What is Hair Loss?
Hair loss is a difficult issue that can greatly impact your confidence and well-being. Fortunately, with many modern advances in the hair restoration industry, it's possible to treat, control, and oftentimes, reverse hair loss. At Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jean-Denis Boucher offers a number of advanced methods, including PRP therapy and low-level laser therapy, to help strengthen the hair follicles and boost the growth and quality of your hair. Regardless of your specific phase of hair loss, from early-stage hair loss to late-stage balding, Dr. Boucher can provide a personalized hair growth treatment plan to help you get your best results. We encourage you to contact one of our San Antonio, TX offices to schedule an appointment.
Hair Loss Causes and Treatments
For some men and women, hair loss is caused by androgenetic alopecia (male and female pattern hair loss), which is driven by genetics, hormone imbalances, and age. Other hair loss causes, which either disrupt hair development or kill the follicles, include scalp and medical conditions, nutrient deficiencies, medication side effects, physical trauma, and hair care products. Hair loss is generally a gradual process that occurs in specific locations on the scalp or all around. To help stabilize hair loss, our clinic provides a range of advanced nonsurgical remedies, including prescription medications, low-level laser therapy (LLLT), and PRP therapy. Dr. Boucher will review your medical history, diet, and hair care routine before creating your personalized treatment plan, which may involve one or more therapies to help you achieve maximum results.
Hair loss FAQs
Does hair loss treatment hurt?
No, our hair loss treatment does not hurt. Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic offers a variety of tools and techniques available for hair loss, and each has its own set of risks and side effects. It's important to discuss your concerns with a professional so you can learn about the potential risks and side effects. Make sure to weigh the pros and cons before making a decision.
Is platelet-rich plasma effective?
Platelet-rich plasma therapy involves extracting a small amount of blood, processing it to isolate the platelets, and then administering it back into the scalp to help stimulate new hair growth. Dr. Boucher can help decide if this therapy is right for you during an assessment, but studies have shown that it can be a safe and effective treatment option for hair loss.
When will I see results from hair loss treatment?
It depends on the treatment you choose at our facility. Some solutions like platelet-rich plasma therapy may show results in a short period, while other methods may take shorter or longer. However, it's important to be patient and allow the treatment time to work. Our San Antonio, TX team can provide an accurate estimate during a consultation.
