The Hair Restoration Journey Of Igor
Igor is one of our technicians here at the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic, and he is a big part of our hair transplant team. Igor also suffers with advanced hair loss. So, needless to say, we decided to help Igor fix this hair loss issue.
Igor is a class 6 on the Norwood Scale and has been dealing with his hair loss by doing what most men do in this situation: maintaining a shaved hair style. But after a few months, he will no longer have to worry about this issue so much.
The first that we did to help Igor restore his hair is to give him a PRP treatment. PRP (platelet-rich plasma therapy) is a very effective, proven way of treating hair loss. It works by drawing your blood the same way that you would if you were donating blood or going for blood work. Once the test tube has been filled with blood, it is spun in a centrifuge to isolate the platelets from the red and white blood cells. The platelets are the most important part of the blood for this procedure. They contain the growth factors and healing properties that are effective in the treatment of hair loss. This platelet-rich plasma is then injected back into the scalp in the areas of hair loss. After 3 to 6 months, the patient will start to see some great results. We will, of course, be tracking Igor’s results, and we’ll post the before and after photos when they are ready.
We also made sure to provide him with the aftercare products. The aftercare products consist of the scalp cream to help keep the donor area moist and aid with the healing process as well as a spray-on shampoo that helps with washing the hair without having direct shower pressure hitting the grafts. Direct pressure from the water can cause them to dislodge and therefore not grow.
Igor can now also tell you firsthand about his experience. Hopefully you will get the chance to talk to him if you decide to get a hair transplant with us at the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic.
