TRICHOGRAFT HAIR TRANSPLANT ™ with PRP and Low Level Laser Therapy
The latest state-of-the-art medical hair transplant and restoration procedures for both men and women.
FUT hair transplant is popular due to higher quality grafting where thousands of grafts may be placed in one session. Hair Transplantation relies on both artistry and skill. Several key elements are necessary to achieve a satisfactory result. The TrichoGraft method uses three modalities to achieve maximum hair regrowth.
1. Top Benefits of the TrichGraft Hair Transplant:
• Replicates natural growth
• Optimal hair thickness/density
• Preserved hair follicle integrity
• Protective tissue surrounding hair follicle remains intact
• Highest rate of graft “take”
• Even hair distribution
• Permanent, natural results
The most important of these key elements are the following:
• Proper Strip extraction and closing of the donor area
• Correct follicular unit dissection
• Correct graft hydration and storage
• Recipient site creation using correct angulation, direction and pattern
• Creation of a natural hairline design
• Careful placement of grafts during the surgery with the proper technique to avoid their damage
• Proper hair transplant post-surgery care
2. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) therapy is new and exciting concept of regenerative medicine to stimulate natural hair growth when use in hair transplantation. The primary purpose of using PRP in hair restoration is to stimulate inactive or newly implanted hair follicles into an active growth phase as PRP contains many growth factors essential for hair growth such as Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF) and Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF). This service has an average fee of $1,500 if it was done as a separate hair loss treatment. We include this procedure complementary in our hair transplant surgery to maximize the survivability of hair grafts and to encourage faster regrowth.
Top Benefits of PRP with TrichoGraft Hair Transplant
1. The plasma is developed from the patient’s own blood. This eliminates risks associated with donor genetic materials such as allergies, hypersensitivity, and other adverse reactions. Many patients are also drawn to the natural qualities of using elements of their own body rather than chemicals or donated cells.
2. When used in conjunction with a hair transplant, it has also been shown to improve success rates by stimulating the transplanted hair follicles to grow and develop as expected. The plasma also helped with the healing of the tissue removed during the surgery.
3. People who have thinning hair, and those with androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness) hair loss at the top of the scalp and a receding hairline particularly along the temples), women with male pattern alopecia can all benefit from it.
3. Post-Operative Care with Low Level Laser Therapy
Following hair transplantation, Trichological Associates offers a complimentary medical grade Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) home device. We find that these treatments accelerate the healing process, as well as the growth of newly transplanted hair. Gentle on the recently transplanted hair, and non-surgical, LLLT uses red near infrared wavelengths to facilitate hair growth for individuals who have undergone any hair restoration procedure. This non-invasive, painless therapy stimulates blood flow and oxygen to the scalp, promoting a healthier scalp and contributing to the healing process.
Top Benefits of Low Level Laser Therapy after TrichoGraft Hair Transplant
1. Low level laser therapy stimulates the scalp and hair follicles, and has been demonstrated to increase blood supply around the hair follicles by over 50% after initial treatment.
2. Research studies have also shown that it has the ability to stop the progression of hair loss in over 80 percent of hair loss treatment patients.
3. For post-operative hair transplant surgery patients, laser hair therapy has demonstrated the ability to help newly transplanted hair thrive and nurture the healing process.

Q & A
Q: Who is a good candidate for Hair Transplantation?
A: Almost anyone with hair loss is a candidate for hair transplantation. However, a patient’s expectations and objectives must be realistic. The single most important factor to consider is how much hair a patient will lose at a later age. With this in mind, the doctor can plan the most natural looking hairline and shape – one that will result in the most undetectable and natural hairstyle.
Q: Is there an ideal age to begin Hair Transplantation?
A: There really is no such thing as an ideal age. Current data show that early hair transplantation is easier to conceal and allows the patient to preserve the appearance of a full and natural head of hair. Our goal is to educate and help patients achieve the best possible outcome.
Q: How long after my hair transplant will I begin to see hair growth?
A: Generally, the hair begins to grow within 3-5 months after the procedure and the number of new hairs will continue to increase for the next 8-9 months with a proper hair hygiene program.
Q: What kind of postoperative care do you provide?
A: Trichological Associates postoperative care with low level laser therapy to alleviate inflammation that can occur to the scalp. In addition, our combination therapy approach allows patients to maximize their results. A follow-up hair loss prevention treatment program is prescribed to promote quicker and healthier hair growth. To ensure that our patients understand what to expect, we discuss home care with each individual. Our doctor personally checks on each patient on the evening of the operation.
Q: How soon can I go back to work after the procedure?
A: Generally, you can return to work within a day or two following your procedure depending on your type of work and comfort level. However, any strenuous exercising or lifting should not be attempted for the first 2 weeks after the procedure.
