Medical Hair Loss Management

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® and Minoxidil

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.
