Non-surgical hair restoration

Exosomes, PRP, stem cells, and new technology

Dr. Cooley has extensive experience using injection-based treatments for thinning hair over the last 15 years. Dr. Cooley began performing PRP (platelet rich plasma) in 2008. In 2010, he combined this with ACell to create the PRP/ACell treatments which he performed over the next 10 years with good results. In 2019, he began using stem cell derived exosomes as an alternative and now recommends this to most patients. In 2023, he began combining the exosome injections with the Alma DUO, which provides ‘shock waves’ to the scalp, stimulating blood flow and encouraging maximal response to the exosomes.
Similar to medical therapy and TED treatments, injection based treatments do not create new hair follicles. A hair transplant is the only way to create new hair growth in a bald area. Injection treatments can help thicken hair which is in the early to moderate stages of ‘miniaturization’ or thinning. Results typically begin to be noticeable in 3-4 months, and are assessed at the 9 month mark. Depending on how strong your genetics are, and whether you are on medication to prevent hair loss, treatments may be performed once a year or every other year.
The treatment takes about an hour. We use local anesthesia to numb up the scalp. This is a little uncomfortable, similar to going to the dentist. This only takes a few minutes and after that, you will not feel any discomfort. Your scalp will remain numb for a few hours afterwards. Most patients do not experience pain afterwards, but some patients will have some increased sensitivity and irritation for a few days. Mild shedding may occur as the injection promotes hairs which are in the resting phase and going to shed in the next month or two to fall out sooner. Rest assured, this simply means the treatment is working and new hair growth will occur.

What is ALMA TED?

The Alma TED is a revolutionary treatment for thinning hair which uses the latest technology to promote thicker, healthier hair. TED, which stands for ‘trans-epidermal delivery’, uses ultrasound waves and air pressure to push topical growth factors into the scalp and hair follicles without the need for injections. This stimulates the hair follicles resulting in thicker, more robust hair as well as improved blood flow and scalp health. The TED treatment is an exciting alternative to more expensive injection based treatments. On the other hand, the TED requires a series of treatments to attain optimal results.

Who is a candidate for TED treatments?

The best candidates have early, mild thinning (‘hair miniaturization’). The TED treatment does not create new hair, but neither does medical therapy or injection treatments. Only a hair transplant can actually create new hair growth in a bald area. The TED treatments can produce thicker hair with more volume. It is recommended that you have a consultation with Dr. Cooley to assess your hair loss, come up with a plan, and determine if you are a good candidate for TED treatments.

What are the treatments like?

The TED treatment takes about 30 minutes. The treatments are not painful and in fact, most people find it rather pleasant and relaxing. You will feel a warm, vibrating sensation and hear a slight ringing sound, but there is generally no pain because needles or anesthesia are not used. Many patients begin to notice thicker hair in about a month. A series of three treatments is recommended, spaced one month apart. What is necessary after that will depend on whether you are on a medical program to prevent hair loss and how strong your hair loss genetics are. Individual results do vary but most patients are very pleased with the improvement they see.

Incredible hospitality by the entire staff. Dr. Cooley and his team really are true masters of their craft. I would highly recommend Cooley Hair Center if your seeking hair restoration as a option. Not to mention all the non surgical options that they provide. Just to throw this out there.. I originally opted for a 1200 graft procedure and come to find out Dr. Cooley ended up implanting an additional 250 grafts at no charge. Thanks again guys!

My experience with Dr. Cooley and his staff was excellent. I had my first procedure almost two years ago and will be getting a second one very soon. He takes the time to listen to his patients and then makes recommendations based on what he thinks will look best. Everyone on his staff that I have dealt with was very friendly and helpful. If you are considering hair restoration there is no one better to do it.

Cooley by name, cool by nature. Very professional practice. All staff are excellent and focussed 100% on you. All after care is explained deeply. Dr Cooley and Brandi stayed back late to ensure I got an excellent result. I can not fault the experience so far. I highly recommend Dr Cooley to any one considering a HT. Do your research, he is definitely top 5 in the world. Remember this is is your face, you wear it every day. Thank you to all.

I have seen Dr Cooley for several hair transplant sessions and I can say with my experience from a few other hair transplant Dr's I have done sugery with that they don't even come close to Dr Cooley's work. This Dr is very professional and he takes pride in his work. I would love to do another surgery with him I just don't know if I have enough donor area left. Go see him you will not be disappointed I can say this with certainty!

The most down to earth guy with amazing bedside manners and in depth knowledge of the subject. He is not somebody who will show off his expertise and as they say action speaks louder than words. If you want a genuinely skilled physician whose only goal to take care of patients in the honest possible way, he is the man. Great experience. Thank you Dr Cooley.
