  • MEDICAL TREATMENT OVERVIEW

    There are currently three FDA-approved medical treatments for hair loss, Minoxidil (Rogaine®) and Finasteride (Propecia®), and Low Level Light Therapy. Dutesteride (Avodart®), is similar to Finesteride but has not been officially approved by the FDA for hair loss. In addition to the above, recently there has been a lot of interest in more controversial, less proven, adjunctive therapies such as Platelet Rich Plasma(PRP) & ACELL matrix therapy

    In order to obtain maximum density now and in the future, it is important to use adjunctive medical therapy to preserve existing native hair. Medical therapy may bring back some lost hair, but just as important, it is slowing down or stopping future loss. The use of medical therapy can affect surgical planning in a number of ways. Sometimes the response is so good that patients decide they don’t need surgery. Sometimes it improves the situation so a smaller, less aggressive procedure is needed. Even if medical therapy is only minimally effective, a small amount of regrowth can significantly improve the appearance of density in transplanted areas.
