Dr. Julie Russak believes in a comprehensive approach to treat aging hair. Our unique protocol, backed by clinical studies, utilizes microneedling, platelet rich plasma (PRP) and exosome stem cell rejuvenation to stimulate hair growth and rejuvenation. “By the time you notice thinning, you’ve already lost 30 percent of your hair.” – Dr. Julie Russak
With professional treatments, oral supplements and prescription strength topicals, denser and fuller hair can be yours. Our signature regenerative therapy combined with a proprietary blend of vitamins and hair regrowth actives, complete with 10% minoxidil, help to reduce inflammation around the follicle and stimulate hair regrowth in as little as 2 months.
Causes of Hair Loss
Thinning hair can result from many different factors including family history, hormonal changes, certain diseases and medications, scalp imbalances and skin conditions, and very often stress. One of the leading causes of hair loss is stress – and due to the stress of the COVID pandemic, more and more patients have been plagued with frustrating hair loss. Stressful events trigger a stress response in the body, causing cortisol levels to spike. Cortisol is the stress hormone known to interfere with hair follicles, causing hair to leave the growth phase and jump into the shedding phase, a phenomenon known as telogen effluvium.
Due to the multifactorial nature of hair loss, we firmly believe in a comprehensive approach to treating aging hair. Our unique protocol, backed by clinical studies, utilizes platelet rich plasma and exosome stem cell injections, coupled with diffused microneedling, and topical and oral supplements. When hair follicles “quit” we deliver these actives into the scalp to awaken the follicle and stimulate hair growth. In addition, patients who experience “miniaturization” or hair thinning are ideal candidates for our hair restoration therapy. Our customized method utilizes microneedling technology and regenerative rejuvenation to reactivate hair follicles for fuller, denser hair. A series of 4 sessions spaced 1 month apart is recommended, with maintenance treatments every 4-6 months to maintain results and treat thinning hair ongoing.
With professional treatments, supplements and prescription strength topicals, denser and fuller hair can be yours. Hair Fortifying RX, our proprietary topical prescription spray, is a concentrated blend of vitamins and hair regrowth actives, complete with 10% minoxidil, which helps to reduce inflammation around the follicle and stimulate hair regrowth.
Your own blood, in the form of platelet rich plasma (PRP), is used to regenerate and stimulate dormant hair follicles. A small amount of blood is drawn and spun down to separate the components. Red and white blood cells are divided from platelets and plasma (clear gold fluid), leaving you with a higher concentration of platelets. Platelets contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors, which are known for their regenerative qualities. PRP is plasma with many more platelets than what is typically found in blood. Blood is spun via centrifuge to separate out the PRP, which contains hundreds of precious growth factor proteins known for their regenerative qualities. The concentration of platelets — and, thereby, the concentration of growth factors — can be 5 to 10 times greater than usual. When platelet rich plasma is infused into the scalp, it encourages hair growth at an accelerated rate.
Growth factors are responsible for “growth” in living cells. In order to ensure these valuable growth factors are penetrated directly to the hair follicle, we pair PRP with microneedling and injections, to address the follicles from the inside out. Microneedling ensures the valuable growth factors in the PRP can penetrate directly into the hair follicles, and injections allow the PRP to get even deeper into the skin. The growth factors in the PRP then stimulate stem cells around the hair follicles into an active growth phase.
Exosomes are a new breakthrough in regenerative therapy that trigger healing, cell stimulation, and natural regeneration, ideal to trigger and activate the growth of healthy hair follicles. Exosomes are extracellular vesicles, or small bubbles, released from stem cells. They are bioactive molecules that transmit genetic information and proteins from cell to cell, vital in all cellular regenerative processes. The exosomes released by regenerative cells such as stem cells are potent drivers of healing and repair, and we can now infuse them directly into your scalp for intensive hair rejuvenation benefits, to signal hair follicles to grow healthy hair.
If you’re struggling with thinning hair or want to enhance your existing hair density, this multi-step treatment is the perfect minimally invasive, non-surgical solution.
Combining the power of platelet rich plasma, regenerative cellular exosomes, microneedling mesotherapy, and proprietary topical and oral supplements, hair growth is possible. We are able to achieve intensive hair restoration and impressive results including a fuller scalp, new longer and thicker hair growth, a tighter part, less shedding and overall healthier hair.
