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. Whether it is for a receding hairline, a balding area, a lack of fullness and volume, or thinning or sparse hair overall, then the stem cells 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?
Stem Cells can help restore:
- Hair Follicles
- Receding Hairlines
- Bald Spots

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. I was able to have a few of my concerns addressed right away at my first visit! I will definitely continue to see Dr. Amir, and refer my friends!
Dr. Amir is by far the best dermatologist you could ask for! The care and attention to detail given by this practitioner is simply superb. I would recommend this practice to absolutely anyone looking for the best. Amazing. Amazing. Amazing. Thank you Dr. Amir!
