Hair Loss: New Treatment Options

Hair Loss: New Treatment OptionsIn the world of hair loss, new treatment options are one of the most widely publicized topics. Often discussed hand in hand with ground breaking research, new hair loss treatments are continuously developed and researched in a tireless effort to improve patient outcomes and quality of life.

Hair Loss: New Treatment in 2016

So, what are the newest hair loss treatment options to watch for in 2016? Browse the treatments below for expert insight on the year’s biggest trends in hair restoration.

Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP). Although this treatment has been around for few years, physicians are now using PRP in conjunction with other hair loss treatments to improve overall outcomes. At the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, PRP is often used to improve surgical hair restoration procedures, like Mosaic® Hair Restoration.

Mosaic® Hair Restoration. ISHRS Golden Follicle award winning surgeons, Drs. Nusbaum and Rose, have developed a patented method of hair restoration that ensures the best possible transplant result by identifying and recreating each patient’s unique follicular pattern in the restoration area. To learn more about Mosaic® Hair Restoration, visit this page on hair restoration techniques.

Laser Therapy. Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is a new approach to non-surgical hair restoration that utilizes safe, medical-grade laser light to increase blood flow across the entire scalp. By increasing blood flow, LLLT can improve oxygen availability within the hair follicle. Our clinic is pleased to offer laser therapy with Capillus272™ Pro, a FDA cleared laser therapy cap that can be used at home and while on-the-go.

Stem Cell Treatment. Stem cell treatments are done as an outpatient with local anesthesia and a mild oral sedative. A small liposuction procedure is performed on the belly, flanks or “love handles” to obtain the patient’s own fat. A special process is used to isolate and concentrate the stem cells from the fat and these are then injected into the scalp.

Androgenetic Alopecia in Women

Androgenetic Alopecia in WomenAndrogenetic alopecia in women is common. Although many people think of men when they hear “pattern baldness,” androgenetic alopecia can be just as devastating to a woman’s sense of image, confidence, and self esteem. It is estimated that androgenetic alopecia affects 20 million women in the United States, though the number might actually be close to 30 million. Androgenetic alopecia causes women to lose their hair in a diffuse manner, meaning that hair begins to thin and shed uniformly across the scalp.

Classification of Androgenetic Alopecia in Women

To classify androgenetic alopecia in women, physicians use a scale known as the Ludwig Classification. This scale categorizes female hair loss according to 3 unique stages: Type 1, Type 2, and Type 3. View the Ludwig Classification chart and learn more about each classification of female hair loss by visiting the following article, Ludwig Classification: Diagnosing Female Hair Loss.

Female Androgenetic Alopecia Prevention

For men, pattern baldness follows a somewhat predictable pattern that begins with shedding in the frontal hairline. This leads to more pronounced hair loss across the top of the head, and finally toward the crown. Androgenetic alopecia in women progresses differently than in men, however. For women, androgenetic alopecia may be undetectable for quite some time. Because the condition usually affects the entire scalp at once, it can be hard to tell when hair loss first begins. Luckily, there are warning signs to look for.

Androgenetic Alopecia: Specialized Treatment for Women

Female hair loss is unique, and there are two standout treatments that every woman should consider when taking up the fight against androgenetic alopecia. The first is topical hair loss foam. Called Minoxidil, this treatment is perhaps best known by the brand name Rogaine®. The foam must be applied directly to the scalp twice daily, or as otherwise advised by a hair loss professional. Many women find this to be a chore, which has led many to try a new method of treatment called low level laser therapy (LLLT).

Treating Androgenetic Alopecia with Laser Therapy

Low level laser therapy has been proven effective in clinical studies. At the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, we offer two options for this new approach to hair loss prevention. In the office, patients may experience laser therapy with the Capillus272™ OfficePro. Patients may also enjoy LLLT treatment in the privacy of their own home with the Capillus272™ Pro laser cap. Both products are cleared by the FDA for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia in women. In independently reviewed clinical trials, Capillus® technology produced 51% increase in hair count among participants (study made available on ClinicalTrials.gov).

If you experience hair loss, you are not alone. Take control of your hair and experience thicker, fuller looking hair with a personalized approach to hair restoration at Miami Hair. All evaluations and treatment programs are conducted by Drs. Bernard Nusbaum and Paul Rose, two ISHRS Golden Follicle Award winning surgeons with more than 40 years combined experience in the field.

New Study Identifies JAK Enzyme Inhibitor as Possible Hair Loss Cure

New Study Identifies JAK Enzyme Inhibitor as Possible Hair Loss Cure In a new study published by researchers at Columbia University, scientists believe they may have found an enzyme that controls hair growth. These enzymes are part of the Janus kinase, or JAK, family. In studies conducted with laboratory mice, researchers found that rapid hair growth could be achieved simply by inhibiting the JAK family of enzymes.

“What we’ve found is promising, though we haven’t yet shown it’s a cure for pattern baldness,” said Dr. Christiano in a news story published by Columbia University. “More work needs to be done to test if JAK inhibitors can induce hair growth in humans using formulations specially made for the scalp.”

Although it is uncertain whether or not “JAK inhibitor” hair restoration procedures will ever be available to hair loss sufferers, other treatments are available to patients in the form of topical foams, prescription medications, and laser therapy. Each of these non-surgical treatments focuses on preventing hair follicles from slipping into a “resting” phase, which is similar to the way JAK enzyme inhibition was found to promote new hair growth. By preventing hair follicles from becoming dormant—and hopefully reawakening those that are already asleep—these treatments aim to stop the progression of hair loss by improving hair follicle health so a natural growth cycle can be maintained.

Hair Follicle Health: Before & After Surgery

Hair loss is a progressive life long disease, so it’s important to understand how your condition may change over time. Every patient experiences a unique (though somewhat predictable) pattern of hair loss, which will ultimately affect the nuances of how and when a hair transplant will be performed. For many patients, supplementary treatments may prove helpful in preventing the progression of hair loss in the days and weeks before hair transplant surgery.

“We recommend a complement to hair transplant surgery,” explains Dr. Bernard Nusbaum. “And finasteride, minoxidil as well as laser therapy with Capillus products are an excellent option. These treatments can be used singly, or in combination.”

The Hair Transplant Institute also offers laser therapy with the Capillus272™ OfficePro. This unit is located on-site, and is recommended for use during the first days after hair transplant surgery. “Within two weeks after surgery, laser therapy with the Capillus272 Office Pro is utilized to enhance healing and speed post-procedure recovery.”

Reducing Scalp Trauma to Maintain Follicle Health

Most patients are familiar with the goal of a hair transplant procedure: To extract donor hair from a healthy area of scalp so it can be transplanted to the area(s) suffering from excessive hair loss, thinning, or balding (commonly referred to as the “restoration area”). However, many are unfamiliar with a second goal that is of equal importance. While performing a hair transplant, surgeons must minimize scalp trauma to ensure each transplanted hair follicle survives and thrives in the restoration area.

A new study co-authored by the Hair Transplant Institute’s lead surgeon, Dr. Paul Rose, reveals a new approach to follicular unit extraction (FUE) that may reduce scalp trauma by more than 21%. The new technique promises several key benefits, including:

  • Accelerated healing process
  • Reduced appearance of post operative scars
  • Minimizing of any potential blood loss

The Best Treatment for a Receding Hairline

The Best Treatment for a Receding HairlineThe best treatment for a receding hairline may differ according to individual patient needs. The good news: Patients have a variety of options available to treat not just receding hairlines, but also widespread hair loss as well. Patients are urged to always consult a physician prior to starting a hair loss treatment protocol. Only under the guidance of a licensed hair loss professional can patients receive the most personalized and comprehensive plan for stopping the progression of hair loss, and restoring areas of thinning or receding hair.

Preventing Ongoing Hair Loss

Most patients are surprised to learn that active hair loss prevention is important during the treatment a receding hairline. Hair loss is progressive, so it’s important to curb the rate at which you are losing hair while also seeking restoration treatment (see section below, Restoring Receding Hairlines). Today, there are 3 primary methods of hair loss prevention that are backed by clinical studies. They include:

  • Topical hair foam (e.g. Minoxidil®)
  • Hair loss medications (e.g. Propecia®)
  • Laser hair restoration (e.g. using a laser cap like Capillus272™ Pro)

An important note for female patients: Hair loss medications like Propecia® are for males only. Topical hair foams are an effective alternative for most women. If the application of a topical foam seems messy and tedious, we recommend at-home laser therapy with the Capillus272™ Pro.

When Prevention is Not Enough. Some patients see the results they desire after just a few months of using a hair loss prevention product like those described above. In other cases, these methods of hair loss prevention do not recreate the look of a fuller hairline. Rather, they simply abate the progression of hair loss. When topical foams, pills, and laser caps are not enough, patients may look to surgical hair restoration with a professional surgeon.

Restoring Receding Hairlines

At Hair Transplant Institute Miami, we are pleased to offer 2 highly refined approaches to surgical hairline restoration. The first is traditional “Strip” procedure, and the second is the follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique. Both techniques are extremely effective when performed by Dr. Bernard Nusbaum and Dr. Paul Rose, two ISHRS Golden Follicle Award winning surgeons who lead the surgical team at Hair Transplant Institute Miami. Visitors are invited to read more about hair transplant techniques here.

4 Easy Ways to Stop Male Hair Loss

4 Easy Ways to Stop Male Hair Loss Everyone loses hair. In fact, men and women lose up to 100 hairs every day. It’s a natural part of the hair growth cycle, a time when the hair follicle sheds a hair strand so it may enter a resting phase and regrow hair in the future.

However, hair follicles sometimes fall into dormancy, becoming inactive and incapable of producing additional hairs. Dormancy can be brought on by a number of factors, including stress, poor diet, and plain old genetics.

Fortunately, there are ways to proactively fight to not only keep the hair you have, but also make it stronger. Enjoy these easy tips for stopping male hair loss, and share your thoughts in the Comments section below!

Don’t over wash.

It’s important to strike a balance between hair washing and letting your hair go a few days without shampoo. For men with thicker hair, it may be best to go 2-3 days without washing. On the other hand, men with a condition like scalp folliculitis should wash their hair more frequently (as directed by their physician). Important: Read more in this article, Does Not Washing Hair Cause Hair Loss?

Massage your scalp.

Blood flow is extremely important to maintaining a normal and healthy hair growth cycle. In fact, one of the biggest reasons hair follicles begin to shut down is from lack of oxygen, nutrients, and other growth hormones—all ingredients that are delivered by the bloodstream. Take a proactive step toward preventing this issue by enjoying a gentle scalp massage every day.

Try LLLT

LLLT stands for low level laser therapy. These medical products are designed to stimulate blood flow and cellular activity within the scalp. In addition to flooding the scalp with oxygen, nutrients, and other growth hormones, these laser caps also stimulate growth activity within the cells of the hair follicle. Learn more about Capillus272™ Pro laser cap, a FDA-cleared product that has been shown to increase hair counts by up to 51% in patients (individual results may vary).

Don’t sweat the small stuff…

…and it’s all small stuff. Few things are worse for the body than chronic stress. Stress has been shown to suppress the immune system, increase the risk of cardiovascular issues, and significantly impair quality of life. On your scalp, stress may cause hair follicles—and hair growth—to shut down. Learn more about this condition, called Telogen effluvium.
