Hair loss is a widespread concern affecting up to 56 million Americans across their lifetime. Springs Aesthetics offers hair restoration for men and women in Colorado Springs, South Denver, Castle Rock, and other areas of Colorado.
What is Hair Restoration?
Hair restoration for men and women includes treatments to slow hair loss and improve the viability of new hairs. Both men and women suffer hair damage and loss from: environmental damage, hormone/age related causes; medications, stress; damage from blow-drying, over styling, products; and poor nutrition. This can lead to excess shedding and hair breakage.

We are proud to announce the Springs Aesthetics Hair Club 1-year program. Our hair-club includes:
- Three scalp PRP treatments a month apart
- A touch-up PRP at six months
- The iGrow hair-regrowth helmet
- 12 months of the Viviscal™ Professional hair supplements
How is Hair Restoration Performed?
The at-home use of the low laser hair restoration helmets is completely painless, and can help thicken current hair sizes as well as stimulate new growth. Some patients with just thin-caliber hair (no actual hair loss) have used the laser hair restoration helmets just to have thicker quality hair.
Typically, in both men and women, a 35 percent improvement of the hair is seen with the helmet use alone at about three to four months, with results improving out to six months. For best results, the iGrow helmet should be worn 20 minutes three to four times weekly. 100 percent of patients in studies have shown improvement in their hair using the iGrow helmet.
Viviscal™ hair restoration supplements offered at Springs Aesthetics are professional strength, and have no side effects. They are safe for both men and women as long as they have no shellfish allergy or sensitivity. It has multiple helpful ingredients essential to hair growth to include biotin, apple extract, vitamin C, and a proprietary marine complex call AminoMar® that helps hair follicle health and the telagen phase of hair growth.
In studies, patients have shown statistically significant growth in the number of hairs of 80 percent or better at six months. At three months, increases in the number of terminal hairs has ranged from a 57-111 percent improvement. Viviscal™ Professional is only available through salons, spas, and medical offices. Viviscal™ Professional is used and endorsed by many celebrities, including Gwyneth Paltrow.
Springs Aesthetics also offers PRP hair restoration that relies on growth factors in your blood to improve hair growth.
Do PRP Scalp Injections Hurt & Do They Work?
They work in most patients with androgenic hair loss especially if treatments are done before hair loss has become extensive. The injections can be slightly uncomfortable but can be improved with a hand-held zimmer cooling device, Pro-Nox nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”), and topical anesthetic. These injections, however, for most patients not very uncomfortable as the proper injection plane is less dense than the other scalp tissue allowing easy injection and spread to areas far from the actual injection sites.
What Should I Expect from Hair Restoration Treatments?
Results can’t be guaranteed, and vary depending upon the protocol followed and other patient variables. Numerous published scientific studies have shown PRP for hair growth works and is a proven solution.
Hair restoration is best obtained for genetically-related androgenic hair loss using a multi-faceted program, which includes:
- PRP scalp injections
- Low-level (cold) laser light helmet wear for about 20 mins two to four times a week
- Viviscal™ Professional strength hair supplements
- Over-the-counter Topical minoxidil (like Rogaine®)
- Use of (in some cases) orally prescribed medications (Spirinolactone or Finasteride in men and post-menopausal women) to further promote hair regrowth
Best results are seen by following the recommended multi-modality approach.
