Utah Hair Loss: Non-Surgical Options for Hair Restoration

Non-surgical hair restoration options are becoming more popular because individuals are wanting to stay ahead and prevent as much hair loss as possible before needing more invasive interventions like a hair transplant procedure. Utah Facial Plastics offers the newest cutting-edge techniques for non-invasive hair restoration.

Medications

There are a variety of prescription and over-the-counter medications that can slow down the thinning process and increase coverage of the scalp. The most common medications that are recommended are Propecia (finasteride) and Rogaine (minoxidil).

Propecia is a prescription medication that is typically prescribed to men. However, the medication can be prescribed to women who are past their children bearing years. Propecia is available in both an oral and topical form. The topical form is becoming exceedingly popular because the side effects have been shown to be significantly less common. After approximately 3 months of use, individuals will begin to notice a thicker, fuller scalp.

Rogaine is an over-the-counter topical medication that is available in two different strengths. The regular solution can be applied twice a day and is appropriate for both men and women. Rogaine Extra Strength is the second solution and can also be applied twice a day but can only be used to treat male pattern baldness. Rogaine works by helping slow the process of male or female pattern baldness by strengthening and thickening existing hair follicles.

When both of these powerful medications are used together consistently, over 90% of individuals can expect to see a significant reduction of hair loss. These medications do need to be used long term, as once they are stopped hair loss will become apparent again.

Hair Injection Therapy with ACell

Hair Injection Therapy with ACell is a non-invasive treatment that requires injections with platelet rich plasma (PRP) which is obtained when drawing a patient’s blood. Platelet rich plasma has the ability to preserve the patient’s existing hair as well as thicken hair. ACell is an FDA-approved powder substance that stimulates cells through growth factors and nutrients. When combined with PRP treatments, dormant follicular tissues are regenerated. This treatment boosts the effects of PRP and improves the quality of hair growth.

Results are noticeable after approximately 6-12 weeks with continued improvement after one year of treatment. One treatment is typically recommended however, two may be recommended after the first year.
