New York hair restoration specialist Amiya Prasad, MD reviews how he minimizes the appearance of hair transplant scarring, and how scar healing evolved into a non-surgical treatment that can avoid surgical transplants altogether for most patients and bypass scars altogether:

0:30 – Dr. Prasad describes the challenges of minimizing hair transplant scars prior to the advent of non-surgical hair loss treatment

0:58 – Dr. Prasad’s training and credentials, and his experience in hair transplant surgery, primarily focused on follicular unit transplantation (FUT) surgery

1:26 – Why FUTs are commonly known as “strip surgery”

1:38 – How Dr. Prasad uses his experience as a cosmetic surgeon for an almost imperceptible donor area scar

1:50 – How Dr. Prasad used extracellular by ACell for advanced healing of the donor area scar

2:02 – How Dr. Prasad uses extracellular matrix for healing facelift incisions, and for reconstructive surgery

2:14 – How extracellular matrix helps the strip incision heal better, and faster

2:20 – How extracellular matrix can also help healing of hair grafts to increase graft survival

2:47 – How extracellular matrix for hair graft healing led to the discovery of non-surgical hair restoration when native hair outside of the graft area grew thicker

3:07 – How follicular unit extraction (FUE) gained popularity because of the undesirable strip scar

3:27 – How obvious strip scars are due to aggressive graft harvesting, skin shortage, and skin tension

3:43 – How people who shouldn’t have been candidates for hair transplant can also suffer from poor donor area healing

3:53 – How straight and wavy hair can hide the strip scar better, but short hairstyles can help hide it, making FUEs more in demand

4:12 – How FUE surgery is marketed as “scarless” but actually involves smaller scars over a wider area of scalp

4:40 – How FUEs get some hair grafts outside of the permanent zone resistant to hair thinning

4:43 – How FUEs can result in more scar tissue than FUTs

5:00 – How up to 30% of FUE grafts are transected or damaged at the root, making graft survival rate lower than FUT

5:20 – Why hair transplant is often assumed as the best option to treat pattern hair loss, but often isn’t

5:40 – Why most people seeking hair transplants have thinning hair, but hair transplants don’t treat thinning hair

6:10 – How the TrichoStem Hair Regeneration non-surgical treatment can treat thinning hair, with better results than hair transplant

6:30 – How the density of thinning hair is much better than density created by a hair transplant

7:00 – How thickening thinning hair non-surgically can result in better scalp coverage than a hair transplant

7:11 – Dr. Prasad’s work with extracellular matrix and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to thicken thinning hair in his patients

7:36 – How TrichoStem Hair Regeneration in the right patient can provide more scalp coverage than two hair transplants surgeries

8:05 – How trauma of hair transplant surgery can cause permanent loss of native hair, called collateral loss

8:38 – How rapid hair loss progression cannot be matched by hair transplant surgery

8:49 – How each hair transplant surgery yields less hair grafts than the previous procedure, but produces more scars

9:00 – How multiple hair transplants can still result in little hair coverage

9:10 – How non-surgical treatment has become the first line of treatment for thinning hair

9:21 – How Dr. Prasad believes hair transplant should only be used for people who have completely lost all hair at the hairline

9:43 – How pattern hair loss is not cured, but managed

9:49 – How DHT-blockers and hormone replacement may still be needed to manage hair loss

9:58 – How 1-2 treatments of TrichoStem Hair Regeneration over a 2-year period, with an effective range of benefit from 3-5 years, is less risky, and more economical than a hair transplant

10:24 – How hair loss cases are classified to customize the TrichoStem Hair Regeneration treatment for individual patients

10:49 – How hair transplant should be a last option after TrichoStem Hair Regeneration, and 99% of its patients don’t end up having a surgical hair transplant

11:32 – How previous hair transplant patients can still benefit from TrichoStem Hair Regeneration, and avoid further transplant
