HAIR LOSS TREATMENT VANCOUVER: HAIR LOSS CLINIC
Hair restoration is a sought-after concern that we often address at our Vancouver clinic. It affects many of our patients as they progress through aging. At Sparrow MD, our physician-led team provides a comprehensive list of medically safe and effective therapeutic solutions to address hair loss. This entails medical prescriptions, physician advice, and injectable treatments.One of our most popular treatments at Sparrow MD is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for hair rejuvenation. Our board-certified doctors are qualified to investigate the causes of hair loss and discuss possible remedies. These methods, in general, aid in stimulating hair follicle activity to promote the growth of new, healthy strands free from breaking or thinning.
HAIR LOSS TREATMENTS AT SPARROW MD
At Sparrow MD, we offer a range of comprehensive hair loss treatments to address the diverse needs of our patients. They are complimentary to one another to enhance hair growth. These include:
Microneedling can be used to treat hair loss. There is good evidence that in patients with alopecia areata, microneedling can stimulate the scalp and treat hair loss. This process works by promoting the regeneration of healthy hair follicles. The skin reacts to puncture wounds by increasing blood flow to the affected area and producing collagen to help the wounds heal. In addition to producing collagen in the skin, microneedling helps to stimulate stem cells in the hair follicles, which may result in the growth of new hair.
At Sparrow MD, our doctors will decide to prescribe topical medications, such as minoxidil and medicated shampoos, which are essential components of the treatment strategy for hair loss. Vasodilators like minoxidil are frequently used to increase blood flow to hair follicles, which encourages the growth of new hair. It is immediately administered to the scalp and has been shown in clinical studies to promote hair growth in all genders. At our clinic, we also offer specially formulated medicinal shampoos. These shampoos frequently have active components that help to cleanse the scalp, clear excess sebum, and provide the best conditions possible for healthy hair development.
Exosomes applied to the scalp are an excellent source for rejuvenating hair loss. Growth factors and messenger molecules found in exosomes can promote hair follicle growth. Angiogenesis, another mechanism exhibited by exosomes, improves the health of the scalp. It is a minimally intrusive method for treating hair loss. Exosome concentration can be changed for best effects, and the therapy can be strengthened by combining it with other hair restoration procedures like microneedling or PRP hair treatment.
Oral medications such as finasteride may be a part of your personalized treatment plan. Oral drugs treat underlying causes of hair loss, such as hormone imbalances or nutritional deficiencies if they are correctly given based on each patient's needs. Finasteride works by preventing the body from producing a hormone (Dihydrotestosterone) that attacks the prone hair follicles. As a result, it slows down the rate of hair loss and promotes the creation of new hair. Finasteride can take about four months to start working, but it could take up to a year before you see any noticeable hair growth. It is often combined with PRP treatments for the best effect.
Our physicians at Sparrow MD, Dr. Zhai and Dr. Van Dewark can provide valuable advice on lifestyle changes, nutritional support, and treatment plans for best addressing hair loss. Combining oral medication with professional advice enables a comprehensive and customized approach to treating hair loss, focusing on both external therapies and internal aspects that support our patient's general health.
