Hair loss can have an emotional impact on both men and women, especially if it occurs at an early age. Dr. Smith provides compassionate and personalized care for hair loss that can restore your confidence in your appearance.
Fortunately, today’s advances in technology offer up a range of hair restoration systems that can naturally regenerate a fuller, healthier head of hair. The Selphyl fibrin matrix system that we offer at Sapphire Advanced Aesthetics in Minneapolis makes the most of today’s technological advancements. The Selphyl system is the next generation in stimulating hair growth without the need for the transplantation of hair follicles. Dr. Smith is proud to offer this state-of-the-art hair restoration treatment system for women and men. There are compelling reasons why the Selphyl system is poised to become a top choice in non-surgical hair restoration today.
Am I a candidate for the Selphyl system for hair restoration?
The best way to determine your candidacy for this type of treatment is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Smith. While many patients will be considered successful candidates, there are certain types of hair loss that do not respond to the Selphyl system.
How long do results last?
Hair regrowth using the Selphyl system is not considered permanent. To maintain healthy results Dr. Smith can perform re-treatments as needed, typically every 3-6 months.
What Causes Thinning Hair?
For many people, thinning hair is an effect of aging that can’t be ignored, but for others, it can be the side effect of hormonal changes, a medical condition, medication or even stress.

A healthy scalp sheds anywhere from 50 to 100 hairs a day. While this sounds like a significant number, an ongoing hair growth cycle maintains a full head of hair in spite of this daily hair loss. As the body ages, the processes that support cycles of hair growth start to slow down much like other systems in the body begin to decline.
One of the components involved in the hair growth cycle is a network of blood vessels that supply oxygen and nutrients to the scalp. With age, these blood vessels weaken, and blood flow is not as robust as it was during the younger years. When this happens, hair may begin to thin out.
The variety of hair restoration treatments on the market attempt to stimulate hair growth in different ways. Unless a hair treatment helps the scalp receive the nutrients it needs to flourish, you will likely see limited results at best. Selphyl System’s Fibrin Matrix treatment supports hair growth where it’s needed most.
Drawbacks of Traditional Hair Restoration Methods
FUE Hair Transplants
Dr. Smith has seen multiple patients who have gone through FUE hair transplants and not seen the results they were expecting. This is very common, as this expensive treatment does not address the root of the problem. Hair transplant procedures involve moving hair grafts from the back of the head to thinning areas along the scalp. If hair loss is considerable, multiple grafts will be needed to create a natural hair density in the affected area. Since the scalp can only handle so many hair grafts per centimeter, exceeding this limit increases the risk that the grafts will be lost.
Furthermore, inadequate blood supply to the thinning area is not addressed in this method, and this underlying condition can prove to be problematic during the hair transplant procedure. If the blood vessels are weak or dying off, the hair grafts won’t receive the oxygen and nutrients needed to thrive, exactly the same reason why hair growth has tapered off. Comparatively, using the Selphyl fibrin system is an economical and effective alternative that actually results in increased hair growth.
