Hair Loss Therapy

Medical Treatments

Therapy options for hair loss typically do not result in regrowth of hair follicles that have already permanently died and fallen out, nor do they typically result in any new growth of terminal hairs. However, they can be very effective in preventing or slowing future hair loss significantly, especially when multiple therapies are used over a period of time. Hair loss therapy products are strongly recommended in conjunction with a surgical procedure to help a patient restore the hair that they have lost, and keep on to the existing non-transplanted hair that is still susceptible to future hair loss.

Finasteride

Finasteride prevents the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body.

Finasteride is used for the treatment of male pattern hair loss on the vertex and the anterior mid-scalp area. Male pattern hair loss is a common condition in which men experience thinning of the hair on the scalp. Often, this results in a receding hairline and/or balding on the top of the head. Propecia is for use by men only and should not be used by women or children.

Rogaine (Minoxidil)

ROGAINE® is the only topical brand FDA-approved to regrow hair—in both men and women. With more than 23 years of results and over 20,000 people in clinical trials, ROGAINE® is the #1 dermatologist-recommended brand for hair regrowth. ROGAINE® helps reverse the progression of hereditary hair loss.

And with revolutionary Men’s ROGAINE® Foam (the only FDA-approved hair regrowth foam), ROGAINE® continues to lead the way in topical products for regrowing hair. In clinical testing, ROGAINE® Foam regrew hair in 85% of men after 4 months when used twice daily. Plus, it goes on easy and dries quickly.

Laser & Light Therapy

The use of PhotoTherapy (light therapy) in medicine has a long history. The Egyptians filtered sunlight through precious gems to obtain desired colors of light. Archeologists have found ancient records on Egyptian papyri dating back to 1550 BC detailing PhotoTherapy “treatment.” The Greeks built solarium cities in high mountains to harness the additional ultra-violet light available there for healing tuberculosis. And red light was used to quell the effects of the smallpox virus.

In 1903, the second Nobel Prize in Medicine (Physiology) was awarded to Niels Ryberg Finsen, M.D., in recognition of his contribution to the treatment of diseases with concentrated light energy, “PhotoTherapy”. Dr. Finsen was recognized for opening a whole new avenue for medical science.

Today’s PhotoTherapy devices are used to treat everyone from newborn infants suffering from jaundice to adults seeking relief from skin conditions and hair loss.
