No matter what the reasoning behind your hair loss, there are now treatments available to assist in slowing the process while also encouraging healthier hair growth.
Unfortunately, there is no ONE step miracle approach to addressing hair loss. However, there are combination therapies that do provide significant results that may include topicals, oral medications, in office treatments, or a combination of all three to address the loss from the inside out AND the outside in.
Option One: PRP INJECTIONS
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is this three-step medical treatment includes a patient’s blood draw, then it is processed by spinning to separate the platelet rich plasma from the red blood cells using a process referred to as centrifugation. Once separated this growth factor rich serum (liquid gold) is then injected into the scalp by one of our expert injectors. PRP injections are recognized as triggers for promoting natural hair growth, and maintaining it by increasing the blood supply to the hair follicle and increasing the thickness of the hair shaft.
Suggested in a series of 3 – 4 treatments. Ideally spaced 4 – 6 weeks a part with maintenance treatments scheduled out for ongoing support.
Option Two: MICRONEEDLING WITH OR WITHOUT RADIO FREQUENCY
We have been treating patients with microneedling for years. This treatment is many times used in tandem with PRP being applied topically during the treatment or through injections performed by our dermatology providers.
This option has just gotten even better … now we have taken microneedling to a whole new level by incorporating radio frequency.
Meet Sylfirm X – The World’s 1st FDA-Approved Pulsed Wave and Continuous Wave Radio Frequency Microneedling System. This technology offers our patients the opportunity to now experience significant results with regard to thickening, overall scalp health, while minimizing hair thinning by stimulating fresh blood circulation to the area being treated. This in turn, activates hair follicles that may otherwise lie dormant. As a result, treatment leads to the growth of thicker, healthier hair.
Option Three: HYDRAFACIAL’S KERAVIVE TREATMENT
HydraFacial – Keravive is a deep cleansing, exfoliating treatment that incorporates LED light therapy. It helps to promotes a healthier scalp, and is excellent as a standalone or as maintenance treatment even for our patients that are simply looking for fuller, healthier hair.
Option Four: Home Care
No matter what treatment options you are receiving, creating a strong and consistent at home care regimen is essential to maintain and optimize your results. Suggestions often included are:
Topicals – Our providers may include a scalp polish, treatment shampoo, conditioner and spray on – leave on support products from a few of our favorite lines such as Nutrafol, and ISDIN. Taking your care even one step further, a patient may be introduced to topical prescription medications including, but not limited to Minoxidil.
Oral Medication – A patient may also be prescribed Finasteride. Finasteride is a prescription medication for men experiencing male pattern hair loss, or androgenetic alopecia. Corticosteroid medications may be introduced to treat patients with alopecia areata. These immune system suppressors are developed to counteract the effects of an autoimmune disorder, allowing the hair to grow stronger and healthier. Oral minoxidil is also a prescription medication used for male and female pattern hair loss.
Home Devices – Ongoing care can be achieved by including a device known as Theradome – PRO Laser Helmet. Theradome lasers are cordless and leave hands free to continue on with your busy schedule.
