For men, losing their hair can be one of the first signs of aging. Hair loss can have a negative effect on your self-image and can be mostly attributed to genetics and occasionally to thyroid gland problem. The Griffin Center of Hair Restoration and Research offers various surgical, non-surgical, and cosmetic treatments for hair replacement including:
Cosmetics: Colored sprays, or rub-on dyes are an alternative to surgical procedures. Certain shampoos can give the hair a thicker look and texture, or researching specific styling techniques can give you tips on creating the appearance of thicker hair.
Hair Transplantation by Microscope-Assisted Follicular Grafting: During this treatment, donor hair follicles are gathered from the side or back of the head (non-balding areas) and are genetically coded to remain intact and avoid further genetic pattern loss.
Follicular Unit Extraction with NeoGraft™: The procedure is minimally invasive and removes follicular units (bundles containing one to four hairs) in tiny circular punches from a selected donor area. The hair is generally taken from donor sites located at the back and sides of the scalp.
Rogaine®: Rogaine slows down the balding process and by continuing regular application day-to-day; you’ll begin to see results with limited side effects.
Finasteride: Treats male pattern baldness and has proven successful for certain hair loss patients who experienced 30-40 percent re-growth of hair. Additionally studies showed an increased percentage of patients who saw a decrease in hair loss.
