s recommended that you refrain from massaging or aggressively rubbing your head for at least 72 hours. This also includes taking precautions to gently wash your hair and trying not to sleep on the treated areas during this time to fully allow the matrix of PRFM to release into your scalp.
Dr. Reza Tirgari has been a leader in cosmetic surgery in the San Diego area and has extensive experience helping people look and feel their best. He’s happy to provide this treatment to those suffering from mild to moderate hair loss and while other facilities offer PRP treatments, only Avalon Laser offers the advanced Selphyl® PRFM System for your hair restoration.
