Hair loss surgery has made significant improvements over the years thanks to new technology. Gone are the days of limited options such as, hair plugs or large scars from out dated harvesting techniques. New technology can even help men and women who haven't lost enough hair to warrant surgery, but who still desire a fuller head of hair. At Nashville Hair Clinic, we offer the most up-to-date non-surgical hair loss treatments for both men and women. If you are considering hair loss treatment, read on to learn more about your options.
First, let's talk about what causes hair loss. Forget the idea that hair loss is associated only with men. A staggering 40% of woman in America also suffer from hair loss. Men are more prone to hair loss at an early age due to higher levels of testosterone, which interferes with the hair growth stage. However, testosterone also causes hair loss in women, but levels usually doesn't rise until after menopause. This particular form of hair loss (for both males and females) is called androgenetic alopecia, or more commonly referred to as pattern baldness. Although there isn't a cure to stop it, there are some non-surgical options that will help you feel and look your best.
There are several medications used to treat hair loss such as, Finasteride, Dutasteride, Minoxidil, Spironolactone, etc. Because each medication combats hair loss in a different way, your doctor will need to assess your current situation and recommend the best treatment available.
Laser Therapy is a safe form of treatment used to energize hair follicles on your scalp. The Phototherapy is cleared by the FDA and recommended by renowned hair doctors across the country. Different laser devices will achieve different results, so a consultation with your chosen doctor is necessary to help you determine your best course of action.
P.R.P. (Platelet Rich Plasma)
Platelet Rich Plasma is an excellent choice for those who don't have the option of downtime. It's become quite popular amongst famous athletes who need to return to work quickly. The process uses a mixture of your blood, which is then injected to help "heal cells." The right candidate receives two to three injections and requires a minimum of 20 to 30 minutes once every month.
Scalp Micro Pigmentation
This particular non-surgical treatment is excellent for people with limited donor hair and who need to treat scars. The technique uses a small dot of colored pigment (which matches the surrounding hair color), and is deposited on your epidermis, stimulating the appearance of hair. The effect is so realistic that it is nearly impossible to distinguish what is a hair from what is pigment. We highly recommend it for scar revision after multiple open donor hair transplants.
There are many excellent ways to achieve a natural, healthy head of hair without the need for transplantation surgery. At Nashville Hair Clinic we provide you with the latest advancement of all the non-surgical technologies.
