When you begin to notice that your hair is thinning or your hairline is receding, it can be devastating. While it is more common as you get older, many people experience hair loss starting in the twenties or thirties. If your hair loss is affecting your self-confidence, you deserve to look at all your options to stimulate new hair growth. At Avance Hair Transplant in the Reno and Lake Tahoe, NV area, we have non-surgical treatments for hair loss – here are six of our most popular options.
Not everyone needs to explore hair transplant surgery or more intense hair loss procedures. In the early stages, many of our patients respond very well to medications for hair loss. These include oral medications like finasteride for men, or topically-applied minoxidil for men or women.
2. PRP Injections
Platelet-rich plasma or PRP has been used for decades for wound healing in surgical settings, but it was not widely available until the last decade. This substance is derived from a patient’s own blood, filtering out the valuable platelets and growth factors that can stimulate tissue repair, including damaged hair follicles. We offer this procedure which can be valuable on its own or combined with other treatments such as microneedling, which also helps rejuvenate hair follicles.
3. Stem Cell Injections
Stem cells are excellent at providing tissue and skin with the ability to repair. Hair loss is often due to damaged or diseased hair follicles that need repair to begin producing new hair. Stem cell injections have been shown to provide wonderful hair growth benefits for many of our patients. We offer both bone marrow and micro-droplet fat stem cell injections for hair loss at our clinic.
4. Laser Therapy
Low-level laser therapy is one of the non-invasive hair loss treatment options that is wonderful for men or women with pattern baldness. It is a painless procedure that only take about 20-30 minutes and no downtime is required. Light energy can stimulate collagen and other factors in the skin or hair follicles that can result in renewed hair growth. Multiple sessions, usually once a week, are recommended for the best results.
Microneedling uses tiny needles to create controlled wounds on the skin or scalp. This triggers collagen production that can help repair damaged hair follicles. While it can be used on its own, as earlier stated, is most effective when combined with other treatments like PRP injections.
There are oral supplements that can support hair growth such as Nutrafol. This supplement provides the nutritional factors that can impact healthy hair growth but may not be as effective as some other therapies when used by itself.
You do not need to accept hair loss as a part of life. There are so many surgical and non-surgical options that are now available that have proven results. To learn more about our hair loss treatments, contact us at Avance Hair Transplant in the Reno, NV area.
