Hair Restoration Q & A

What is hair restoration?

Hair restoration at Rejuvenation Center for Mind and Body is a treatment that stimulates hair follicle regrowth after you experience thinning hair. Dr. Festa uses microneedling, a cosmetic procedure that increases collagen production naturally within your scalp.


How does microneedling for hair restoration work?

Microneedling uses a skin roller containing tiny needles to cause microtears, or wounds, in the skin to regenerate healthy hair follicles. Microneedling can result in new hair growth, thicker hair, and hair restoration without surgery or downtime. 

Dr. Festa can apply platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from your blood or stem cells to the scalp with microneedling, to enhance cell regeneration and hair restoration.


What happens during hair restoration?

Prior to hair restoration at Rejuvenation Center for Mind and Body, Dr. Festa and his aesthetic team review your medical history and examine your scalp in areas of thinning hair to let you know if hair restoration is the right treatment for you.

If it is, you sit in a comfortable chair and relax. They can numb your scalp to make the procedure feel comfortable. Dr. Festa uses a handheld device with tiny needles attached to it. He slowly moves it across your scalp in areas of thinning hair to create controlled, tiny microtears in the skin. 

He might apply PRP or stem cells to the treatment area with microneedling. The length of time your procedure lasts might be 30-60 minutes, depending on the areas treated.


What should I expect after hair restoration?

After hair restoration at Rejuvenation Center for Mind and Body, Dr. Festa can rub a soothing balm on your scalp to alleviate inflammation. You can also apply ice to the area if you’d like. Keep the treatment area clean and protect your scalp from the sun.

Over time as your scalp produces new collagen, you should notice hair regrowth and fuller, thicker hair. Dr. Festa and this team might recommend a series of microneedling hair restoration treatments, or PRP or stem cell injections, to help you achieve the best possible results.
