Auragraft® is the latest FUE hair transplant technology. Brought to you first at Omni Aesthetics!
What Are My Options?
There are many reasons why people suffer from hair loss. Treatment can involve simple nutritional support and low level light therapy that can be performed at home or it can require cutting edge technology involving injections of regenerative biological treatments. In more advanced cases hair transplantation can be a long term solution with excellent results. As with all of our treatments at Omni Aesthetics, we pride ourselves in offering the most innovative and successful treatments available. We give you all the options so that you can be confident that you are receiving the perfect therapy customized just for you.
Nutrafol® supplements: Proven to support hair growth.
Low level laser and LED light treatments: Clinically proven to stimulate hair growth.
PRP and Biological injections: The most cutting edge way to regenerate your existing hair follicles.
High Definition FUE hair transplantation: The newest technique for hair transplantation with no stripping and fast recovery.
Low Level Laser and LED treatments
It sounds like science fiction, but there are now several studies that show clinical proof that low level laser and LED light at certain wave lengths can stimulate hair growth. This treatment requires some discipline because it requires coming in to the office three times per week for six weeks then once a week for another 16 weeks with periodic maintenance treatments after that. For those who would prefer to do it at home, we have a take home device that can double as a skin rejuvenation mask. There is virtually no known risk other than possible eye damage if you stare into the light too long.
We recommend the Nutrafol line to promote hair growth because this is a physician formulated drug free botanical product with clinical trials that show up to 80% improvement. You can purchase it in our office or order it on line.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP is a quick in-office procedure that takes the growth factors from the platelets that are in your blood and concentrates them into the hair follicles. These growth factors stimulate the stem cells around the weak hair follicles to start growing hair again. RPP will not work for men who have total hair loss with no follicles to regenerate, but it is a great treatment for men and women who are experiencing rapidly thinning hair. There are many different ways to prepare the PRP. We use a protocol that can concentrate up to 24 times the concentration of platelets whereas most clinics offering PRP use only a 2x concentration. We can even combine PRP therapy with other effective treatments to get more significant and consistent results.
High Definition Hair Transplantation
Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE has revolutionized the way we perform hair transplantation. FUE is currently the gold standard for hair replacement. Gone are the days when strips of scalp had to be surgically removed to harvest plugs of hair. We can now harvest individual units of hair containing one to four hair follicles leaving only tiny holes that heal up rapidly without leaving a visible scar. The units of hair follicles can then be harvested from areas of dense hair growth like the back of the head and implanted where there is significant hair loss like on the crown and hair line. The results are very natural looking and can be permanent. At Omni aesthetics, the procedure is performed under high definition visualization so that the harvesting and implantation is very precise. For the right candidate, this is the definitive treatment for long term results.
Regenerative Hair Therapy
The young lady below had developed alopecia totalis with loss of almost all of the hair on her head. She had received all the conventional medical therapies including corticosteroids and immunosuppressive drugs. Her condition did not improve after several years of frustration she was referred to us by her esthetician because she wanted to try "stem cells."
Stem cells teatments are very controversial because the FDA still considers these as either "experimental" or they want to classify it as a drug, in which case they cannot be harvested in an office setting.
We offer regenerative treatments including Platelet Rich Plasma which is acquired from your own blood and releases growth factors that attract your own stem cells. We also offer injection of autologous fat which may contain mesenchymal cells that act like stem cells and also send signals to attract your own stem cells. We can also use donated tissue from amniotic membrane, umbilical cord or cell secretions called exosomes. These are all powerful cellular signaling compounds that are used in regenerative medicine for treating pain from arthritis, rejuvenating skin and for growing hair.
Because of the severity of her condition and her desire to get better as quickly as possible, we decided to treat her with multiple modalities that we have available. Her first treatment was a PRP injection. A month later, we treated her with cells extracted from her own fat. The following month we treated her with PRP and amniotic membrane allograft. As seen in the photographs below, the patient's hair started growing back. The final picture where she has enough hair to tie a pony tail was taken one year after her first treatment.
This is one case and is not a controlled study. Her medical doctors have told her that this was coincidence and that she would have gotten better anyway. At this time we cannot make any claims that her remarkable recovery was directly related to her regenerative treatments, but we see enough of these kind of responses to feel confident in offering the treatment to patients who are open to innovative treatments. The risks are very minimal, especially if autologous tissue is used. The reward can be life changing!

Dr. Song is now working with Michael Oaks, the former president of NeoGraft®. to introduce the newest FUE hair transplantation system called AuraGraft®. Dr. Song personally performs the evaluation and design of each hair transplantation procedure. The harvesting and implantation is either performed by Dr. Song or one of the handful of hair transplantation technicians who been hand picked for their years of experience and technical skills. With the popularity of robotic hair transplantation now being performed. many doctors and patients do not realize that an expert human technician can consistently outperform a robot any day, without question. Dr. Song and his staff at Omni Aesthetics understand the science and artistry involved in hair growth and restoration. The team at Omni can help customize the right treatment for each individual.
