Medical Hair Loss Management
Laser Hair Therapy
Laser technology has been a key non-invasive option for hair restoration patients since the mid 1960s. In 1964, Professor Andre Mester was experimenting in Budapest, Hungary with the use of low-level laser energy (“soft,cool” photo light that penetrates the surface of the skin with no heating effect, no damage to the skin and no known negative side effects) to treat skin conditions in diabetic patients.
As he began using his device, he noticed with his patients that sores unable to heal ….were healing. He also observed an accelerated hair growth and thickening of hair in the areas where he used the laser.
Professor Mester’s chance discovery was the beginning of an entire new science devoted to developing practical medical procedures using low-level energy lasers.
Then Low Level Laser Therapy was used for Medical Treatments. Since Professor Mester’s discovery, low level laser therapy technology has continued to evolve. We can now offer convenient in-office and at-home laser care for patients looking to stimulate and restore their thinning hair.
Austin Hair Graft provides the most powerful and effective low level laser therapy devices currently available in the US and International market. The technology is truly state-of-the-art, utilizing 107 laser modules and proprietary control software. The open-hood design and laser pattern is designed to give 100% coverage of the treatment area. This process increases the contact of the laser energy with the hair follicles and is more effective in stimulating hair growth than many hand-held lasers.
PRP for Hair Loss
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy for hair loss is a simple, three-step medical treatment in which a patient’s blood is drawn, processed, and then injected into the scalp.
USING PRP FOR HAIR RESTORATION
The growth factors in PRP stimulate hair follicle activity, and PRP therapy is effective for treating hair loss in both men and women. Injected directly into the scalp, the growth factors in PRP will then signal hair follicles to remain in the growth phase longer, resulting in thicker, fuller hair.
Patients can resume most normal activity that day and price varies from person to person.
Our low level lasers are designed to stimulate hair follicles, enhance hair regeneration, and increase the strength and thickness of hair. The results you can expect with low level laser therapy:
- Hair Regrowth
- Decreased Hair Loss
- Stronger Hair
- The Ability to Grow Longer, Thicker Hair
Low level laser technology restores a natural look and give your hair vitality, strength and stimulation, without any negative side effects. Studies with the device have shown that the low level laser produces an 85% success rate in halting the progression of hair loss. Treatments are administered two to three times per week. Each treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
The Sunetics and Revage 670 Lasers have met the international laser standard for safety. It is a safe, painless, and effective system for both men and women.
Using the DermaScalp Laser Cap is simple and easy. It not only is safe and effective, but this comfortable, hands-free divide is very discreet. To use, simply connect the Laser Cap to the Battery Pack, then place the Laser Cap on your head, and press start to being the preprogrammed treatment.
During a treatment, enjoy light activities such as watching TV, reading a book, being on the computer, or even commuting to work.
The DermaScalp Laser Cap is designed and engineered to regrow hair by increasing cellular activity to heal the dying hair follicles, resulting in thicker, fuller, healthier looking hair.
DermaScalp technology uses photobiostimulation as the primary mechanism to promote hair growth in males and females with normal pattern hair loss.
Healing the hair follicles is a result of the laser energy working in the cells to increase ATP production, cellular regeneration, nutrient acquisition, removal of DHT, enhanced blood flow and reduced inflammation of the fair follicle.
DermaScalp 272 / 80
The DermaScalp Laser Cap utilizes 272 or 80 medical grade laser diodes that are embeded in an insert that completely saturates the scalp to maximize the amount of laser energy that can be absorbed during a treatment. One can choose the 272 or the 80 depending on their needs.
Propecia® and Minoxidil
In some patients, hair loss may be slowed and hair growth stimulated by medical hair loss treatments. The two such treatments approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration are finasteride (Propecia®) and minoxidil (Rogaine®).
Propecia® is an oral medication shown to halt and/or slow hair loss in men. We offer this product to patients experiencing thinning hair or balding. Depending on your stage of hair loss, we may recommend Propecia before, or even after a hair transplantation procedure to maximize your results. Propecia is available only by prescription, and is only for use by male patients.
Minoxidil is a topical treatment available without a prescription. These medical management options may be used separately or in combination, as recommended by Dr. Hall.
Medical treatment can be a good solution to slow the rate of hair loss and preserve an acceptable appearance until further options can be undertaken. Medical treatment is in many cases recommended as a complement to hair transplantation. To find out what treatment is right for you, schedule a consultation with us today; there is no cost or obligation.
LATISSE® is an easy to use, FDA-approved product that helps your lashes grow longer, thicker, and darker. It is a painless, effective treatment to get the eyelashes you’ve always desired.
LATISSE® solution is applied once nightly to the base of your upper eyelashes, or as instructed by your doctor. LATISSE® makes lashes grow because of its active ingredient: bimatoprost. LATISSE® is believed to affect the anagen growth phase of the eyelash cycle in two ways: by increasing the length of this phase and by increasing the number of total hairs during this growing period.
The most common side effects after using LATISSE® solution are an itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness, which were reported in approximately 4% of patients. These may occur immediately after use, but usually last only for a short period of time. LATISSE® solution may cause other less common side effects. These include eye irritation, dryness of the eyes, redness of the eyelids, and in rare cases, mild darkening of skin color around the eye. All symptoms are reported to be reversible after discontinuation of the product.
LATISSE® works gradually and effectively. With consistent nightly application, in as little as 4 weeks you’ll begin to see changes in your lashes. LATISSE® is the first and only FDA-approved, clinically proven product to grow longer, fuller, darker eyelashes. LATISSE® is so effective it can more than double lash fullness within 16 weeks. LATISSE® is available by prescription ONLY. Call our office for more details.
