At SMooth Solutions Medspa, we’re known for removing unwanted hair from the face and body. As Naperville’s go-to experts for laser hair removal and electrolysis, we can help you achieve silky smooth skin year-round. However, we’re also proud to offer a comprehensive hair restoration treatment program for men and women experiencing thinning hair or hair loss. If you’re looking to achieve a thicker, fuller head of hair, we’ve got you covered.
Understanding Hair Loss
Hair loss is a distressing concern that affects about 85% of men and 33% of women at some point in their lives. However, for many, hair loss is more than a cosmetic issue. When you start to lose your hair, it can adversely affect your confidence, self-esteem and overall quality of life, causing you to feel like you’re losing an important part of your identity. Effectively treating hair loss starts with understanding its underlying causes and contributing factors.
One of the key players in hair loss is a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT), an androgen derived from testosterone that’s present in both men and women. If you’re genetically inclined to be more sensitive to it, DHT can shrink your hair follicles through a process called miniaturization, which causes your hair to become thinner and shorter with each growth cycle. Eventually, the hair follicles stop producing hair altogether, resulting in androgenic alopecia, or male and female pattern baldness.
Other contributors to hair loss include stress, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances and certain medical conditions. At SMooth Solutions Medspa, recognizing these factors is the first step in our comprehensive approach to tackling hair loss, guiding our treatment strategies to not only restore hair but also to address its underlying causes for sustainable results.
Hair Restoration That Goes Above & Beyond
At SMooth Solutions Medspa, our comprehensive 6-month hair restoration treatment program addresses both the internal and external causes of hair loss to help you achieve noticeable, sustainable results. We understand that hair loss is a multifaceted issue, so our approach tackles it from every angle. Our program includes in-office treatments, at-home topicals and physician-formulated supplements that work together to rejuvenate your scalp and encourage hair regrowth on a cellular level, setting the stage for a fuller and healthier head of hair.
LaseMD Ultra Treatments
LaseMD Ultra is an important part of our hair restoration program, with four in-office treatments included as part of your treatment plan. This non-ablative, fractional device is powerful yet gentle on the skin, delivering controlled laser energy into the scalp in a grid-like pattern to rejuvenate the hair follicles while leaving the surface layer intact. Each pass of the laser creates tiny microchannels in the deeper dermal layers, kickstarting the body’s natural healing process and stimulating the production of new collagen. It also increases skin permeability for maximum absorption of topicals and serums like DE|RIVE.
DE|RIVE Growth Serum
Alongside LaseMD, you’ll receive four in-office DE|RIVE treatments, plus a 6-month supply for at-home use. DE|RIVE is a serum that harnesses the power of plant-based exosomes derived from stem cells to revitalize the hair follicles and reactivate the cellular pathways essential for hair growth. DE|RIVE is applied using an ultrasound probe that drives the serum into the hair follicles for optimal absorption without pain, needles or downtime. LaseMD also creates microchannels in the scalp that help it penetrate deeply for more effective results. Combined with at-home applications of the DE|RIVE serum twice daily, this two-pronged approach ensures that your scalp receives continuous nourishment day and night.
Nutrafol for Men & Women
Good hair health starts from within, which is why our program includes a 6-month supply of Nutrafol. This physician-formulated supplement is drug-free and packed with extracts and nutrients that target multiple different causes of hair loss. One of the key ingredients, saw palmetto, works by helping to balance your hormones and blocking the activity of DHT, an androgen strongly linked to hair loss in men and women. Because the causes of hair loss may differ between men and women and change over time, Nutrafol is tailored to meet your bio-specific needs throughout all stages of life.
Red Light LED Therapy
To further enhance your hair and scalp health, we include 12 red light LED phototherapy sessions with our Dermalux® Tri-Wave MD device. It works by using wavelengths of light that are clinically proven to energize and rejuvenate targeted cells so they can regenerate even faster. Red light is particularly beneficial for those experiencing thinning hair, as it can penetrate the scalp and optimize cell functioning, which, in turn, stimulates hair growth. It has also been shown to reverse miniaturization, one of the main culprits of hair loss.
How Do Exosomes Compare to PRP?
When it comes to treating hair loss, exosome-based serums and topicals like DE|RIVE offer several unique advantages over another popular treatment option, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. Exosomes are tiny messenger particles called vesicles that contain growth factors, RNAs, peptides, cytokines, valuable lipids and more, giving them the power to restore cells in the body. These work to restore your hair by essentially “turning on” the cellular pathways vital for hair growth.
PRP also contains proteins and growth factors extracted from a patient’s own blood. When injected into the scalp, PRP triggers tissue repair and regeneration to help restore fuller, thicker hair. However, results may be inconsistent because the amount of beneficial growth factors varies based on age and overall health. Exosomes are packed with a potent and consistent dose of regenerative materials that have been shown to outperform PRP in clinical studies. They also don’t require a blood draw to obtain, eliminating the risk of infection.
Why Choose Our 6-Month Hair Restoration Program?
Our program is designed not just to treat hair loss but to provide a sustainable solution for maintaining hair health. By combining laser treatments, topicals, nutritional support and red light LED therapy, we address hair loss from multiple angles. This comprehensive approach tackles various underlying causes of hair thinning and hair loss for more effective results.
