Fountain of You MD combines 3 essential hair restoration techniques to combat hair loss

Hair loss can be devastating for everyone. Whether you’re suffering from thinning hair, receding hairline, bald patches on your scalp, or other types of hair loss, we can provide highly personalized treatments to reverse hair loss. Instead of following a cookie-cutter treatment plan, we take a holistic approach to hair regrowth.

Fountain of You MD is led by highly-skilled medical providers who examine your hair quality, discuss your symptoms, determine the root cause of your hair loss, and curate a personalized treatment plan. Depending on your unique condition, the hair restoration plan may include PRP therapy, foam therapy, hair serums, or a combination of all three.

Foam therapy: daily application of latanoprost cream

Foam therapy is an innovative treatment that involves applying latanoprost on the scalp once a day. Studies have shown that latanoprost can convert the thin vellus hair to terminal hair, which makes your hair look denser and more luscious. You have to apply the latanoprost topical cream on your scalp once a day, and there are no major side effects. The latanoprost cream works even better with hair serums, such as minoxidil, ensuring dramatic results.

Latanoprost was initially developed as a prescription medicine for glaucoma, a group of diseases that enhance intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients with open-angle glaucoma. Patients using latanoprost also noticed that the topical treatment affected eyebrow and eyelash growth. Based on that observation, scientists performed further research to understand the medicine’s impact on hair follicles and developed a reliable treatment for hair loss.

Hair serums

Minoxidil, azelaic acid, finasteride, and ketoconazole are topical or oral medications that address androgenetic alopecia, the most common type of genetic hair loss. The active ingredients in these hair serums work collectively to reduce the effects of testosterone on your hair quality, essentially blocking the mechanisms that induce hair loss. The medical provider will examine your scalp, discuss your goals, and recommend the ideal combination of hair serums to activate your dormant hair follicles.

Minoxidil

Minoxidil is one of the most popular hair serums for hair regeneration. This hair serum reduces the time between the resting phase of hair growth and the active growth phase, thus encouraging new hairs to grow soon after the previous cycle is complete. The hair follicles in the telogen phase shed faster and are replaced by thicker and denser hair follicles, making your hair look fuller and more luscious.

Azelaic Acid

Azelaic acid is a naturally-occurring substance that acts as an inhibitor of the 5-alpha reductase enzyme. In most cases, hair loss occurs when testosterone binds with the 5-alpha reductase enzyme, leading to the formation of DHT, which can lead to hair loss. The azelaic acid hair serum inhibits the 5-alpha reductase enzyme and prevents the formation of DHT, which facilitates hair growth.

Finasteride

Finasteride is yet another 5-alpha reductase inhibitor that works in a similar way as azelaic acid. It’s FDA approved for the treatment of mild to moderate male pattern baldness in the mid-scalp region in men. When you take finasteride medication, it inhibits the 5-alpha reductase enzyme and prevents the formation of DHT, thereby activating dormant hair follicles. Research has shown that finasteride works even better with minoxidil.

Ketoconazole

Ketoconazole is an antifungal medicine that’s also used in the treatment of hair loss. Male pattern baldness occurs because of the DHT hormone, which is produced when testosterone interacts with the 5-alpha reductase enzyme. Research has shown that Ketoconazole medicine can increase the diameter of the hair shaft and inhibit the 5-alpha reductase enzyme, which, in turn, helps you achieve thicker hair.

PRP hair restoration: an autologous treatment for hair loss

PRP hair restoration is a simple, in-office autologous treatment that involves using components derived from your body to stimulate hair regrowth. The cosmetic provider draws a small sample of your blood, isolates the platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and injects it into targeted areas on the scalp. The PRP contains special growth factors that can activate dormant hair follicles and help you achieve dense and luscious hair. This treatment is completely safe because it’s based on components derived from your body, so there are no risks of infections or allergies.

PRP activates the dormant hair follicles in your scalp

The human blood contains multiple components, including red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. The platelets contain a high concentration of growth factors and other nutrients that are essential for natural healing and growth. When you’re injured, for example, the growth factors in your blood stimulate blood clot formation to heal the wounds. Similarly, the growth factors can also promote natural healing and regeneration in other parts of the body.

PRP hair restoration involves harvesting growth factors through platelet-rich plasmas and concentrating their healing capabilities on the scalp. When PRP is injected into the scalp, the growth factors improve blood flow to the scalp, facilitate the formation of new blood vessels, and deliver essential nutrients to the scalp. The dormant hair follicles gradually wake up and start producing new hairs, leading to dense and luscious hair.

PRP hair restoration can correct the following:

  • Male pattern baldness
  • Female pattern baldness
  • Thinning hair
  • Receding hairline
  • Bald patches on the scalp
  • General hair loss

Your 3-step PRP hair restoration journey

PRP hair restoration is a simple, 3-step process that starts after a thorough consultation. Our medical providers will examine your scalp, discuss your goals and symptoms, understand the root cause of hair loss, and curate the ideal treatment plan for you. The PRP hair restoration journey is simple and painless, and it usually concludes within 30 to 60 minutes.

Step 1: Harvest
The cosmetic provider draws a small blood sample from your arm via a syringe.

Step 2: Purify
Your blood sample is spun in a centrifuge to isolate the golden-colored PRP.

Step 3: Inject
The serum is carefully injected into targeted areas on your scalp.

Minimal post-treatment side effects

PRP hair restoration is a painless procedure that doesn’t involve major side effects. You may experience mild redness, swelling, tenderness, irritation, itching, and bruising around the injection points. But these side effects are common for all injectable treatments, and they usually dissipate in a few days. There is no risk of an infection or allergic reaction because the treatment is based on natural components derived from your body.

No downtime or recovery period

PRP hair restoration doesn’t involve any downtime or extended recovery period. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately after your treatment. While you should avoid strenuous physical activities for a day or two, there are no major activity limitations. You can even start showering immediately after the treatment.

Improve your hair volume over several months

PRP hair restoration gradually improves your hair volume. The growth factors will stimulate increased blood circulation to the scalp, which will activate your dormant hair follicles, encouraging them to grow new hair. Most patients need 3 or more PRP sessions once a month for optimal results.

Combine PRP therapy, foam therapy, and hair serums for superior and long-lasting results

Each individual experiences hair loss for different reasons and in different ways. Our medical providers understand the specific root cause of your hair loss, discuss your goals, review your medical history, and curate a personalized hair regrowth treatment plan for you. Your treatment may include PRP therapy for natural hair regeneration, foam therapy for improvements in hair density, hair serums to activate dormant hair follicles or a combination of all three. We reverse hair loss, help you achieve denser hair, and ensure you maintain the results.
