What to do once hair loss sets in?
- Posted on: Jul 1 2019
Hair loss can be a really stressful experience in a persons lifetime. Luckily, we have solutions that can actually counteract the effects. Both female and male patients come to us during the early stages of hair loss for treatments that can help stabilize the loss they were previously experiencing. We also see patients with hair follicles that have gone completely dormant and balding in certain areas of the scalp has taken place. So what do you do once once hair loss sets in?
Make a Timeline
Hair loss is a gradual process and it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly how much hair you’ve lost. We recommend making a timeline which can help a patient gauge how much hair they’ve actually lost over the a certain amount of time period. A good way to start a timeline is with photos. Photos will help determine how much hair has been lost and what areas of the head have been effected.
Short-Term Hair Loss Solution
If you have thinning hair or a receding hairline, a short-term solution would be a simple haircut. Unless you plan on being “bald” for the rest of your life, this is a short-term solution because hair loss does gradually gets worse. But in the mean time, a new hairstyle will make you look younger and will give you time to discuss long-term solutions with your hair restoration provider.
Is Hair Loss Effecting Your Self-Esteem?
Once hair loss starts to effect your self-confidence then you may want to consider more than just a new hair style. There are both surgical and non-surgical hair restoration options that can improve the quality of your life.
Long-Term Hair Loss Solutions
At UFP Hair Restoration, we offer a multiple of long-term solutions for hair loss. Our non-surgical hair restoration options include PRP+ ACell injections and scalp micropigmentation.

All of the solutions listed above are long-term and can help both men and women in different stages of hair loss.
Scheduling a Hair Restoration Consultation
Once you are ready to learn more, it’s important to schedule a consultation with a well-qualified and experienced hair restoration specialist. Going to the right surgeon is crucial so make sure you review their credentials, before and afters photos and don’t be afraid to ask about their success rate with the different hair restoration options they may be recommending.
