Preventing Hair Loss: How to Slow or Stop Progressive Alopecia
Hair loss happens to both men and women, and it rarely receives a warm welcome. It can be a cause for self-consciousness in many people, but its onset is largely outside of their control as it arises principally from a genetic predisposition. Both sides of the family contribute to heritable alopecia — the clinical term for baldness — and the more instances of hair loss you can chart in your family history, the more likely you are to experience it. Regardless of the reason it occurs, most people want to prevent it from worsening.
Fortunately, there are many treatment options available that can help stem the loss of hair. Our team at Leonard Hair Transplant Associates can create a comprehensive plan using multiple techniques that are not only designed to slow progressive hair loss, but may also stop it entirely and even generate new hair growth. Non-surgical methods such as Rogaine Foam®, Propecia®, Keranique (for women), and low level laser therapy (Capillus Laser Cap) are excellent treatment options if you’re encountering the first stages of hair loss. More advanced therapies, in combination with these treatments, are also available. Pairing traditional and high-tech hair transplantation procedures using the ARTAS® Robotic System or NeoGraft™ Restoration technologies offer new opportunities to restore hair growth.
As leading surgeons in the field of hair restoration, Dr. Robert Leonard and Dr. Matthew Lopresti are well equipped to provide innovative solutions for all types of progressive hair loss, whether genetic in nature or otherwise, using the most advanced technologies available.
