Thinning facial hair can leave you feeling self-conscious and make your facial features appear imbalanced. Facial hair restoration procedures can help you restore even and full hair to targeted areas such as eyebrows, mustache, or beard. Men are usually concerned sparse beard or mustache hair, while men and women may be unhappy with the appearance of thin, sparse brows.
There are several types of hair restoration procedures, but our board-certified plastic surgeon focuses on providing his patients with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) for hair loss. PRP facial hair restoration is a non-surgical method of boosting natural hair growth in inactive hair follicles. If your hair follicles have begun to produce thin, fine hair, rather than thick, sturdy strands, PRP hair restoration works to regenerate the hair follicle to produce healthier hairs, leading to thicker-look hair. In your initial consultation, Dr. Repta will help you determine the most effective hair restoration technique for you.
Types of Facial Hair Restoration
The methods for improving quality and thickness of facial hair include:
PRP Hair Restoration: PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is separated from a small blood sample and then injected into areas where hair is sparse or thinning. This revolutionary treatment utilizes your body’s regenerative process to initiate hair growth in follicles whose growth has slowed or stopped.
Hair Transplants: During a hair transplant, individual follicles are harvested from the back of the head, and the follicles placed in areas where hair is thinning due to hereditary or environmental factors.
Medications & Creams: There are several prescription medications available that can slow the progression of hair loss. One of these medications may be prescribed to work in conjunction PRP facial hair restoration.
Dr. Repta advocates for PRP hair restoration due to the many benefits to the patient. Minimal pain and recovery time are key advantages. However, the use of your own cells for treatment eliminates the risk of infection, rejection, or complications associated with a more invasive procedure.
Beard & Mustache Hair Restoration
Men often associate their ability to grow a mustache or beard with a masculine look. If you have a thin or patchy beard, the inconsistent appearance can prevent you from growing an attractive beard, mustache, or goatee. Hair restoration can give you the confidence to have healthier, more abundant facial hair.
Hair restoration treatments can fill in virtually any area on cheeks, jawline, or sideburns where you have thin or patchy hair. Our Scottsdale plastic surgeon will help you with this advance regenerative process to increase hair growth in the targeted facial area, whether upper lip, beard, or brows.
Eyebrow Hair Restoration
The eyebrows are an important feature of the face, framing your eyes and creating balance with your other facial features. Thin or patchy eyebrows can make your forehead appear larger or make your eye area less prominent and appealing. Hair restoration for the eyebrows can give you a natural arch with new growth of natural hair.
PRP Facial Hair Restoration Procedure Steps
If you choose to undergo PRP hair restoration treatment with Dr. Repta, the procedure starts with drawing a small sample of your blood. The blood is placed in a centrifuge where it is purified and to concentrate the natural growth factors (PRP). The PRP is carefully prepared and then injected into the specific area of thinning, whether beard, mustache, or brows. Over the weeks and months following your procedure, you will notice new natural hair growth.
Benefits of PRP Facial Hair Restoration
PRP in hair restoration has provided an effective non-surgical method of stimulating natural hair growth. The procedure does not involve incisions and is virtually pain-free, eliminating the scars and recovery time of standard hair restoration treatments. You can trigger your body to grow new hair on eyebrows, beard, or mustache with no detectable signs that you have had a procedure. Your hair will continue to grow in over the next few months, giving you a natural transition to fuller, more attractive facial hair.
