The Hair Transplant Center of NYC http://www.hairtransplantcenternyc.com located in Manhattan, New York announced today the addition of the Eclipse MicroPen™ Micro-Needling & Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) medical device for hair restoration.
Already a popular NYC destination for Neograft™ hair transplants, the addition of micro-needling and PRP offers patients of the center a more conservative approach to hair restoration.
Micro-needling for hair restoration uses sterile needle tips containing 12 tiny micro-needles to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin. This initiates the skin’s repair process to naturally produce collagen and elastin, an ideal environment to regrow the patient’s own natural hair.
Micro-channels created by the treatment allow for optimal absorption of topical products and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), enhancing their effects in the deeper layers of skin.
Platelet Rich Plasma is a concentration of platelets in the blood that are crucial to wound healing. When used for hair restoration, PRP releases growth factors into the skin to expedite the body’s own repair process and stimulate new collagen and elastin – an ideal environment to stimulate new hair growth.
Blood is drawn from the arm in the same way as with any blood test. Then, using a centrifuge and a special method, platelet rich plasma is isolated.
A numbing cream is applied liberally to the scalp. Using a very thin needle, the growth factors are injected into the scalp. Once injected, the platelets immediately activate the body’s localized stem cells and begin rejuvenating and revitalizing the scalp to produce hair growth.
The NeoGraft™ hair transplant technique, currently the gold standard in hair transplants / hair restoration, uses a tiny surgical punch to extract follicular units from the scalp. NeoGraft™ is a minimally-invasive technique that applies suction to automatically remove hair grafts from the donor area.
Once extracted and collected, the hair grafts are carefully separated by size, and are then ready to be transplanted into the bald or thinning areas on the scalp. Neograft presents a virtually scarless hair transplant technique and does not use scalpel, suture, or staples.
Douglas Senderoff, MD, FACS (a board certified plastic surgeon) the Director of The Hair Transplant Center of NYC stated, “Many patients choose both Neograft hair transplant technology with Micro-Needling and PRP.
The combination of both techniques leads to highly effective results and is certainly a best in class offering to our patients”.
