Hair Loss Treatments FAQs:

How does minoxidil (Rogaine) work?

Minoxidil is a topical medication that is applied directly to the scalp to stimulate hair growth. It is thought to widen blood vessels and increase blood flow to the hair follicles, which can prolong the growth phase of the hair cycle and promote thicker, longer hair.

What is finasteride (Propecia), and how does it work?

Finasteride is an oral medication that is taken daily to treat male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia). It works by inhibiting the enzyme 5-alpha reductase, which converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a hormone that can shrink hair follicles and lead to hair loss.

What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy for hair loss?

PRP therapy involves drawing a small amount of the patient's blood, processing it to isolate the platelet-rich plasma, and then injecting it into the scalp. Platelets contain growth factors that can stimulate hair follicles, promote hair growth, and improve the thickness and quality of existing hair.

How do I choose the right hair loss treatment for me?

It's essential to consult with a qualified dermatologist or hair restoration specialist to determine the underlying cause of your hair loss and develop a personalized treatment plan. Factors such as the cause and extent of hair loss, your overall health, and your preferences will influence the choice of treatment.
