Dallas Thinning Hair Treatments For Men and Women
A comprehensive approach to non-surgical hair loss treatments for men and women include hormonal optimization, topical medications, LLLT, ACell + PRP hair regeneration
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, an estimated 50 million men and 30 million women in the US suffer from hereditary hair loss; millions more have hair loss/thinning hair related to stress, pregnancy, menopause, andropause, chronic illness and other reasons.
The treatments for thinning hair have been less than satisfactory. Women have even fewer treatment options than men until now. With the recent advancements in PRP regenerative therapy and with improvement in the quality of LLLT devices, we now have safe and effective treatment options that can regenerate hair and slow down future hair loss in men and women with androgenic alopecia, regrow hair in alopecia areata, and speed up hair regrowth in telogen effluvium. Basically, the current treatments for thinning hair can be divided into the following groups:
- Medical Treatments- Topical and oral medications
- Non-invasive Hair Loss Treatments
- Minimally Invasive Hair Loss Treatments
- Surgical Treatments- Hair transplants
There has been a big lack of treatment choices in between the medical and surgical options until recently. Over the last couple of years, there has been a significant development in the gap between medical and surgical treatments for hair loss, thinning hair and baldness. This is especially great for women with thinning hair because women have very few options for medical and surgical thinning hair treatments.
Most medications for hair loss are not suitable for women. Hair transplant is an option for a very small number of women with thinning hair. Due to generalized thinning of hair instead of patchy hair loss, less than 5% of women are candidates for hair transplant.
New Hair Loss Treatment Options For Men and Women
We have found that for best results from the hair regeneration treatments for thinning hair in men and women a comprehensive treatment plan, based on individual medical history, hair loss history, and previous treatment response works best. Such a comprehensive plan consists of nutritional counselling, hormone evaluation, and hormonal optimization when medically necessary, supplements and hair care products along with in-office medical treatments. Our approach to hair loss treatments that have promising results for both men and women are:
- Medical History and Hormone Status Evaluation if Indicated
- Nutrition Optimization and Oral Hair health Supplements
- Topical Hair Growth Stimulants And Products To Reduce the DHT Effect
- Low-Level Laser Therapy- LLLT
- PRP For Hair Regeneration In Men And Women
- PRP + ACell Treatment For Thinning Hair
We are thrilled with the results from our hair loss treatments with ACell + PRP and PRP alone for individuals with androgenic alopecia, alopecia area and telogen effluvium with delayed or slow hair regeneration. We have also great results for thinning hair treatment with LLLT alone for those with early and mild hair loss. No two individuals are alike in their response to thinning hair treatments, but overall over 90% of our patients treated for thinning hair experience a noticeable improvement in hair density and hair quality after completing their treatments as recommended. A comprehensive approach to thinning hair always starts with lifestyle modification with optimization of nutrition, better stress management and avoidance of toxins. It is also important to rule out the most common medical illnesses leading to hair loss, such as iron deficiency, thyroid imbalance etc. Your hair loss treatment in Southlake and Dallas starts with a personal consultation with Dr. Malik. She will review your medical history and may need to get basic blood work to rule out the common medical illness. Your Thyroid and iron deficiency will need to be managed by your primary care physician.
