Am I a Good Candidate for Hair Restoration?

Waking up to find clumps of hair on your pillow or watching strands of your hair disappear into the shower drain can be incredibly disheartening. People derive a lot of confidence from having a healthy, attractive head of hair. Trying to hide bald spots with hats and hairpieces is ultimately ineffective, and expensive topical products often produce dissatisfying results.

Hair restoration treatments in Austin have helped people fall in love with their hair again. But not every person experiencing hair loss will be a good candidate for hair restoration treatments. In this blog, we will identify a good candidate for hair restoration at Restora Austin and explain the best treatment options, whether medical or surgical.

What Are Hair Restoration Treatments?

Restora Austin is the most comprehensive hair restoration center in Central Texas. We address various hair issues, including hair thinning and hair loss in men and women. In addition, we offer medical and surgical techniques to help address common and uncommon hair loss issues. These treatments include medication, topical therapies, platelet-rich plasma, microneedling, regenerative therapies using stem cells, and NeoGraft follicular unit transplantation.

Treating hair loss requires a customizable approach. Our renowned doctors will partner with you to find the best solution that targets your specific causes of thinning and balding.

Hair Restoration Treatment Breakdown

Often, we may recommend a combination of the solutions below to yield the best results, carefully crafting a treatment plan to meet your needs.


Some medications have hair loss as an unfortunate side effect. However, you may be able to stop taking these and replace them with an alternative that doesn’t make your hair fall out. We may also recommend medication to treat thinning hair in both men and women.

Topical Therapies

There are countless topical treatments to address hair loss, but these tend not to yield the desired outcome. At Restora Austin, we offer medical-grade topical treatments that increase blood flow in the scalp and help strengthen the follicles. You must use these daily to experience the best benefits. During your consultation with Restora Austin, provide a list of topical treatments you have tried and the results you’ve experienced from them.


PRP, short for platelet-rich plasma, uses the regenerative properties in human plasma to stimulate hair growth. This treatment involves taking a bit of your blood, separating the plasma and growth factors, and injecting them into your scalp. PRP is one of the most promising applications in orthopedics, dentistry, and now cosmetic medicine because it is so safe and successful.


Microneedling treatments involve creating tiny wounds in the scalp to help trigger the body’s natural healing response. Microneedling stimulates the scalp and breaks apart anything that might clog follicles and prevent new hair from growing. Combined with PRP, it can create incredible hair growth results.

Regenerative Therapies With Stem Cells

Stem cell research has advanced in the last decade to help with myriad medical issues. Restora Austin is at the forefront of using stem cells for hair restoration.


NeoGraft is a cutting-edge surgical option that involves extracting individual hair follicles and transplanting them into the balding area. NeoGraft offers lasting results, usually after a single treatment.

Hair Restoration Candidates

Now that you know more about your available solutions, your next step is to consult with a hair restoration specialist to determine whether you’re a good candidate. In general, you are well-qualified if you want to improve your appearance and hair density while boosting your self-image. Ideal patients include people with male-pattern baldness, hair loss due to secondary burns or trauma, lack of facial hair, loss of eyebrows or eyelashes, or anyone wanting to improve the unnatural appearance of older transplants.

Patients with alopecia, female-pattern hair loss, trichotillomania, a chronic untreated medical condition, and those with unrealistic expectations about their results may not be suitable for hair restoration treatments, but should first seek medical advice.
