Recent studies show that 1 in 5 Americans are slowly losing their hair, with 20% of those experiencing hair loss or baldness being under the age of 30. If you’re experiencing unwanted hair loss, don’t give up hope. Dr. Chow’s Medical Practice offers a variety of hair loss treatment solutions for local patients to choose from.
Minoxidil and Finasteride are two of the most common prescriptions used on the market to promote hair growth.
Minoxidil is a topical medication works by widening blood vessels and increasing blood flow in your scalp and to your hair follicles. While Minoxidil doesn’t stop hair loss, it does work to make hair in a resting state initially shed, and then be replaced by hairs that are in a growing state. So while you may see a temporary increase in hair loss when using Minoxidil, overall, you’ll see those lost hairs replaced by hairs that are in the active, growing phase as you continue your treatment.
Finasteride works differently. It prevents hair loss by stopping their testosterone from converting into dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is a very strong and powerful androgenic hormone that causes hair loss. While DHT does damage hair follicles, it usually takes time to fully affect them.
The Nutrafol Supplement
Nutrafol is a natural supplement designed to stimulate hair growth. It’s 100% drug-free, and the company makes solutions targeted for men, as well as a product targeted directly for women, thus addressing the different genetic causes of hair loss between the sexes. This oral supplement not only has scientific data to back up its effectiveness but is also used by over 1,100 physicians.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injection
Another natural solution for treating hair loss is concentrated growth factor injections (PRP).
The process will take about 40 min. We use your own blood and spin in a centrifuge to create concentrated growth factors – a process that takes only 10 minutes. We will inject the growth factors into your scalp to promote hair growth and increase blood flow to the area.
