Hair plays a significant role in our society. It is associated with youthfulness and beauty in women and virility and masculinity in men.  But nearly 80 million people – men and women – struggle with hair loss.  True, baldness has become somewhat of a popular option for men and some embrace their baldness.  But it should be no surprise that hair loss can make many men and women feel self-conscious. The causes of hair loss are varied, and include heredity, disease, hormones and stress.  The good news is there are more solutions for treating hair loss than ever so nearly everyone that wants it can have a full head of hair.

For a large number of men, hair loss seems like an inevitable consequence of aging. Some men began noticing thinning and significant hair loss in their 20’s and 30’s but most men will experience it to some degree as the years roll by. For women, hair loss can be devastating.  There is a deep personal relationship between hair and self-esteem.  Thinning hair can cause deep embarrassment if left untreated.

In most cases, hair loss is a treatable condition that you can control. Restoring and regrowing hair can help you feel more youthful and sexy, while also contributing to your overall wellbeing and self-confidence. Thanks to a range of safe and effective treatments, it is not something you just have to live with.

If you want a beautiful new head of hair in this New Year consider a strategy that includes these non-surgical options:

Platelet rich Plasma (PRP):  PRP contains your body’s natural healing elements and growth factors within the platelets in your blood.  This mixture is collected, concentrated and painlessly injected into your scalp to rejuvenate the follicles and stimulate hair regrowth during a simple 1 hour procedure.

Laser hair therapy:  FDA cleared low level lasers are simple to use and have been proven to enhance hair thickness and quality

Topical and oral medication:  Specially compounded medications such as topical minoxidil (Formula 82M) and an oral Finasteride based option (FinnPlus) are superior with fewer side effects Than the over the counter versions.
