Hair loss or excessive thinning can be an issue for both men and women. As a result, hair restoration treatments have risen in popularity, offering solutions to these problems. With the right treatment, you can see improved hair growth and thickness, possibly even reversing the signs of hair loss.
Average Cost of Hair Restoration
Working out the average cost of hair restoration begins with choosing the specific treatment option. Hair transplants are perhaps the most common, and they’re also the most expensive option. Healthline quotes the average cost of a hair transplant to be between $4,000 to $15,000*.
Another hair restoration option is PRP therapy for hair loss. It’s believed that injecting platelet-rich plasma into your scalp can naturally encourage hair growth. Again, Healthline has provided estimates for the average cost of this treatment, sitting at between $1,500 – $3,500*.
Lastly, there is HydraFacial Keravive, which is a scalp treatment for healthier hair. According to Glamour, the cost of this treatment begins at around $500* but this number can rise depending on location and provider.

Types of Hair Restoration
All three of the options mentioned above are available at El Paso Cosmetic Surgery. You have the freedom to decide which treatment to choose based on your hair restoration goals!
PRP for Hair Loss
PRP is a high concentration of platelets, stem cells, and growth factors. When injected into your scalp, it can encourage hair follicles to grow, leading to thicker hair in thinned-out areas. The PRP is extracted from the patient, then re-injected – so you don’t have to worry about any harmful chemical solutions or allergic reactions. It is most effective for candidates in the early stages of thinning hair or hair loss.
This hair restoration treatment follows a three-step process to treat a dry scalp and encourage hair growth. It begins by cleansing and exfoliating the scalp, then hydrating and nourishing it with a peptide solution, before finally using a take-home spray to extend and enhance the effects. Think of it as a very extensive shampooing solution that removes dead skin, unclogs follicles, and improves scalp health. Thus, hair can grow better and thicker.
NeoGraft® Hair Transplant
The NeoGraft® hair transplant is a Follicular-Unit Extraction (FUE) transplant that’s ideal for male-patterned baldness. It can also be used for female hair loss, and the treatment involves extracting follicles from a donor area. This is usually the back of the head, implanting the follicles in balding areas. When the implanted follicles have been in the new area for a few months, they shed and start to regrow. In essence, you witness new hair growth in areas where there wasn’t any before. The results can vary from patient to patient, but they can last forever and reverse the signs of balding.
Benefits of Hair Restoration
Hair loss or balding is a big cause of concern for both men and women. It can knock your confidence, as well as make you feel self-conscious. With the right hair restoration treatment, you can delay or reverse hair loss, leaving you with a full head of hair for longer. Also, it can make your hair healthier and thicker, making it appear much nicer.
