Before any hair loss cure attempts or treatments begin at the Bay Area's Lieberman & Parikh Center for Hair Restoration, you will discuss your problem and goals with the team. Your consultation will allow the doctors to explore possible reasons behind your hair loss, and their understanding of your specific situation can lead to an effective hair loss treatment plan. The discussion will touch on your age and health, since a variety of factors could explain your hair thinning and loss. Possible causes include pattern baldness, anemia, thyroid dysfunction, stress, and more. Figuring out exactly what is the culprit is crucial to determining your hair loss cure. If, for instance, the loss appears to be pregnancy-related, no surgery or other treatment would be needed.
The doctors are committed to helping you achieve a healthy head of hair, so your consultation on hair loss cure options will include education on your condition and on the full array of non-surgical and surgical treatments. Available non-surgical treatments include the FDA-approved laser comb, platelet-rich plasma, micro-needling, or prescription pharmaceuticals like Rogaine® and Propecia®.
Rogaine® and Propecia® are the two main FDA-approved topical and oral medications for hair loss. As a hair loss cure, Rogaine® stimulates strained hair follicles, increasing their size and slowing overall hair loss. This product is sold without a prescription and is typically applied to the scalp twice a day. Propecia® is a prescription medication that blocks the transformation of testosterone to DHT, a key stimulus in the process of male pattern hair loss. Propecia® is a powerful medication for men that actually can increase the number of hairs on the head. Please ask your doctor about potential side effects and limitations of either hair loss cure before starting the medication.
The Eclipse MicroPen™ is a cutting edge micro-needling device used in our practice to enhance blood supply to dying hair follicles. When this hair loss cure is used in conjunction with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), essential growth factors are simultaneously delivered to the follicles to restart the hair growth process. The micro-needling device allows us to get a deeper penetration of PRP infused into the scalp skin thus amplifying hair restoration abilities.
There is no one hair loss cure, because there is no one single cause of hair loss. Treatment at the Bay Area's Lieberman & Parikh Center for Hair Restoration is available to men and women seeking solutions, starting with a consultation. Call (650) 327‑3232 or schedule a visit.
