Reverse hair loss and the appearance of aging with regenerative medicine.
Stem cell and cellular therapies have shown promising results for both male and female hair loss. By injecting stem cells into the hair follicles, the hair follicle bulb may be repaired and cells may be "woken up" to start producing hair again. Dr Lekkos uses a combination of cellular therapies including Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) to extract stem cells from patients' own bodies. When injected into the hair follicles, these stem cells encourage natural hair growth.
Anti-Aging Skin Care
Microneedling therapy is a non-invasive way to get smoother, younger looking skin by activating the body's natural healing mechanisms to produce collagen and elastin. Dr. Lekkos combines microneedling techniques with the power of stem cells to revitalize the skin cells and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines, age spots, pores, sun damage and acne scars. The result is fresh, tight and more uniform skin without the side effects or recovery time as lasers or cosmetic surgery.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelets are blood cells that contain growth factors and proteins vital to the healing of injuries. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is obtained by taking a blood sample from the patient and purifying it through a centrifuge so that only these important growth factors and proteins remain. The PRP is then injected into the scalp, where it helps to stimulate hair growth and healing.
Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF)
Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) is a form of stem cell therapy where the stem cells used are harvested from the patient's own adipose tissue via a mini liposuction under local anesthesia and then injected into the afflicted area to encourage growth and healing. Because adipose tissue is one of the most concentrated sources of quality stem cells in the body, using these cells yields the best results clinically. In the case of hair restoration, the stem cells may be used to "wake up" and repair dormant hair follicles to start producing hair again.
MD Needle Pen
The MD Needle Pen is a safe and effective microneedling tool that can be used to improve texture and color, as well as reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines, age spots, sun damage, pores and acne scars. It contains tiny needles that gently puncture the skin to stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin. Unlike laser treatments, chemical peels or dermabrasion, microneedling is minimally invasive and does not damage or burn the skin.
