Hair Loss

Hair Loss can be frustrating for both men and women. There are many etiologies for hair loss, ranging from genetics to various medical conditions. Los Angeles Hair Transplant Center conducts an in-depth evaluation to determine whether there are any reversible causes. The most common medical conditions include thyroid problems and low iron level. Even stress can lead to hair loss.

After conducting a comprehensive hair analysis, Los Angeles Hair Transplant Center then offers both medical and surgical options to reverse hair loss. Hair transplants remain the only permanent solution to treat hair loss. Besides hair transplantation, there are a few medical therapies that are approved for hair loss, such as Propecia (Finasteride), Rogaine (Minoxidil), and low-level light therapy. Propecia is a pill, and it is taken once daily. Rogaine is a topical solution and is used twice daily. Low-level light therapy, such as Hairmax laser comb, is used twice weekly. It can take about 4 to 6 months to see results from any one of these therapies. Unfortunately, once one stops using the products, hair loss will resume. Further, compliance is difficult, further contributing to poor outcome.

The only permanent solution to hair loss remains to be hair transplantation. The hairs grafts used in hair transplantation are from the permanent donor area and do not fall out. Hair restoration is a simple in-office procedure that is less painful than going to the dentist. Los Angeles Hair Transplant Center integrates the art and science of hair transplantation to create the most natural hairline and hair transplant. The use of advanced microscopes and custom-made blades are key to creating a very natural result.

There are a couple methods of hair transplantation, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and strip removal hair. They both use follicular grafts and the results are as natural. No plugs or mini-grafts are ever used.
