"The fact that Dr. Kridel only does faces makes him an expert in his field. Everything about my procedure was top notch. I was well prepared for my surgery and had realistic expectations due to the computer imaging. It's fun to see what you are going to look like. My procedure was painless and I love the way I look. I am 53 and had a lower face lift. Now, I look like I am in my early forties. Dr. Kridel's claim-to-fame is that you do not look overdone; I look very natural. His staff is also courteous and helpful. And the follow-up care I am receiving is also wonderful. How many doctors send you flowers?If you are considering facial plastic surgery he should be your only choice."- Anonymous / Vitals / Mar 15, 2016

While men tend to experience widespread hair loss, women tend to have thinning hair and hair loss throughout the head. Because hair loss in women is more diffuse and tends to center on the top of their scalp, nonsurgical treatments can be very helpful. NeoLTS light hair restoration treatments have been shown to improve hair growth and thickness. This can be done alone or in combination with Hair Medica products to optimize hair growth. Also, platelet-rich-plasma injections stimulate the hair follicles to grow thicker, healthier hairs. These are simple, in-office injections and can be repeated for best results.
NeoLTS Light Therapy
The NeoLTS is a painless, relaxing light treatment that safely stimulates hair growth on all skin and hair types. The light stimulates dormant hair follicles into becoming active so new hair is grown, while improving the health and thickness of existing hair follicles. The NeoLTS can be used in combination with the Hair Medica System and/or platelet rich plasma injections to boost hair growth without surgery. The NeoLTS light therapy treatment also works well as a complement to the NeoGraft hair transplant for enhanced hair growth. There is no downtime or skin changes, so you can have a NeoLTS treatment over your lunch hour and no one will know.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
We can use your own healing abilities to stimulate hair growth. The growth factors in your blood are isolated and injected into the scalp in a series of injections. These growth factors help “wake up” your hair follicles and encourage them to grow again. This procedure is relatively quick, can be done in the office and has minimal downtime.
Hair Medica Products
Hair Medica products use a hormone-free, scientific approach to promote hair growth. Hair Medica creates a supportive environment to promote your own body’s ability to grow hair. Hair Medica uses natural ingredients to stimulate the growth of dormant hair follicles, increase the thickness of existing hairs, and maintain the health of existing hair. Hair Medica does not have unwanted side effects, like sexual problems or facial hair growth in women, which can be caused by other hair growth medications.
