The Best Non-surgical Treatments for Hair Loss

The Best Non-surgical Treatments for Hair Loss

Although hair loss is not a medical problem, it can have psychological implications that affect your quality of life. Advancements in cosmetic treatments have unveiled non-surgical procedures for reversing baldness. Liondale Medical applies nutritional planning to augment non-invasive New York hair loss therapies.

PRP micro-needling therapy

PRP (Platelet-rich Plasma) infuses growth factors into the scalp. Platelets contain protein compounds and growth factors that can repair damaged tissue. By injecting it into the scalp, it stimulates hair follicle tissue regeneration.

PRP extracts the platelet sample from the patient’s body, making it safer with a lower risk of rejection. Your provider will place a blood sample into a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the plasma. A plasma sample with a high concentration of platelets is reintroduced in the target area.

PRP is considered one of the best minimally-invasive procedures for androgenic alopecia. Also known as male and female pattern baldness, the condition is caused by genetic factors and aging. Balding happens when the hair follicle sack begins to shrink. Since the follicles can no longer provide support, hair starts to fall out.

Activating growth factors improve circulation and increase hair shaft thickness. Research suggests PRP can reverse balding and promote hair regrowth. However, the results may vary depending on the individual’s health profile and lifestyle factors.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy

BHRT (Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy) is a treatment that addresses hair loss due to hormonal changes in men and women. A hormonal imbalance during perimenopause and menopause can lead to balding. It is caused by a drop in estrogen and progesterone, which facilitate hair growth.

A drop in progesterone slows down hair growth and promotes androgen production. Androgen makes the follicles shrink, causing the hair to fall. The hormonal imbalance may increase facial hair in women.

BHRT uses hormones derived from plants and processed to mimic your body’s natural hormones. They are considered the most accurate imitation of the real thing. That means they are less likely to cause complications compared to other synthetic hormone replacement alternatives.

Your provider will create a mix of plant-derived compounds to manage hormonal imbalances. A medical assessment is essential for avoiding side effects. It may involve discussing expectations before the procedure, which reduces the risk of unsatisfactory outcomes.

Nutritional management to reverse hair loss

Your hair needs certain nutrients to prevent hair follicles from shrinking and promote hair growth. Research shows protein deficiency can affect the hair’s growth rate and volume.

Biotin is a compound found in eggs, which facilitates the production of the essential hair protein keratin. Vitamins A, C, and D, and omega-3 and -6, are anti-inflammatory agents that reduce hair follicle damage.

Your provider can formulate a nutritional plan to promote hair growth. Your health status will inform the best strategies to address hair loss.

The treatment may include lifestyle adjustments like quitting smoking and adopting a healthy diet. Healthcare practitioners utilize data from your medical assessment to establish the best combination of treatment protocols.
