Hair Loss (Definition)

Hair loss, otherwise known as alopecia, can be caused by different reasons, including damage to the hair shaft or follicles or fungal infections. There are two main types of alopecia.

PRP: I really like PRP in hair that is thinning, but not necessarily to the point of wanting a transplant yet. You can get improvement with just one treatment, but usually really good results with 2-3 treatments, one every 3-4 months. Topical minoxidil and finasteride oral can be helpful as well, but require continuous daily dosing. Light/laser treatments might be helpful also. ...Read more
