Men and women who are experiencing hair loss can benefit from the hair restoration treatments we offer at our Barrington, IL plastic surgery practice. Dr. Renee Burke offers both hair transplants using NeoGraft® and hair restoration with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to help improve the appearance of your hair and minimize the effects of hair loss. Both treatments are performed in the comfort of our office, allowing you a safe, private treatment experience with natural looking results.
Causes of Hair Loss
There are many causes for hair loss in men and women, and the reasons for hair loss differs for both sexes. In men, “male pattern baldness” is caused by hereditary conditions and often starts with thinning hair on the top and sides of the head then follows an established pattern. In women, hair loss can be caused by genetic conditions, hormonal changes, or medication, diseases, or other external factors.
No matter the cause of your hair loss, Dr. Burke offers solutions to help restore your hair and enable you to gain confidence and feel like yourself again. Dr. Burke meets with each patient to discuss their individual needs and determine a plan to help meet your goals.
NeoGraft® Hair Transplant
NeoGraft is an ideal treatment for men with male pattern baldness who have reached a point of stability in their hair loss. For women, NeoGraft can be used to fill in thin spots on the crown of the head or restore thinning eyebrows.
During a hair transplant procedure, hair follicles are taken from the dense-growing hair in the back of the head then transplanted to areas where hair has been lost. Neograft uses a pneumatic device to gently harvest individual hair follicles, which allows you to avoid the unsightly scars of the strip method. This process also preserves hair follicles more effectively than other hair transplant procedures because it is automated, which means that the hair follicles are handled less during the transplant process, increasing the success of the transplant process.
Before the procedure, your scalp is numbed using a local anesthetic. Then, the hair follicles are harvested from the back of the scalp where the hair is most dense. The follicles are then transplanted to the areas of the scalp where hair has been lost. During each session, your technician will typically place 500 to 2,000 grafts. The results of NeoGraft hair transplants are natural looking and improve over time as hair grows in. The process is completed in a few hours and most patients only require 1-2 sessions to achieve their desired results.

PRP Hair Restoration
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is another option for hair restoration for men and women. PRP uses components your own blood to stimulate your scalp and encourage hair regrowth. By triggering your body’s natural healing properties, PRP helps stimulate hair follicles to continue growing terminal (thicker) hairs and slow the thinning process.
First, we draw a small sample of your blood. The blood is then processed in a centrifuge to create a platelet-rich serum. Our nurse injectors then inject PRP or PRF into the areas of the scalp where hair loss is becoming noticeable.
There’s minimal recovery time required, and results of PRP or PRF hair restoration are visible over time. Dr. Burke recommends a series of treatments at regular intervals for best results.
