If you’re experiencing hair loss, you’re probably wondering if there’s a way to regrow your hair without a hair transplant. You’re not the only one. Many hair loss patients look for hair restoration solutions that don’t involve surgery. But the big question still remains. Can you restore hair without surgery? The answer is yes, but it’s important to manage your expectations and talk to Dr. Keene to get a treatment plan tailored to your needs. Here are some hair loss treatments that don’t require surgery that we offer at Physician’s Hair Institute in Scottsdale and Tucson, Arizona.
Hair Loss Medications
There are only two FDA-approved medications for hair loss – Propecia and Rogaine.
Propecia, also known as finasteride, is an oral medication for male pattern baldness. It works by stopping the conversion of testosterone to DHT, the hormone responsible for hair loss in men with male pattern baldness. However, it’s important to note that Propecia is only effective for male pattern baldness and should not be used by women or children.
Rogaine, also known as minoxidil, is a topical hair loss medication that is available over-the-counter. It works by increasing blood flow to the hair follicles, which can promote hair growth. Rogaine is FDA-approved for both men and women with pattern baldness, which is the most common type of hair loss in both genders. This medication comes in a foam or liquid formulation, and it is applied directly to the scalp twice a day.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP therapy is a non-surgical hair restoration treatment that involves injecting a concentrated solution of the patient’s own platelets into the scalp. Platelets contain growth factors that can promote hair growth and regeneration.
PRP therapy is a safe and natural treatment option for hair loss. The treatment is also minimally invasive, and most patients experience little to no discomfort during the procedure. One of the benefits of PRP therapy is that it can be used in conjunction with other hair loss treatments such as topical medications or hair transplant surgery to enhance results.
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)
SMP is a non-surgical hair restoration treatment that involves applying pigments to the scalp to replicate the appearance of hair follicles, creating the illusion of a fuller head of hair. The procedure can be customized to suit your individual needs, and the pigments used can be matched to any hair color, skin tone, or ethnicity.
Two of the biggest benefits of SMP is that it doesn’t require any surgery and the results are immediate and long-lasting, making it an excellent investment for those seeking a permanent solution to hair loss. You’ll only need to visit us for maintenance or touchups a few times in 3-4 years.
