  1. This patient underwent a two-day SMP (scalp micro pigmentation) procedure with Dr. Arocha and his team. The after results were taken one week after his procedure. He had very thin donor from previous, older technology procedures - done elsewhere in the 80's and 90's. For this reason, Dr. Arocha opted to perform the SMP procedure to improve this large area. In the future, we might attempt to enhance certain smaller areas through FUE. Before: After: Before: After: Before: After: Before: After: Before: After: Before: After:
  2. Hi True, Dr. Arocha follows guiding principles such as the DaVinci Rule of Thirds when determining where to place the hairline. The patient is thrilled with his new, natural-looking hairline. Thanks for looking and taking the time to comment.
  3. Thanks so much, Vinzaf19! Dr. Arocha does indeed to SMP procedures. I'll post another case today of one of our recent patients. Dr. Arocha did decide that SMP was the best option for this patient given the over-harvesting of his donor. I will continue to update!
  4. Bill, As always, thank you for all you do for this community. Dr. Arocha is now offering the minimally invasive scalp micro pigmentation procedure. As we see more patients in our office, I'll continue to post additional before and after photos. Thanks for updating his profiles and recommendation. Kira/Arocha Angel
  5. Hi Melvin - Thanks for your question. I asked Dr. Arocha, and he said the primary purpose of the SMP procedure was not to cover the over-harvested scarring. His transplant failed to frame his face, so that was the desired reason to move forward with the SMP. He was so unhappy with his initial result that he chose to shave his head and keep his hair short. For that reason and given the over-harvested donor, Dr. Arocha felt that the SMP was the best option for this patient. Let me find a close-up image of his donor scars with the SMP, and I will post. Thank you!
  6. Hi Gasthoerer, Thanks for these questions. Unfortunately, this young man is a repair case from a botched FUE surgery (with a different surgeon) that left him with over-harvested donor and visible FUE scars. He had nothing to show but a poor, unnatural looking result, which is why we decided to perform our SMP procedure on him. His scalp is scarred at the transplanted sites, and he also had poor growth. With our minimally invasive SMP procedure, we are trying to hide the scars and will proceed in a careful manner to empirically determine what will work best with this particular patient's scarring. We look forward to continue providing updates for this patient.
  7. This patient underwent a 2000 FUT (strip) procedure. The after results were taken 2 years after the patient’s initial procedure. The patient will undergo a second procedure to further enhance the density in the near future. Before: After: Before: After: Before: After: Before: After: Before: After: Before: After: Before: After:
  8. This patient came to Dr. Arocha with extensive male-pattern baldness. He desired a minimally-invasive procedure that would give him the appearance of having a full head of hair. He was the perfect candidate for our state-of-the-art Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) procedure. The after photos were taken after two SMP sessions and were taken one week after the procedures.

  12. Hi Steeve, JJsrader and Andy, Thank you for your questions and comments. These are certainly interesting thoughts and our purpose here is to educate patients who might be considering a hair restoration procedure. We know it's such a difficult decision and (hopefully) much thought goes into choosing the best surgeon for your particular case. I'll talk to Dr. Arocha about conducting a study. Andy, thanks for reaching out. Please keep in mind that these are still kind of early results for this single PRP treatment. However, you can see that there is growth where there wasn't any before. There has also been reversal of the miniaturization. While we would also love to have our patients come back in with the exact same hairstyle, it's rarely possible. So we do try our best to take images from the same angles to give you the best comparison possible.
  13. Dr. Arocha and his team performed a 1500 FUT artistic hair restoration on this patient. Using minimal grafts, Dr. Arocha was able to help this patient achieve more density and frame his face. The after photos were taken 10 months after his procedure. Before: After: Before: After: Before: After:
  14. Thanks for your question. PRP duration of benefit is dependent upon each individual patient's condition, response to therapy, as well as use of additional medical therapies such Rogaine, Propecia (in males) and laser therapy. Benefits can be prolonged when the injections are done in a series.
