Hair loss / Thinning Q & A

There are many treatment modalities for thinning hair for both men and women. Many of these modalities are combined to add efficacy to the process. We use a combination of topical, oral and injected therapies to give your scalp a multi-pronged regeneration and restoration.

Microneedling is a method of introducing a controlled wound into the scalp that triggers a release of growth factors, new collagen and elastin. Microneedling also enables improved delivery of medications to the thinning hair. Microneedling can be used to deliver Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), Minoxidil or AnteAGE  serum. Home microneedling devices along with topical solutions are also available to keep the process going at home.

PRP is the concentration of platelets and growth factors found in the blood. PRP collection is a multistep process that involves an in-office blood draw, centrifugation, and isolation of the PRP solution. A small amount of blood is drawn and the red cells are separated from the platelet rich plasma. Since the PRP solution is isolated from the patient’s own blood, there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction.

Because we use Regenerative Medicine Therapies, our practice has access to additional cutting edge, products and techniques that may help retain and increase your hair. Please schedule a consultation to discuss.
