What is non-surgical hair restoration?

Hair transplant surgery is the only option that can provide truly permanent results. However, it is a major procedure with a significant recovery period. For some, non-surgical hair restoration may be a better option. There are several different approaches to treating hair loss non-surgically including the following:

•    Nutrafol supplements
•    Finasteride (Propecia)
•    Compounded topical Propecia/minoxidil 
•    PRP injections

    About Nutrafol

    Nutrafol supplements are a newer option that is not yet FDA-approved. However, they are clinically proven to be effective in reducing hair loss and promoting hair growth. Nutrafol is a safe and natural alternative to minoxidil and finasteride and has no side effects. Nutrafol works by providing the nutrients that your hair needs to grow. It includes vitamins A, C, and D, as well as biotin and zinc. These nutrients help to support the growth of healthy hair. Nutrafol is taken orally, in the form of capsules. The recommended dosage is two capsules per day. Many find it to be a safe and effective option for non-surgical hair restoration.

    About Finasteride (Propecia) and compounded topical Propecia/minoxidil

    • Propecia is a prescription medication used to treat hair loss in men. It is the only FDA-approved medication for male pattern baldness. Propecia works by blocking the production of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a hormone that plays a role in hair loss. DHT is thought to cause hair follicles to miniaturize, or shrink, which leads to thinning hair and eventually hair loss. By inhibiting the production of DHT, Propecia helps to prevent further hair loss and preserve existing hair. Propecia is taken orally, in tablet form, and is usually taken once daily. 
    • Compounded topical Propecia and minoxidil is a compounded substance that works on the same principle as oral Propecia. It is applied topically to reduce the DHT affecting the hair follicles.

    PRP injections and non-surgical hair restoration

    PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a therapy that triggers natural hair growth by reinvigorating dying hair follicles. PRP involves taking a small sample of blood and then separating out the platelets. These platelets are then injected into the scalp, where they stimulate natural hair growth. PRP has been shown to be effective in both men and women and can be used in conjunction with hair transplant surgery, or on its own during the early stages of hair loss.
