L&P Stimulate Program
The L&P Stimulate Program for hair loss allows our Palo Alto, San Jose, and San Francisco Bay Area hair-loss patients to enjoy new hair growth without undergoing any surgical procedures. The L&P Stimulate program is designed for patients who are not ready for a NeoGraft® hair transplant but want to preserve their existing hair. It is safe, non-surgical, and incorporates a multi-modality approach to stimulating underperforming hair follicles into functioning again. The treatment plan is always customized, after a thorough consultation with one of our hair restoration specialists, and includes a combination of FDA-approved therapies including nutraceuticals, oral supplements, and topical shampoos. Healthy hair follicles typically produce 2 to 3 strands of hair. When a person experiences hair loss or thinning, the actual hair follicles have lost their density and generally produce only a single strand of hair. If a person has been losing their hair for many years, it is likely that many of the hair follicles are too far gone to engage in stimulation techniques with the Stimulate program. For appropriate patients, some improvement in reversing the miniaturization of the follicles is usually noticed in the first couple of months of the program; however, several months of treatment are required to see a real change.
Why Choose Drs. Lieberman & Parikh For Nonsurgical Hair Stimulation
Dual-board certified facial plastic surgeons, Dr. David Lieberman and Dr. Sachin Parikh, specialize in head and neck surgery are highly experienced in the field of hair restoration. They know first-hand how experiencing hair loss can cause emotional distress and a dramatic decrease in self-confidence. Both Dr. Lieberman and Dr. Parikh stay on the forefront of hair regrowth treatments and specialize in helping patients achieve their aesthetic goals through customized, hair-regrowth treatment plans.
Who Is Not a Good Candidate for L&P Stimulate for Hair Loss?
If a person has been bald or nearly bald for many years, as is the case with Dr. Lieberman, neither the L&P Stimulate program for hair loss nor the Populate program, which includes a NeoGraft hair transplant, will cause any change in the amount of hair. After a prolonged period, hair follicles die and cannot be stimulated to regrow.
In male pattern baldness, hair follicles change over time; therefore, it is necessary to have an in-person consultation to assess the condition of the follicles. If hair loss is treated early enough, hair follicles can usually be stimulated to begin growing again with a treatment plan such as the L&P Stimulate program.
Patients with a history of heavy smoking, drug or alcohol use may also not be good candidates for the treatment. Medical diagnoses such as platelet dysfunction syndromes, thrombocytopenia, hypofibrinogenemia, hemodynamic instability, sepsis, chronic liver disease, chronic skin diseases, and other metabolic and systemic disorders put patients at risk for this hair loss treatment.
