Hair loss is an incredibly common cosmetic problem, and that’s good news! Not only does it mean that you aren’t alone if you have hair loss, but it means that researchers have invested a lot of time into treatment options because of the large potential impact they can have. Today, there are many more ways to minimize your hair loss and stimulate new hair growth than you probably realize.
Everyone knows about Rogaine®, but there are plenty of other ways to rejuvenate your hairline too. Consider these top non-surgical procedures our team is proud to offer at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta.
Microneedling with Natural Growth Factors
Microneedling is a highly versatile treatment that is used for hair restoration as well as facial rejuvenation. For hair growth, microneedling stimulates your body’s natural healing process to nourish and revitalize your dormant hair follicles. Most importantly, though, it creates tiny pathways that allow us to apply specialized products in a way that reaches the deeper levels of our skin. Those products can reach your hair follicles to stimulate growth in follicles that have stopped or slowed their hair production.
One way we create exceptional results with scalp microneedling is by using the natural growth factors your body produces. We take a sample of your blood and process it in a centrifuge to separate out the plasma that is rich in growth factors. When those growth factors reach your hair follicles and surrounding areas with the help of microneedling, they stimulate growth and renewal.
AnteAGE® MD Hair Restoration
The AnteAGE® MD procedure starts with microneedling, much like our treatment with your natural growth factors. Instead of extracting growth factors from your blood, though, AnteAGE® MD offers a unique growth factor serum that is specifically designed to initiate new hair growth and reawaken dormant follicles. For continued results, we also offer at-home maintenance products from AnteAGE® MD.
Red Light Therapy
A fully non-invasive way to reduce hair loss and often stimulate new hair growth is with red light therapy. For this treatment, researchers have isolated a specific wavelength of light that stimulates and activates dormant hair follicles. During the procedure, our hair restoration specialists apply this particular wavelength of light to your scalp over the course of several sessions. We also offer products that allow you to have low-level red light therapy at home, like LaserCap®.
Regenerative Cell Therapy
We’ve talked about how microneedling works with natural growth factors as well as the growth factor serum of AnteAGE® MD. Another similar option is regenerative cell therapy with XoGlo®. XoGlo® is a cutting-edge way to introduce growth factors to your hair follicles with the help of microneedling. In fact, the procedure introduces over 1000 growth factor proteins with this advanced serum. Regenerative cell therapy is typically performed in a series of three treatments to provide you with the best results.
You may not be familiar with finasteride, but you may have heard it by the brand names Propecia® or Proscar®. By any name, this prescription hair restoration medication is an FDA-approved way to treat your hair loss at home. Our specialists will often prescribe oral finasteride to maintain and enhance your results from hair restoration procedures. Additionally, we have a special topical prescription compound that includes finasteride among other important medicines that work together to provide a topical option for those who prefer this method.
Supplements for Hair Growth
In addition to professional treatments and prescription medications, there are specific supplements that have been designed to support hair growth and minimize hair loss. Viviscal® Professional is a supplement that has a successful track record with our patients at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta, so our hair loss specialists can determine if it is a good fit for your needs.
Scalp micropigmentation takes a different approach to help hair loss. Rather than reducing hair loss and stimulating hair growth, micropigmentation camouflages the appearance of hair loss. Using a precise tattoo-like process, our experienced scalp micropigmentation specialist applies pigment that mimics the appearance of hair follicles and stubble. This treatment is highly effective in hiding areas of thinning hair and small patches of hair loss, and it reduces the appearance of scars in your scalp as well.
If you’ve noticed that your hair is thinning, don’t put your confidence on the back burner. The earlier you consult with our non-surgical hair restoration specialists, the better we can determine the best way to reduce your hair loss and often stimulate new hair growth as well.
