Vitamins and Nutritional Supplementation for Hair Loss
At Ohio Facial Plastics, we recognize the importance of nutrition and diet when it comes to your hair growth. For patients who prefer holistic options to prevent or treat hair loss, Dr. Bapna can suggest specific vitamins and nutritional supplements. Important vitamins and minerals in hair loss treatment include the following:
- Essential Fatty Acids
- Folic Acid
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin E
It is essential that patients follow specific instructions for nutritional supplements because taking too many vitamins can actually do more harm than good.
Non-Surgical Options Using Medications
Medications can provide excellent benefits for patients who are in the early stages of balding or thinning hair. There are two effective and FDA-approved medications for common male pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia): Propecia (oral medication) and Rogaine (topical medication).
Propecia, also known as Finasteride, is a medication that can help block the activity of enzymes that are responsible for converting testosterone into a chemical that causes the hair follicles to shrink. If taken daily, it can help promote hair growth and stop hair loss.
Rogaine is an over-the-counter hair loss solution that comes in the form of a liquid or a foam for topical application. It is best suited for treating androgenic alopecia, a type of hair loss that stems from genetics. It works by expanding the hair follicles to lengthen the duration of their growth phase.
Whether you suffer from the beginning stages of baldness or you want to compliment your hair restoration surgery, Dr. Bapna can help you find the best medication for your specific situation.
Rejuvenate Hair Growth with Laser Therapy
Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is also an excellent over the counter at home option for those who have thinning hair or want to retain their hair transplant results. This involves the use of laser light to stimulate cell growth. The laser targets hair follicles on the scalp to facilitate the production of thicker hair shafts and an overall fuller appearance. LLLT has been cleared by the FDA to effectively treat hair loss in both men and women. Its results have proven more beneficial than medications over the short term. Many low-level laser therapies involve portable devices for patients to use at home, this treatment is not provided by our Doctor but can be done in the convenience of your home. Laser therapy may require around 2 to 4 months before you can see an improvement in hair thickness.
Candidates for Non-Surgical Hair Loss Treatments
Non-surgical hair loss treatments are excellent options for both men and women who want to stop hair loss in their tracks and reclaim a full, healthy head of hair. Since our treatments are non-surgical, almost any patient who is experiencing some form of hair loss can benefit from them.
Your Non-Surgical Hair Loss Treatment Consultation
A non-surgical hair loss consultation will be focused on your hair regrowth goals and your treatment preference. Dr. Sumit Bapna will perform an examination of your head and ask you about your medical history to ascertain the potential cause of your hair loss and help determine if you would make a good candidate for our non-surgical hair loss treatments.
Be ready to take a few tests to help Dr. Bapna determine a safe and effective hair restoration option for you. You may need to change your diet or lifestyle choices if they are affecting your hair health.
Dr. Bapna will customize your treatment to meet your hair appearance and health goals, and a date will be set for your treatment.
Your Non-Surgical Hair Loss Treatment Session
The details of your non-surgical hair loss treatment session will depend on the type of treatment Dr. Bapna recommends for you. Some patients may only need supplements, others may need medication, some may benefit more from a laser treatment. A combination of these treatments can also be prescribed if needed.
After Your Non-Surgical Hair Loss Treatment
Since non-surgical hair loss treatment options are not permanent, hair regrowth can be maintained through regular prescriptions of hair restoration supplements or medication.
Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) for hair restoration is effective if undergone three times a week for six months. After six months, the number of required sessions may change depending on the results you have experienced so far.
How Much do Hair Loss Treatments Cost?
The cost of a hair loss treatment varies from patient to patient and depends on their individual needs. Dr. Bapna will discuss the treatment options available and help select the most appropriate one that best suits your individual needs. At this time, he will discuss the associated costs
