Methods Designed to Slow Hair Loss

For men and women who are losing their hair and have valiantly tried to fight it using treatments like shampoos and topical medications – don’t lose hope! Medical advancements have helped hair loss and hair thinning become issues of the past.

There are now effective ways to get your hair back through a variety of treatments. These methods can be used on their own, in combination with other treatments for hair loss, or in conjunction with hair transplant procedures to combat hair loss.

Medical Treatments for Hair Loss Without Surgery

Let’s take a look at some of the nonsurgical medical methodologies that are used by hair restoration doctors to help men and women get their hair back:

Scalp Injections

Scalp injections are effective and efficient treatments to combat hair loss because the treatment is injected directly into the balding area. One of the most effective injection treatments is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, which is a type of regenerative medicine that fosters your own body’s ability to heal and regrow cells.

The theory behind PRP therapy is that the platelets in your blood are specifically designed to heal the injury. They also have “growth factors” that encourage healing and regrowth. Therefore, PRP therapy involves injecting a platelet-rich concentration from your own blood into your scalp in order to stimulate healing and healthy follicle production. Many patients experience excellent results.

Combination Treatments

To double the efforts, hair loss specialists and surgeons often combine treatments. One example is combining PRP therapy with another revolutionary biotechnology called ACell.

The ACell + PRP therapy treatment combines the regenerative properties of ACell with the healing stimulation of PRP therapy. ACell provides a cellular structure called MatriStem technology, which is a special protein complex that facilitates cells to regrow and rebuild.

Together, they result in effective and supercharged results that reduce hair loss and stimulate new hair growth.

Low-Level Laser Therapy

If your hair is thinning, home-based low-level laser therapy (LLLT) may be a great solution for you. You wear the device on your head underneath a hat (so no one ever has to know!) three times a day for just 20 minutes at a time.

This laser therapy was previously only performed by doctors at a clinic, but it’s now available for everyday use to avoid any interruptions in your lifestyle. It can be used alone or in combination with other treatments, such as Rogaine.
