Hair Loss

Male hair loss typically manifests through a receding hairline and decreased hair density on the scalp or bald patches. This occurs naturally with age, although at different rates and ages for different men. Hair loss in women differs from that of men in its clinical appearance and response to treatment. Female-pattern hair loss presents with diffuse thinning (loss of hair volume) over the middle of the scalp with minimal or no change to the hairline.

Possible Treatments


5FU/Kenalog Injections

5FU and Kenalog are injectable treatments that may be used separately or in combination, depending on the treatment objective. 5FU/Kenalog mixtures improve the appearance of raised keloid scars when injected directly into the scar. Kenalog eliminates pimples or reduces the appearance of raised bumps from silicone injections when injected alone directly into the pimple or silicone.


PRP Injections

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is an injectable treatment. When injected into the scalp, it can promote hair growth. When injected into the face, it can treat skin hollowing, discoloration, and inflammation. Facial injection areas include the tear troughs to address undereye bags or circles and facial hollows in the temples, cheeks, and mouth corners. PRP can also treat scars, injuries, and stretch marks.
