Hair loss affects a large part of the US adult population. Many patients become self-conscious about their balding or thinning hair, and may experience frustration when the conventional hair re-growth methods fail to work.
Nanofat hair restoration is an innovative procedure that can produce stronger and thicker hair in a safe, non-surgical way.
What is nanofat?
Nanofat refers to the natural fat cells that are harvested from your own body and purified with the help of an advanced filtration process to yield micronized fat.
This fat is then injected into the depleted areas of the scalp using a small gauge needle to promote robust hair re-growth. The purpose of nanofat is not to provide volume and structure, but to stimulate hair follicles.
How does nanofat hair restoration work?
Research shows that balding typically occurs when the stem cells around the scalp lose their ability to convert to progenitor cells. As a result, follicle re-growth and recycling process becomes stunted. With the nanofat hair restoration process, it is possible to place these regenerative cells in targeted areas to restart a healthy hair cycling and growth process.
Nanofat injectable treatment can be performed in less than one hour, involving no incisions or general anesthesia. Once the affected areas of the scalp receive the purified nanofat, it will boost the ability to the stem cells to repair and reactivate the damaged hair follicles, resulting in a new growth of fuller, thicker hair.
Who should choose Nanofat treatment?
Any man or woman who is struggling with hair loss or thinning hair, and wants to restore hair growth and prevent additional hair shedding may choose nanofat hair restoration. It is also an option for patients who have previously undergone hair transplantation and want to improve their hair density without surgery.
Patients seeking to eliminate dependence on Rogaine or Propecia medications may also be candidates for nanofat hair restoration. It is important to understand that this procedure is only effective in restoring damaged, worn out, or miniaturized hair follicles that are still alive, but it cannot regenerate dead hair follicles.
Longevity of Results
Although the longevity and extent of hair re-growth results can vary between two patients, but in most cases, the patient can expect to enjoy the new hair growth for years. Patients often achieve the best results with just one nanofat treatment session, but some patients with more severe hair loss may need an additional treatment in 1 to 2 years to build further on the initial hair restoration.
