Treatments

Finasteride

Finasteride is a medication for male pattern baldness. It prevents testosterone from converting to DHT. In male pattern baldness, hairs at the top of the head are often sensitive to DHT. Taking Finasteride may reduce hair loss in men by reducing DHT levels. Finasteride is an oral medication taken daily at home.

Scalp micropigmentation

Like tattooing, scalp micropigmentation uses pigmented inks to replicate the appearance of hair on the scalp. This technique can fill in areas of thinning or to enhance hair transplantation results. When performed by a hair restoration superspecialist, scalp micropigmentation can create natural-looking hair-like results.

Minoxidil

Minoxidil is a hair loss treatment for men and women, applied topically to help regrow hair on the scalp. We are still learning about how Minoxidil works, but the prevailing theory is that it dilates blood vessels on the scalp to improve hair follicle function. With regular use, Minoxidil can be effective in slowing hair loss and regrowing hair. If you discontinue Minoxidil, you will continue losing your hair.

Other Treatments

Non-surgical treatments for hair loss can be highly effective for some patients, but they aren’t always the best fit. 

Hair transplantation may be more successful for your hair restoration goals if:

  • You have significant hair loss or patches of balding
  • You have a receding hairline
  • You want a permanent, longer-lasting solution to hair loss

A board-certified dermatologist and a triple-board-certified plastic surgeon founded our practice, allowing our patients to explore a fuller range of hair loss solutions. We can help you determine if non-surgical treatments are likely to achieve your aesthetic goals or if you are a better candidate for surgery. 

Considerations

Dr. Chaffoo or Dr. Stuart may recommend non-surgical treatments as a complement to surgical procedures. They may use these methods to extend the results of hair transplantation or reduce shedding.

FAQ

Are non-surgical hair restoration treatments long-lasting?

Non-surgical treatments for hair loss can be highly effective in many patients. Many of our patients use non-surgical options to extend and maintain the results from hair transplantation or to delay surgical treatments until hair loss is more advanced. Once we’ve created your customized treatment plan, we can help you understand how long these options may work for you.

When should I start non-surgical hair restoration?

Non-surgical treatments for hair loss are most effective when they begin early. By the time you have noticeable hair loss, you may have already lost 50% of the hair in that area. If you’re noticing changes in your hair, hairline, or loss patterns, see a hair loss specialist as soon as possible. Non-surgical treatments may be able to halt or slow hair loss.

Can women receive non-surgical hair loss treatments?

Non-surgical hair loss treatments are popular with our female and male patients alike.

Why should I choose California Hair MD for hair loss treatments?

California Hair MD specializes in hair restoration and is one of the most trusted centers for hair restoration in the U.S. A dermatologist and a plastic surgeon founded our center to provide our patients with the latest medical information about medications and surgical hair loss treatments. Since we have a board-certified dermatologist available, our patients have access to many medical treatments that may be unavailable at other hair restoration practices. Our board-certified plastic surgeon and hair restoration specialist can offer hair transplantation services, including NeoGraft®  and ARTAS® , to patients who need it

Will I need downtime after non-surgical hair loss treatments?

Most non-surgical treatments for hair restoration require little to no downtime. Many times, these treatments are topical or oral medications you can use as part of your daily life to slow hair loss progression. Side effects are minimal and do not typically interfere with the ability to work, exercise, or participate in other activities. If you will need any recovery time after your treatment, we will let you know beforehand, so you can plan for time off work.
