Who Is A Good Candidate for Hair Loss Treatment?
Ideal candidates for the Stone Oak Dermatology hair loss treatment are those who have good hair density. It’s important that patients have healthy scalps before beginning treatment. This will be determined by Dr. Banta, who will give a full in-depth explanation regarding your eligibility for the procedure during your initial consultation.
Our hair restoration procedure is not recommended for people with chronic health issues such as heart disease, kidney failure, diabetes, or any other health conditions that may make recovery difficult. Candidates who can maintain realistic expectations will look throughout their hair restoration journey will benefit the most from their results.
How Long Will the Hair Restoration Procedure Take?
Dr. Banta prioritizes precision, accuracy, and safety during each procedure. With this in mind, most hair restoration procedures can take on average, between four to eight hours, depending on the amount of hair that needs to be restored and the patient’s goals.
Are There Any Risks with the Hair Restoration Procedure?
While this procedure is completely safe, there are a few risks that may arise as complications from hair restoration that patients should know about. These risks can include the following:
- Scalp pain
- Injury to blood vessels
- Injury to nerves
What Is Recovery Like?
Dr. Banta will provide each hair restoration candidate with precise aftercare instructions. When followed properly, many complications and risks can be avoided completely during the healing process. Instructions may vary depending on the patient’s needs and goals, but generally, patients should avoid exposing the hair to water for the first few days after treatment.
Side effects will subside ten days after your procedure. In about eight to ten weeks, patients will begin to feel fully healed with no discomfort at all.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Your hair will begin growing soon after your procedure. However, results can take up to six months to grow and appear fully natural. After this time, patients can expect continued hair growth for a lifetime!
