Hair Loss Treatments in 2020
No one likes to break promises. But every year, as the calendar turns from December to January, all of us make promises to ourselves – New Year’s resolutions – that we tend to break in a matter of weeks or months (or days!)
If you are and have been experiencing hair loss, you may have had one or more New Year’s Days where you woke up and said: “This is the year I’m going to do something about it!” If that’s you, and you still haven’t done anything about your hair loss, make 2020 different. By making one phone call to the Miami Hair & Skin Institute today, you can put yourself on track for a fuller, more youthful head of hair and increased self-confidence this year.
We offer several surgical and non-surgical treatment options for men and women living with every type and degree of hair loss issues. Our world-renowned hair restoration experts have the experience and insights to choose the treatment option best suited to your goals.
Here are just a few of the effective, safe, and proven 2020 hair restoration treatments we offer at the Miami Hair & Skin Institute:
Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
A popular non-invasive hair loss treatment, low-level laser therapy (LLLT) involves the use of specialized caps and combs which direct pulses of energy into inactive hair follicles. These pulses stimulate the follicles back into a phase of regrowth by promoting increased circulation and cellular respiration.
Among the LLLT options we offer is the Capillus272 laser cap. This FDA-approved device contains 272 professional-strength lasers that make it the most powerful at-home tool for treating hair loss. The cap is indistinguishable from any other baseball cap, so you can go about your life while simultaneously strengthening your hair follicles and turning the tide against hair loss.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
An increasing body of research has shown the effectiveness (and safety) of an approach to hair restoration that utilizes the body’s own natural growth and healing factors to stimulate the regrowth of hair. Platelet-rich plasma therapy takes the body’s natural processes and turbocharges them. In this therapy, we take a blood sample from the patient and place it in a centrifuge where the platelets are separated from other elements of the blood. We then inject the PRP into the treatment area, stimulating the repair and healing that the body is already working on.
At the 2019 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology, the author of a comprehensive study about the use of PRP wrote that “With consensus forming around treatment protocols, studies are indicating that PRP is a safe, effective hair loss treatment that has the potential to greatly improve the quality of life of millions of people.” We agree.
Stem Cell Therapy
Full heads of hair are the result of hair follicles which are continually regenerating, due in part to the presence of stem cells. But when those stem cells shrink and deteriorate as we age, hair stops renewing and ultimately falls out. That’s why reintroducing an individual’s own stem cells back to the follicles has the potential to create a nourishing environment which may foster regrowth and fight the battle against hair loss
Using a liposuction tool, we take fat cells from the belly, flanks, or love handles and extract the stem cells that can foster hair growth. We then inject this concentrated stem cell sample onto the scalp. The procedure is fast and minimally invasive.
Hair Restoration Drugs
Hair loss medications such as Rogaine® (Minoxidil) and Propecia are popular and proven ways to treat pattern hair loss without surgery. Both drugs, for the right patients, can stop or slow down hair loss and stimulate new hair growth in many patioent.
Hair Transplant Surgery
Of course, the Miami Hair & Skin Institute is a world leader in advanced hair transplant surgery. Our surgeons have been instrumental in the development of the most effective and widely used techniques, and have used their skills, experience, and artistry to perform successful procedures on thousands of men.
