Hair Restoration Q&A
What is hair loss?
Androgenetic or pattern hair loss affects 70% of men ( Male pattern hair loss) and 40% of women ( Female Pattern Hair loss) and can start as early as a person’s teens, with risk increasing with age.
Hair loss can result in tremendous stress and loss of confidence and has been a very difficult area to conquer in medicine. The treatment options include hair transplants that are cumbersome, painful and expensive. There aren’t many other options.
Lotions and pills don’t work, and expensive hair pieces don’t look very natural. It is often an area that can cause frustration and embarrassment.
Dr. Amir has found that stem cell treatments are one of the few hair restoration approaches that can work for many patients. Whether it is for a receding hairline, a balding area, a lack of fullness and volume, or thinning or sparse hair overall, stem cell hair restoration might be just the right procedure for you.
What causes Hair loss?
Miniaturization of the hair follicle is the clinical hallmark of balding. Certain studies have established that stem cells residing in the scalp remain at persistent numbers, but the conversion of stem cells to the progenitor cells required for follicle stimulation and cycling is reduced in balding patients.
Efforts to assist in this regeneration of the hair follicle may induce a more robust and stronger recycling of the hair follicle. Once these stem cells are administered, they have the ability to re-activate dormant follicles, forming new cells of mesenchymal origin.
How do the stem cell treatments work?
The stem cell procedure provides a targeted placement of these regenerative cells, non-surgically aiding in the regeneration of follicles during hair growth cycles. The procedure is performed either in the clinician’s office or in an outpatient facility, using local anesthesia and completed in an hour or less.
Results are typically seen during the next cycle of hair growth and improve over time with each hair growth cycle.
Stem Cells can help restore:
- Hair Follicles
- Receding Hairlines
- Bald Spots
Am I a good candidate?
Patients suffering from male or female pattern hair loss are candidates for hair restoration treatment. Ideal candidates do not suffer from any bleeding-related health issues. Patients who are reluctant to use lotion or pills for their hair loss are suitable candidates for our hair restoration treatment.
Stem cell hair restoration treatment is suitable for patients who were unable to achieve satisfactory results from other hair loss treatments. Good candidates have realistic expectations and are willing to be patient while their results continue to improve over time.
What should I expect during a consultation?
During your visit, we will listen to your concerns regarding your hair loss condition. Tell us about the hair loss treatments you have tried. We will examine the extent of your hair loss and evaluate your medical records.
We will then create a hair restoration treatment plan, which we will explain in detail. This will include a discussion of preparation, the treatment process, and aftercare. All questions will be addressed. The schedule of your hair restoration treatment will be set according to your convenience.
What is aftercare like?
The patient can go home immediately after treatment. This treatment will require little to no recovery. Minor pain and discomfort may be experienced during the first week after the treatment session. Aftercare instructions will be provided during the consultation and must be followed as closely as possible.
When should I expect to see results?
For most patients, a noticeable increase in hair density can be observed after 23 weeks. The results may vary depending on the degree of hair loss.
How Much Does Hair Restoration Cost?
The price of hair restoration is based on the size of the treatment area and other factors which will be discussed during your consultation. After preparing your unique treatment plan, Dr. Amir will provide complete pricing details.

Obsessed with this place. Everyone is so nice and accommodating. Dr Amir is amazing! His attention to detail is incredible. I’ve had fillers done in the past but this is the first time I had anyone “map at my face” so to speak in order to place the injections in the proper area. Couldn’t be happier with the results and I’m looking forward to going back for Botox in and few weeks! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Excellent experience here! Staff is very nice and personable, Dr. Amir has a wonderful bedside manner. He takes the time to educate you in your concerns and walk you through the process.
