Hair Loss Treatment in Ottawa
Hair loss is a condition that affects both men and women of all ages. Hair transplantation and medicated shampoos are the traditional treatments, however, medical advances have brought forward a simpler option for hair restoration.
The Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair reGrowth Treatment is an effective treatment for both men and women. PRP is a by-product of blood, which we obtain by separating the platelets from the red blood cells. These platelets have extensive healing properties. We use platelets on the scalp to awaken dormant follicles and reactivate hair growth, even after years of baldness.
Our Treatment Methods
The PRP Hair reGrowth Treatment is an in-office procedure that uses the platelets found in your blood plasma. The procedure begins with local anesthesia to the scalp before we take a blood sample from you. The centrifugation process allows us to separate the platelets from the red blood cells, giving us plasma that is rich in platelets. We then inject the PRP directly into the scalp, where the hair is thinning. At this point, the regenerative solution stimulates the dormant hair follicles.
Direct injection is just one of two proven PRP methods we use at Inovo. As a secondary method, a micro-needling pen is used to optimize results by creating micro-trauma on the scalp. At Inovo Medical, we use both Dermapen and the The Beauty Booster. The Beauty Booster has the benefit of 9 tiny needles injecting directly into the scalp with more precision, depth and accurate dosing. It also minimizes the pain and decreases both treatment time and downtime. The results may take several weeks to become apparent, but are amazing: a beautiful set of hair, without the need for hair transplantation.
Before beginning the treatment, our aesthetic professionals will first analyze your scalp to determine whether you are a good candidate. The success of the treatment largely depends on the presence of hair follicles under the scalp, which may disappear after years of baldness.
Laser Hair Stimulation
We typically combine the PRP Hair Regrowth Treatment with Fotona Laser Hair Stimulation.
There are only a few kinds of lasers that have been proven to be effective in the treatment of hair loss. At Inovo Medical, we use two of them: the Nd:YAG laser and the Er:YAG laser.
The laser treatments work in conjunction with the PRP treatments to stimulate follicles to produce new hair. The Fotona is one of the most advanced cosmetic lasers in the world and Inovo Medical is the only clinic to have this technology in Ottawa. The Fotona Laser Hair Stimulation treatment has a proven record of effectively working as a solo treatment.
