Non Surgical Solutions for Hair Restoration

Hair restoration surgery isn’t always the only choice for revitalizing your natural hair. For individuals seeking solutions for hair loss or thinning hair, there are a number of proven, tested products and treatments prescribed by your Ziering Medical physician that are good options to explore. Hair restoration surgery is the only permanent solution, but many of our patients experience great success in slowing their hair loss or growing new hair by using non-surgical products and procedures.

When is it time to consider hair loss treatments or products?

As soon as you notice even the slightest amount of thinning hair. Hair loss is a progressive condition, generally stemming from heredity, so early detection and intervention is critical. Before you reach the point of excessive hair loss, Dr. Ziering recommends an expert evaluation to diagnose your condition and discuss treatment options.

Medical Therapy and Supplements

Some patients decide that a hair transplant is not for them or that their case is not severe enough to warrant surgery. In these cases, hair loss medication may provide an alternative option.

Some hair loss programmes can incorporate both a hair transplant and a course of hair loss drugs depending on the individual patient. Your Patient Advocate will discuss all of your options with you in the consultation.

Medication should commence as soon as possible in most instances – the sooner it starts, the greater the benefit will be.

However, if you are planning to have a hair restoration procedure within four to six weeks on your consultation, you can wait to begin it use after your transplant.

If you plan to wait several months to years before having the procedure it should be started immediately as it is the long term continuous use of adjunctive medical therapy which optimises the results of your hair restoration treatment plan.

Hair medication such as Propecia and Dutasteride requires a prescription. Please contact us for further information.

Laser Hair Therapy

Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is sometimes referred to as low-power laser, soft laser, or therapeutic laser therapy. LLLT administered to the scalp has been shown to improve the health of existing hair, stimulate new hair growth and stop hair loss. LLLT does not break the skin.

The laser light absorbed by the hair follicles in the form of energy, stimulates cell metabolism, eliminates oxygen free radicals and improves blood flow resulting in thicker healthier looking hair and in many hair regrowth. LLLT is often used to stop hair loss in conjunction with hair restoration surgery as a healing method because of its skin repairing properties.

Other Non-Surgical Hair Restoration Treatments

There are literally dozens of other marketed products available which claim to effectively treat hair loss.

The internet inevitably offers some interesting perspectives on how to treat hair loss.

Some treatments, such as Saw Palmetto, Folligen, Emu Oil, Accutane, MHR and Procyte may claim to have had some effect. However, as no controlled studies have been published to provide sound evidence of their effectiveness, we would not wish to approve their use or offer them to our patients.

There are also vitamins available for hair loss such as Kevis, FNS, and Avacor that offer little actual help for those who are serious about overcoming their hair loss.

Before spending your time or money on any hair loss treatment such as vitamins for hair growth, saw palmetto or Emu Oil, be sure to contact a professional Hair Advocate.

Our team can offer a diagnosis of your hair loss and suggest a treatment plan based on scientifically proven methods.
