Non-Surgical Hair Restoration
We offer non-surgical hair restoration therapies that are tailored to your specific needs. Bluegrass Preventive Medicine can help you regrow your hair while providing exceptional care and support before, during, and after your treatment.
We provide a number of non-surgical, prescription-grade hair growth treatments and therapies that can help prevent hair loss and, in some situations, stimulate hair growth. The majority of hair loss treatment programs contain a combination of these medications and procedures, both as stand-alone treatments or working in conjunction as a tailored plan for your needs.
Non-Surgical Hair Restoration treatment options include but are not limited to:
What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP Therapy)?
Platelet-rich plasma injections, peptides or both, are used to stimulate new hair growth over a series of treatments. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are a safe and effective way to cure hair loss, especially on the scalp. Both female and male hair loss may be caused by androgenetic alopecia, a medical disorder in which hair follicles reduce in size.
PRP has long been utilized in the medical field to enhance and expedite healing. PRP is a blood component that includes unique proteins that aid in blood clotting as well as supporting cell proliferation. PRP is employed in a number of therapeutic settings, including orthopedic surgery and acne scar therapy using micro-needling. The fact that injecting PRP into damaged tissues (unhealthy hair follicles) helps rebuild and renew the cells in the treated region is the basis for PRP usage.
PRP injections for hair loss are done in the clinic and need very little patient preparation. To reduce patient pain during the process, a topical numbing cream is administered to the scalp approximately half an hour before the surgery. In order to make the PRP solution, your medical professional will extract some of your own blood. In a special PRP extraction tube, your blood is spun down in a centrifuge. Small quantities of PRP are injected into the scalp that is suffering hair loss or thinning hair after the PRP solution is extracted from your own blood.
Usually, 4-6 therapy sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart are recommended. Hair texture, thickness, and new hair follicle development may start as early as two weeks following the first treatment. Before evaluating ultimate outcomes, we recommend that patients wait 3-6 months following their first therapy.
Hair Growth With Copper Peptides
Copper is found in modest amounts in the human body, and it helps the body perform many activities in the blood, brain, and other places. Tyrosinase (a melanin-making enzyme) and other cuproenzymes will be unable to operate without copper. Melanin affects hair color and protects the skin from mild damage from the sun and electromagnetic radiation. Melanin is essential for pigmentation, and its function in the body is dependent on copper. Because a copper shortage may impact a person’s hair color, physicians believe that premature graying hair might be the consequence of a low copper level. Copper is also required for the body to break down iron.
Fatigue, sluggish development, skin and muscular discomfort, and hair issues are all symptoms of a shortage of copper in the body. Copper peptides have been a popular skincare ingredient since the 1970s. Three amino acids are joined together to form copper peptides. They aid in hair loss prevention in the following ways:
Dihydrotestosterone DHT Blocking in the Scalp DHT has been recognized as a major contributor to hair loss and balding in males. Copper peptides reduce DHT, which promotes hair growth. Because you’ve blocked DHT at its source, the conversion of testosterone to DHT in your scalp will come to a halt. You will see hair growth as a result of this. They help to increase microcirculation.
The circulation of oxygen-rich blood via the tiniest channel in the human circulatory system is known as microcirculation. All of the body’s organs, including the hair, need oxygen to function. The follicles will not operate properly without some oxygen, inhibiting hair development. In essence, copper peptides will aid in the stimulation of angiogenesis, resulting in an increase in oxygen and the regeneration of new blood vessels from previously damaged arteries in the follicles. Having healthy follicles is the most effective strategy to address hair issues at their source and produce rapid hair growth.
Copper peptides may also aid with stress, which is one of the leading causes of hair loss. The increase in blood vessels will instantly result in an increase in oxygen and nutrients, allowing for faster recovery from intensive exercise or stress and minimizing stress-related hair issues. They aid in the production of collagen and the repair of damaged skin.
Copper peptides also aid skin restoration by promoting the production of collagen and elastin, both of which are important anti-aging components. Copper-dependent enzymes have been shown to aid with skincare more than other anti-aging dermatological treatments, according to studies. They may also boost the fat cells on the scalp by improving collagen and elastin synthesis. According to Yale University researchers, an increase in fat cells on the scalp might lead to a considerable rise in hair growth.
Hair Growth With Thymic Peptides
For a long time, the thymus has been frequently employed in medicine. It is recognized for its capacity to restore immunity and boost the body’s own immune system to create T cells and B cells. T lymphocytes (T lymphocytes) aid in the destruction of sick or malignant cells in the body, while B lymphocytes (B lymphocytes) provide humoral immunity by secreting antibodies and destroying foreign pathogens during disease.
Hair growth, on the other hand, is one of the most recently found therapeutic effects of thymic peptides. Over the course of six months, a human research was conducted on two separate hair disorders: androgenetic alopecia (AGA) and chronic telogen effluvium (TE).
The researchers employed a shampoo based on synthetic thymus peptides and a thymus peptide lotion to test the peptide’s effectiveness. A total of 364 participants (male and female) with the two hair illnesses participated in the research.
The lotion was administered every day for 24 weeks, while the shampoo was administered three times a week. The results revealed a considerable improvement in all groups, with the AGA patients seeing an average improvement of 89 percent in their symptoms.
The TE patients had a 98 percent improvement, with an average symptom score of 95 percent. Furthermore, 100 percent of the patients in the groups reported no adverse effects, favorable compatibility, and 98 percent cosmetic approval. This research adds to the evidence of peptides’ usefulness in dermatology, where they’ve benefited a lot of patients with their hair issues.
Thymus peptides not only promote hair development, but also function as inhibitors of hair-loss-causing elements. They aid in the relief of common symptoms linked with a variety of hair problems, including itching, erythema, and seborrhea.

Surgical Hair Restoration
FUE Hair Transplant (Follicular Unit Extraction)
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE ) hair transplant is the extraction of individual hair follicles for relocation to balding or thinning areas of the scalp. The extractions are spread in such a way that the scarring is hard to notice. Bluegrass Preventive Medicine has been performing FUE hair transplantation since 2010 and are very skilled at this very delicate procedure.
We only treat one patient per day, so we have time to do more FUE hair transplants per appointment. This procedure is more difficult than the FUT strip procedure because we must determine the way the hair grows and remove it without impacting it or transecting it. A transected follicle is one that has been severed causing damage to the follicle rendering it useless.
Faster Recovery Period
Hair transplants using Follicular Unit Extraction are a terrific technique to regrow your hair without having to wait weeks for it to grow back. In one to two days, you should be able to resume most of your typical daily activities. There will be no staples or stitches, and the temporary bandage will be removed 24 to 48 hours after your treatment. As your scalp heals and your hair grows, you’ll need to follow some particular care and washing recommendations, but they’re not difficult to follow.
Less Pain, More Gain
Unlike prior methods of hair restoration, the FUE procedure causes no discomfort. We use long-acting anesthetics to numb your scalp throughout the treatment, and most of our patients find that over-the-counter (OTC) pain relievers such as acetaminophen/Tylenol are sufficient the night after the surgery. After 24 hours, almost all patients report no more pain. In the occasion that Tylenol isn’t enough, we will prescribe a little dosage of prescription pain medicine. During and after the treatment, he is concerned about your comfort.
