Regenerative medicine can be defined as ‘an interdisciplinary field of research and clinical applications focused on the repair, replacement or regeneration of cells, tissues or organs to restore impaired function resulting from any cause, including congenital defects, disease, trauma and ageing’.
Regenerative aesthetics refers to the application of regenerative medicine principles in aesthetic or cosmetic treatments, products and services. Regenerative medicine is the harnessing or management of the body’s own natural potential to repair, restore and rejuvenate damaged or aging cells and structures to a more healthy and youthful state. The human body is blessed with an incredible potential to repair and rejuvenate itself through the intricate and complicated interaction of growth factors and specific signaling peptides.
Vampire Hair™ Restoration
Hair loss can be traumatic for both men and women!
It used to be that the only option for hair loss was OTC hair products or cleansing, and the last option would be hair transplant surgery. Both of these options either the patients couldn’t afford, they were an inconvenience or they just didn’t work. Discouragement, trauma and depression were the only options left until now!
Vampire Hair™ Restoration treatment uses substances within the platelet portion of the patient’s own blood to stimulate new hair growth and reactivate the dormant hair stem cells.
As with all of our Vampire Procedures, studies show the use of PRP to be an effective therapeutic option for men and women experiencing hair loss.
Vampire Hair™ Restoration
Unlike topical synthetic products like minoxidil that stimulate hair growth but have limited effect, regenerative techniques utilizing the patient’s own PRP as well as biomimetic growth factors have revolutionized the treatment of hair loss and hair restoration. Thus, providing a more natural and long-lasting stimulation of the native hair follicle and healthier hair growth.
What to expect during the Vampire Hair™ Restoration?
The physician, Kevin Smith, MD, will come in and look at the scalp to determine how much PRP will be needed for the procedure. RMBI staff will then come in and clean the scalp and put a topical numbing cream over the area that will be treated. We will then draw your blood and begin the double spin PRP process. The numbing cream will need to sit for an approximately 30 minutes.
Kevin Smith, MD, will inject the PRP directly into the scalp using a grid pattern over the entire thinning or balding area. Using our micro-needling pen Dr. Smith will then apply a second layer of PRP. This will activate the dormant hair follicles from underneath the surface as well as on the surface of the scalp. Thus, assuring that the patient gets the best results.
Dr. Charles Runels inventor and genius mind behind this revolutionary treatment has changed the lives of so many with hair loss. Kevin Smith, MD has been trained by Dr. Runels and certified in all of the Vampire Procedures including Vampire Hair™ Restoration.
When will you see results with Vampire Hair™ Restoration?
Just like with all PRP procedures the patient will see the full results between 8 and 12 weeks. However, the patient should start to see a difference after the first 2-3 weeks. Each patient heals differently so the results are different for each individual.
