Hair loss is a common issue that affects 1 in 5 Americans, with 20% of those experiencing hair loss or baldness being under the age of 30. But guess what? There are solutions!
Read here to find out more about what hair loss really is and explore the top hair rejuvenation treatments we offer here at Dr. Chow’s Rejuvenation Practice.
Understanding Hair Loss
Hair loss can be a distressing experience, affecting not just your appearance but also your self-esteem. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, hormonal changes, or even stress.
The good news? It’s treatable. And that’s where Dr. Chow’s Rejuvenation Practice comes in. We offer a range of state-of-the-art treatments to help you regain that full, luscious mane.
1. Prescription Options: Minoxidil and Finasteride
Minoxidil is a topical medication applied directly to the scalp, usually twice a day. It works by dilating small blood vessels around the hair follicles, improving the hair follicle function and stimulating hair growth.
Finasteride is an oral medication that inhibits the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a hormone that shrinks hair follicles. By reducing DHT levels, Finasteride helps to halt hair loss and in some cases, even regrow hair.
Both medications require ongoing use for sustained results. Side effects may include scalp irritation for Minoxidil and sexual dysfunction for Finasteride.
2. The Nutrafol Supplement
Nutrafol is a nutraceutical supplement that targets various root causes of hair loss, including stress, inflammation, and hormonal imbalances. It’s made from natural ingredients like saw palmetto, marine collagen, and hyaluronic acid.
The supplement works by nourishing the hair from within, improving hair growth, thickness, and scalp coverage.
As it’s a supplement, results may take time to become noticeable. Always consult with a healthcare provider before starting any new supplement.
3. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections
PRP therapy involves drawing a small amount of your blood, processing it to concentrate the platelets, and then injecting this platelet-rich plasma into areas of your scalp that need hair growth.
The growth factors in the plasma stimulate the hair follicles, encouraging new hair growth and improving the density and health of existing hair.
The treatment usually requires multiple sessions, and there may be mild discomfort during the injections. Maintenance treatments are often needed to sustain results.
4. At-Home Light Therapy Treatment
This hair loss treatment uses low-level light therapy (LLLT) technology, often in a laser cap or helmet, for at-home use. The light stimulates hair follicles, improving blood flow and extending the hair growth phase.
Results typically appear within 3 to 6 months. It’s a safe, non-invasive option, but effectiveness can vary, and guidelines must be followed to avoid scalp irritation.
